Mason Jar Candle Centerpiece

Posted September 8, 2011 | 16 Comments

Good morning, lovelies! Remember a few months ago when we showed you this amazing cascading hydrangea table runner? We thought it was one of the most stunning ideas for summertime weddings. So, today we’re back to showcase one of our favorite centerpiece ideas for fall! This mason jar candle centerpiece is easy to DIY and only requires mason jars, candles, and matches. This centerpiece will set a romantic ambiance to your wedding reception decor to completely light up the night. We recommend this for long rectangular tables which will look best. The key is to use TONS of mason jars to make a stunning visual impact – and don’t forget to use 12 hour or longer burning votive candles. You won’t want them to go out mid-reception!

    We love using simple elements in volume, volume, volume. What a simple, stylish bohemian or eclectic solution.

    I agree. These mason jars make a big statement! During the day, they can be used as vases, too, which makes great use of the jars throughout the entire event.

    Thanks for the comment!
