Mason Jars… Not Just For Canning Tomatoes.
Don’t you love it when you can take something so simple and inexpensive and turn it into something so sublime and elegant? You know, like when the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella turned an ordinary pumpkin into that extraordinary horse carriage. Yeah, it’s pretty great when these things happen and we agree.
Luckily for us, and you, our blog today focuses on just that. Except instead of transforming pumpkins, we are going to transform Mason jars. Seriously? Who would have thought, right? Believe it or not the Mason jar has turned into a major force to be reckoned with in the world of weddings, especially as more and more brides are choosing “vintage” as their wedding theme. Fortunately, Mason jars seem to have just the perfect touch of creating that rustic feel.
Why use the Mason jar? It’s simple: The beauty of the Mason jar is that not only is it elegantly simplistic and inexpensive, but it is incredibly versatile. They can be used for literally everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, from lighting to décor to drinking glasses. Don’t believe me, see for yourself:
First up on our list, Mason Jars as drinking glasses
Spice up your beverage display by using mason jars as drink ware. Paired with a striped straw or strung with a little twill, these glasses will be a huge hit at your wedding!
Mason Jars as Lighting and Décor
From candleholders to table numbers, mason jars are the perfect way to dress up your wedding décor.
Another one of my favorites is using Mason Jars as Favors
The great thing about Mason jars is they can be filled with absolutely anything. From candies to jams and everything in between.
One of my favorites is pre-filling the jars with baking ingredients for your favorite dessert recipe. From cookies to cakes, just throw in your recipe mix (in pretty layers), and attach baking instructions for all your guests to take home and enjoy.
Last up on our list, Mason Jars as Centerpieces
There really are no words to describe just how creative and breathtaking these can be. I’ll just have to let you see for youself.
The world of weddings just cannot get enough of these useful and beautiful, rustic little jars of love. But after seeing and reading all of that, let’s be honest… who can blame them?
