I’m doing long tables with mason jars as well.  I googled around to see if there were any local farms that grew flowers and I found one! 20 mins from my venue, there is a farm that sells cut flowers and berries, so I am basically going to see what flowers I can get from her in my color scheme– it is making it MUCH more affordable.

Otherwise, you can look at baby’s breath which is really “in” right now…

You could also think about having some potted plants.  My neighbor has a ton of mini terracotta pots she doesn’t want, so I am thinking of painting them white (or maybe a crackly gold and white) and planted herbs or other pretty plants in them.

Also, if you’re going with the jar theme, you could collect some baby food jars and use them for candles and/or single blooms.  Then you can stagger whether big jars or little jars have either candles or flowers. 

Good luck!

@nessa9116:  I’m getting married at a historical village, but they have been surprisingly okay with candles.  I thought that ‘covered’ flame would mean that I needed a screen or something, but it just means that the candle has to be smaller than the container. 

As for needing something other than flowers on the table, I am going to put the wine on the tables like this:

Also, you could use Christmas lights that are strung down the center of the table.  I haven’t seen anything like this, but here’s some inspiration:

(tissue paper lights)

If you use a floral runner, or any other print, the table already looks fuller, very little else needed.

Adding vases of greens is very inexpensive- maybe friends and family will let you trim their trees or bushes.

We arent allowed to have candle either and it’s hard to decide what to add to the tables while still keeping it simple. So, were doing petals. For the long tables were going to scatter the petals like a runner.

@nessa9116:  Just a random thought but if you wanted to do the bottles on the table thing could you do something with sparkling water like Perrier or something like that? I’m was just thinking that some of the nicer restaurants I’ve been to have served just regular water in bottles on the table.

@nessa9116:  This is from the Young House Love blog:

The used a colored runner, fuit (limes and lemons) and its not in this picture (just google Young House Love wedding), but they went to vineyards and collected old wine bottles (supposedly some places just give them away).  Then the got the labels off and filled them with lemonade and water and wrote on the bottles to label them.  It made serving drinks easy and pretty!

We had long tables as well.  We did table runners, and instead of a “main” centerpiece we had different things running down the tables.
