Did you like my little pun in the title? If you haven’t already figured this out, I am beyond obsessed with mason jars in general. Blue Ball mason jars, specifically. I’ve already found enough to serve as flower holders for the centerpieces at our wedding, so I thought I’d do a little research and find some inspiration for the flowers and settings of these beautiful jars. Here we go…
There’s just something about the combination of blue and yellow that slays me every time. I like both of these flower arrangements, even though they’re very different.
Apparently, I am not the only one who likes this color combination. I’d say the majority of blue mason jar centerpieces I found involve yellow flowers. Excellent!
I love the easy, wildflower feel of these flowers. The mason jars look so pretty against the yellow and green linens.
Now we move on to clear mason jars in this picture. I’m totally digging these flowers. I love how full this arrangement looks.
You can’t go wrong with peonies. Ever.
I believe (and please, correct me if I’m wrong, Mom) the white flowers here are dahlias. Love love love ‘em! I’m also appreciating the ribbon tied around the jar.
I want to do something similar to this one, tying (yellow?) rustic ribbon around each vase. I love the flowers in this arrangement, too.
My conclusions based on these pictures and the rest of my research is that the flower arrangements need to be big and lush in order for my wedding to feel country-chic and not country-cheap. Although I still want to keep things feeling organic and hand-picked, I need to tell the florist to keep the flower heads big and fill in all the empty spaces with smaller buds. All this inspiration has got me pretty pumped for our own centerpieces.
Finally, here’s a brilliant idea for what to do with all the leftover mason jars AFTER the wedding. Hello, Christmas presents next year?
So I ask you all: have you caught the mason jar bug, too? Or are you going for a more polished look with your centerpieces?
