How to make glass go the extra mile with your flower arrangements using common glass containers around your home.
We generally have a lot of blooms most of the year around Duke Manor Farm. I love to cut them and bring them in the house to enjoy. Currently it’s my winter Camellias. The camellias go gang buster from January to March with their magnificent show of pretty pink flowers. The bushes sit outside my daughters window. I planted them years ago for her to enjoy….and for me to cut and bring in the house.
Today I am joining my Thrifty Style group, to inspire you with an idea or two, on how to how to make glass go the extra mile with your flower arrangements. You can find the links to more thrifty style ideas later on in this post.
How to make glass go the extra mile with your flower arrangements
I no longer own any standard glass vases that you typically get with a floral arrangement from the florist. I use to have more of those vases then I cared to count. Before you know it, I had this enormous collection of blah basic vases. Why? I had plenty of everyday glass items around the house that could also hold pretty flowers. Besides, who would have thought a Patron tequila bottle with pink flowers would look so amazing next to an old spice jar on the mantel. There is another reason Patron is a little pricey, look at that amazing bottle! I have a few smaller Patron bottles and they are some of my favorite vases to use with my flowers.
And of course a tall Collins glass, and milk bottle on the other side look equally as pretty.
Here’s a few other ideas on how to use glass that was intended for other purposes that would be perfect for your flower arrangements.
And it also gives me a reason to share a simple, yet romantic look for Valentines Day. A pickle jar, mixed with a few jelly jars, camellias and felt hearts. An unlikely combination…..but it sure does work.
I hope some of my ideas on how to make glass go the extra mile with your flower arrangements such as jelly jars, milk bottles, and vintage medicine bottles will inspire you to consider using other glass items for your next arrangement.
How are you using your old pickle and jelly jars around your home?
