My venue is going to have 20 black patio tables off to the side…and 6 60″ round white linen covered tables…and 6 white linen covered high boys flanking the fountain. I know I want to do mason jars with a raffata wrap on the black tables since I have 20 to decorate, but I want something a little nicer for the linen tables. I would also like the 60″ round tables to have different centerpieces than the high boys. Any ideas what would go with mason jars? I think galvanized “buckets” would look nice, but my mom doesn’t see my “vision”. I think putting regular glass vases on those tables would clash with the “rustic” mason jars.. help please 🙂

@April11bride: What is your overall feel for the wedding and do you have any colors picked?
If your going for a more rustic feel the first things that came to mind was terracotta pots. You could have them planted with some beautiful floral arrangements and then send them home with your guests. The terracotta would also tie in with the raffia from your jars. The galvanized bucket idea would look nice as well. Or what about milkglass? I think white milkglass mixed with mason jars would be a great mix of rustic and chic. However, I do agree that a regular “clear” glass vase would clash with your jars.

I think you had the right idea with the galvanized buckets + the mason jars. This photo (while its a tin can) kind of got me on board with that idea.
Another option is always mason jars with candles inside. Not sure if that fits into what you’re looking for, but I think its a really beautiful look too!

Mason jars are versatile, and you don’t necessarily have to go in a straight country-chic direction with them, though of course you certainly can. We had mason jars on our cocktail tables, and our centerpieces on the dinner tables were glass cylinders filled with moss and lichen, with dark brown manzanita adorned with a few orchids and dahlias, and hanging votives. Just play around with some different options until you find something you like. [attachment=1269623,161763]
