Planting in canning jars and other large glass vessels is such a fun idea. I have seen these a few places now and I love the idea. My bamboo is planted in a canning jar. I love the idea of giving succulents in canning jars as gifts.
I equally love the idea of using larger glass jars to showcase pine trees, like this one that we saw at a restaurant in New Mexico. They really would have to be for a party or a few weeks of decoration because of the lack of drainage. But they really are charming. I can also envision miniature rose bushes in large glass jars lining a table. The ideas are endless.
My Easter table this year will seat ten. Bright colored oil cloth of reds and blues and my new Fiesta ware will be used at each place. I am making a feast of enchiladas, chili rellenos, beans, rice, guacamole, and icy margaritas. Perhaps a bit untraditional for Easter dinner but shaking things up is my specialty. Succulents or miniature cacti in canning jars may very well complete the décor.
So grab those wide mouth jars and plant away! Gifts and entertaining just got more creative and fun.
