I am trying to stick to a budget of under $10 per centerpiece, but it seems nearly impossible. I do not want to deal with live flowers myself Pinterest just showed a lot of expensive things with people calling them cheap (some I know would cost about $200+!). I did find one that was promising but after getting a vase that'll probably be $10 on its own, it'd probably be $25 (Attaching the photo). It's cute, but I'd rather just pay $40-50 for something else from a florist than to put so much work to save just $10-20 each. If you find a similar vase for about $5, let me know. I haven't even found a similar one yet.
Other than that, I'd love some centerpiece ideas. The wedding is in September 2014, but I really DON'T want anything fall-themed. Or beach-themed. Or rustic-chic. The cheapest thing I could find is taking a few granny smith apples, cutting a piece out of the top and dropping tea light candles in there. It's interesting but kind of boring. My colors are purple (bridesmaids/groomsmen vests) and gold/champagne (my dress--gold sash, light gold under ivory lace). I haven't decided if I'm doing purple or gold table runners.
