From recycling bin to reception table – jam jars get glam!
I’ve been contemplating the whole jam jar/vase idea for a while, but I wasn’t sure if they’d look pretty enough plonked on Hannah’s reception tables without any decoration. I had a spare hour at the weekend, so, inspired by some lace I’d collected ages ago, I set about transforming a few plain jars into mini vases fit for a rustic wedding reception. Most of the flowers I picked from my garden were pink or purple, so I chose card in these shades to wrap around each jar before finishing off with the lace and grosgrain ribbon. I know it looks a bit homespun, but hopefully that’s the point! It’s also a fab way to bring a touch of eco-chic to your wedding (although slightly worrying to see how many empty Nutella jars were stashed in my recycling bin!)
