Here are a few inspiration pictures I found. I really like the look of the lanterns with things in them

My theme was garden,  not vintagy, but have you considered a another kind of potted plant, like this?  Maybe those decorative hat boxes they sell at Marshals with a plant inside? Just throwing some ideas out there.

@Nola: I think the bride responsible for your inspiration pictures is selling those very same items in the Classifieds section of WeddingBee. I saw it on here a few days ago.

I also like the lantern idea with things other than candles inside of them (e.g. flowers, birds (fake ones), etc. Doilies definitely scream vintage for me and I was shopping around for them a few days ago. I can point you to the sellers I’ve contacted if you are interested.

You are getting married in New Orleans, right?  I’m using lanterns like the ones in the photos above for my wedding in New Orleans in December.  They have fake battery-operated candles in them, which actually look pretty good, and I will be able to put some flowers or berries or something in them too.  With some evergreen and little votives surrounding, I think they’ll be nice.  

If you’re interested in buying them after my wedding, let me know and I’ll send you photos of what I have.  They cost about $12 – 15 each (there are two different sizes), and I have about 12 of them.

like your original wheatgrass idea only using moss:

teapots re-purposed:

these vintage lady head vases are charming. They also make reproductions. Pictyre this with flowers or feathers:

vintage watering cans:

Gah! I have the EXACT same problem! We are also having a vintage themed wedding and the centerpieces are going to be the death of me!
