Hey Bees! I’m looking for some “real wedding” photos of what you did for your reception tables. I’m on a strict budget and am all about DIY solutions (that don’t look tacky). I have decided upon mason jar vases and my colors are David’s Bridal sangria (think mulberry) and a light gray/silver. I keep seeing beautiful tables on Pinterest, but some of them seem way over-the-top and not something I can afford. So, let’s see your photos!!
Oh! And is it weird to not have a table runner or table overlay? I was sorta planning on just going with the standard white tablecloths and napkins provided by my venue, but maybe adding an overlay would be a good idea? I’m clueless.

It wasn’t for my wedding and I lost the photo I had of it but I went to a close friend’s wedding and the center pieces on each table were a rectangular vase with different layers of candy that matched their wedding colors and a couple of tea candles. The bottom was cotten candy, the middle was rock candy, I don’t remember what the top layer was, and they had lollipops sticking out the top.

@MaineBride30: Are you planning on using flowers in the mason jars? Or, did you want ideas for a non-floral centerpiece?
The easiest floral centerpieces to DIY are those where you use just one type of flower.
You can get mums, asters and dahlias in your color at that time of year.
This is a dahlia centerpiece
You do not need to have either an overlay or runners. This can be a place to save money.

@julies1949: I’m definitely planning on some kind of flower going into the mason jars. I LOVE the collection of flowers in your photo–simply stunning! Thank you. I forgot to mention that I’m also using some small, glass votive holders (totally reusing them from my 10-year class reunion, LOL) that look just like the ones in the photo, only they’re curved instead of straight.
