Using Bottles For Flowers...The Power Of Multiples In Display


If you love flowers as I do then you might need to have some more great ways to display them...right? Talking today about using something that is often tossed aside and/or recycled and I'll give you some tips about how to use the common bottle in your home for flowers...


My weekly market flowers that I actually picked up at the florist and all were on sale! They look lovely in the floral bucket that I transformed and talked about on THIS post, but for now I thought that I'd use them to inspire you to perhaps do something different...


I might have a slight problem in that I collect or hoard bottles:~) 

Often I purchase wine or other beverages simply because I love the color or shape of the bottle. Sometimes it's the label that I'm after or the size. Doesn't everyone do that?? 


I've amassed quite a nice bunch and saved many from the certain fate of being melted in recycling for who knows what! They look better with a simple single stem in each bottle. I love collections such as these that seem to tell a story and we have everything above from old French water bottles to wine, a vodka bottle and lemonade. Some are old and some are new, but what they have in common is that they are all similarly sized and all glass...

 

That Prairie brand vodka bottle stands out to me and was a gift from a friend. It was given to me for the bottle...and empty I might add:~)


These bottles are glass water bottles and are smaller than the collection above them. They had labels adhered that I removed with some Goof Off and were from our water delivery company as a bonus at Christmas last year...


Items grouped together make such an impact, even if the item is something everyday mundane in it's use. Keep your eyes wide open for multiple bottles to collect!

My daughter just brought this bottle home and found it in a friend's recycling bin. You could easily add a lacy pattern to a wine bottle like this with a pen made for drawing on glass...


I could not resist the petite Elderflower lemonade bottles on the shelf at Whole Foods last week and although I haven't tried the drink yet you can be sure that the bottles will be saved!


There are so many ways that the common bottle can be decorated such as with a a simple snippet of ribbon. I'm thinking ahead to a project like this for a party and the power of creating and displaying bottles in multiples...
