DIY your mason jar centerpieces for your wedding
Mason Jar Centerpieces with Flowers
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.
