Mason Jars are great to have on hand. They make great inexpensive vases for centrepieces. Flowers from the supermarket are also fairly inexpensive. Just get some bouquets split them up and place a few stems in each mason jar and you have an instant centerpiece. And if you like, tie ribbon or raffia around the neck for an extra touch. These centerpieces work well for many parties. We have used them for baby and bridal showers, retirement party, in memory of party and more. You can say that we have definitely gotten our money's worth from our Mason Jars. About 10 bucks for a case of 12 and when you are done just clean and dry and place back in the cardboard case to store for next time.
