Crushing On: Blue Mason Jars


I have been collecting blue mason jars for years now, and I truly delight in every bit of their cheery shade of pale teal blue. We even included them in our vintage inspired wedding to hold flowers--white hydrangeas and ranunculus flowers were our choices.

Today, my collection is woven throughout our decor, both at home and the office, and this week, I'm featuring some gorgeous ideas for how you can style these vintage treasures in your own home decor.



As I already mentioned, we used my collection as vases for our wedding flowers, and they really make a beautiful statement when holding some gorgeous blooms.

One of my other favorite things about mason jars is their versatility to show up in a variety of design ideas. If you're looking for a pop of color, you can add just one or a few to an otherwise neutral color palette. I especially love seeing a few on a fireplace mantel or shelf.

If you're really looking to make a statement, grouping a collection together will definitely do it. Take a look at this absolutely gorgeous collection, owned by Shelby @exceeding.joy and the various ways she captures it so beautifully!
