Aqua Mason jars

Feb 19, 2009

Recently, I was reminded of just how much I adore vintage aqua Mason jars ... the color alone makes me happy and I have several in our home that I use for storing scissors and craft supplies ... and the occasional bouquet of flowers! ;o)

... But I absolutely love when they're used in weddings. If I hadn't collected so much pretty milk glass for our own wedding, I definitely would have mixed in some aqua Mason jars. They add a crazy amount of charm and have such a laidback, Southern vibe. They're not only great for creating centerpieces (I think a cluster of three look just right!) ... they also look magical with tealights inside! You could sprinkle sand or pieces of seaglass beneath the tealight for a beach or lakeside wedding. These sweet jars are also perfect for serving low-country lemonade or sweet tea to guests before your ceremony.

... And they tend to coordinate with just about everything! Bright, colorful floral arrangements (tulips, dahlias) tend to pop with the contrast while lush pastel peonies could create a soft, romantic look.
Anyone used/using blue vintage Mason jars?
