Message in a Mason Jar

9th December 2012


Guest blog post by Hayley Shum of Wholehearted Studio Styling, who is our resident thing finder, on the hunt for the cutest, most unique wedding favours to be found locally on the Sunshine Coast.  

One of the big trends that has been taking weddings, events and homewares by storm is the humble Mason jar. First made in 1858 in Philadelphia America by tinsmith John Landis Mason, the Mason jar has become an iconic jar that is sought after by many collectors.

So you can imagine my pure delight when I saw that one of my favourite local stores, Willow & Bird, located right here in our home town of the Sunshine Coast, was selling authentic mason jars! Priced from $29.99, these jars would make a perfect addition to the vintage wedding. 

Placed on tables as centrepieces, you could bring the guestbook to your guests, so they can leave a message for you without leaving their seats. Get guests writing on lovely papers scroll them up and seal the lid. Alternatively the Mason jar makes for gorgeous vases for your blooms. 

They have a few in stock but I am sure they won't be around forever!
