I am using mason jars as my center pieces for my wedding reception, my question is I am thinking of just putting a few roses in each jar. I don’t want it to be a full arrangement, just something simple and classy. I am going to have a mirror with glass votives around the mirror, and the mason jars will sit on the mirror. I thought just using a 5-7 roses in the just would keep it simple but pretty. Tell me what you think. I have looked around on here at all the other different post about mason jar center pieces, and got a lot of good information! Please help me to decide on this though, I want to know what would look the best. If not roses I want to use gerbera daisies.

I too am using mason jars and I agree that less is more when it comes to filling them with flowers. I think they are meant to be understated. As far as which type of flower to use, which flower better represents the feel of your wedding? IMO: when I think of roses I automatically think more formal/traditional and picture daisies in a more casual setting. Personally I prefer daisies in a mason jar…sooo pretty!! Although I’ve never seen roses in one, I’m sure that would be pretty too. Aren’t mason jars fantastic! Are going to use any kind of ribbon around the jar?

@bellakitty: Well I don’t know which flower I am going to be using. I am so indecisive! Lol! I found a lily flower today which had a little hint of pink in it, that I love so I may be using those! Who knows.. No I am not planning on doing any ribbon because I just want it to be simple and not overdo and take away from the jars! I absolutely love the mason jars! Didn’t like it at first when my mom mentioned it, but then loved the idea!

You could try peonies. You’d only need two – three blooms per jar. And they are bee-utiful!

I used the aqua colored mason jars and had one purple hydrangea stem in each. I also had a brown birdhouse next to the jars. I think it looked really pretty. I’d attach a picture, but my photog locked them where I can’t share. 🙁

I did fake gerbera daisies in some and I did a non-flower option in the others.. Since we were setting up ourselves and had little access to water I did layered sand in mine too.. Can’t find the picture of my pinwheel centerpieces on my computer but you can see it here http://kristenwynnphotography.blogspot.com/2010/07/lynn-and-chris-married.html and my flowers are below…

I am using mason jars with candles in them in my reception decor as well as hanging mason jars with wildflower arraignments for aisle decorations, so I am a big fan of that look. However, when I think of mason jars I think of a more casual look, while roses to me seem very elegant. So I would either go for the daisies, or maybe look for garden roses. Garden roses could look really nice, or hydrangeas, or really any other casual flower…

Our florist did ours pretty full and I really liked how they looked, but I think the great thing about mason jars is they look good with pretty much anything!
