Any time I plan a party I want to it to come together perfectly. I always use my Party Planning Guide to make sure that everything from food to decor is covered. We recently celebrated Avery’s baptism that centered around pink and burlap so I wanted something natural for my centerpieces. I created Mason Jar Lemon Centerpieces that were simple, yet elegant. The great thing about these centerpieces is that the lemons would work for any season.
Mason Jar Lemon Centerpieces
I had to keep my color scheme consistent so I couldn’t just use plain old lemons. I decided to dye them pink. I used a pink dye that would usually be used on cloth. My toddler assistant helped me with the lemons. We let them sit overnight in the dye and then flipped them the next day and had them sit for another twenty-four hours. For the placement of the lemons within the mason jars, I placed a shot glass in the center and maneuvered the lemon slices along the sides. The thickness of the lemons is crucial because it needs to be thick enough to hold the lemon in place against the mason jar.
I filled the shot glass with a little bit of water and placed white daisies in the center. The daisies were the perfect flower for these centerpieces because of their thin stems that came in bunches. I love how simple these centerpieces came out.
