Need your advice! Everything is almost done EXCEPT for the cocktail table decors….
I want to take on a DIY for this because floral arrangements are just too expensive for this one hour but I just can’t fathom not doing anything at all to these tables.
So, with the help of Save-on-Crafts, I came up with two possibilities. I can do birdcages and decorate them with simple flowers myself or do apothecary jars filled with candy. The only thing with the second candy jars is that I’ve never seen anyone place these alone on each table. Everyone has done them buffet style and my point is to do something to each table themselves. What do you all think? Any suggestions???

I think it’s a great idea to put jars of candy as the centerpieces of a table. It’ll encourage mingling too–people can walk around and try out all the tables.
I did some looking at non-floral centerpieces and realized it is all about the variety of elements in the center of a table. Have some high, some low, different visual textures, and it’ll look great.

That’s what I’m doing! I went (and sent my mom) on a search for different jars to use for candy from goodwill and salvation army.
We’re going to use different types of candy as the centerpieces along with some votives. I’m also making cute little signs to encourage guests to mingle to other tables to check out what other types of candy is around because they will also double as favors.

I think one of the blogging bees is doing this. I can’t remember which one…I think she might be using it as her table names. I think it’ll be really cute and hopefully will encourage your guests to mingle. Although, I personally probably wouldn’t walk up to another table and get candy unless the table was empty with everyone at the dance floor.
