First I picked up numbered spice jars at the Christmas Tree shop. These were a great find as they would serve as the base of each centerpiece and read as the table number too.

The tops of the porcelain cups were cork so I drilled a hole in the middle of each one. I purchased wooden dowels and die cut flower cork stickers at Michaels.

I drilled a hole in the middle the flower for the
dowel and placed the flower sticky side up underneath the lantern
serving as a base. Using hot glue I secured the dowel through the
lantern into the porcelain cup. To hold up the lantern I used wire
threaded in a triangle and attached it to dowel. I then glued moss
around the base of the cork and along the dowel to cover the wood.

Pretty Papers were purchased along with a butterfly punch at Paper Presentation and after cutting were applied to the lantern with glue dots.

The end result, a great alternative to flowers and perfect for a spring/summer soiree.
