An Awesome Decoration Freebie!

So I keep reading about all these brides that are finding great bargains, either online or at store like Goodwill and the Salvation Army. Well I want some of those deals darn it!

Well I found something even better....FREE stuff!

Check it out. I work in a bakery and we use apple sauce in our best-selling vegan cookie. I knew I wanted to attempt to incorporate jars into our decor some way or another. I was planning on just saving them and having friends save them once we emptied jars of pasta, jalapenos, etc. But then the other day I noticed that we use 5 jars of apple sauce for each batch of cookies at work. PERFECT! I asked the cookie makers at work to save the jars for me and now I've got 20. It only took a week to save that many and I've got them saving at least another weeks worth.

So what am I planning on doing with these wonderful jars you ask? Well I'm not exactly sure but check out these pics of some of my inspiration ideas.

So I'm thinking I might definitely want to use them as aisle decorations and may even incorporate them into my centerpieces.

Have ya'll found bargains or free things that you've been able to incorporate into you decorations or wedding in general?


  1. ohhhh I can't wait to see what you come up with! I love the inspiration pics...I def think whatever route you go can't be wrong.

  2. Thanks! I'm working on a couple things today so hopefully I can decide on something soon!

  3. is another great resource for free stuff! I haven't gotten anything wedding related from it yet, but I've used lots of things from there for craft projects and teaching.

  4. Thanks JD. I'm gonna have to check that site out. I've never heard of it before!
