Mason jars have become very popular in wedding decor lately. But there are lots of ways to incorporate this vintage element into your wedding decor besides using them as containers for your floral arrangements (although they are great as containers!) Here are some different ways I have found for you to use mason jars in decorating your wedding (or party, or home):
Top Row: Drink jar by Sabine Scherer, jar with river rocks and candle by Kate Harrison, jar chandelier by Jamie Grenough via Style Me Pretty, hanging jars with florals by Jennifer Roper
Bottom Row: Jar escort cards by Sean Walker, jelly jar drink by Ian Grant, lots of jars and candles via 100 Layer Cake, floating candle in jar by Jennifer Roper
I love the idea of using the jars as candle holders, either floating them in water or putting river rocks in the jar. And how amazing is that mason jar chandelier! I had to post another shot of it:
I’ve been a vocal fan of Etsy since I started this blog, and I want to devote a post a week to my favorite new Etsy finds or sellers. This week, I am loving these fun package wrapping supplies by Etsy seller maythird. I love giving gifts and sending packages, and I think it is really important to wrap packages pretty! They could also be incorporated into favors, escort cards, or on welcome bags for your wedding.
Have a lovely weekend. xx
If you have handwriting as terrible as I do, you can’t handwrite anything, especially when you are sending or showing it to another person. That is why I love these calligraphy stamps.
Calligraphy Love Stamps
The address stamps are a also a great affordable alternative to having your calligrapher add your return address to your invitation envelopes…just buy an address stamp in the matching style and stamp your envelopes (carefully!) yourself. And then you can use it on all of those thank you cards you’ll be sending too.
The new issue of Martha Stewart Weddings
is entitled “Pretty in Pink,” and it really is! Taking its inspiration from ballerinas, it features some of the softest, fluffiest, and most romantic gowns I have ever seen. If I didn’t know I would look ridiculous, I would wear a pink tulle tutu everyday (at least in the privacy of my own home), so I absolutely loved the theme. So, as I often do when I am inspired, I made a board based on the new MSW issue
