Originally created to hold pharmaceuticals, apothecary jars are excellent vessels to hold décor. These are, hands down, one my FAVORITE pieces to decorate with.
When buying apothecary jars for your household remember to make sure they all vary slightly by their look, you want them to have their own character. If you plan on displaying them together, I recommend buying three distinct sizes.
You can buy apothecary jars everywhere, Pottery Barn, Macy’s, TJ MAXX, Marshalls and even Ross. All prices vary, so they can be affordable on any budget. To be honest, I purchased some of my favorite ones at TJ Maxx.
Use your imagination when decorating with apothecary jars and go with what’s in season. Since we are in the Fall Season, I like using small pinecones, small ears of corn, gourds & pumpkins, wheat, bright fall leaves or corn kernels in mine. I think the mixture of textures (glass jar & nature) is wonderful!
Don’t feel like you have to go and buy new stuff, where we live is a perfect place to find fillers, especially for Fall. Go take a walk and collect brilliant red leaves, decorative twigs or pinecones. Be creative when decorating and most importantly, HAVE FUN!
