Mason Jar Themed Bridal Shower

1000542_660771561809_245950787_n

This mason jar themed bridal shower is adorable for a summer shower, and easy to put together!

Mason jar shaped labels for food and drinks make a cute accessory for the themed shower. There are many templates on google but the template from Sweetly Scrapped Blog was used for these. There are several different mason jar shapes, so choose the one you like! Simply print out the template and trace it on to a piece of scrapbook paper, color of your choice, and cut it out (you can fit about 3 or 4 on one sheet of paper). Then cut white scrap book paper for the top and the middle to write on. Last, tie a piece of twine around the top.

Brides- What other mason jar ideas have you seen?

DIY- Vintage Windowpane Seating Chart

Image

A windowpane seating chart gives a unique twist to your average escort board at your wedding reception, and is quick and simple to make!

You will need: An old window pane found at a junk yard, or a new one found at Home Depot/Lowes (which you can then paint and sand to give it a roughed up, vintage look.) and a paint marker.

Write the table numbers followed by the guests to be seated at that table on each windowpane. To do this you can use your best handwriting, or print out what you want each window pane to say in the font you want and tape it to the back of the glass. You can then trace over the words with your paint marker. Thats it! You have your fabulous wedding reception seating chart.

Brides- you could use this windowpane idea for your signature drink sign also!
