Apothecary jars are great for home decor, it serves multiple purposes throughout the year. Different usage for different seasons I would say. We bought several of these jars from MiTeeCrafts.com for our wedding and used it as the centerpiece, which was gorgeous. And during the summer time, we fill the jar with fresh fruits. Then the winter time / holiday season, it's a great elegant piece for ornaments. And finally, when you're done with the utility phase of the piece, you can turn it into a fresh terrarium, like the picture above. It's such a functional and beautiful piece of home decor piece.
