These firefly-inspired mason jar lights are perfect to accessorize any wedding or wedding reception. It helps bring out nature’s romantic side. Fireflies are known to surround a specific place that is full of life, and that is the exact aura you would want your wedding to have.

When I tried to decorate mason jars for weddings with these pretty lights for my friend’s barn house themed wedding, they reminded me of Disney’s version of The Princess and the Frog. Have you seen this movie? I saw it last weekend with my little girls and I felt inspired with the firefly’s (the frogs were sweet too) undying love to his Evangeline. It made me remember just how lucky I am to end up with my one true love. Let’s go and make that  version for your wedding!
