Are you doing favors? If you place favors at each place setting it will look a bit less lonely.

I am planning to do the blue Ball jars as well, and I’m considering 4 oz Ball jelly jars filled with candy and tied up with ribbon or lace at each place setting.

I think it will look really pretty just the way you described with the burlap runner.

Oh you just aren’t looking in the right places for the milk glass. We’ve been “collecting” for about 4 months and have over 120 pieces (mostly vases, some pedestals).  Of course, you might be in the country like me, so we’ve enlisted help of friends and family. We make a point to stop at all Goodwills and Salvation Army, along with any other thrift stores or flea market type malls and garage sales, when we are out and about in other towns and cities. We’ve had fun collecting, and everyone else has seemed to enjoy helping us out as they bring in little sacks full of their milk glass “finds.” 🙂  Have fun!

I think you might be surprised how pretty it can look. Do you have a round or square kitchen table at home (or at a friends house) that you could use to do trial runs of how you will cluster them? That’s what I’ve been doing at home.

I plan to start doing some trail runs of the flowers themselves, since I can’t decide on my flowers vs candles ratio.

I’m doing something sort of similar for my centerpieces.We’re doing white linens, burlap overlays and then a cluster of two jars and one 7inch cylinder vase. I plan to wrap the middle of the cylinder vase with twine to give it more of an organic feel. I am thinking about stacking my vases on top of two books and wedging a couple limes in between the vases. I will post a pic later when I get back to my camera. My tables are round too. 

Have you thought about doing some votive candles around your centerpieces? That would help add a little more to the table.

I don’t know…I honestly don’t think they change though because it’s online and they’re basically wholesale. Walmart doesn’t change their bouquet prices around v-day. To me since it’s not a real florist and they’re a discount super center type place I can’t see why it would and if it did I can’t see it being a significant price difference.

Ohh..I love it! I’m doing Mason Jar centerpieces too.  I have a huge collection thats been passed down to me from my Grandmother.  I’m just trying to figure out if I want to use the jars alone, but seeing your pictures, I may do something similar. 

Can I ask what flowers you used in the pictures?  I’m trying to decide on flowers too, I see hydrangea, but are the others? Carnations?

Thanks!!
