We’ve been hitting different thrift stores and flea markets etc in town and finding old looking bottles and bud vases, and even cup size decorative glass bowls for our centerpieces .   They have all been about $1 each or half that.   I plan on having three bottles/vases for flowers, then 2 short mason jars or bowls for nuts or mints, then 2 short for candles. 

We’ve gotten enough for about 10 tables so far. And even found about 4 or 5 large glass vases that are very pretty cut glass , and still less than $4 dollars! Those will be for maybe our table and the cake table.  

I started to use just mason jars ( Kerr, Bell… ) and the grocery store has a 12 pack of quart size for only about $8 .  But I like the mix of pretty cut vases and old bottles.

Ours will be kind of a country / vintage feel , outdoors.

Can’t find the pic right now…

I bought several at the thrift atore too!!  My only concern i that they may be too tall for the center of the table.
