We love the look of these vases, especially when combined with candlelight and know there are so many other ways to decorate with them in new and unique ways. We’ve gathered up some inspirational images below…hope you see something you love!

Consider adding fruit and flowers that match your wedding colors as filler in a large-diameter vase. You can play with so much with texture and style here!

Mix-and-match your cylinder vase with other containers to add dimension and interest to your tables. I love, love, love the use of different materials here, from the twigs, logs and twine to give a rustic vibe– who wants to guess what the rest of this wedding looked like (I bet it was gorgeous!)
