love!!! looks great!!

EDIT: I think with the wood underneath and the pillar candles, it’ll be good enough, but I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to the centerpieces.  less is more!

I think they look really good. I’m going to favorite this post because I’m planning on using mason jars as well and can use some pointers 🙂

I almost worry that painting them blue would be too much with such a vibrant runner. I love how the pink, orange, green, yellow and aqua all mesh without being too matchy, and I think your trial flowers are super cute! It’s going to look great!

I agree with a PP that making the jars blue would be too much. They are looking great the way they are.

@JamaicaBride: I like the bold colors, but I always opt for less work! You could maybe try a little bit of teal/aqua vase filler in the bottom to catch the light similar to how the blue glass would.

I think they will look great. I would not use the metal rings on the jars.

You can always try painting one jar or even just dye some water blue to see what it would look like with a blue vase.

Are the ribbons the colors of your wedding? If so, rather than use the ribbons, I might try cord or even just twine to let the colors of the flowers shine through.

@JamaicaBride: If you decide you do want a pop of color for the jars and don’t want to dye them, I saw a picture where they tied yarn around the jars, like most of the way up and then just did a simple bow in the middle. It’s very similar in looks to what @julies1949: had in the picture she showed, but with colored yarn instead. I’ll try and find the picture tomorrow for you.

I too think it would look better without the lids on… I’m also not sure that I would paint them blue but then then again I didn’t follow the traditional route with mine either. We did two different types, sorry pics are so big..
