Mason Jars

February 2, 2011

I’m started to notice a recent trend in decorating: mason jars. It’s fascinating to me that an item that is so basic, so simple, can bring out the most beautiful displays.

Not only are mason jars becoming a staple in weddings and parties… 




… but in home decor as well…




One of my goals this year is to make my own mason jar chandelier. There’s something about their rustic beauty that makes any setting feel warm and inviting.

What do you think of the mason jar trend?

    I remember you did this blog about mason jars and I thought of you today. I was in the store Tuesday Morning and they had the mason jars with the numbers on it(the exact same ones pictured above) for $3.99 each!!! Such a deal! I wish I could think of something I could use them for cause they are super cute!!

    Hi Rachel,

    I just discovered your blog. The second image of mason jars (or jam jars as we call them in the UK – what is the difference?) is just spectacular! It has now become my key inspiration image for my wedding table decor. Thanks .m.v.b xxx
