A few weeks ago, Lauren of Palm Papers and I teamed up to submit our project to Southern Weddings Magazine for their “Ultimate Southern Challenge: Mason Jars.” We came up with the idea of creating a “Sweet Tea Kit” in a mason jar, which is perfect for escort cards, favors or, centerpieces. Our entry made it to the finals, and between reader responses and editors votes, we won! Bragging rights, at least.
We met up at Celestial Park in Addison, and had a mini photo shoot on a park bench. Literally.
Want to create your own? It’s easy!
To assemble, simply fill each mason jar with a few sugar cubes, Lipton tea bags, and one small lemon (or other colorful fruit). Wrap each jar with a little baker’s twine (we love Divine Twine) and a small gift tag, and then give to guests as a sweet favor, or display on table tops as centerpieces or as part of the place setting to add a pop of color to your decor!
Be sure to check out Lauren’s stationery designs on her website!
And, Southern Weddings just released V4 of their print magazine and I hear it’s amazing. I haven’t been able to snag a copy in Dallas yet (I checked a Tom Thumb and a Barnes & Noble, no luck), and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Southern Weddings was one of the first wedding magazines I purchased after getting engaged. I have V1-V3! See if you can find me on this throwback post from 2008!
If you’re in Dallas and you found a copy of V4 of Southern Weddings, let me know where you found it in the comments!
