Do you ever get tired of using your same boring vases? I know that I do! If you are like me, you have a stack of vases from floral arrangements that were delivered. We really racked them up when our son was born! Even with all of those options, sometimes I struggle with finding something that isn’t too formal, but isn’t a down-home mason jar (both of which I use and love for the proper occasion). There are times and decors that just need something special. There are other times when you are making an arrangement to take to a friend and you don’t want to have to ask for the container back.
I found this cute container with a “5” on it for my fifth wedding anniversary, which we used to display the flowers that we featured in all of our photos for the day. I simply placed a plastic drinking cup down inside this unique wooden box,filled it with water and voila—an instant update to my typical vase. Plus, it was a cute container to display in my bookshelf once the flowers were gone.
Dig into your cupboards, your garage, stop by a local craft store or hit up a garage sale. You’ll be amazed by the options!
Some of my other favorite “unusual vases” and affordable options:
- shot glasses as bud vases
- teapots. This sweet arrangement was for a baby shower for my cousin.
- ceramic pitchers
- wine bottles
- old fashioned parfait glasses. i got an adorable set while garage sale-ing.
- empty perfume bottles
The possibilities are truly endless. Let your creativity shine!
