Quick and Easy Party Decorating Idea

When it comes to party and holiday decor, I like to keep things simple and easy! I use this idea year round when I want to add some quick and festive flair for any event. 

We used Mason jars last winter to line our front walk way for holiday guests, we used them in the summer at my daughter’s wedding reception, and we bring them out any time we have people over for an evening party! 

All year round I’ve used Epsom salts to simulate snow or sand. If you want to get really creative, you could fill the jars with candy corn, coffee beans, shells, jelly beans, sand, marbles, cranberries ... and change candle colors to coordinate with your event! 

The options are endless! 

I keep a dozen mason jars on hand in the garage so they are easy to pull out at a moment’s notice. I always have them ready with Epsom salts and white candles. I cannot tell you how many times I have pulled those candles out a half hour before a party! Five minutes later, my front porch looks festive and ready to greet guests. 

Decorating for a party doesn’t get much easier than that!
