Retirement Party Table- On the Cheap!

Hi All, it has been a couple weeks since my last post, I have just been so busy with everything I haven't had a chance to post anything. 

A few weeks ago I was asked to help with a retirement party decor, particularly with the table. I was on a very limited budget of $10/table.

Here's my plan, a lot of bank for the buck:

Bright colors, by using bright colors a smaller centerpiece feels much larger.

Cheap materials, my secret weapon, the dollar store.

Here's how I started:

Glass Vases- $1

Floral foam- $1 for 6, used 1/2 per vase so about $.08/vase

Sticks - $1/vase

Flowers- $5/ bunch- Walmart pre-order. :)

Table Runners- $1.75 each, here, with $5 coupon code. :)

Silver Chargers- $1 each

For a grand total of $9.85, Because I had a few cents left over I decided to add some rocks to each vase.

Here's the process: Sorry about the pic's it was the night before the party. :)

Then I started adding the flowers from the bouquet:

Here is another:

I don't have a picture of the finished table. But this is my prototype:

Took me a while to figure what to do for 10 bucks. I think it turned out great!
