We are having a vintage themed wedding and here are my centerpieces. Each table will have a mason jar, a tin with flowers in it and a bottle. Not sure if there will be anything in the bottles but I dont mind the look of them empty. I dont know what to put in them anyway. We tried putting flowers in the bottle but it looks like flower overload with the flowers from the tins.
What do you think?

I like the flowers and the container. I think the glass holding the candle is too tall and is not creating a good balance to the flowers. Maybe using a glass that is only as tall as the container holding your flowers will help your flowers stand out more. Right now they are competing for attention. You need the flowers to have a higher hierarchy. The other bottle looks too much like a beer bottle to me. I can’t see the detail so I’m just sharing what my first reaction was. You might have picked it for a personal reason. I’m not saying this to be mean, just my honest opinion. I think you have a good start though.

I love the flowers and the mason jar but I don’t care for the bottle. It looks like someone left their empty beer bottle in the middle of the table to me.

I like it but I agree with the PP about the mason jar being too tall. I love the idea–in fact, I’m using mason jar candles on my tables–but they are “competing” for attention. I would suggest using smaller jars and a couple more of them. One jar won’t be enough light around the table.

Thanks guys for the input. The tins are all different sizes and that’s one of the shorter ones in the photo so if I can find more vintage tins that are taller, I can use them.
And the bottle is actually a light green but you can’t tell in the photo lol. And all of the tables will have different coloured/sizes of bottles on them too since I’m using legit vintage bottles Ive found over the past few months and some my mom (a vintage collector) might let me borrow 🙂
Thanks everyone haha!! 🙂

I, too, love the tin with flowers and the mason jar. Not real sure about the bottles, since it kind of “overpowers” the rest of the centerpiece. Otherwise, great job!

If it were me, I’d make this two different types of centerpieces:
One would have the tin with the flowers and a smaller (like baby-food sized) jar or two with a candle inside.
The other would be the green bottle with different types of flowers (I’m thinking skinny flowers like lavender rather than wide flowers like hydrangeas) inside, flanked by two mismatched smaller jars with candles.
Putting all of your elements on a vintage or paper or felt doily also might help unify the elements. Martha Stewart makes a swell felt doily.

You could also bring in some old books and rasie the shorter tines up on a few books.
