The very first one is my favorite, to be honest.

I like the first one. The tea tin is cute, and as a tea lover I love a good tin myself 🙂 I LOVE your trays! I think with some pastel coloured flowers would give a good vintage feel. To be honest, I’m not sure I like the blue and milk glass mixed so I would probably put blue on one table, milk on the other, but that could be just because there are no flowers. 

I like the idea that every table will be different. I think you could do cameras on some tables and tins on others, depending on how many you have.

I like the idea of a runner or sheer overlay.  Gold would be nice as long as you have the doily to set the mirror off. You might see what a simple ribbon tied around the vase looks like once you add some flowers.Do you want to do vintage flower garden type (dalias, asters, daisies, cosmos delphinium) flowers or more traditional wedding flowers (roses, hydrangeas, peonys).  

I think your combinations look great so far

I would definitely not hire a florist for what you have going here. If you were doing tall, huge centerpieces, maybe, but I think what youre going for will be super easy to do yourself. I would use ranunculus and maybe white snapdragons or something to give it some height. Anemonies might also look neat. It’s hard to say without seeing the flowers in the arrangements, but if you ave a whole foods nearby, you can buy one or two of several stems and try it out for cheap.

You can have the cracked mirror replaced for only a few dollars.

I like the idea of mixing it up. All your options look good there, so you could do something different on each table. 

I also agree with @EffieTrinket that you don’t need to hire a florist. You have enough interest with all the items that you really only need a couple simple stems.

@whitecranberries:  I couldn’t answer how much florists charge for these, they are some of the more traditional garden flowers.  They’re often found in boquets from farmer’s markets.

I think the cobalt and milk glass mixed would look good once you have flowers in the vases.  I definitely like the idea of the ribbon, maybe just tie it around one of the vases.  I kinda like the burlap and it doesn’t seem to stick out as too rustic to me.  Personally I feel like the lace ribbon clashes with the doilies.

 

I keep imagining hydrangeas in those vases.  Something about that seems really classic and romantic to me.  And I definitely agree that the flowers are something you could do yourself.  Just a matter of placing a few stems in the vases.

 

And I LOVE the idea of miss matched centerpieces.

@whitecranberries:  You could go to markets. You could have them shipped to you by a company like proflowers. You could order them from Costco.
