Alternative Ways To Display Your Beautiful Blooms
If you’re ever in the delightful position of being given more than one bouquet, you may need another container for your vibrant blooms, or perhaps you like the idea of a more creative and bohemian appearance for your display? We’re here to help with some of our favourite options.
Usually used for storing food, mason jars are very ‘on trend’ these days. You could use the really tall ones for your long-stemmed flowers, but even the smaller ones can be utilised with a bit of careful trimming. They’re ideal for achieving an authentic and nostalgic look.
Before putting your used wine bottles in the recycling bin, why not upcycle a few of the more attractive ones to display your long-stemmed blossoms as a table centrepiece? Your dining room will be looking like a traditional Italian restaurant before you know it!
Just open your cupboards and you’ll be amazed at how many potential vases there are in there. Use the pottery or glass ones to create a classic look, or if you have any metal jugs, this could bring a gorgeous rustic country-cottage feel.
Whilst you’ll need to cut the stems quite short, the wide opening of a teapot could create a really beautiful display, with big open flowers to producing an adorable vintage look. Plain teapots look great with different colours and types, whereas a cute pattered teapot would look fantastic with white or pastel toned flowers.
Another alternative for shorter stems, like on snowdrops and daffodils, is an upcycled tin can. Soak the tin in lukewarm water and a bit of baking powder for 30 minutes to remove the label and then decorate however you like. How about covering it in wallpaper or wrapping paper to match/complement your room?
