The flowers are nice. I’m not a fan of the candles AND flowers in the mason jars. If the jars are a must, maybe just use some plain votives for the candles (there can never be too many candles) or place the flowers in something different.

I agree with the PP. I think the same size mason jars for both doesn’t look quite right. you should use smaller mason jars for the candles. Like the small jelly ones. I think that would add some visual interest.

I like where you’re starting from, but I’d work to make it a bit more personalized.  Right now it kinda looks like a generic resturant (though the mason jars don’t match the formality of the rest of the table).  It’s also a whole lot of white right now, I’d find a way to add some more color to the table, but overall I think I get the idea of what you’re going after and I think you have a good start.

the square looks so much better and the votives. I don’t like the first set ups at all. Honestly, it looks like my kid picked flowers in the garden and threw them in a glass.

Wens:  I think it is perfect for a courtyard wedding. You might want to consider adding a few tiny vases/bottles with a single bloom.

I agree with a pp about not using the mason jars for candles.

Yummmi Candles has a great sale on votives right now- 72 votives and holders for $20.

julies1949:  I don’t know if the helpful button works yet or not.  But thanks for the link to yummi candles.  The votive candle/holder sale is insane. 🙂 

Sorry, OP.  I forgot to include your original question.  I love the square vase too.  I think mason jars are overly popular and almost overdone at this point.

I like the square ones much better, too. They’re more lush and look fancier, I guess. It’ll be nice if they have some more pops of color as well, I think

sostobe:  You’re welcome.  Another Bee posted this in another thread just last night so I haven’t had enough time to forget it yet. 🙂

Wens:  I like it! This is sort of similar to what I did. I had painted and distressed quart sized mason jars with flowers and then one pint sized mason jar decorated with lace and pearls with a candle in it. At first I thought just having the two things for a centerpiece wouldn’t be enough, but I liked the asymmetrical look and when everyone’s glasses and plates and favors and whatnot were on the table, it looked great. I wish I had photos to show you but we haven’t gotten them back you!
