    I don’t know what it is but I’m really loving option 2!

    I love option 2! The lemon and limes don’t look bad to me, I think the layering/separation is nice and a great visual element. Very cute!

    Not a fan of the cut lemons/limes.  Have you tried whole fruits instead?  The cut ones look like someone plunked flowers in the water pitcher.

    I love the beautiful simplicity of the hydrangeas in the mason jar. Instead of adding ribbon or using lemons or limes, I would make some or all of the book covers using maps. Many maps have a lot of yellow.

    I voted for the ribbon, but i really like the lemons/lime ones too!  Would it it be possible to mix and match both across the tables?

    I love the idea of lemons, but I would probably add some more…I don’t like how they look floating.

    Like this: 

     

    And you could always alternate the lemons and ribbons.

    @hopefloats:  that would be a good way too, to incorporate the limes and lemons so they mix

    Instead of ribbon you could use a small diameter of sisal rope…

     

    or baling twine…thats what its called – the string that holds bales together πŸ˜‰ 

    Anyhow, baling twine comes in a bunch of colors like green, yellow,  natural, blue etc. πŸ™‚ and you can buy a roll at tractor supply or get to know a farmer/rancher so you dont have to spend 50 bucks on a 9000′ roll  πŸ™‚

    I like the lemons too, but like mrschetos said, more of them and along the inside of the vase.

    You probably don’t even need much water, they only have to last for a couple hours.

    RE:  the pics of the jars FULL of lemons.  I bet they stuck something in the jar, and put the lemon slices in between the two.  For example, a smaller jar, or even a piece of PVC pipe.  Then you don’t have to buy as many lemons and the lemons won’t float around.

    @hopefloats:  Ooh I voted for the lemons but I LOVE the photo you posted even more! So vibrant! This is a real statement maker, IMO.

    I think the added fruit will give it a sweet fragrance and added bonus of something extra pretty to look at that guests will appreciate! πŸ™‚
