V4 Feature :: Mason Jars

Mason jars: you either love ’em or you hate ’em. We happen to love them, no matter what anyone else says! And these clever ideas for repurposing them? They just make us love our masons even more! Jose Villa and Lisa Vorce teamed up to create this gorgeous spread, and we’re so glad they did. Let me walk you through a few of their delightful ideas!

Use the smallest-size mason jars to hold individual servings of pie or crumble.

Elicit one last “oooh” and “ahhh” from your guests with these petite jars of yogurt paired with individual bags of granola! You can find similar jars right here.

How ingenious is this?! Individual servings of raw oysters, each nestled in its own mason jar. Add ice and a single-serve bottle of Tabasco sauce, and you’ve got a jaw-dropping hors d’oeuvres!

This next idea is perfect for a summer wedding: individual servings of ice cream scooped into mason jars! The seersucker fabric tops make them three times as cute (yep, there’s some math for you!).

Anyone who says mason jars are country and rustic, period, need to take a look at this final idea. It’s my favorite of them all: a mason jar champagne tower!

There’s even more inspiration than we featured here, so hop on over to the editorial gallery!
