I was in charge of my cousin sister’s bridal shower that was held a few months ago at our ancestral home in Alabama. Since my sister is an ardent coffee fan, I decided to make that a theme for the bridal shower favors. After browsing through a lot of websites for ideas, a tutorial on something turquoise caught my attention.
Did you know you can hand paint your old used mason jars to make beautiful centerpieces? They constitute an excellent albeit cheap décor item for weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, Christmas parties, etc.

Ubiquitous at most wedding occasions, the sand ceremony symbolizes the unity of two lives (the bride and the groom), and their respective families. You can take the privilege of collecting sand from your favorite beach or just pick the colored ones visiting any art and craft store. As for the glass receptacles, you can rely on mason jars. Just deck the nifty jars and let the couple have a whale of a time playing with the sand.
Bridal showers could be the perfect occasion to recycle mason jars to create adorable centerpieces. I put my treasure of mason jars to use recently at my cousin’s bridal shower celebrations and was happy to earn accolades for my crafting spirit. During the course of the evening, it became increasingly clear to the family that the guests were swarming to the tables not only for the dinner and refreshments but to have a look at the mason jar decorations since almost all of them congratulated me on my efforts immediately afterward. I thought compiling a few centerpiece ideas in this post along with the tutorials could inspire many mason jar lovers like me.
Planning for the big day involves a lot of work right from fixing the venue to ordering cake. Add to it, the never-ending prenuptial events of which bridal shower holds a special place in every to-be bride’s life. When of one of our pals in the group was getting hitched, I being the maid of honor planned the theme and made the arrangements. The last leg of the exercise was sending out invitation cards to the guests. Keeping in mind the growing trend of mason jars, we decided to make the cards the mason jar way. Although the tutorial I referred to from Crafts Unleashed was on making wedding cards, everything remained the same except for the writing.

I got a set of quaint mason jars as a birthday present and thought of some ideas to redesign them. Here, I would like to share with you a few of them.
Can anyone think of a theme for Halloween without those creepy pumpkins engraved with big eyes and mouth? Most of my friends happen to decorate their homes the same way year after year with bulky pumpkins that are high on price during the fall. In this regard, last year I took the unconventional path courtesy Celebrations and gingered up my abode with adorable mason jar pumpkins (And it had nothing to do with Jack-o’-lantern).
