It’s 10 minute decorating time again, friends. On today’s docket: mason jars filled with dried lavender.
I have the privilege of decorating my brother’s upcoming rehearsal dinner and wedding, and since the rehearsal dinner is outside at a nature sanctuary, rustic elegance is the name of the game.
Rustic elegance and simplicity, that is. And budget. And efficiency… 😉
But beautiful, of course. Because quick and budget friendly doesn’t have to mean you have to settle.
And I thought these little centerpieces were the perfect thing for 10 minute decorating with mason jars. I love dried lavender because… well… it’s dry (i.e. maintenance free!). But it still smells good. And it doesn’t look dead.
So grab some dried lavender and mason jars and have some fun.
If you want to add embellishments to your mason jars, go for it.
Tie a ribbon or use a little hot glue. It will peel off pretty easily when you are ready to remove it.
Consider adding other dried greenery.
Or use a little mason jar inside a larger one if you want to add some inexpensive fresh flowers.
I also love grabbing a bunch of fresh herbs, like this rosemary. I added a few sprigs of the dried lavender, too, for a pop of purple.
Dried lavender buds make an excellent filler, too. Put them around candles or use them as a base for other greens.
You can’t really go wrong, can you?
Though I will be using these for a wedding, they would be beautiful in any home: put them on your mantel, your kitchen counter, your dining room table… Anywhere!
