~wedding decor prep day - photo collage~

We (Colleen, Katrina, Jill, Carla and moi) spent Saturday staining jars for the wedding.

The larger jars will be filled with sand, seashells, and tealight candles. Handles are being added and adorned with pearls, ribbon and sinamay. These will hang on chairs lining the aisle. We will alternate a stained jar, then a clear jar.

The smaller jars are being used in different ways. Some will hold sand and candles and be placed in a circle to define a casual dance floor. Others of these are part of the centerpieces for the tables at the reception. We are gluing seed seashells around the rim and they will hold a candle as well.

I'm having so much fun with this! Especially being with my sisters and nieces!
