I love the color of the doilies, but perhaps you should only use one per vase?

I agree w/ VirginiaMarie. Just use the three doilies. Can you add something to the jars – Maybe a ribbon around them or some rocks in the bottom? Tea lights would look nice surrounding them!

how about something in the jars, to anchor the weight of the look some – and the flower, like pebbles or glass beads or coffee beans or sand?

or..  making some of the doilies pink and some orange and mix it up?

or..  some votives or tealights on the doilies next to the jars?

or..  some ribbons/bows/twine something decorative tied around the mouths of the jars?

that’s all i have for now…  will let you know if i think of anything else!

btw…  i love papel picado!  i’m totally enamoured with latino/mexicano culture.. it’s my major, too!  i’ve made cloth flags to hang as banners for our ceremony…  but if i were having a more ethnic and less rustic affair, i would totally use papel picado!  our cake topper is going to be a bride/groom katrina couple!

Agreed with using less doilies, but they look great! I think adding some of those clear stones or just something to the bottom of the jars would give it a little extra oomph. Are you going to have candles at all?

Here is a photo from my daughter’s wedding last summer.  If you use dahlias they will definitely give it a pop!  She used raffia from dollartree, but if you wanted to make things a little brighter, you might want to tie 1/4″ wide piece of orange or hot pink ribbon around the top of the jars?  Or you could use hot pink gel (beads?) in the bottom.

i’m having a campfire the night before the wedding and am stringing white lights around the yard..  i’m definitely considering getting papel picado to hang with the lights now!

have you found an inexpensive source for them online?  i’ve looked aroud a bit on google…  but don’t see anything that inexpensive.

=D

@[email protected]: so beautiful!! I’ve been toying with mason jars and dahlias as my centerpieces – this makes me very happy!

 

To the OP – the update looks stunning! what color of ribbon do you plan on using?

Love fewer doiles – and I think the ribbon will look beautiful. I am impressed that you DIY dyed your doilies! I would have turned out orange if I had tried something like that…these are beautiful!

@Pinot Noir:

Oh you are not far from me.  You WILL have to go to the Dahlia Farm!!!  I got seven dozen dahlias, my daughter picked out the variety of dahlias that she wanted, and it only cost $70.00!!!  PM me if you want more information!!! 😀 Rhonda
