I was wondering if any of you could help me out. My FSIL is studying floral design and is taking care of our centerpieces and bouquets. I want to give her some ideas of what I like, but I’m having a bit of trouble. I’ve found beautiful examples, but they all involve mason jars or other glass. Our venue has a strict rule against all glass. I hope some of you have some ideas.

You could try wooden crates, wire crates, or woven bowls/ baskets made of a natural material (like seagrass). A friend of mine who had a a similar problem with her venue ended up making beautiful candle holders by hollowing out hunks of birch tree. Those were beautiful, and definitely rustic looking! I also think of terra cotta pots as somewhat rustic. You could use plain ones, or you could paint them and decorate them with twine or ribbon. Home Depot also has small metal buckets- intended for paint, I think- that might work well!

A friend has a flower shop and she has plastic center, moss type planter/buckets.
She also has plastic center, burlap planter/buckets.
What about the assorted teapots idea?
There are probably also some cute plastic containers out there – maybe scout out your dollar stores?

What about ceramic pieces? If you live near a university I would contact their art department/ceramics professor and ask if any of the students would like to sell some of their work or if they are having any art sales?
