Hey, mason jar lovers: you thought you’ve seen it all. Until now. Have you seen mason jar shot glasses? These tiny, 2.4oz shot glasses are threaded at the top to look like the real deal. There’s no lid, but then again, you don’t really need one. The front of each glass is appropriately stamped with, simply, “shots”. These mason jar shot glasses make a perfect wedding party gift (I can picture groomsmen toasting the groom with these) or post-celebration with the whole crew. Give them as gifts to your wedding party attendants or buy ‘em in bulk and give them out to guests as a charming barn wedding favor. Check ‘em out up close…

Good morning, sweethearts! We’re kicking off this lovely Tuesday with a little mint wedding inspiration. Mint is said to be ‘the wedding color of the year’ and for good reason: mint green is an incredibly soft, versatile shade which can be applied to any detail of your wedding. If you’re plan to add mint to your palette, use sparingly and complement with a neutral shade like ivory or cream for best results. We’ve rounded up a few of our newest favorite mint finds (all handmade, of course!) to inspire you. Take a peek and let us know… what do you think of mint? Would you use this shade in your color palette?
