For this American Girl Party I had floral arrangements made for the tables using more “wild” type flowers and I used mason jars as the vases to put a fun twist on it.

I used mismatched china plates and silverware to give the tables a more eclectic, prairie feel. I did have to use paper napkins because my vintage looking handkerchiefs didn’t arrive in time (although I checked the mailbox right before I left for the party, just in case). And I had my calligrapher write up place cards in the same font as the invitation envelopes.

I used small cups and “salad” size plates, partially because the party was for younger girls, but also for a more miniature feel since it was a doll party.

  2. The table looks gorgeous, Brittany! The wildflowers add just the right touch ~~ the colors really pop against the white tablecloth (love it)!!!

  3. I was JUST thinking of using mason jars and flowers and then i saw your post. (I discovered the other week that Walmart sells mason jars for pretty cheap!) what a coincidence! They look really lovely.
