Sweet 1st Birthday Centerpieces

on September 28, 2014

I am a huge fan of reusing and repurposing things as much as possible. There are so many everyday items that can be put to good use instead of thrown away or recycled.

For my daughter’s first birthday party, I needed a low-cost table centerpiece. What better thing to use than all those baby food jars we were going through!

This was a very simple centerpiece to make and only took a couple weeks of planning ahead to gather enough empty jars and to order the candy used to fill them.


I cut strips of solid and patterned papers in two different widths using coordinating pinks, purples, yellows, blues and greens to match the party theme (more on that later!). Then I used double-sided tape to wrap the paper strips around the jar.

Colorful lollipops completed the look and made for sweet, tasty centerpieces at the party. The best part: the jars made great party favors for guests to take home to enjoy later!
