Jars of Wedding Fun

I have it on good authority that Kate Middleton has been stocking up on jam jars and will be giving home made jams and preserves to the Royal family this Christmas. This got me thinking about all of the ways you can use jam jars in your Wedding.

The great thing about them is that they are cheap and can look really effective. First off they make great favours filled with jam or sweets.

For a fun favour to get your guests talking, how about a cupcake in a jar. You can order these from GDesserts or Lullabelles Cakes (below) or try and make your own using the recipie here. The first one shown below is Victoria Sponge fom GDesserts but they have an array of great flavours to choose from.

Don't understimate the power of the jam jar in making cheap but stylish centrepieces. Stuff them full of flowers and arrange them in groups or wrap them in lace and fill with tea lights. You can also wrap wire around their necks to make hanging lanterns. Take a look at my Pinterest board for more ideas
