Today's thrift - Recycled Jars for Centerpieces and Decor - is inspired for my own personal search to cheap, chic centerpiece and decor options that were also all about reusing and recycling. My goal: hunt for as many glass jars as possible, didn't matter the size, the shape, the height. I even went so far as to buy glass jarred items at the store, force my husband to be to eat them and then carefully wash and store my precious finds. I had my family, friends, co-workers scouring their fridges, recycling bins, the pantries for jars, jars, and more jars...pickle jars, peanut butter jars, those round, fat jam jars, Mason jars. Fruit jars? We got 'em and Mr. deLovely will never eat fruit from a jar again. Our house was over flowing with jars but the visual is so worth it!
Here are some fab inspiration photos for you here on Thrifty Thursday where we encourage all things Thrift! Recycling and reusing is great practical wedding planning; going green for your wedding is good for your wallet and the world.
I can spot a peanut butter jar a mile away. This bride spent an entire year collecting one hundred jars!
Check out thrift stores and yard sales for old vases; they work just as well and can add a whole other layer of texture and dimension.
I love LOVE this next picture with all the old medicine bottles and slightly colored glass....ok I admit is, I am a bottle-aholic and the only reason I wrote this post was to look at beautiful glass legally.
Seriously one of my all time favorite uses of old recycled bottles - a modern retro Coca-Cola inspired wedding theme...BRILLIANT! Of course, I'm smitten with the blue and red color palette, which I chose for my wedding.

I think yellow billy balls are the cutest flower ever! They work so well in any wedding setting.
Last one - Enjoy your search, nothing is out of bounds on this Thrifty Thursday, think beyond what you see and into what can be...wow just made that up....super cool!
You may have to start your search early in order to gather enough...this is not a new concept but done right, it never goes out of style. Let the search begin!
