Happy Wednesday! We’re helping you cross ‘awesome bridesmaid gift’ off your wedding to do list with these oh-so-sweet, ultra-girly DIY apothecary bottles from Formal Fringe. The tutorial – which includes a free printable! – uses clear glass bottles (from Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, or other local craft store), transfer labels, and decorative drawer pulls – my latest obsession. I recently visited Hobby Lobby and discovered an entire aisle dedicated to drawer pulls and decorative knobs; I’m in love. In this tutorial, Taryn adds water and a splash of red food coloring to give the decorative bottles a pink effect. As an alternative, we think it would be fun to add your favorite pink bubble bath. Wrap up the bottle in a pretty ribbon, attach a luxurious loofah, and gift to bridesmaids as a spa-inspired gift. You could also add a few drops of essential oil as a chic tabletop fragrance diffuser. Read on to see more…

Just when you thought you had seen all of the possible desserts-in-a-jar combinations, a fun idea comes along to make you smile. These incredible smores in a jar cakes will delight guests of all ages and they are easy-to-DIY (get the full how-to scoop here). I’m not sure if I love this because a) it is a genius idea, b) it is less messy to eat than a traditional smore, or c) last weekend I did tons of camping and bonfire-ing, consuming yummy s’mores along the way. OK, all of the above! This yummy cake in a jar will make a unique wedding favor your guests will always remember (+ immediately enjoy!).

Spotted: A mason jar centerpiece for coffee lovers! It’s easy to DIY – fill regular mason jars with coffee beans, add fresh flowers, and place on tables. Easy, peasy. We recommend flowers in a bright color that will contrast the brown so the jars really POP. We love the pink shown below:

What’s more fun than yummy cheesecake? Cheesecake in a jar, of course! It’s clear that I have a bit of an obsession with anything in a jar these days (such as bubbles, cookies, cherry pie, ice cream + candles to name a few…) and cheesecake is no exception. The best part of cheesecake has to be the fruit pairings. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries… you name it, I love it. This would make a tasty dessert favor to serve to guests (place jars on ice to keep ‘em chilled!) and even more fun as part of a cheesecake-in-a-jar bar. Have plenty of fresh fruit and granola pairings for guests to choose their own toppings. YUM!

It seems everything is being wrapped up in a jar these days. But, just when we thought we had absolutely seen it all, we spot a new idea that takes us by surprise. Check out this unique wedding bubbles in a jar DIY which incorporates both handmade and vintage details right down to the unique skeleton keys. Your flower girls will have so much fun blowing bubbles as the new Mr. and Mrs. process back down the aisle (and afterward at the reception). Heck, leave out a few extras for guests, too – you’re never too old to get a kick out of bubble jars. We spotted this bubble jar via this real wedding (photographed by Lisa Lefkowitz) which inspired the idea, to which we added our own handmade finds to personalize it a bit. So… without further adieu, take a peek at the visuals + supplies needed to make this brilliant bubble jar a reality for your wedding:
