Flower Bouquets

Hello everyone! Thank you for your sweet comments about my tussie mussies! I had plenty of flowers leftover and for some reason I don't have a lot of vases, so I had fun with some different arrangements.
A mason jar seemed like a good place for the daisies. I also added a little ribbon around the jar.
Here they are on my patio table.

I also had them in my kitchen for a little while.

A blue pitcher for yellow daisies.

Next, I got out a silver dish.

Place a doily in it...

along with some leaves from my garden.

I placed a candle in the middle.

Then set roses all around it.


Some of you may remember the luncheon sets I got at a yard sale last weekend. As you can see, they aren't just for tea!

A cup of roses, anyone? :0)

And last but not least, the remaining roses went into a teapot.


Thank you for looking at my flower arrangements! What are some unique containers you've used for flowers?

You really did have fun! They all look great! I love mason jars filled with flowers. That is actually how all of the tables at our wedding were decorated. Mason jars filled with blue and purple flowers that were growing on the property.

I really love the flowers in the tea pot and tea cup. They look so beautiful.

Everything looks so lovely.

I have a little blue and white pitcher that looks so lovely with my pink roses...but no roses yet - I hope they are blooming soon!

So pretty...I have two pink (yes pink!) vintage milk jars that I use for my flowers.
Thank you for sharing your ideas, the tussie mussies are beautiful. I just love saying tussie mussie!

Well when it comes to little flowers like Johnny Jump Ups, I would use a clear or etched shot glass from the thrift store. They are the perfect size to hold such little flowers.

All good ideas! They look great!

We really were on the same wavelength today!

Love the way you repurpose things. Really makes me open my eyes to things in my house. Once I get a few flowers in my garden I will try my hand at some serious flower arranging.

God bless.

Very cute! I picked wild flowers once and put them in a stewed tomato can. They looked really cute.

I have used Mason Jars alot. I really like the look of it. Something southern about it.

I love your creative flower containers. Hmm, I've used a cocktail sauce bottle for wildflowers from my garden. I liked the shape so I removed the label and tied a piece of jute twine into a bow around the neck and then knotted the streamers. It was very sweet. In fact, I still use it. Sometimes when I get flowers where the head has broken off of the stem, I like to float it in a little bowl. This works especially well with flowers that are wide and flat like gerbera daisies.
