DIY: Table centerpieces made for conversation

Here is a budget friendly, easy table decoration.

I went to my local thrift store and bought almost all of their small glass vases or things that I could use as vases. Now the trick was because I was using these to decorate a table at a restaurant they needed to be slim and short so not to interfere with conversations to be had at my event. So I spent about $7.00 total for the vases, I bought to many. I had the silk roses already at home so they were free for this project. I spent $7.00 for seven picture frames and another $1.00 for a black & white polka dot table cloth that I used in my picture frames. Total spent $15.00 for a priceless experience. I gave each person the picture frames  and a vase of flowers as a parting gift.

All my supplies, flowers, vases,picture frame & table cloth

You can use any glass containers that you may have around the house.

 I didn't have anything that was small enough.

In folded all the stems so they would fit. I didn't mind the stems showing
through the glass. I didn't want to cut them because I could use them again.

Picture frames with cut out square from the  table cloth inserted. 
You can use scrap booking paper as well. 
I didn't want to spend the money for the paper, since it would be removed later.

The stunning results, everyone in the restaurant was looking at our table!
