I have a thing for interesting jars but I also have a thing for jars that have multiple uses!  My latest love in jars is the fabulous Ball Mason Jar – yes I love the antique vintage blue ones but this one is brand new and is so versatile.

It is the perfect size for a cake in a jar – a great way to serve your guests at a party or even as a take home gift – change the colour of the patterned paper in the lid and you can match the theme of your event.  Here I have layered a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting to go with the festive red dots and twine used as decoration.  Attach a spoon and an instant dessert is ready.

When you have finished your cake you can then use your jar as a fabulous way to serve your next drink.  
Just right with a delicious ice cold summer punch and they look
cute with these little lids that are a perfect fit for a stripey straw.
Eating cake and drinking punch just keeps getting more enjoyable.
These great jars (as well as all the other goodies you see here) can now be found in the Sweet Style store here.

Thank you to Jordan from Polkadot Prints for sharing this post on her blog earlier this week.
