tea tin centerpieces

teatins
When I saw these tea tins posted on Decor 8 (one of my favorite bloggers), I immediately thought of a post I'd seen on Oh Joy! (another favorite!) about a year and a half ago of a Martha Stewart photo spread, in which several tea tins were used to create a homegrown looking flower arrangement. Until I read Holly's post, I had not known that these tins could be purchased for so little (most under $3), I thought they had to be collected or purchased at antiques stores. Turns out, they're readily available online at Pearl River, and we can all have them for a bargain. I love it when that happens! Centerpieces? I think I smell centerpieces.

YAY! I'm so glad to hear that these are available to buy :) I, too, thought that hours of antique shopping were the only way to get my hands on these fun tins. Thanks, Mackenzie!!!!

I am so excited at this great find! One question before I place my order for an onslaught of the Pearl River tins – are they tall enough? They look maybe 5" or so. Is this tall enough to place some good blooms in, as in the Martha photo? Any height variety with these?

What a great resource--thanks for the tip on where to find the tins! Shopping at places like World Market and ethnic grocery stores just got a new twist.

Hi, can you tell me how big these tins are? I'm doing something similar for my wedding, except i'm putting plants in the tins instead of cut flowers, and i'm wondering if these would be big enough. They are so pretty, though!
