Tropical Wedding Centerpiece on a Budget
  • SumoMe

Have a destination wedding at home or just a fun luau and keep it on a budget.

This tropical centerpiece uses water beads (water gel crystals) for the vase filler in lovely brilliant colors that coordinate with the flowers. Fresh flowers are elegant and lovely, but artificial flowers will add lots of color to your festive event and saves money.

Once you pick out your flowers, select the colors you want to use as your vase filler. The water beads need to be soaked in water. Soaking overnight is best. Follow the directions on your package. A little goes a long way. A teaspoon of water beads will hydrate enough to fill a small 4 inch round vase. If you use fresh flowers, add water to cover their stems to keep them fresh.

You can find a great selection of water beads at or other craft retailers.
