Sure, everyone knows about using mason jars as vases for casual bouquets, but how about lidded mason jars, which have a fun rustic character all their own? And here's the big idea: one could certainly place a table number or a sweet message within the lid which hangs off to the side! Let me know if you do it! And you can also check out my DIY succulent centerpiece which I also assembled using a lidded mason jar.
I made this arrangement with the left overs from our gorgeous Shavuos flowers, and am now thinking that I need to fill the house with flowers, even a little arrangement like this, more often! As my Dutch readers know, that's one thing that the Dutch have figured out.....fresh cut flowers are one of life's simple pleasures, and one should not be without them!
And this by the way is just one of the fantastic things I noticed during my visits to The Netherlands.....can you tell I'm in need of a little return visit?
