Mason Jar Inspired Bridal Shower

Wedding season has officially begun...engagement parties, bridal showers and bachelorettes, OH MY!

Five of my friends/sorority sisters will be tying the knot this summer (yes I said FIVE)...and I can't wait for each of these beautiful brides to walk down the aisle!

As a bridesmaid and want to be party planner, I hosted a Bridal Shower, along with the other Bridesmaids at my house in Prairie Village, KS. Nikki's Wedding Reception will take place at Mildale Farm and we really wanted to capture some of the rustic wedding ideas from her reception into her shower...especially the Mason Jars!

Below are various pictures from the shower that I hope inspire you....

Mason jars lined the fire place with small votive candles and raffia tied around (candles not lit in pictures)
Burlap table runner with different sized mason jars as the center piece
The "bar"...we served punch in mason jars for a nice fun cocktail
We asked  each guest to write their "key to happiness" for the future bride and groom, this also served as a great guest book for the shower.
As a take away gift, granola in mini mason jars for all the guests
 Thank you to all the lovely Bridesmaids who helped plan this shower!!
