A week or so ago while I was out running errands, I picked up two small bunches of flowers to take home and brighten up what was a rainy afternoon. I had every intention of just trimming them and putting them in the usual go-to vase, sitting them on the trunk in our living room, and enjoying how pretty they'd look. But, when I got home with them, I started to think that the usual vase would take away or even over shadow the dainty little flowers, I then remembered the set of milk bottles my little brother had given me the year before for my birthday.
We've used the bottles countless times before for drinks - they are perfect for serving milk with cookies. In fact, they sit out on our kitchen counter because we reach for them that often, but I'd never before thought to put flowers in them. Silly really, seeing as you can present flowers in almost anything.
I filled each bottle with water, and added a little of the food that comes with most bouquets, to each of them. I started trimming all the stems to size and playing about with the arrangement, and when I'd finished I was so pleased with how it looked. I'm definitely going to start being more creative when it comes to flower arranging in the future -the options are endless if you think about it!
