Can you believe that this year marks Ball's 135th anniversary? When I think about Ball, it reminds me of my childhood. I remember seeing my grandmother use Ball Jars to store her preserves and green beans or just using them to drink sweet tea out of (among other beverages). They were a staple in my family. I still to this day have plenty of Ball Jars in my home that I use in a variety of ways. Ball Jars are for more than just canning. There are so many creative ways that you can use their jars, especially for organization!
Using Ball For Back To School
Being organized for back to school can save you a lot of stress and time. I love using Ball jars to store various school supplies including pencils, glue sticks, scissors, colored pencils, and the list goes on. You can use Ball jars no matter what age your children are, even for going back to college. You can use Ball jars to to keep your beauty items organized. Put a few makeup brushes in one jar and some cotton balls/squares in another or any other beauty product. Not only will you be able to locate your items more easily, but you will also look trendy, especially with the Aqua Vintage Jars.
Since Ball is celebrating 135 years, they relaunched their Aqua Vintage Jars. These collector's edition jars share the vintage design, color, and logo with Ball Jars originally produced from 1910-1923. The aqua color easily stands out and makes finding school supplies easier. The aqua color is also calming and relaxing.
Other Ways To Use Ball Jars
Ball Jars are excellent center pieces for weddings, bridal, and baby showers. All you have to do is fill the jars with fresh flowers or candy. Better yet, you can use put flatware utensils such as your knives, forks, and spoons in the jars, so when it is time to eat, your guests can easily just grab what they need.
Usually around Christmas time is when you see start seeing Ball Jars filled with all types of goodies. My boss always gives us reindeer food (trail mix) in Ball Jars. Others fill their jars with cookie mixes, make ahead mixes, or other food ingredients. They make the perfect homemade gift!
