Ideas for Mason Jars- Weddings- Parties & Showers

Garden Shabby Chic - Mason Jar Floral Arrangements
The countless weddings I attend only serve to further my conviction about flowers. Nothing beats the shabby chic beauty of  a simple flora arrangement in a Mason Jar Vase. Especially if you are considering a reception in a cottage garden, botanical garden or backyard, try Blue Mason Jar Centerpiece. For Spring and Fall Weddings place a playful palette of Rose, Lavender, Peach, and Aqua. 
Ball Jar and Milk Vintage Containers make perfect backdrops for rustic affairs.

Mason Jar Centerpieces- Lemon Slices and Flowers
Wedding Fads come and go too fast, but there's something we will always love about the traditional Mason Jar. For summer and spring gatherings, we positively adore the Sliced Lemon look in the clear Mason Jar Vase.  Lemon and Flowers in Mason Jars denote summer, chic, and breezy. The flowers you shall use will depend whether you will be using the Mason Jar Centerpiece for Wedding, Couple Shower, or Intimate Dinner. 

Lemons and Flowers in Glass Mason Jar Idea

For rather small bridal showers or dinners, colorful flowers will enhance the lemons and Mason Jar centerpiece as a whole. 
But - White Flowers will make the Lemon Slices Pop at large Wedding Receptions or Showers. 
To coordinate the Hydration Station, you can always place Mason Jar Drinking Cups, and Mason Jar Beverage Dispensers. See more Here. 

It it time to get crafty! And you don't even have to be the DIY type to complete this project. We loved this Lace Mason Jar as a wedding centerpiece, however you can use it as a party favor for any occasion listed next on our Calendar. 
Materials You Need:
  • Vintage Lace Fabric or Lace Hanky
  • Scissors (sewing)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Twine - Optional
  • Glass Mason Jars
Using a hot glue gun ( keep kids away), softly glue the lace fabric onto the Mason Jar. To ensure that you dont have frayed edges, tuck in the ends before sticking them on. Depending on the occasion, embellish the jar with twine or ribbon. 
When presenting the jars as a gift, you can decorate the lid too and then fill the Mason Jar with chocolates, sweets, and all else. For an inspirational centerpiece, decorate a few Mason Jar vases in assorted sizes. Showcase the Lace Mason Jars on a vintage tray. Then, ignite the tea lights in them and watch the flames dance through the lace. So Beautiful!

Vintage Hydration Station - Wedding Receptions

If you are planning an outdoor wedding reception for the Summer or Fall, it is important to keep guests cool and hydrated. There are so many different ways to set up a drink station; allow Classic Hostess to be the inspiration behind your individualized and unique Wedding Hydration Station. 

Today we say, scrap the table and opt for something more visually attractive. Use a distressed armoire, or mirror and furniture, to add a vintage element to your ceremony decor. You can also drape that home decor with flowers and fruits for a smattering of color at the drink station. The lovely sample below uses the Rocks Borough Beverage Dispenser . A Glass and Chrome Beverage Server which can hold a delightful 2.5 gallons of drinks for larger crowds.


All you need to make your dream wedding a reality! This is Classic Hostess #1 page for all wedding planners, party coordinators, newly engaged couples, brides, and even bridesmaids.  A passionate project of several Classic Hostess designers and event coordinators, our mission is to guide you and keep you updated on all Bridal Showers, Party Favors, and Ceremony Decor ideas.
