    I am using the blue-tint jars (from my in-laws canning days) for beverages at my son’s birthday party since I’m doing red, white and light blue!

      That sounds like an amazing color scheme and I love the idea of using the mason jars as cups. That will be a fun little detail at the party!

    So many great ideas! But I LOVE that mason jar chandelier! How clever is that. I have several antique blue canning jars that I used to store homegrown, dried herbs on my kitchen counter. I use them in cooking – and in my homemade soaps! This was such a fun post. So many possibilities beyond use for canning tomatoes and green beans. :-)

      I am in love with the idea of storing dried herbs in them! I might just have to do that myself now. :)

    I bought the shorter glass candle sticks holdersfrom the dollar store and glued them to the bottom of my mason jars with e6000 and use them to drink from. Makes them more elegant. Also Walmart is featuring the blue mason jars which u can purchase separately. Thanks for sharing

      What a great idea! Thanks for letting us know about Walmart’s sale…I love those blue mason jars!
