For events such as weddings, showers or birthdays, serve your beverages in mason jars. Simply add a little slice of lime or lemon and a cute straw!
Serving pre-made cocktails is another cute function of a mason jar. If you're hosting an event and are not planning on hiring a bartender, this is a quick and cheap alternative. Grab and go! :)
Making a layered dip? Skip the same old 8 x 8 casserole dish and use a mason jar! These are especially ideal for larger gatherings. Dips at a small, family function are one thing. I'm not on my high alerts checking to see if my nephew has double dipped. Watching a stranger do it, on the other hand, gross... None for me, thanks!
If you're not into mixing foods- this one may not be for you. Chili and cornbread in a jar! Perfect for a Summer BBQ. My Dad makes KILLER chili. Really craving this at the moment... :D
Mason jars can also serve as a quick and easy centerpiece. Throw in a few flowers and wrap a pretty bow around the middle of your jar. Easy Peasy :)
My best friend's Mom actually inspired me to finally buy some of my own! After watching her whip them out for 3 different occasions- all used differently- I was like dang, I think it's time to invest! She even has Redneck Wine glasses. TOO cute.
