Here is a table setting I used recently for a party. It was three jars - one large ball jar, one medium ball jar, and one medium white jar - with yellow and white flowers in them. Very simple. I loved it!
You can also see from the above pictures that I drink out of mason jars - both canning mason jars and some mason jars with handles that I found somewhere along the way. The cute table cloth is from Dwell Studios.
I absolutely love colored mason jars. I love the extra "chicness" a blue jar gives a table setting. I recently came across some violet colored mason jars on Etsy and haven't been able to stop thinking about them since!
Here is another Ball jar that I have on top of the white table I painted and posted about last week. This particular jar is a widemouth jar, which I find to be much better suited for flowers. I often tie ribbon or twine around the neck of the jars.
This is a Royal Crest Milk bottle that I picked up at an estate sale in Denver. I love the shape of it! I have it in my basement bathroom. It is amazing how much flowers brighten up a windowless room!
I picked up this bottle in Hallowell, ME. It says "Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription For the Cure of the Chronic Weaknesses and Complaints Peculiar to Females." I keep a linen rose in this bottle, because I am afraid of getting a drop of water close to that fragile label!
This is a malted milk bottle that I also picked up in Hallowell, ME. This beauty is currently the home to my feather collection. When I purchased it, it had an odd grainy ash inside of it, and I had to ask the antique store owner to call the seller of this jar to make sure I wasn't purchasing grandma with the jar! I still have no idea what was in it, but she assured me it was not grandma :)
And finally, these jars (two ball jars, one jar without any insignia) hold corks, buttons, and sea shells. They are currently clustered on top of a bookshelf in my reading room.
And those are a few of my favorite things :)
