Tea Tins as Centerpiece Containers
We love this cute idea for an outdoor, summery wedding. The bride collected antique tea tins to use as the centerpiece containers at their reception. Not only do they have that great vintage feel, but because none of them match, each centerpiece looks unique.
Try shopping at thrift stores and flea markets to get a similar look for your own wedding. But give yourself plenty of time; this bride's collection was built up over years. You could even search for themed tins, for instance, using only English tea tins or holiday-themed tins if you're having a winter wedding.
What do you think, would you use old tea tins to hold the centerpieces at your wedding?
