Been meaning to post this and its really the simplest but most elegant looking centerpieces that I have ever seen.  My SO created them for my sister's bridal shower since we wanted something simple but pretty to put on the tables. 



He basically found mirrors, bowls, and blue stones at the dollar store.  It was like $1 per bowl, mirror and bag of stones.  Then we bought an orchid plant and some flowers for the rest.  And we just happened to have some distilled water (which eliminates oxidation of the water) lying around to fill it with.

And everybody loved them which was the best part.

I'm hoping to do something like this for my wedding, only using real fish.  I hope to get guppies and then use them as "friends" for my turtle.  They'll be gone in a month, haha.

Love the use of mirrors!

I was planning something like this for my wedding also, but I'm not a big fan of flowers so I was thinking floating candles. Such a pretty and simple way to spruce up the tables!

I'm not sure if fish=centerpiece is a good idea.  Guests have a tendency to mess with centerpieces when bored (I've been a guest to quite a few weddings, I speak from experience) and I'm sure some bad things will happen to some of those fish, whether it's some tipsy relative trying to swallow it or a person spilling the centerpiece, etc.  Maybe those things won't actually happen; it just seems like you're inviting trouble to have a live animal as a decorative accent.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
