These are a great centerpiece and you can adjust the colors according to any celebration that you’re planning.

If you’re not a fan of black you could use another color for the background and they’d have a completely different look to them.
But that black with lace is just so graphic.
Chalkboard Mason Jars
These chalkboard mason jars are a great idea for weddings and parties, or for a centerpiece. The bonus is that you can erase the message and write a new one each time.
