I thought dark blue might make the white flowers pop. Although I like the look of the beads of water, the flowers look a little darker than I'd like. Perhaps with better lighting....
A crocheted doily for texture seemed to detract from, rather than accent the flowers.
Simple linen was the clear winner for me. The texture of the fabric both contrasts and echos the subtle lines in the flower petals. The simplicity allows the flowers and the color of the mason jar to shine.
This technique is very simple. Choose a jar, arrange your subject on the bottom, set your camera to macro, rest the camera on the rim of the jar and shoot! Full instructions are given at Gardening Gone Wild.
