Yes its true, the containers that our grandmothers used to put soup and sauce in are now used as a shabby chic way of decorating for an event. From backyard parties to weddings, mason jars are todays crave. I have seen them wrapped in burlap and lace, filled with lemons and limes, natural river rocks and crystals. Some people us them as candle holders, candy bar jars, wedding favors and many more. I personally used them at a wedding for the couples signature drink. It was a spiked lemonade, and we paired it with chevron paper straws. People loved it.. they were requesting the mason jars all evening.
You can find them in clear, blue, even gold. So no matter what style or color scheme your event is you can customize your mason jars to fit right in.
