I’m kicking myself for my centerpieces right now. I painted 60 pint mason jars tiffany blue then just realized it would have been better to paint the qt jars blue and put floating candles in the pint jar. (You’ll see what I mean below) I want to keep the centerpiece super cheap because I feel they are kinda pointless and I cant remember a single centerpiece from the 15+ weddings I’ve been to. i also don’t know which table number to use, the burlap with number or the tags around the jars. If I switch it up and put the flowers in the large jar, what do I do with the smaller blue jars? I was planning to put a floating candle in the large center jar. Or should I just try to sell all the jars I painted and paint the quart jars and put floating candles in the pint jars on the side?? Needs lots of honest opinions and advice!!
Option 1 – flowers in pint jars, burlap wrap and tag with floating candle in quart
Option 2 – tag on qt jar with floating candle
Option 3 – table number in burlap wrap with floating candle
Option 4 – flowers in quart jar, no idea for blue pints???
Option 5 – flowers in qt jar with number tag and floating candle

At the moment your centrepieces don’t have enough height variation. Could you use jars with different heights and the scatter some flowers and petals around the base of the arrangement to give it a bit more variation and width?
This is what we did with candles and petals,
it was cheap and came out well:
Obviously, this was before they were lit.

I agree with PP! I like the basic concept, but everything is very single-level…
I like the flowers in the blue jars, but I would I would elevate the table number jars, stick a different (taller) flower in those, and use tea light candles around the whole thing!

Thanks ladies! Fiance also just suggested putting tall colored flowers in the middle jar. We can’t have open flames so maybe votives would work?

You could try having something to sit a jar on to add a bit of height variation? We used books, I’ve attached a photo but dont know how well you can see it.. Love the concept though, very cute

@MrsN14: Agree with the pps. I like Option #1 the best, but your jars are just too close to the same height. Elevate the middle jar on a stack of books, a wood box, a block of 4×4 etc. You can use almost anything.
