Today’s Happy little Martha Wedding tip is adorable so I decided to share with ya’ll.

Yes I said ya’ll. Well Mason jars are southern right? People sing about them, and drink out of them. It’s pretty great. I love it.

So now you can use them to light the pathway to your reception venue, or place on your tables as easy-peasy centerpieces. I kind of love them. Plus… they’re super inexpensive. This version plays with the aqua and emerald color scheme which, yes is pretty darn great, but you can do this with anything. Use clear mason jars and adorn with pretty pink ribbon, or bright yellow polka dot ribbon or go effortlessly classic with simple white. Whatever works for your particularly fabulous soiree. You can buy mason jars in bulk from craft stores or online at Amazon. Or shop thrift stores and garage sales for unique glass blown mason jars in a variety of colors and shapes for a more casual vintage feel.

If you want to hang them, check out this easy DIY tutorial from A Backyard Wedding.

 BEWARE: Jars can get very hot!
*Martha’s tip: Fill each jar with 1/8 inch of water before setting votives inside.
