Mason Jar Place Setting Bouquets

I was asked recently on FB if I would be able to offer up some ideas 
for wedding table inspirations.
Ideas that had a bit of shabby, romantic touches.
I thought it sounded like a fun idea for a series and so 
am working on that over the next couple weeks.

So today~ I am starting with a snippet of an outdoor table setting I am working on.
It's only a snippet because I am staying indoors trying to help sinus issues with 
all the insane amount of wind blowing the pollen
So, I will share the full outdoor table soon.

One of my favorite things to do is to place a little bouquet at each setting at the table.
In silver goblets or dainty little glasses- love them.
Lately, I have been drawn to using simple jars and picked some of these cuties up
while at the store the other day~ I think they were around $8

These are just so sweet.
For the bouquets~ they are just little quilted canning jars
tied with a strand of burlap 
and filled with spray roses and cute white poms

I love that the jars came with these darling labels too
Perfect for adding a name to a place setting for a shower or luncheon 
and then the guests can take their sweet little bouquets home as a party treat.

So planning on doing this for my next Summer dinner party.
Especially since these are $4 spray roses and small jars- you don't need a lot of flowers
for a lot of charm- just a few snipped short enough to fill the jars.

A set of new flatware that looks collected is perfect. 
I love the vintage look they have.
Darling pale pink floral napkins are a sweet compliment to them.

They didn't start out this way- more on those soon.

Loving simple and soft romantic touches for this table
especially when thinking of weddings or showers or just
an everyday brunch with friends.

  11. I saw the picture on pinterest first and I just loved the bouquet. You certainly have a way with setting a table from small to large. The amount of roses you must buy each week.

  12. Some weeks more than others :) These are actually just the $4 spray roses from the grocery store. Planning on doing a post about grocery store flowers sometime since I get so many questions about how to find them :)

  13. So pretty, Courtney. Your photos are always so gorgeous. I love using canning jars for my arrangements too but yours are always so elegant.. The silver adds that perfect touch.

  14. I love the little pink roses I just bought myself some for my kitchen
    I put mine in a flo blue pitcher

    I like the little jars also, I don't think anyone can go wrong with roses for any occasion

  15. Everything looks so pretty-I can't wait to see more in this series.

  16. these inexpensive jars are the best buy for your money. We just tinted a bunch for a wedding and they came out great. there's so much you can do with them. Thanks for these beautiful photos, they're so inspiring.

  19. Courtney, love this idea! I'm going to use it for my next dinner party with girl friends. The little quilted jars add a nice touch. Those roses are beautiful and really make a statement.

  20. Those roses are gorgeous! That pink is so delicate. I have a rose bush that blooms in May and they are that color...I just love them! Like the inside of a conch shell ! The pollen is awful here...makes my throat raw.....can't wait to see the whole table!
