If you’re creating your wedding or other special event table decorations on a budget but want to be on trend, don’t fear! Here’s my gallery of ideas you can make at home pretty easily. And you’ll create maximum effect using a household essential – jam jars.
Ruffles are very on trend for 2017 – as is blush shades such as peach.
Use the blush trend in lace and team with tea cups with matching flower details for the perfect afternoon tea set-up
Lace and ribbons in pink combine elegantly with matching roses and gypsophila – with a hint of lilac for variation
The lilac lace is my favourite!
With a simple table runner it’s easy to see how you can randomly place the jam jars of flowers and tea lights along the centre of your table
I’m such a fan of giant buttons! I threaded elastic through them and attached them around the neck of the jam jars – they look good around the centre of the jar too
Combining the funky buttons with bright pink gerberas and crysanthemums add a fabulous colour ‘pop’ – another 2017 trend to watch out for
Calligraphy is also a big trend for 2017 – these lovely tags double up as place settings and a keepsake favour to take home afterwards
Back on the greenery trend I tied a fab green ribbon to the neck of this jar. The jar has been sprayed with glue inside and glitter has been swirled around to stick to the insides – no sticky fingers for handling this one!
These cute pom poms dangling from the neck of the jam jars are a little bit different – and very tactile
I’m not short of buttons in my stash and it was a simple task to thread them on to ribbon. I like how they’re in the middle of the jar too
I’m very happy in my work – well who wouldn’t be?!
