Disclosure: The Bouqs Co. sent me a beautiful bouquet of flowers in exchange for this review. In addition, there are affiliate links in this post. All opinions are 100% my own.
Hey friends! I've missed you all so much! I've been super busy and I've added more hours to my job at the antique store, so furniture projects and DIY mason jar projects are at the bottom of the list! Even so, I've been working on some projects and I'll get them on here slowly but surely.
The key to the new rental house is repurposing items that I already have and turning them into bright, fun, and functional decor. I finally parted with the sheet music tree centerpiece when we moved, and I decided that I wanted to create a centerpiece with a bunch of mason jars. Then, one day I saw these short pillar candles.
To be honest with you, I bought them because they're $2.50 and I refuse to pay $10+ for a candle. That's when it hit me:
Let's be real here... I'd love to make my own candle in mason jars, or buy the $25 ones that are already made, but I currently don't have the time or money for those.
To help the jars pop a little more on the black table, I put two white washed craft boards underneath. You can buy craft boards at your local hardware store for less than $2.00 each and quickly white wash them. (They're the same ones I use for my DIY photography backdrop.)
Another essential part of an awesome centerpiece: fresh flowers from The Bouqs!
Guys, I adore these flowers! I mean, just look at how beautiful they are! They were delivered in an adorable box and were wrapped with care. I was stunned at how perfect they were even after delivery.
I also appreciate that The Bouqs Company doesn't cut any flowers until they are ordered -- which saves time, money, energy, and creates less waste. Oh, and did I mention that they grow the flowers on an active volcano? Yes, a stinkin' volcano! If you want to learn more about this awesome business, check out their about us page.
Ladies, this is the perfect flower company to suggest to your man. They have a concierge service where he can schedule flowers in advance, so he'll never forget a birthday or anniversary again!
I cut the flowers a bit and put them into a large mason jar in the middle of my mason jar candles. Isn't it so lovely?
The dining room in the new rental home is finally coming along! I just need curtains for the window.
