We just found out the fire code for our area doesn't permit any open flames indoors, not even candles inside hurricane glass. We were planning on using candles as a less expensive alternative to floral arrangements at our reception venue. We have 14 round tables with nothing to put in the middle! Any thoughts on a budget-friendly alternative to candles or flowers from the florist? We looked up flameless candles, but they are so much more expensive that to get the effect you want you might as well do flowers.
