Blue Mason Jars

The latest addition to my collection is these gorgeous blue mason jars. I seriously love these jars. Even on their own they look stylish, the colour, the size, the design. Then you add flowers and water and they really come to life.

John Landis Mason patented his jar in 1858, the perfect jar for home-food preservation, which was tricky in those days! His invention sparked a home-canning revolution that lasted until the 1950’s

These jars make amazing centrepieces, perfect for a wedding, christening or birthday party. They can also be hung to make stunning candle holders or pew ends. Or you could just use them to serve drinks in. Here are some ideas for you …..
