If possible could the centerpiece ones be blue and the drink ones clear or vice versa?

@coletteadele: Absolutely NOT! You can never have too many mason jars.

I’m biased though 😉

Just be prepared that some people ,ay find it strange. Its a cute idea but I wouldn’t like it because i wouldn’t want to have to be looking around wondering where the heck I put my jar down while mingling. What happens if a guest breaks their jar? Do you have enough for backups?

Can you use 2 different sizes? Bigger ones for the centerpieces? I like the idea of using both either way… it’s fun and cute!

It might be a little much depending on how big your tables are. If they are small tables, from far away it might look a little cluttered. I do LOVE the drinking glass idea though, those are adorable, especially w/ the paper straws! Either way, If you space them out enough I’m sure they won’t look tacky. Mason jars could never look tacky, they are too darn cute!

Okay, so I would LOVE to do the drinking glass thing, but with the number of guests we will have it’s just not feasible.

We’re having 5 foot round tables and a long banquet table for the WP. Here are my centerpices (because I love sharing) and hopefully you can see how much cool stuff can be done with jars. They are so versatile!

Here’s the round table centerpieces

And this will be on our WP table

Oh, oh oh! AND I found this big fella at a peddlers mall! It’s going on our guest sign in table 🙂

I actually planned on doing the same thing…but once everything was on the table (during my trial run) it just looked TOO busy for me. My mason jars aren’t blue though so I think that will make a big difference. Also, if you plan to put the names on the mason jars, they can also double as escort cards…just a thought. Do a mock-up and see if you like it.

I think I would do one or the other…

In my opinion, you can NEVER have too many mason jars. 🙂 But I could be biased because I’m using them, too.

I really like the idea of using the aqua jars for your centerpieces and the clear jars for drinking.

What about baby food jars? They’re much smaller and could even be “favor size”. You could probably put tealights in them and use them as candles during the reception.
