(Closed) Non-Floral Centerpieces, with Vases?

I once planned a corporate event that was loosely cowboy/ranch/Wild West themed.  For centerpieces on all the tables I used plain mason jars with 4-5 medium sunflowers in them. I also tied ribbon around the tops of some of them and then tied baler twine to some of them.

I love the look of candles in mason jars or vases, but I don’t know how well that fits with a middle of the day type event. Sunflowers look great in plain jars and vases, plus they’re super cheap (and you can buy them in bulk at Safeway, Raleys, Costco, so you don’t have to worry about a florist)! I think you could dress up the jars with a little fabric or ribbon, or just leave them plain.

If you’re really anti-floral, though, I saw pictures a while back of mason jars with pictures in them. The couple printed off pictures of themselves (or their family members maybe) in black and white and put those in the center of the jar like a picture frame. Maybe yours could be in color? Here’s a picture similar to what I am talking about:

I also did a quick search and found these three pictures. All of them have flowers, but so few flowers you could probably just buy them at a market.  I like the fruit one the best.  🙂

I love the paper flowers!  You could put white sand or paint the vases white to make the flowers "pop" and not have to worry about what the stems looked like.  Good Luck!

I am doing something like the first picture that Mrs. Spring posted except I am using fake flowers from hobby lobby. You can do them in advance and hot glue them to the bottom too if necessary and you can’t tell that the flowers aren’t real! Just be sure to use coupons when you buy the flowers!
