Simple Cylinder Centerpieces

Clients ask us all the time for easy, inexpensive centerpiece ideas! These centerpieces all incorporate glass cylinder vases and could easily be done by anyone without knowledge of floral design!
This centerpiece includes a 24” tall, 14” tall and 10” tall cylinder. River rocks were placed in the bottom to anchor the tulip stems. Floating candles were placed at the top. The second centerpiece looks very modern! Iridescent gems were placed in the bottom of a 10” glass cylinder to anchor two mini callas. Two small floating candles added a special glow.

Love this grouping of glass cylinders. Use hot glue to secure satin ribbon around the top of the cylinder and attach a silk flower. You can find both of these items at your local craft store. We’ve found a lot of silk flowers in the scrapbooking section as well! Add water and a floating candle and voila! This would really make a statement on an entry table or food table.

Look in your pantry for inspiration! These centerpieces feature dried split peas and pinto beans as fillers. Other filler ideas include coffee beans, cotton, sand, crystals – the possibilities are endless!

It can't get much easier than this! Simply add rose petals (real or fake) to the bottom of the cylinder and top with a candle.
