Centerpieces provided by the 1812 Hitching Post can be made up entirely of things we own or can be a combination between what we own and what you bring or have provided by a florist. We have mirrors and wood slabs, lanterns, mason jars, milk jars vases, boxes, signs, candle holders, bottles, and more to decorate your tables. We also have either gold and silver charges and gold, silver, andd clear votive candles or tea-light candles.
Below are galleries of some of the items we own used in various ways. We encourage you to use your creativity or let us help come up with ideas for your wedding!
Curved Glass vases
These vases are all 8 inches tall. The largest has a width at the top of 6 1/2 inches. The medium vase has a width of 4 1/2 inches. The small version has a width of 2 inches at the top. These vases are typically used separately. The largest one on a mirror with floating candles and silk flowers is a popular option. The smaller version is frequently used as a single flower vase and the medium size works well if you’d like a vase with a ribbon or twine around the middle.
Cylinder Glass vases for tabletops
We have seven sizes of cylinder vases.
Four of our vases are 5? across. The two tallest vases are 24? and 15 1/2? inches tall. These are most often used on the aisle or as buffet/bar table decor with candles in them. We also have a 8? by 5? vase and a 5? x 5? vase. We have a trio of cylinders that are often used for tabletop decorations. We have a vase that is 9 1/2 inches tall by 3 inches across; a vase 8? tall and 3? across; and a vase 7 1/2 inches tall and 3 1/2 inches across.
Square Glass vases
We have four sizes of square vases.
For our “trio” of vases, the tallest vase is 14 1/2 ” tall by 3 ” across; the middle vase is 10″ x 3 1/4″ and the shortest square vases is 4″ x 3 1/4″. We also have a slightly larger “short” square vase for when you want to use a square alone. That vase is 5″ x 4 1/2″.
We have all sizes of mason jars in clear and blue. Mason jars can be painted and wrapped and can be combined with live flowers, silk flowers, dried flowers, or candles to create centerpieces. Below are some sample ideas.
Boxes, Birdcages, and Lanterns
We have some dark wood boxes that look lovely with live flowers and some natural slatted boxes as well as some random vintage boxes. We also have ivory birdcages, black lanterns, and white lanterns. We can help you create a look you love!
