You don’t even have to put anything if you don’t want. The tin looks fine on its own.

You can try to grow grass in it or put already grown grass. I think it’ll look nice.

Is your sister ok with a few tins “missing” ? Some guests think that they can take anything home and so the tins might walk out the door with them.

Grass, tall pillar candles, and manzanita branches would all look nice.

You could also go the fabric or crepe paper route for flowers to make it more interesting.

Those are beautiful tins!!

Ooohhh those are pretty!  Personally, I would put stalks of wheat in them, or grow some herbs.

Flowers would be cute and so would succulents or herbs.

With a January wedding, what about holly sprigs?  I also think dried herbs go great in tea tins, and I think bear grass would look great as well.

I agree with the first poster that some centerpieces tend to walk at the end of the night.  Just had that happen at a wedding I was at.  I love the wildflower look that Martha Stewart did.  The bright colors of the tins remind me of cotton candy, loliipops and rock candy.

I love that your sister has been collecting tea tins! I just found this image the otherday online and fell in love.

Unfortunately I don’t have access to the number of tea tins necessary to create this amazing-unique-chic look. If your sister would let you turn the tins into lanterns like these I think it’d be a big hit!

Even if you chose not to make hanging lanterns, maybe using small votives on the table as a centerpiece with a doile underneath? I don’t know — just a thought.

I’d love to know what you end up doing, so please keep us updated!
