Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm thinking of 'Havannah Blue'. I love yellow and blue since FH and I went to Cuba a couple of years ago.

Sorry, not much help, but will put my thinking cap on.

Okay, how about some kind of clear vase with blue stones in the bottom and nice yellow flowers.

Kind of pictured a vase that is short, rounded, with a short lip, with 'havannah' blue glass beads in the bottom, water just above the beads a inch or 2, yellow roses etc. or some type of flower that fits together nicely in a 'round boquet', will see the stalks in the water, maybe a nice striped blue and yellow ribbon around the neck of the vase.

Or, a tall clear vase with yellow Glads and blue beads in the bottom. Vase has to be tall enough so that people can see around it.

I always love things that involve floating flowers, or floating candles.

Thanks ladies, those are great inspirations.
I have been seeing vases on sale lately but I havent been able to envision what I can do with them. I will have to study these pictures.

You could do something with live fish for a beach or tropical theme

I'm also a blue (aqau) and yellow beach themed bride Here a few non-flower ideas I'm collected.






I think I'm going to do a round bubble bowl with sand, shells and starfish with a tealight in it. I'm also making table runners, which the centerpieces will sit on (thus incorporating the blue color). There will be more tealights and shells and starfish scatted on the table runner.

I love the idea of having fish bowls, we thought about that ourselves...just one question, what do you do with all those fish after??

I would defenitely go with some kind of glass vase, and you could put blue or yellow sand in it with the opposite color for the candle and a few seashells scattered in the sand...something along those lines would be classy, yet still incorporate the beach theme.

Good luck making the center-pieces

I love this post, full of mega awesome ideas. Thanks ladies for all ur pics!

Here are our centerpieces; our theme is "Under The Sea" 50's prom style. Very ocean-y, no? The candleholder part is from Superstore & was 1/2 price @ $3.50! (Oh, and the pics show a blue candle in there b/c that's all I had on hand.) Also, there is white & aqua beach glass, shells (which I will give a coast of spray Verathane to shine 'em up), and a few pearls all on a base of 'sea grass' (those green grassy things from the florists & placemats from Pier 1). All this will be sitting on round table with all white linens.

Here it is in the dark (sorry, the pic doesn't do it justice):


Don't worry, we will have some flowers around the hall: pincushion proteas & bird of paradise submerged in water in big tall vases (like the orchids on the set of Tyra Bank's talk show!) I'll post some pics when we have purchased the containers for those.

In case anyone is looking for fun/casual ideas I have 2 different centrepieces that I will be using for my afternoon beach BBQ reception. The photos are a bit off with the bright sun behind but hopefully you get the idea.

The buckets will be filled with chips, cheesies etc and there will be 2 per table, I am hoping to make labels with our monogram to put on the buckets.



In between the buckets will be the glasses with M&Ms.



While we are getting pictures taken there will be coffee and the buckets will have timbits in them. After the BBQ, the buckets and frisbees will be favours for the kids to play with.
