Painted Mason Jar Centerpiece

Good morning! It’s Friday, can you believe it? It feels like I was just talking about how fast last week went by. We are kicking off this beautiful Friday morning with a painted mason jar centerpiece spotted over at Beach Blues, today’s #HANDMADEADAY find! When it comes to painted mason jars, Missy of Beach Blues is the expert. She has some of the prettiest painted mason jars I’ve ever seen — and a bunch of color combinations to top it off. If you’re looking for a color palette, I recommend checking out her ready-made designs where she has tons of pretty shades (even ombre). In this find, she’s paired together a light pink and white mason jar set, tied them together with a personalized ribbon, and filled them with elegant flowers. It’s an easy-to-do centerpiece that ties in well with a shabby chic, romantic, or classic wedding theme. See the photos below!

Why Glassware Makes an Obviously Awesome Gift

Looking for personalized glassware gifts? You’ll love what we’ve rounded up today! Make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss a thing!

I drink lots of coffee everyday, usually out of my trusty ol’ personalized E mug and that is a fact. And I love the heck out of that thing. I think it cost a total of $3 on an end-cap at Target and Andrew picked it up for me one day. You see, there’s got to be a science behind it because people love to drink out of personalized glassware. People adore mugs with quirky sayings, like telling everyone your coffee is on fleek or that you do these three things everyday. Some people need a visual reminder to, you know, get their sh!t done and to respect the hustle. You see, people go nuts over glasses with caricatures of themselves and pop culture tie-ins, like telling everyone you drink more coffee than a Gilmore, or stayed up late to watch Fallon and his EW! segment. Or maybe, just maybe, you’re a little bit Ron Swanson and hate talking to people about things. And that’s okay because not everyone is a morning person and it’s important to keep your priorities straight.

And it’s not just coffee mugs, you guys: it seems even champagne tastes better when sipped out of a personalized glass.

Hanging Mason Jar Vases: What Size to Use

Are you looking for chic ceremony decor? Just use hanging mason jar vases! But first… you have to admit that mason jars have pretty much taken over the wedding world. We’ve seen our beloved pint-sized jars used as drinking glasses, projects and insanely creative mason jar ideas, and we’ve even seen a plastic version of mason jars for non-glass venues. That’s how much they’re loved. Today we’re answering an Ask Emmaline question from Marie, who asks, “I’m hanging mason jar vases for my ceremony aisle. What size should I use?” Read on to find out…

Hanging Mason Jar Vases

The right size for hanging mason jar vases is 16 oz (1 pint). This is the perfect size mason jar because your flowers and the amount of water you will need won’t make these jars too heavy to hang. We recommend hanging them from the back of each chair along the aisle (use a heavy wire and pliers around the base to create a loop; secure tightly and hang from a chair back).< Note: if you are making mason jar hanging vases, you'll want to make sure you use these. It will keep your flowers looking perfect all day long./p>
