Non-Floral Centerpieces: Apothecary Jars

We love the whimsy and old-fashioned look of apothecary jars. A very Anthropology-esque design that allows the designer and bride to open the creative flood gates and really create one-of-a-kind pieces. These particular photos are from a wedding we did at the Sanctuary Golf Course with Katie Van Buren as the photographer. This bride wanted a very organic feel and each individual jar’s design was significant to the couple.
