Magic with Mason Jars!
Summer is finally here, and that means wedding season is upon us! Summertime also brings us several opportunities to celebrate outdoors, be it a wedding ceremony or a cookout with friends. One of our favorite outdoor decorating trends from recent years has been the prevalence of "country charm" decor, epitomized in the popularity of mason jars. Mason jars are beautiful and versatile, and they give an event a feeling of vintage nostalgia and rustic appeal. As we've searched around on Pinterest and wedding blogs for mason jar ideas, we've compiled some favorites we'd like to share with you!
Sometimes simple is best. Baby's Breath alone in blue-tinted jars, resting on a burlap table runner. Country-chic, and lovely.
2. Painted Mason Jars
Find jars with a fun or uniform text on them and paint with bright colors.
3. Mason Jar Save-the-Dates
These paper reminders from blueenvelope on Etsy are super cute!
4. Mason Jar Tea Lights
Fill the jar with water and float a tea candle on top for charming event lighting.
5. Polka-Dot Masons
This tutorial shows you how to use paint to make dotted lanterns.
Finally, here at Bleu de Toi, we remembered the joyful days of catching fireflies in jars and created our Mason Jar guestbook around that special memory. Catching magic; holding it in your hands; watching as fireflies glow brightest when they're together. What a perfect symbol for any summer gathering!
