Pile o' Wedding: Centerpieces

We're back with the next edition of Wedding/Party planning! This time we're going to focus on centerpieces. The equation for this one is pretty simple, and cost effective.  Mason Jars + Candles =Awesome.

Kourtney added some ribbon and paper doilies for some extra charm on our big day, but even on their own they would be perfectly charming.

The candles and jars were cute and fun in the daylight:

Tips for your own candlelit mason jar adventures:

  • Don't limit yourself to the "Mason" brand jars. We hoarded any and all glass jars we could find (pickles, pasta sauce, pigs name it, we saved it), and even got friends to send their leftover glass jars our way.
  • Ikea sells large, longer burning tea lights in their candle section--not available for purchase online. They burn for hours, and are just a few dollars for a pack of twenty.
  • Ikea also sells pillar candles on the cheap. We love Ikea.
  • Have lighters or long matches on hand. Anything that can reach down into those jars to light the wick. You do not want to skip this step.
Here's Mindy the fabulous bridesmaid, soaking up that candle lit glow:
