I’m anxious to get married so I can decorate with Ball jars. I want teal ones!

Wait do you have news?!

3 kate December 19, 2011 at 11:56 am

You have to get married to decorate with jars?
I was not aware of this law.

4 Kelly @ Foodie Fiasco December 19, 2011 at 12:21 pm

It could be a law… Allie what do you think? ;)

Reply

5 Allie@LiveLaughEat December 19, 2011 at 1:06 pm

Haha no I just want to decorate my reception tables with jars…if I ever get married.

Reply

6 Allie@LiveLaughEat December 19, 2011 at 1:04 pm

Ha! That would be a negative.

Oh, at the wedding…makes since now!

Love the jars!!! They are all beautiful.

Especially the teal, I love that color!! :-)

I don’t know how you eat out of jars – even with a long spoon. It’s what the bowl was invented for! :) But I do love that color teal.

11 KathEats December 19, 2011 at 4:40 pm

It keeps the food from falling out

Reply

12 Jen December 19, 2011 at 6:56 pm

Oh, it wasn’t a negative comment! I think the jars are cute and good if you like them.

Although, I don’t really get your response …millions of people eat out of bowls everyday too and the food doesn’t fall out either…:)

13 KathEats December 19, 2011 at 7:53 pm

I’m just sayin’ it’s more fun to eat when you have to dig down the sides :)

14 Cat @Breakfast to Bed December 19, 2011 at 9:02 am

I love turquoise. Turquoise and green are my favorite colors ever. This is gorgeous.

Reply

15 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning December 19, 2011 at 9:03 am

What lovely color coordination- it’s so nice that something as inexpensive as a few Ball jars can add a perfect (delicate) decorative touch.
Hope you guys survive this week at the bakery! :)

16 Ellie@fitforthesoul December 19, 2011 at 12:24 pm

I agree~it’s little things like that that bright up a room! I want to find these somewhere too.

Reply

17 Molly @ RDexposed December 19, 2011 at 9:05 am

I made spiced nuts last night and packaged them into small jars for Chirstmas gifts. It’s tacky to ask for the jars back…right? They’re just so darn cute!

Reply

18 HRCK December 19, 2011 at 9:10 am

Does it mean I’m a little too materialistic if I would have called that color Tiffany blue? :) Not that I have anything from there…

Reply

19 KathEats December 19, 2011 at 4:40 pm

Haha not at all

Beautiful! I have serious porch envy.

25 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat December 19, 2011 at 9:33 am

I looove teal! My roommate and I have a rule that when we go on shopping trips, neither of us is allowed to buy teal because we already own soooo much. I’m starting to think I need to enforce that rule on dark purple now too… it’s dominating my closet!

Reply

26 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen December 19, 2011 at 9:34 am

I love that color combination. Now I want to redecorate my entire house with ball jars and pretty colors ;)

Reply

27 Amanda December 19, 2011 at 9:37 am

I love that color. :) Hope you have a happy Monday!

28 Ida December 19, 2011 at 9:46 am

Hey Kath! Love the teal ball jars. You know what would amp it up a notch?????????? Place a tray that coordinates with the surroundings under the jars to contain them. Could be wood, wicker anything you love. You have a great eye. Play with it, I think you’ll see what I mean. Have an awesome day.

Reply

29 Leah December 19, 2011 at 4:34 pm

Thats a nice suggestion, I can visualize that.

Reply

30 KathEats December 19, 2011 at 4:42 pm

A tray would be nice. I don’t have one, but I can look around

Reply

31 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga December 19, 2011 at 9:47 am

Teal, aqua, Tiffany Blue…I love these colors. So soothing!

And glass jars and vases.

And….sunflower seed butter. That’s soothing too :)

32 Ida December 19, 2011 at 9:47 am

maybe something white and rustic

34 Susan H. @ the food allergy chronicles December 19, 2011 at 9:51 am

Love your play of colour with teal…the light really picks up the colour and makes it shine…they are like glowing orbs! Glass jar with handle…love the portability factor…and the size!

Reply

35 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio December 19, 2011 at 9:53 am

The teal is great! I’ve always loved teal and brown.

Reply

36 Cait's Plate December 19, 2011 at 9:58 am

Oooh toasted marshmallow tea!? That sounds incredible!

I’m definitely loving the jars as well. I love the whole porch really!

And I honestly cannot look at your blog when you use Cville Cluster because it makes me SO jealous!!! Haha.

37 KathEats December 19, 2011 at 4:42 pm

We’re hoping to have more available soon!!

I love mason jars! I’m actually headed out find some today to put cookie mixes in as gifts!

40 Sarah (I Dream of Beets) December 19, 2011 at 10:15 am

Such beautiful colors! We’ve got a jar obsession in our house – we use them for e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.
Where’d you find such interesting colors?

Reply

41 KathEats December 19, 2011 at 4:42 pm

They can be found in antique stores!

Reply

42 Mattie December 19, 2011 at 10:31 am

I love teal…it makes me smile! :)
Where do you find all these delicious sounding teas? What brand do you drink?

43 KathEats December 19, 2011 at 4:43 pm

Adagio.com!

44 Megan December 19, 2011 at 10:36 am

I have a pretty impressive collection of teal ball jars- all from my grandmother and I love, love, love them! Every time I see them I remember all of the good times I spent with her. You and I have a very similar love for all things vintage and nostalgic! Marry Christmas!

Reply

45 Lena @Fit on the Rocks December 19, 2011 at 10:37 am

I love how that teal color pops against the dark wood and white walls. So pretty!

Reply

46 Lindsay @ Running the Windy City December 19, 2011 at 10:39 am

Marshmallow tea? That sounds delicious! Where can I find that?

Reply

47 KathEats December 19, 2011 at 4:43 pm

Adagio.com – I’ve gotten a ton of their teas. Honestly though, the toasted marsh. isn’t my favorite. It’s more on the campfire side of the spectrum and could use more vanilla (so I often blend it with vanilla)

So beautiful and something lovely like that makes tea time just a little more special!

Aw these pictures make me long for summer :)

52 Sarah December 19, 2011 at 11:24 am

I love the pop of color the jars add. They remind me of old-time telephone pole covers, my grandpa worked for AT&T and various other telephone companies all his life and had a pretty intense collection of the old conductors from the tops of telephone/electric poles, they’re so pretty and unique!

I agree- the teal is so pretty!

Suddenly aware all my mugs are boring white. Bah.

56 Stephanie @ LiveCookLove December 19, 2011 at 12:21 pm

You might have mentioned it before, but where did you get those teal colored ones? One of my best friends is getting married next year and this weekend we tried some different things to try and “dye” ball jars that same color blue! They are so pretty! I’m sure she would love to know how or where to get them :)

57 KathEats December 19, 2011 at 4:44 pm

My grandmother! But I’ve seen them in antique stores

Teal is my favourite colour, those jars are beautiful, and so is the napkin and so is the mug. Why is it that food tastes better if it is served beautifully.
