If outdoor entertaining is one of your favorite things, we all know there is nothing worse than having the Mozzies crash your party. One thing we have found effective are Mosquito Coils and they have saved the day on many occasions.
Sitting on our verandah with the sprinkler going and the Mozzie Coil wafting through the air, it really is the epitome of Summer.
We have recently found some other ways that we can keep the bugs at bay and so much more stylish too. We are talking about these Bug Repellent Candles that use Citronella. You can light them up and they add a wonderful ambiance to your entertaining.
As you can see by the photo above, there are a number of things you can add to your Jar like Lavender, Rosemary, Thyme, Lemons. You can use much of what is already on hand.
Another way to pretty up your jars is with Flowers. This version from Wiki-How is nothing short of stunning.
They are perfect for special occasions and you could pick flowers, fresh or faux that match your theme.
As you can see, apart from having purpose, they truly are a beautiful and practical centrepiece.
