These simple glass canisters from wayfair are perfect for storing dry pastas or beans in the kitchen, however they inspired me to create these  seasonal centrepieces that are pretty enough for any dinner party – from Thanksgiving to even a fall wedding reception. I already have some ideas to transform this project for a winter look!

I love the fairy lights in this centrepiece, they look a bit like fireflies or fairies trapped in the canisters. This is also a much safer alternative to candles when it comes to lighting up your dinner table.

Arrange the vase filler, acorns and string lights in the smaller glass canister. I found it looked great when I looped some of the fairy lights within the round twig balls that came with the floral filler.

When ready to display, turn on the fairy lights and screw the lids on the canisters.

  1. These do have a rustic charm, but a modern feel with the jar you used. I love them, and would consider making them with some mason jars.

  2. Such a lovely idea. I must be honest – I thought the moss was broccoli at first. heh
    I’m sure they are absolutely beautiful with the house lights dimmed.

  3. These might be good nightlights for a kids room too! You could fill it with pretty well anything and weave the lights through.

  4. These centrepieces are really pretty. I never thought about using mini lights. It’s great that they can be changed out throughout the different seasons.
