Red White and Blue Mason Jars

{  Red White and Blue Mason Jars }



If I have the time and money, I'd throw a party for everything! Cookouts, Birthdays, Holidays, baby shower, wedding showers, if there is a reason to get together, I want to make everything perfect. Every little detail matters!

I made these cute mason jars for our drinks for our Memorial day weekend. I'm planning on using these all summer, not just on patriotic holidays. I love anything that is red, white and blue. Makes my heart happy. :)


Oh and plus, Some of these have chalkboard labels so if you wanted to make them personal with someone's name for the party you could. You could either use real chalk (which will rub off), or if you're looking for more of a permanent label you could use chalk paint. I think either way, they are super cute!
