Our Love Affair with Mason Jars

Mason Jars. Oh how we heart thee!  

Mason jars come in a variety of sizes and colors, are relatively inexpensive and can be found at most grocery stores or online.  We have a major obsession with mason jars and their endless uses for parties.

  • We love using them as vases.  Place your favorite fresh-cut or store-bought flowers in them.  You could keep it as simple or add ribbon around the jar or fruit (such as lemons or cranberries) as a vase filler, to add an extra pop!
  • Use mason jars to organize party flatware for a party.  
  • Mason jars can be used for party favors:
    • Place dry ingredients in the jar with the recipe tied around it.
    • They are great for holding candy or trail mix.
  • Clear mason jars make beautiful drinking glasses when paired with a colorful drink or cocktail and a fun paper straw.
  • They can create a elegant party atmosphere when used as votives.  Place tea lights, or other small candle inside mason jars.  
  • Use them for your candy display or for different ice bar or hot chocolate bar toppings.
  • Mason jars are easy to spray paint and can serve as part of a centerpiece or decorative element to any type of event.
