Vintage Blue Bottle Flower Arrangement


Happy Monday, y'all!

I hope you all had great weekends. We spent ours in Richmond celebrating the wedding of two good friends of ours. It was absolutely beautiful and such a treat to spend time with so many people we love and don't get to see nearly as often as we'd like. As a bonus, the weather was perfect for the wedding; I think that the weather finally got the memo that it was time to be spring around here. Flowers are starting to bloom everywhere and I'm seeing hints of green leaves start to appear on the trees. Hooray!

Last week while I was still waiting for those flowers to pop up outside, and prepping our apartment for the spring home tour that's happening this week (I'm sharing mine on Thursday!), I decided to have a little fun with flower arranging. I got creative with some tulips I bought from Trader Joe's and I thought it might be fun to share it with y'all.  I'm definitely not a flower arranging pro, but this turned out so cute I couldn't not share. I apologize in advance for the total photo overload. ;)


I have a collection of old blue bottles I inherited from my grandmother that I love to put out in the spring and summer. I acquired a few more from my aunt recently as well, so I've got quite a number now. They're all different shapes and sizes, but since they're in the same color family they go together really nicely as a group. They find a new place in our home every year and this year I put them up on top of our antique jelly cupboard that I like to decorate seasonally. As it turns out, they make great little vases for tulips. I think I can confidently say that spring has officially arrived in our house now!



I stuck one, two or three tulip stems in each of the bottles and played around with their arrangement on both a funky wooden tray and a white ceramic platter. actually really loved both, but I think the white one looks better on top of the jelly cupboard - wood on wood is a little too much. What do you think?



This kind of arrangement would be lovely as a centerpiece on a table as well. Easter brunch anyone? Tulips are so effortlessly elegant.

I hope you enjoyed my little flower arranging diversion today! Those blue bottles are a tiny little preview into my spring home tour that I'll be sharing later this week (Thursday). In case you missed Friday's lovely links post, I made the announcement that I'm part of a tour hosted by Thrifty and Chic with 13 other bloggers this week. It starts today! I'd love for you to stop by and say hello to these lovely bloggers participating in the tour:
