Was starting to looking into mason jar and I think they comes with 16 oz and 32 oz.
I was thinking to use the jar and put some fake flowers in it and use ribbon to hang on chairs as aisle decor.
Anyone seen this done/done this before? Which size did you guys use?
Will 16 oz look too small? I am afraid 32 oz will be a bit heavy and can potentially fall.
Any feedbacks will be appreciated. Thanks!

I just bought mason jars for my wedding. I bought 16oz but I am using them to drink out of. Most of the time when I saw them used to hang on the side of chairs I saw them with 16oz. If you want them to be the focal point like on a table or something I would use 32oz.
I bought mine on this website.. they were cheap.. They say “ball mason” on one side and the other side has this fruit symbol thing. I can show you pictures if you want.
I ordered 8oz (way too small) 12oz quilted which are cute and elegant and 16oz.
I know this sounds a little silly but a simple way to check is to look at the pasta sauce at the store.. they have several different sizes and it will give you a feel of it.
I also bought the paint to tint them blue so they look antique. I dont know your colors but I heard it was easy.. Ill let you know =)

I lined our aisle with quart size mason jars, so 32 oz. They were quite heavy, but they were filled with water and fresh flowers. Faux flowers will be considerably lighter. My original plan was to hang them from shepherd’s hooks but my dollar store shepherd’s hooks weren’t strong enough. My florist tied the hooks to some of the chairs and that worked pretty well to stabilize them.

@misslane: thanks for the info! funny thing is, I did pull out my alfredo sauce (16 oz) and tomato sauce (32 oz) from the pantry last night to compare. I didn’t find any mason jars at the stores I went to, so I am guessing the pasta sauce should give me an idea.
Good to know a lot of ppl are using 16 oz. I was worried it being a bit small.
I am still debating if I want to tint the jars or not. Let me know how that goes for you!
@julies1949: thank you! so many pretty examples…

@iheartnerds: Thanks for posting the picture. Now I get a better idea on the jar. 32 oz does seem heavy, even without flower and water.
