TRENDING: Mason Jars! Throwing a Country Rustic BRIDAL SHOWER on a BUDGET!

It's no secret... MASON JARS are trending pretty hardcore this season, the BONUS is they are also VERY CHEAP! They make great DIY centerpieces, are perfect for favours and can add a trendy, country rustic feel to any event. Let me show you a couple unique ways to turn a plain, cookie cutter bridal shower into a hip, on trend event on a budget.

1. Mason Jar Centerpieces: My favourite, most cost effective centerpiece is a Large Mason Jar, painted a soft colour with a bundle of baby's breath on top. This requires some DIY work; Buy Large Jars from Michaels for $3 (download the app if you don't already have it, it saves you BIG TIME every time with 40% off coupons), get some acrylic paint from the dollar store and a large paint brush, paint the outside and flip upside down to dry.

NOT A DIY KINDA GIRL? Simply leave mason jars plain, tie some burlap twine around the top of the jar, fill with water and toss a dollar store floating candle inside. VOILA
2. Mason Jar Favours: These are an easy DIY favour that is sure to please guests and look great. My favourite and least expensive Mason Jar Favour is the DIY BODY SCRUB in mini mason jars (each jar works out to approximately .66 cents including tax!!!) Many DIY Body Scrub Recipes are very inexpensive to make with basic natural ingredients you could find around the house i.e. baby oil, kosher, epson or sea salt, an orange peel blended and lemon juice- there you have it, a citrus body scrub! haha Take a look at Body Scrub Recipes Here.

 Check Out Thank You Tags Here!  Paint the top of the mason jar lid with chalkboard paint, write "From (Bride's Name) Shower to Yours", attach an affordable Thank You tag like the one shown with twine and you have adorable, AFFORDABLE mini mason jar favours your guests will not only LOVE, but will use!!

3. Custom Country Rustic Themed Decor: Unique Touches to Make Your Shower STAND OUT from the Others!
Customized Water Bottle Labels, Custom Welcome Sign and Banner!
