Here are my ideas.  Let me know what you think of any of these!

  • I like the idea of pine cones.  You could maybe get some that are silver and gold to go with the brown ones or do the brown ones with little green accents of some sort to give it interest.
  • Another thought would be to get long peppermint sticks (straight as opposed to a cane so they won’t break when you fill the cylinder) to fill it with.  Or you could alternate two things (not sure what would be best) to create the red and white stripe pattern.
  • Fill the cylinder with lots of little Christmas bows (like you’d put on presents) in either a variety of colors or in your wedding colors only
  • I associate homemade apple cider with the holidays, so you could get the long cinnamon sticks used to make cider and fill the cylinder with those (bonus – it will smell really good!)

I love FutureKMM’s idea about candy canes!

Another thought – but not about the third cylinder.

Personally, I wouldn’t fill any of the cylinders with water (ie, don’t do the floating candle).  I think it would look nicer to just fill the cylinders with cranberries, ornaments, etc and them put a couple of little tea light candles around the base of the cylinders (kind of like the little candle in your cranberry picture).  Something about the water throws off the effect of the filled cylinders to me.  Just my opinion!

Bonus – you wouldn’t have to individually fill the ornaments anymore!

I think pine needles with pine cones and floating candles would look gorgeous and very holiday-esque without being in your face Christmas.  I like your other ones, they are beautiful as well!

I agree, pine needles & pine cones would be beautiful.  You could spray some white, leave some brown & collect tons of needles.  I think it would look beautiful with the cranberries.

I vote for baby bows (silver, gold and white?) or baby pine cones.

Sprigs of holly? If you have a bush in your yard, you could get them for free!

I also agree with FutureKMM about the water: leave it out!

I thought of one other thing that you could put in water (although I still think you should leave the water out – thanks for seconding me kirabee!) – you could get a variety of gold and silver bells.  Obviously they wouldn’t be making any sound but would still fit a Christmas theme without being in your face X-mas.
