Jars make great vases and are relatively inexpensive. The beauty of this style of vase is that your flowers don’t need to be professionally put together to look good. Homemade flower arrangements with local flowers fit the theme much better.

  • To co-ordinate your jars with your theme tie a colored ribbon around the middle of the jar.
  • Add height to your centerpiece by grouping a few jars together and have taller flowers in one jar and then shorter in the other. This looks great on round tables.
  • If you are having long tables for your wedding guests, space your jars evenly along the table and make sure that the other table decorations and items to not crowd the jars and they get lost.
  • As well as flowers you can mix up the jars and just have leaves or branches.
