My friend Lori just hosted a GORGEOUS high school graduation party for her daughter. It was 100% up my alley because it was very modern farmhouse. As you know I LOVE mason jars. I mean who doesn’t? If you are a southerner you use them for everything from a drinking glass to a vase! So when I saw this gorgeous inexpensive rustic centerpiece that Lori created for all of the tables at her daughters party I asked her if I could share the idea with you. I was thrilled that she said yes!
Her design is an affordable idea as you may have many of the items already at your house. I love that her idea showcased a variety of photos throughout her daughters life in the centerpiece. Her design was simply gorgeous and if you are looking for an inexpensive idea for a graduation party this would be a gorgeous design idea for sure!
Canning Jars (or really any jars will do)
Photos of the graduate
Favorite Flowers – love using wildflowers in this design
Print out a variety of your graduates photos and cut them into circles to fit the inside of the canning rings. You can attach with double stick tape. The canning rings make the perfect frame for the photos.
Next attach your “2018” die cut to the canning jars using some twine. Additionally you can add a piece of burlap to the canning jar if desired.
On the day of the party fill your canning jars with gorgeous flowers that you either grow or purchase. A great tip is to use wildflowers or pick up your flowers at Trader Joes. They sell bunches of flowers like this for around $3.99! It is well worth the trip if you have one in your area! If you are planning well in advance my advice would be to plant a wildflower garden to use. You can also reach out to your local florist and price purchasing in bulk to save money.
Finally, place a wide sheet of burlap on the table as a “runner” and assemble your design.
Special thanks to my friend Lori Zastrow for sharing her gorgeous rustic graduation table centerpiece design idea with us. She is so creative and loves her children so much. It is evident in all that she does for them and this party was a true labor of her love. I think it could be easily adapted for a baby shower, wedding shower, or wedding rehearsal dinner or wedding! The sky is the limit with this rustic table centerpiece.
