Vintage Bottles as Vases

September 29, 2011

20110929-071707.jpg One of my favorite ways to stretch the impact of a simple bunch of flowers that you pick up at the grocery store or corner market is to let each stem take center stage. The other day I picked up a bunch that had 6 dahlia stems in it. It was the lone bundle of white, and the only color that looked fresh, so I opted for freshness over abundance. We have a set of vintage bottles that I found ages ago that would work perfectly holding these long and luscious beauties. I love how vintage bottles are generally quite thick glass, have irregularities, and are just plain pretty to look at whether they have something in them or not.
