I love the runners! I bet blue/teal ball jars with some hydrangeas or something would look really pretty! And candles are a nice way to add a ton of ambiance on a low budget. 🙂

I love the runners, the mixture of the patterns is beautiful. I think the centerpiece flowers could be shorter, they look to tall for a short vase. I’m doing a vintage/romantic/shabby chic look as well. I have lace accents, black and white pics of me and my fiance from various places we’ve been, mismatched silverware and lace wrapped votives to place on the tables. Ive mostly bought things from thrift stores and collecting anything that fits the style of the wedding.

I hope I’ve helped and if you want you can PM me and I’ll give you any ideas since were doing simuliar styles. Good luck.

Could you maybe make a larger bouquet with baby’s breath?

I agree with creativeplannertobee about the baby’s breath, it’s a wonderfully inexpensive filler flower and very shabby chic!  I’d suggest searching thrift stores for odds and ends you can incorporate into your  decor – tablecloths or flat sheets in florals, maybe some floral dishes, and things that appeal to you in the way of candleholders or frames shape wise that you could later paint an antique white or other complimentary color to your design scheme 🙂

I second the babys breath and I think that a few milk glass vases in different sizes would look awesome. With maybe a few stems of flowes in each one! Very rustic/chic! Maybe a few mason jars mixed in! And i LOVE the vintage runners!!

I love this idea:

Wedding Jar Fairies! Shabby Chic Version!

and I think something similar would look great against the floral.

I believe thoe yellow flowers on the first page to the right are rananculus (sp?) I plan on using them in pale pink and white for my wedding. They are so pretty.I know it sounds super simple but just adding candles would chance the complete look of the table. And Mason jars!! This site is affordable for jars and things.

I used quilted canning jars (4 oz and 8 oz) and put a tealight in each and put three or so of those on each table with milk glass bud vases, they looked great.  I also used 16 oz mason jars for drinking glasses, with tags on them with each person’s name, everyone loved them.  If you want photos, PM me your e-mail and I will send them to you.
