Here's what one of the apothecary jars looks like out of the box.
Of course, I immediately thought of flowers for a centerpiece and noticed that a regular pint-sized mason jar fit perfectly inside. However, I felt that I needed something pretty to cover the mason jar.
Originally I thought about using acorns, but I didn't have enough real ones to fill 3 jars. Then I purchased one bag of faux acorns, and they looked great, but didn't quite fill the jar, and would end up costing me somewhere in the range of $50 to fill all three.
I settled on this pretty trio of colored popcorn for a little over $3.00/bag. I can't believe that I never heard of colored popcorn. It turns out that there are many different varieties.
Side note: They all end up white, or off-white when popped.
This is just one bag of the popcorn and I think it looks great with my sunflowers, black-eyed Susan blooms, and elderberry leaves.
Decorating with Apothecary Jars
At some point, I read, or heard, that you should always display items in odd numbers. That is why I only used three of the four jars. Don't worry because I have lots of ideas for the fourth jar.
Instead of having to pick or buy flowers for all three, (though, that would be beautiful) I used white pillar candles on either side of the floral centerpiece.
I definitely enjoyed decorating with apothecary jars. The great thing about them is that I can use them over and over again. I think they would make great terrariums, pretty storage containers, and really nice display vehicles too.
Oh, the possibilities.
