Photographer: Amarette Arnold,
One of the add visual interest to a centerpiece is to use something different
than the traditional clear vase. For the non-crafty, keep the flowers simple so
you do not have to worry about arranging them--put them into the container,
fluff a bit, and you are done.
We made these three, top to bottom, with a square fuscia container from
Goodwill, plus butterflies similar to
these butterfly sticks; an empty wine bottle; and
white bud vases of different sizes and shapes. The flowers in each are
artificial bunches, which I used because (a) they do not die and (b) I can have
more than one kind of flower without having to arrange them.
Here are some other ideas, along with links to a variety of
sizes and choices from our partners (you won't have to leave
this website to see them):
Bud vases. There are personalized, metal, cylinders, and
Apothecary jars. These were originally made to store
various medicines and herbs, but are now used as display
containers. Fill them with petals, flowers, sea shells, or
other attractive material.
Interestingly shaped glassware such as brandy snifters,
hurricane vases, or fluted glass.
Enjoy! ~Bobette Kyle
