Pink Jam Jar Mugs

jam jar mugs

The Kilner range at Wares of Knutsford now includes blue, green and pink jam jar mugs. A fashionable twist on a traditional shape, the handled jars in coloured glass lend an interesting and creative look to anything from cocktails to iced tea or even plain old water – make sure you also supply a colourful straw to drink through!

Buying pink jam jar mugs

The 500ml capacity mugs are sold in packs of three, six or 12 and are hand wash only. Lid are not supplied but as a traditional Kilner jar, you can use your standard flower lids on the mugs too. Remember that Wares of Knutsford uses a flat delivery charge so you can order as much as you like without worrying about the cost of postage and packing.

Wholesale prices are available to business customers, so don’t hesitate to contact us for details.

Decorating with pink jam jar mugs

The new Kilner pink jar mugs are almost too pretty to drink out of, so why not use them for decorating! Exploit the pastel theme by using them to store striped candy canes for Christmas, sticks of rock after summer holidays or lollipops at any time of year. Using such as pretty container is also a great way to disguise the mundanity of some contents – wooden skewers, pencils, make up brushes or even kitchen implements will look strangely elegant and sculptural when packed into the blue, green and pink jar mugs, while remaining easy access for everyday use.

Christmassy pink jam jar mugs

Remember that you don’t have to go with the traditional red, green and gold at Christmas. Icy pastel pink with white and silver looks very modern and fresh when used to decorate the house and table for the festive season. It’s a look that needs confidence and commitment to carry it off so stick to the theme with matching wrapping paper, cards and cake decorations. When it comes to table decorations, you can use your pink jar mugs as ornaments. Put a tea light inside then use pale pink, silver or white ribbon to tie some tiny baubles around the neck in the same colour theme – silver, white and different shades of pink. Place these along the table to cast a warm and flattering glow at dinnertime. Similarly, line the inside of the jar with a small string of tiny, battery operated fairy lights and place on windowsills or in dull corners.

Jam Jar Beer Mugs

Wares of Knutsford is very proud of the variety of jars and bottles in our range, but even by our standards the jam jar mugs are super funky. There are four options in the range, in a choice of pack sizes and priced from £10.50.

The jam jar mugs range

Three drinking jars by Mason make up the main part of the selection. Each holds 450ml and comes in heavy gauge glass. You can buy these without a lid or with a choice of red and white gingham or two part gold lids. The lids don’t come with a hole for straws but the gold lidded version has a removable centre disc for this purpose. The jars can’t be used for preserving or hot drinks but are ideal for occasions where you want to prepare your drinks in advance at outdoor parties or other summer events. They are a great way to present cocktails at a casual event and are a modern way to serve a rather traditional punch, brimming with ice cubes and chunks of fresh fruit. Simply pre-fill and have them ready to hand to guests upon arrival.

The fourth member of the range is a 500ml Kilner jar with a handle and an embossed logo. This slightly larger jar fits in with your other Kilner storage jars on the shelf and is a chunkier option ideal for beer or cider.

Jam jar mugs for beer

Beer, whether served in cans or the classic pint mug, suffers from a rather undeserved downmarket reputation. However there is a modern trend for more exclusive and sophisticated craft brews, made using ingredients such as champagne yeast, for example. If you can track them down, try some Chapel Down’s Curious Brew, Sharp’s Connoisseurs Choice Quadrupel, Oldershaw’s Posh Blonde or you could try brewing your own!

To showcase the quality of these brews and get away from the horrible ‘lager lout’ image, try serving them in one of our jam jar mugs. Let’s face it, beer served in a cocktail glass is just wrong, even at the smartest event, but sometimes on a hot day nothing quite hits the spot like an ice cold lager.

Remember when ordering from Wares of Knutford that our delivery charge is the same no matter how much you order, and our pack sizes work on an ‘economies of scale’ basis, so the more you order the cheaper they get!
