Fortunately it's easy to make generic tables look good, chairs not so much, but we are talking tables. I didn't really know what I wanted for table coverings until I found it. And what I want are white linens and burlap runners. Mama Honey was having a very hard time envisioning this combination, and so I bombarded her email with loads of inspiration pictures to prove that it's the perfect touch of rustic, creating a pretty tablescape.

I'm confident in my choice of what will cover the tables, but what I'm struggling with is the centerpieces. I want something simple. I think I need to add a little splash of color; that last picture above really makes me smile. We aren't doing assigned seating so I can't go that route. Our floral budget is next to nothing so our centerpieces won't be focused around florals either. I absolutely love the look of these candle holders and matching candles:

Glitter covered jars. I'm dying over these! This is such a new discovery that Mama Honey doesn't even know such a purty picture is sitting in her inbox yet. I think I may have just figured out my perfect balance between rustic and whimsy: a few twine jars here and few glitter jars there, sitting on a runner of burlap with the soft glow of tea light candles. And I think this weekend will be perfect to test out my vision.
Have you had any "blogging is a superpower" moments? How are your centerpieces coming together? Anyone else like me and have the majority all figured out, just missing that one piece?
