Mason jars have become very popular in the wedding and party scene. We find that mason jars can be used in several aspects of your party or reception. Most often, these jars are used as means of décor. Small centerpieces can be made with a mason jar vase, or stick a few flowers in each jar to add some extra floral flair to the tables. An even easier task is to put pictures inside the Mason jar, it looks especially elegant with black and white photos!
Using the jars as lighting is a unique trick, and there are many ways to do this! You can insert a bulb into the lid of the jars and hang them; this is great for outdoor weddings! Also, try placing the jars around the table with candles in them, and try adding water for the floating candle effect. String up the jars with tiny bulbs, such as Christmas lights, for distinctive hanging décor that adds some dim lighting! A neat idea for a kid’s party is to break open a glow stick and shake it inside the jar to create a colorful, glow-in-the-dark lantern!
You can also use this in aspects that do not involve décor. Send guests home with favors inside Mason jars, such as individual cakes from the same recipe as your wedding cake. Use the jars at the kid’s candy station for them to fill up on goodies! You can also serve cool summer drinks in the jar, which looks great with a bright signature drink!
With so many ways to use Mason jars, the possibilities seem endless! How would you incorporate these versatile jars into your party or wedding?
