The next entry in our Ultimate Southern Mason Jar challenge comes from the creative girls at Absolutely Fabulous Weddings. Their mason jar concept is pretty unique, and I love that it includes guest participation! Enjoy the photos from Tiffany Vaughan, and read on for all of the details!
From the ladies:
“Our vision was simple: we wanted to create something that brides could do on their own, and provide an opportunity for guests to show off their Southern personalities!
We wanted each table to tell a story about the couple within an overall rustic/vintage theme. At our imaginary wedding, guests are greeted with a ‘pantry shelf’ set-up (which we created from an old wooden ladder we found in the woods!) as they walk into the reception space. Each guest finds his or her name on a mason jar on the shelf, and takes it to his or her assigned table. Together, the guests at each table use their mason jars and other “fixin’s” already on the table — doilies, natural elements, photo frames, old library books — to create the centerpiece for their spot for the evening. In the end, each table reflects a different aspect of the bride’s and groom’s personalities — some more rustic, some more traditional, some more outdoorsy. The mason jar centerpieces, when fully assembled, should reflect both the couple and the guests seated together for the evening!”
Thank you so much, ladies! Readers, if you love this idea, be sure to comment and let us know! And remember, you’re welcome to comment on more than one entry!
