So many ways to use Ball mason jars
When I am giving a floral arrangement to someone as a gift I always use a Ball mason jar for the vase. It gives the floral arrangement a farmhouse feel and is inexpensive so the recipient doesn’t feel the need to return it. It is the perfect feel better, thank you, I am thinking of you, congratulations gift. Who doesn’t like to receive flowers? For many of the baby showers I have hosted I also used these as both floral arrangements to decorate the table and thank you gifts for the guests to go home with.
Glasses for parties
I love to use mason jars as glasses for parties. They give the party such a cozy farmhouse feel and look beautiful with pretty paper straws. I typically have pitchers of cucumber infused water, ice tea, and lemonade set out so guests can help themselves! I have also tied strings around the top of the mason jar with name cards in the past so people can know what glass is theirs.
Mini lanterns for candles
There is something so cozy about a candle burning in a mason jar! Previously I have used different sized mason jars with candles in them for a centerpiece display on our dining room table and they also look beautiful inside a mini wreath as shown here. I would love to get some of the amber colored mason jars to add into a fall display with candles!
Holders for straws and silverware
I always use mason jars for straws in my beverage area and as silverware holders at the start of my buffet line at parties. I have one jar assigned to forks, one assigned to knifes, and one assigned to spoons.
Hopefully I have given you some inspiration for using mason jars in your own home decor! They invoke such a cozy farmhouse feel and are the perfect inexpensive home decor and party essential.
