The mason jar used to be popular only with the canning community. Gardeners would buy them in all sizes and preserve their fresh veggies as the produce was gathered in summer.
Suddenly this little jar is most popular with the couple planning a wedding with a rustic, country theme. The short, stocky, glass jars are used as centerpiece holders that contain flowers of all types. They are wrapped in burlap and tied with twine or jute. It's popular to hang them from posts, fences or trees as well.
Designers at the Zazzle site have also used the mason jar as a featured image for wedding invitations, shower invitations and much more.
