i need ideas for table decorations! I have loads of loose flowers but don't want to spend loads of money on vases that will be no use after the wedding... Have anyone just scattered the flowers on the tables? If so pictures?
if it fits the theme, tin cans work amazingly! They are so beautiful and look rustic, easy to decorate too (not my image, found on google)
Hi you could put the flowers loose on the table it is really your choice :)
Does anyone have pictures of loose flowers on tables? Don't know how it would look like...
Save glass jars, bottles and cans and spray them or decorate them. I'm getting married Aug 19 and already have quite a collection ready to decorate. Then will just recycle as normal afterwards.
Collect jam jars then buy some lace and hessian ribbon to decorate or other coloured ribbon depending on colour scheme.
Our venue supplied our vases as part of the package deal.
If they hadn't then I was thinking of scattering petals on the tables X
Home bargains have little milk bottles at about 59p each..they would look cute on the tables xx
Try charity shops for vases or holders, could probably pick up a vase for a pound. And then just redonate after the wedding
I'm just saving up my coffee jars and going to use them and decorate them to fit in with colour scheme
You could float flower heads in water filled whiskey tumblers. Looks ace.
You could join them all together to make a runner
Save coffee and other jars add a bit of lace, very cheap and looks great
Empty glass jars like jam jars that you'll have at home wrapped in hessian that's cheap as chips off ebay x
We had these scattered on our tables x
We are keeping wine and prosecco bottles, donated by friends and family as we dont drink much, spray painting them abd and putting flowers in them.
We asked family and friends to collect jars. We collected gin bottles too and each table was named after a different gin with flowers in! X
My friend bought 24 hurricane vases from ikea a few days before her engagement for her centrepieces then returned them 2 days after and they didnt say anything
I've used beer bottles, jam jars/sauce jars and old candles holders. Gone well with my rustic theme!
We just used old jam jars for our table flowers x
Jam jars? X
Jam jars are great to put flowers and candles in xx
We got small bottles of cake, pancake & cookie mixs for B&M £1 each... Eaten them & saved the bottles...
My mum drinks Douwe Egberts coffee and has saved loads of jars for us! They’re bigger than the standard jam jar and perfect for flowers. We will just recycle them after 🙂 x
Jam jars decorate them
Have you thought about checking out some charity shops?
They often have vases in, if it doesn't have to match you could always donate them again afterwards x
We are using glass jars that we've had from curry sauces and stuff. Just wash them and peel the label off once you've used the food. Hope this helps.
We used vases from IKEA at a £ each then let family and guests take them as a momento and they would get used again. z
Jars work perfectly we used a glue gun and put hessian and lace round our jars if you are going rustic
What about jam jars if you put an appeal on facebay for empty ones xx
Use glass food jars decorate with ribbon and use different sizes...then you can recycle them all after
Ask your friends and family to save old jam jars etc? I've seen a few bits online that look lovely, and you can just throw them away after! Good luck! X
Im going to be using empty glass bottles, jars or tins so will collect them between now and the big day and recycle them afterwards. Its free and a good use of stuff we would normally just throw away
You can use upturned wine glasses and candles .. xx

Whereabouts are you? I have 11 assorted clear glass vases for just £15
I’ve painted Pringle tubs and wrapped in lights. I’m not having fresh flowers though, I’ve made paper ones
Pound land sell fish bowls should pick up some of them and the jelly balls things in the colour ur wedding will be and pop flowera in on top of the balls and sit in middle of table
I got vases from IKEA for 50p each
I collected jars and small glass coke bottles and decorated them myself. Saved a lot of money, in the jars I had water with floating candles and flowers in the bottles x
you could look round charity shops for teacups and sauces and use them, look brill but depends on your theme x
Old books has centre pieces
Were using empty Gin bottles as vases, with handmade paper flowers, just means I need to drink lots of Gin 🤣 x
Jam jars work
Poundland sell plastic fish bowls
use tin cans, or jam jars wrapped in pieces of hessian or I have made macrame covers for white wine bottles and am using them as table number stands and flowers all in one
Make flower wreaths?
We used coffee jars, glitter, white and cream spray paints and some lace ribbon to spray over for the pattern and garden twine around the top, also look good with tea lights in
