Patented in 1858 by New Jersey native John Landis Mason, the jar that now bears his name was originally designed to make food preservation a less cumbersome chore for home cooks. More than 150 years later, this jar with the threaded neck and screw-on lid is still very useful, and not just for canning preserves either.
As a leading Atlanta wedding rental company, we have seen first-hand how brides and wedding planners turn to the humble Mason jar for amazing wedding decor and unique giveaways. Below are some of our favorite ideas.
Since they’re made of thick, heat-resistant glass, you can place a candle inside a Mason jar with no fear of breakage. They’re perfect for holding votive candles as part of a romantic table setting.
You can also tie a bunch of them together, loop string lights through them and hang them around the perimeter of your outdoor wedding reception. They will provide not only ample lighting for your guests to safely find their way but also a pretty-as-a-picture backdrop for photos.
Mason Jar Centerpieces
You can choose jars of varying height and size to add depth to your table setting. Fill them with your favorite flowers or brightly-colored glass pebbles for variety and an added pop of color. A Mason jar with water and a votive candle floating in the center is a great conversation starter. Adding a drop or two of food coloring and using a scented votive candle will only pique the interest of your guests even more.
Turn a Mason jar into a snow or glitter globe with a miniature bride and groom figurine inside and you have a unique wedding giveaway for your guests to take home. Another great giveaway idea is to cover the lid of a small Mason jar with sandpaper and fill the jar with matches. Then tie a ribbon at the neck of the jar with your names and wedding date printed on it. This way your guests will remember what a great match you two make every time they light a match.
