I did a google search for papel picado, but I’m having trouble visualizing it.  Would you string them all up and then have them drape from the ceiling like crepe paper streamers?

Your idea of the big balloons reminds me of a fairly popular trend right now to hang Chinese paper lanterns from the ceiling.  Maybe the paper lanterns would match better with the papel picado?

The jars for centerpieces sound like a neat idea, and would definitely fit with the rustic setting.  If you’re bring in any form of electric lighting, I would skip the candle in one jar and just go for flowers in all three.  Having mismatched jars in all different sorts of styles and materials would be neat too I think.

I don’t think your decor is all over the place, but considering you have several different materials going on (rubber balloons, paper, wax candles, wood slices, and I’m assuming the jars are glass) it might be a good idea to cut one or two of the materials out of the mix.

Hope that helps, and happy decorating!

I completely agree with the last comment. There are NO rules. As long as everything can be tied together in some way, you are good to go. If you are going to do 3 vintage jars on the tables, I would do all different jars. And, especially if the jars don’t match, you should either put candles in all of them, or flowers in all of them. If you want to keep it simple but still have some fun with it, I think that is your best bet.

I think you still have a lot going on with so many different doilies and jars.  If you had one large jar with all the doilies or three jars with one doilie it would look a little more pulled together.  I think if you kept the large doilie and had the three jars on it that would look nice.  You could fill the skinny neck bottle with one or two large bloom flowers, the large mason jar with a candel, and the square jar you could put the table number in.  I love the color you dyed the doilies!
