ClaudiaKishi:  You could also put battery operated tea lights in them -Not lit candles though!!  What about using some for passing/serving your appetizers?

ClaudiaKishi:  Those glasses actually look like hurricane glass candle holders.  You could very easily just use them as that.

You can easily use those as vases, too.  The one cloche you can use as a cloche just like your inspiration picture!

Also, since you have so many teacups, here are some other nifty things to do with them…

Also.. wow you’re REALLY DIY.  Growing it yourself is impressive!  

Also, also… growing succulents is super easy IF you have the sun to do it.  They propagate really easily.. you need a couple months to go from a leaf to a decently sized plant.  They grow like crazy in California.. in Atlantic Canada I’d assume you’d want to only grow them outdoors for the summer months.

My friend made tiered treat stands out of mismatched porcelain plates for her wedding, similar to the ones previously posted. She said they were super easy to make and they looked so pretty! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

You could use the glassware for tealight holders. I would etch the glass so the tealight is not so visible.

Your collection looks like mine did.  I had a huge dessert bar- small cakes, cupcakes, cakepops, cookies tied with ribbon, candies, chocolates, macaron, you get the idea. It was the most beautiful table.  I put together all the cake tiers. Just glued plates to vases, candlesticks, wine glasses etc. My guests thought it was amazing! All your other Ceramics can be utilized in a lot of different places-

Beautiful venue! I noticed all the moss in your inspiration pics and you could go buy a giant bag of moss from a florist. Just order it ahead of time, it’s actually pretty cheap. You can use pieces of it to decorate with (as an accent). My sister did this and it was really easy and looked great!

ClaudiaKishi:  Yeah I remember it was something like $15 for a giiiiaaant bag of moss, so you could even get 2 and go nuts with it. haha

ClaudiaKishi:  First of all, your mom is awesome. She’s done such a great job. And I love your theme and your venue, makes me wanna change mine now, haha.

If you think you have way too much for the decor, what I would do is set all the teacups on a table by the entrance or the seating plan and allow each guest to choose one that they could use during the evening and keep as a favor afterwards.

The rest I would just turn into candles and vases for flowers, succulents, etc.
