|My own personalised glass.|
1. Cheap, shabby-chic glasses. - Vintage jar-type glasses seem to be all the range this summer. And they are perfect for something different when having a BBQ and cocktails. Glasses aren't cheap at the best of times but the jar glasses are unreasonably expensive. Plus, by reusing the jars, you are saving the environment...
2. Tealight holder - A tealight in a glass jar burns bright and is easily decorated with a paintbrush and glass paints. Definitely the way to set the mood and light the way when the evening darkness rolls in. Besides, it'll protect the flames a little if there is a breeze.
The story of how these ideas came to light begins with a student working nights travels to work with a empty suitcase and travelled home the next day with a suitcase that was full. "What did she buy?", I hear you ask. The answer; 20 jars of lemon curd. Not that anyone would believe her. Those jars became part of the perfect summer farmer party.
