I really like this thoughtful detail from Cristin and Adam Siegel’s Chicago nuptials. Cristin tied handmade name tags around the tops of water-filled glass Ball mason jars to hold the bridal party’s bouquets during the reception. And aren’t the bridesmaid bouquets that feature orchids and fiddlehead ferns lovely?
- Thick paper in two colors (Cristin used solid and patterned natural shades for her fall nuptials)
- Rub on letters
- Hole punch
- Glue stick or rubber cement
- Ball mason jars
- Pre-cut paper flowers (optional)
You should be able to find the supplies in the Joann.com scrapbooking section. Cut your paper into a tag shape. Cut narrow rectangles and glue them about 1/4th inch from the end. Position the rub-on letters and follow the directions to transfer them one-by-one onto the tags. Optionally add pre-made paper flowers.
Punch a large hole into the top of the tag, slip the ribbon through the hole, and wrap and tie the ribbon around the top of the jar.

Hey Kathy! Love this post! I was going to pin the pic of the mason jars, but I wondered if I should link to the "original" post... I couldn't make the "Adam and Cristin" link below work. Thanks for any info!! :)

Hi Kelly, that link was their wedding website. Cristin and Adam let me post the mason jars here, so it's all good to link here. Enjoy!

Hello, I absolutely love this idea of using mason jars with name tags to hold the bridal party bouquets! It's both functional and decorative! I hope it's okay, I just couldn't resist featuring them in my mason jar crafts round-up. You can see it here:
Thank you so much for sharing!
