Salt Shaker Centerpieces

Idea courtesy of Apartment Therapy

Ooh. I adore these simple centerpieces made from salt-shakers. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways:
  1. Potentially very inexpensive if purchased from thrift stores.
  2. Nice and low to the table so they don't prevent guests from conversing across the table.
  3. Require only a few snippets of flowers (or even free foliage snipped from accommodating plants).

I saw this cute idea on TheKnot - they suggested it for a shower or rehearsaldinner, obviously it didn't occur them that someone would use such a low-key beautiful idea for the wedding itself. I find it very pretty - although: what will I do with all those shakers afterwards? ;-)

@evi: donate them back? or resell them on ebay or etsy, or a like-minded bridal site? i can't seem to find it now, but i think sara posted a link to a new website for this purpose. or even keep the more interesting ones. :)

this is a cute idea. i never would've thought of it. unfortunately, they can't be incorporated into my theme... :(

I did this for my wedding (after being inspired by this post), which was a casual, autumn farm affair and it turned out beautifully!

Oh and we just clipped rosemary and other foliage from around our garden and leftover flowers!

It was so easy -- a restaurant supply store near by that sold them $12/12 and I've loaned them out FOUR other times (all to brides who were either at my wedding or saw photos).

It was so simple but created a beautiful look -- I'd highly recommend it!
