Jars Twine and Carnations

I love the idea of little jars with single flower stems in them so have been madly saving my mustard and olive jars until I have no more room left in my little kitchen cupboards!

Armed with my jars a roll of twine and a $5 bunch of mixed pink carnations

I tied the twine around the jars to add a bit of character

Popped a few carnations into each jar

Then arranged them along a table runner

They made a perfect tablescape for a family bbq which I kicked off with oysters and bubbly!
