Make charming drink jars for a backyard picnic

Simple pleasures: Fill up these mason jar sippers with your favourite juice or summer cocktail

Jar filled with lemonade with striped straw

It’s backyard picnic time! Relive childhood memories with these charming drink jars that look as good on a chic brunch table as they would at an old-school lemonade stand. We found this Mason jar sipper at Acme Party Box Company, but you can make your own by using a thick nail to punch through the lid, sanding down sharp edges and adding an old-fashioned straw. Fill with your favourite juice—or our Fresh strawberry lemonade — and garnish with an oversized slice of citrus. (It’s also delicious spiked with vodka.) 25¢ sign optional.
