For one of your table options grouping floating candle vases together is a pretty option for a non-floral centerpieces. To add the "wow", tint the water in some of the vases a dark purple and some a light purple and float gold candles.
Balloons taped to a wall to resemble by bubbles. This would be awesome at a bridal shower or another kind of party with a champagne bar. Love this idea! Use pearlescent colors for an adult party and primary colors for a kids' party.
