Prettiness in a Jar

Let's face it, sometimes your wedding budget isn't going to be unlimited, you aren't the bride that walks into Kleinfelds and your family says give her whatever she wants a la Say Yes to The Dress.  This is alright, because with a little Diy elbow grease you can can turn simple items into gorgeous personalized decorations.  Today we are focusing on the mason jar.  It can be hung, filled with flowers, lit up with candles, painted, wrapped in lace, the list is endless!  Just to be clear this is a mason jar (they also come in blue and variety of sizes):

Now, the fun part!  How about hanging jars at your ceremony, or reception?  filled with flowers or candles, the look it original and pretty!  My favorite is the single floating blossom in the last image!




Another option is using them strictly as candle holders, I found a couple options one as a major statement chandelier and another table simply filled with them.  I am obsessed with the romantic glow candlelight gives a venue.


Lastly, the most common use would be as a vase, depending on the size your can fill them with a large variety of flowers or a single stem.  I'm loving the look of wrapping the jar in burlap and lace too.  A mixture of wildflowers really adds to the rustic look of the jars.  Don't be afraid to use different style of jars, check out your local thrift stores, they are usually brimming with vintage jars!






I hope your feeling inspired now!  which look would you want to use for your wedding? Candlelight, hanging jars,  or would you fill them with flowers?

  5. We worked on it's design and we nearly reached perfection with it.

    It is easy to download and use and you are able to create
    endless things and resources to your own account once you have
