Inspired by the economic downturn, Greg Jenkins, partner at Long Beach, Calif.-based Bravo Productions (bravoevents-online.com
), created this simple but elegant centerpiece for a corporate client that can be easily replicated:
• Print and cut out enough copies of the company's logo to match the number of vases you need. Have the logos laminated between two sheets of acetate at your local print and copy shop.
• Affix the logos inside the glass cylinder, and fill with water and food coloring. Place the vase atop a battery-operated, illuminated base.
Costs: LED light base, $9 each with an order of 50, from littlebrightlights.com
; 10-inch glass cylinder vase, $3.29 each, from save-on-crafts.com
