Hello fellow bees!
I need some advice/ help with my centerpieces. We are going for a Rustic Country feel for our wedding. I have gotten alot of hesitation from family members about the theme of the wedding so I prefer not to ask them. I am using mason jars as the centerpieces for our table centerpieces. My question is should I just have one Mason jar? Or should I half the quart size mason jars along with 2 littler ones or just one little one? The quart size mason jars will have fresh flowers in them and if we decide to do the smaller ones they will have water in them with floating votives.

I like the look of a couple of jars (say three?). Are you using candles on the table as well? That can change the look, too.
Try going to Pinterest or Google images and entering “mason jar” centerpieces for inspiration.
Also did you see the post from a couple of days ago on the mason jar deals another bee found?

Oh and I should have asked, do you have several round tables? Or a couple of long ones?

I am doing something similar. I have one large mason jar (will be on a log slice), one smaller mason jar with a floating candle and a bud vase. I also will have small votives around the table as well.
Here is one of my mock up pics
pic of current centerpiece mock up (larger one will be on log slice) and there will be a floating candle in smaller jar, and flower in bud vase.
I like being at weddings with round tables better, it is easier to coverse and sometimes in the rectangluar tables I have felt smushed in, but I have seen some awsome stuff lately with rectangle tables.

We are doing all round tables and rectangle tables are only for the food. I have tried to request an invite from Pininterest but I havent been given the privilage of getting a password to get access it. I didnt see the post for the other mason jars. Do you remember what it was under?

Love your idea!
A Few Hints from a Pro:
-try to keep things in odd numbers–threes, fives, sevens, etc
-stagger the heights so #1 is tallest, #2 medium, #3 shorter, etc
-if you use multiple colors of glassware (aren’t blue mason jars pretty?), make sure you do no more than 1/2 of each color
-mix candles and flowers=> candles are generally cheaper than flowers and they add pretty sparkle with the glassware (do any image search and you will probably find some gorgeous examples with NO flowers at all!)
-consider placing photographs (black and white or sepia look best) in a few of the jars at each table and backlighting them with an LED candle)–gorgeous!
-if possible, use wood circles or other sturdy pieces to elevate some pieces, emphasizing the staggered heights
-toss a few blossoms and (if roses) petals around the base of the arrangement, trying to be as haphazzard as possible
-if the budget allows, add in a metallic element like a silver frame to use as a table number
-burlap is a trendy and cute element to add in as a table throw (a square table cloth that drapes just a bit over the edges of your round table) or a runner, but lace also looks gorgeous and even satin will look nice (I’ve yet to see feedsack/grainsack but that would be really pretty, too)
Good luck and have fun!
