When I went to a wedding last summer, the funniest thing happened. Every time I went to dance, I came back and my drink was gone. Poof. Not empty… missing. Does this happen to you, too? It’s a common occurrence at wedding receptions where the tables are constantly cleared of glasses and silverware in an attempt to keep things neat and tidy.
I get it, I really do. But honestly. I was only gone a minute!
Anyways, that’s why after I found these, I had to let you in on the secret. Every wedding should have these coasters.
The coasters read—quite brilliantly, might I add—“Please don’t take my drink. I’m dancing”.
Smart. Simple. I like.
Love These Wedding Coasters?
I found them at Evermine where you can order yours in a plethora of pretty colors.
We’re always looking for cute, inspiring ways to make your wedding reception awesome. Case in point? This diy mojito in a jar we spotted over at Company Forty Two. I loved these right away, so I knew you’d probably want to see them, too. I always see the traditional mason jars, but rarely do people use these quilted jelly jars nearly enough. And I don’t know why because they’re so insanely cute.
Plus, they’re a smaller size which makes it easier for filling at drink dispensers.
These custom drink stirrers from Company Forty Two are the finishing touch to a perfect mojito in a jar. And don’t forget those mint leaves + lime wedges as garnish.
Pin this for summer, lovelies: this is one cold drink that will be hot in the spring and summer wedding season.
Mojito in a Jar » Recipe
yields 20 servings
♥ 8 oz. jelly jars
For the base:
♥ 1 cup granulated sugar
♥ 1 cup water
♥ 1 (4-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated on the large holes of a box grater (about 1/3 cup packed)
♥ 2 cups tightly packed fresh mint leaves (from about 2 bunches)
♥ 1 (750-milliliter) bottle white rum
♥ 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 18 medium limes)
♥ 2 1/4 cups club soda, chilled
♥ 12 fresh mint sprigs
Make up a batch!
For the base:
1. In a small saucepan, bring the sugar, water, and ginger to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the mint leaves, stir to combine, and let cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.
2. Place a fine-mesh strainer over a 1-1/2- to 2-quart container and strain the syrup, discarding the solids. Add the rum and lime juice and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.
1. For 1 drink, fill an 8-oz jar with ice. Add 1/2 cup of the Mojito base, top with 3 tablespoons of the club soda, and stir to combine. Garnish with a mint sprig.

Don’t let it fall! This big wedding Jenga photo is terrific. This giant size tumble tower is a hit among party guests for receptions and especially a way to keep all the kids (even the big ones) having fun! The blocks were tumbling just as Tamara from Silver Thumb Photography captured the guests’ reaction. The couple Meghan and John definitely know how to throw a party!
