Look for Less: Lampshade Centerpieces

Want to create a stunning centerpiece that combines height and flowers? This centerpiece is a notch up from your traditional flower filled vase.  I tried to put together some of the items that make up the Look.  Both Looks have lampshades with a light, which I have not included in the less. But here is a price comparison without the light but of course you can add your own source of light.

***Update: found a DIY lampshade centerpiece tutorial on   
 ** Disclaimer: I have not tried this method myself, but wanted to offer how someone else was able to achieve this look, though there may be other options.               
        The Look: 
Flared Vases with Lampshade

White lampshades topped glass vases filled with water and strands of crystals. Pink light bulbs lit the shades creating a pink-hued glow throughout the space. The display sat on mirrored light boxes.

Price Comparisons for the Lampshade Centerpieces

*****Update lowe's no longer carries these shades. But offer an affordable option for only $7.88. Go to site and type lampshades for more options. Also try your local retail stores, such as Target, Marshall's, Ross but even cheaper Goodwill!*****

With a little time equity you can create your Look for Less....a lot less.
Feel free to comment on this Look:)


  1. I love the look wanted this for my son wedding but thought it was just to expensive to make. But will be using this look now that I know.

  2. How did you get the lamp shade to sit on top of the vase.

  3. I love it! How did you make the lamp shade?

  4. Where did you find the lamp shade? I have been looking everywhere for something simple like that in the $15 price range.

  5. Sorry for the late response, I haven't visited my page in some time. Apparently the Lowe's lamp shade is no longer available but I did find a cheaper alternative through A few months ago I found cheap ones at Target and Goodwill. A lil hit or miss though;)

  6. Love Lamp Shade wedding centerpieces. Any ideas for that detail information about price & product ? thanks
