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…

Happy Saturday! I can always tell it’s the weekend when I leap out of bed eager to get crafting. (Is it because I’m an active member of Create Every Day? Must be.) Today I am planning to make a burlap table runner for my bistro table on the front porch. There’s a neighbor down the street who sets up an entire vignette, so to speak, on her front porch. It always looks so warm and inviting. Of course, I can’t curl up on her Adirondack chair and curl up with a good book – that would be weird. So, I’m making my own. ;) I’m starting with a table runner, adding a vase full of flowers, a lantern, some comfy chairs, and throw pillows. I want to make it a nice little reading nook to sit and drink coffee in the morning. I very much enjoy sitting on my porch when it rains, too – it’s one of those little pleasures in life. But, there’s no rain today – there’s a big blue sky full of sunshine which is fantastic because my cousin is getting married today! Happy wedding day to Erin + John and to all of the brides and grooms tying the knot today! Enough about me and my ramblings, let’s get to the post, shall we? Today we’re featuring these adorable mason jar tags. These terrific little tags take my love (ok, obsession) for the thrifty jars to an entirely new level. Not only do I love them because they’re colorful and completely charming, but they’ll coordinate nicely should you use mason jar centerpieces throughout your event, too. Your initials are placed onto the front of the jar along with your wedding date for complete customization. The tags are handcrafted and stamped with a polka dot and brown theme, which works well in any season. I love the linen colored twine! Mason jar tag measures 1.75″ x 2.75″. Take a peek…

Well, it continues to be a sweltering hot summer out there! I’m not complaining. ;) When you’re planning an outdoor summer wedding, though, keep an eye on your refreshments. It’s important to keep guests well-hydrated, especially if you’re serving alcohol. One of our favorite suggestions? Mason jar drinks with ginger ale. These charming glasses are easy to DIY, too. Buy this size jar, add ginger ale, strawberries, and plenty of ice. Serve. It’s non-alcoholic, too, which means guests of all ages will enjoy this refreshment.

Last week, we showed you the oh-so-yummy cheesecake in a jar, and today we’re showing you a slight spin on the in-a-jar craze: rainbow cake in a jar!

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!

This mason jar centerpiece is easy-to-DIY for your wedding! Adding candlelight creates a romantic atmosphere and these mason jars will add both a rustic and whimsical touch. First, you’ll need mason jars (you can buy them in bulk here for about $1 each) and fill with water. Next, tie a decorative ribbon (or raffia, as shown below) to the top of the jar in a bow. Place a floating candle (preferably long burning) in each jar and group approximately 3-4 jars together on each table. Light each candle and enjoy!

Nothing says summertime like backyard BBQs, fireworks, and cherry pie. If you’re planning a summer wedding, a cherry pie in a jar would make a fun favor to give to your guests. These mini cherry pies can be pre-made and frozen ahead of time, so you won’t have to bake 100+ pies the night before the wedding. ;) We spotted these via Not Martha, who did a fabulous job with her cherry pies and even provides a how-to tutorial here.
More coming up soon!
