Just looking for opinions.
Ive scoured local thrift shops, Salvation Army, Kijiji, and other used item websites and these are the tins I’ve come up with so far. I’ve also borrowed some from my Mom. My ‘vision’ for the centerpieces include a vintage tin (or two, depending on how big the tin is cause some of them are very small), a vintage pop bottle with a single flower in it (rose, likely), and then a mason jar. I’m on a tight budget so we are following instructions on how to make clear mason jars look antique with transparant glass paint!
The entire second shelf is now full of tins as I just bought a whole bunch of them off of some random man on Kijiji! Yay! I’m getting excited to see how everything is going to pan out!

Great work! Doesn’t it just make you smile when you see an ad for something you are looking for?

@julies1949:Yes! I’ve actually been quite surprised at how many people have answered my ads! So exciting! Im also lucky because my Mom is a bit of a collector so she has a lot of vintage looking things she may lend us for the wedding. =]
Thanks everyone! I’m super pumped about them. I just need to stop buying the dollar store out of all their fake flowers lol. I live in a little town (10 000 ppl) so thats the only place I can get decently priced fake flowers. And I keep buying them all! 😛
