I like this as a starting point.  However, I would do something to dress up the jars.  Maybe the twine like you said or maybe ribbon? I also think it might be nice to put something under your centerpiece like a runner or square.

I think it’s really cute! Very country-chic :).

Are these the flowers you will be using? Or just a mockup? Personally I rather no flowers than fake, but that is a personal opinion that it cheapens up the look. I think it can look elegant without flours if they are not in your budget.

 

@Nola: a nice ribbon tied around the neck is a good idea.  Even decopage the white jar possibly

a great start! is that the tablecloth you’ll be using? i think a piece of wood under everything would look really good.

I think it looks good! Its simple, but chic! I would do twine over ribbon. And personally I would not add table squares or runners; I am from the school of thought that in certain occasions simplicity is the best for a more clean look.

Now, I agree w/ Kitzy and I do love the idea of a wooden box, or even something like a small tree sliver/stump like this underneath would give a nice accent, while keeping the look clean.

@kitzy:  What a great idea!  I think a slab of wood would look great.

I think it will come together. I would prefer replacing the tealights in the jars with a single flower( or two) , and using  a few votives on the table. Perhaps have lace covers on the votive holders.

Or, use votives instead of tealights in the jars. The tealights just look a little small.

I’m not thrilled about it as is, but I think once you’ve jazzed it up with twine/ribbon and the wood as was suggested, it would be fabulous!  It would pull the entire “pacakge” together quite nicely.  

Try it and post it for us to see!

I would keep the candles white. Remember that the candle in the blue jar will look a different color anyway.

my 2 cents – colored candles also don’t give off as much light as white or ivory candles. The blue glass is going to diffuse the light anyway so i’d go with white candles.

That’s a great starting point. Mostly all you need to do is add a few things and tweak it a little. Like adding the twine/ribbon, votives instead of tealights, and maybe using burlap as either a table cloth or runner. The burlap would really add a rustic feel, if that’s what your going for.

There was a great idea of wrapping twine around jars using double sided sticky tape in this month’s Bride magazine and I thought it was adorable. That’s the route I would go if I were you.

In my head, I can picture a wood slice tying it all together. For my wedding I am doing half my centerpieces with lanterns on a wood slice and then moss around the lantern with a couple of english rose heads or dahlias sprinkled around. So, I totally love the wood slice idea. I do not think it would be too much wood in a barn, but that’s just me.
