The One Thing I Can’t Live Without When It Comes to Decorating!

August 29, 2019 Events, Holidays, Home Decor, Party

One of my most commonly asked questions is: “When it comes to decorating, what is something you MUST have, or couldn’t live without?”



Glass jars have been my go-to decorating item for YEARS. You can use them in any season, whether holiday or non-holiday! And when I say I would never want to be caught without them… I mean it!

I’m in the process of compiling the final details for my Halloween 2019 Reveal, and during my brainstorming processes I pulled out my glass jars and began “playing” with centerpiece ideas for our kitchen island!!

How cute is this?!

It’s totally inspiring me and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the kitchen ends up turning out!

When it comes to using jars to decorate, nothing is off limits! You can put candy, candles, mini accessories (I mean how cute are these spider macaroons?!) or whatever will fit through the opening! 🙂 I always say… just start playing with items and see if you like how it looks!

With that said, candy is always my go-to! I buy it in bulk (we try not to eat a lot of candy so I buy things my family doesn’t really like!) and then save it to re-use throughout the holidays! I always warn people who come through our home and lift a lid off a jar to get a sweeet……. “you might not want to eat that; it may look great, but it might be a little stale!” Giggle 🙂

HERE are the glass jars you see in my Halloween brainstorm. I’ve also linked some additional options, as well as some bulk halloween candy and other accessories you might want to try if you decide to create a fun, easy display using glass jars! I’ve found that eBay is one of the most affordable places to find glass jars and a really easy place to find lots of bulk candy options!

I thought it would also be fun to show you some other ways I’ve used glass jars to decorate throughout the past couple of years as well! Hopefully some of these examples get your creative juices flowing! : )

As you can see, the possibilities are endless! Whether you’re decorating for a specific holiday, a shower, an event, etc. glass jars are always a simple, and beautiful way to make a statement!

I always love to check eBay for fun and unique pieces you can’t typically find in a standard storefront…. and they have glass jars GALORE…. at affordable prices!!!
