tiny jar inspiration

What can I say, we are inspired by tiny jars of single flower blooms, all lined up in a single row. So pretty, so simple...looking. But, one thing it's important to realize before you decide to do it yourself: Coming from an event designer's perspective, achieving this look is not actually so simple and not as inexpensive as it looks! There is a lot of work that goes into making things looks simple, clean and adorable. Careful consideration has to go into choosing the right vases, the right sizes of the different vases, the spacing, the height of the cut flowers, the colours of the flowers and the colour of the decor on the tables to give it some punch, but not too much of an overbearing punch at the same time. And alot of the time, you'll also need to purchase a strong flower that makes the right statement, one that can stand alone in it's beauty - normally more expensive than just any old carnation or rose! Phew, that's a lot of work for something so pretty and simple...
