I love it. I don’t know if it’s “shabby chic,” but I could see some moss interwined on some of the blank spaces between the jars, kind of sprinked in between. Just a suggestion to add a little color.

I think it’s pretty but needs a little more, I’d add a few paper flowers at the base of the jars maybe?

I would make the runner thinner. Also, are the doilies paper? How will you dye them? (just curious!) Also, how long is your reception, and will the tealights burn the whole time? (I would time a tealight — it would be sad if they all ran out with a few hours left in the reception!) I would also make the doilies and vases more randomly spaced. IMO they are look too carefully arranged.

Also, maybe try clustering them all in a tight rectangle in the middle of the table? Just thinking of other ways that it could look!

It’s a good start! I just feel like it is missing something. Maybe some rose petals, or something with a bit of colour?

I think it looks really pretty! I also thinks it needs some color, though. What are your wedding colors? You could also dye the doilies to match the colors your using. Just a thought. I think these are pretty!

i would try and intersperse the candles in jars with greenery in jars. that way it’ll be a little more lush, with some nice green as well. otherwise i think it’s great! greenery also comes in many different shades, and is very inexpensive.

I vote for some white rose petals! Normally I’m not a fan, but I think they would look really pretty here.

Yeah, some baby’s breath with work. I wonder if you can wind it to look like a vine? and then weave it around the jars? Just an idea. might not work. but if it could, then the baby’s breath would kind of look like flowers on a vine. Maybe add a small ribbon every few inches in your bridesmaid dress color or in ivory for some flare. I don’t know. I’ll be making choices like this on my DIYs soon, and I have ZERO ideas of what to do for myself. But you definitely have a great start.

Or you can put some of that hay looking twine around the opening of the jars, and tie it in a bow. That might be cute, too.

I love it. If you want a cheap way to jazz it up a little, you could try wrapping some of them in twine or ribbon like this picture. But I think it looks nice just like that too.

Oh, have you seen those jars where they put the doodlie thing inside the jars?

If you did this with paper ones, you might have to cut the centers out. Or fold them like paper snow flakes and make more holes in the center.

I’d do for bb, as you say, or I like dried flowers, dried grass, or dried hay.

That’s butcher block paper? That’s a good idea!
