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)

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

Try charity shops for vases or holders, could probably pick up a vase for a pound. And then just redonate after the wedding

You could float flower heads in water filled whiskey tumblers. Looks ace.

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

I've used beer bottles, jam jars/sauce jars and old candles holders. Gone well with my rustic theme!

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

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

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

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
