50s Housewife Bridal Shower Part 3 - Lace Wrapped Jars

So here's part 3 of my sister's 50s Housewife themed bridal shower. Her wedding is going to have a vintage modern flavor with a coral and blue color scheme and lots of lace. I wanted to incorporate some of those elements into the decor.

To add some filler pieces, I brought out my stash of canning jars. We used to can fruits and veggies more frequently but just haven't had time in the past couple of years. I couldn't quite part with all our supplies yet so I had a good number of different sized jars to choose from for this project.

They were already clean so I just added white lids to hide the threads. Then using my ATG adhesive, I attached different types and widths of lace. I found some cool, still-in-their-original-packaging vintage lace from a local non-profit called, Creative Re-Use. For only a couple dollars, I got a lace with coral ribbon threaded in it, a blue ribbon lace, a blue tatted lace, and several white laces.
The ATG tape held just fine. (In fact, I think it's going to be a project in itself just to get the tape off the jars now that the shower is over.)

I used the jars on the piano vignette.

I used a few on the server which held the plates, flatware, and napkins.

And I used a few on the kitchen peninsula where we had the drinks.

They looked so pretty with lit tea lights inside. A little lace, a little vintage, a little housewife... perfect!
