Mason jars. Not originally intended for floral display, rather as canning jars used to preserve the season's bounty.
In recent years they have gained in popularity for use in crafts, weddings and for floral display.
With all of the Mason jar chandeliers that we create in the shop...I always have a good supply around.
For my weekly floral arranging these jars are the perfect size.
Perfect for any season.
They can be found quite easily in various sizes and colors. I prefer the vintage Mason jars, or Ball jars. There are now reproductions on the market as well.
Not limiting my floral display to Masons that are sometimes not large enough, I often style flowers in pickle jars that I keep on hand. Above is an antique French pickling jar that I purchase many years ago at a flea market. I love it's nice large size for those taller arrangements.
The jar above is a new pickle jar that I painted in a lavender color by using food coloring.
Not to be overlooked for entertaining...a vintage Mason jar set on a beach themed table filled with bits of collected beach glass and flatware.
