(source)Mostly the wooden log vases, but I also love the plain glass jars. What fall flowers would look good in those? I'm thinking just greenery, and then do small bud vases with dahlias.
Let's brainstorm - how does one drill out part of a small log? Other than just using a really wide drill bit and a steady hand, smartass. Where does one who lives in the city get a small log? Most importantly, how do I convince my finace that he must have these vases and therefore should pile this project on top of all of the other construction projects I've given him*?
P.S. this wedding was beautiful but can we please stop saying things like "and we made homemade jam as favors for our friends" like it was just the easiest thing in the entire world? Because let me remind you of this scene from Little Women which would befall myself if I chose to make my own jam favors. "In the kitchen reigned confusion and despair. One edition of jelly was trickled from pot to pot, another lay upon the floor, and a third was burning gaily on the stove. Lotty, with Teutonic phlegm, was calmly eating bread and currant wine, for the jelly was still in a hopelessly liquid state, while Mrs. Brooke, with her apron over her head, sat sobbing dismally."
