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 inanyeventblog.wordpress.com   
                                        
 ** 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 walmart.com 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.

  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 Walmart.com. A few months ago I found cheap ones at Target and Goodwill. A lil hit or miss though;) http://www.walmart.com/ip/23760352?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227017357578&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=t&wl3=41023992872&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=79043534552&veh=sem
