B is for bunches and bottles of flowers!

This is the time of year when blooms are popping out everywhere....so many that you must cut a few and bring them inside! And so many that you must cut a few to share with friends!
It is for this reason, that I save bottles of all shapes and sizes. Frappuccino bottles, salad dressing bottles, and coca-cola bottles.  I collect them in a kitchen cabinet and when the time is right...and I am ready, I pull a few out and fill them with these!
  
 
 
Everyone loves to get flowers, and when they are in a fun bottle like this, they dont feel like they have to return the vase. And they really do look cute!

The other day I found the most fabulous label downloads at Just Something I Made. Wouldn't it be fun to add your own special labels to the salad dressing bottles! You really must check it out here!

Enjoy the day!

  1. I do the same thing!!! I usually start houseplants in them too....but I just cut some lilacs from the tree and put them in a Starbuck's bottle! They are lovely! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I prefer using something simple, too. This is such a good idea. I especially like the Starbuck's bottle - great use!

  5. Great idea! I'm poaching it. Those labels are awesome. I think The Girl would love to stick these to things and color on them if I print them on label paper. Excellent!

  7. Just lovely. We've had so much rain I don't think we'll ever get any flowers.

  8. Awesome idea! My flowers all get eaten by the deer and elk, but if any survive, I'm going to put them in a Starbucks bottle!

  10. That is fun and a great way to deliver flowers for sure. I'm always wondering if I'm suppose to return the vase :0)

  11. Lovely idea :)

    I've never seen a frappuccino bottle before. I don't think you can buy it like that over here. It's certainly an original way of giving flowers without having to worry about the vase.

  15. Gorgeous. I also save tin cans. Some of the labels are really happy and cute and then I leave them on. If hey're kind of boring, I soak the label off, tie raffia around them and fill with flowers, too. Love the coke bottles, though. I'm going to remember that idea!

    Thanks for the sweet stop today.

    A+

  18. I LOVE this idea so much! Your flowers look beautiful too. I tend to save bottles a lot, just because I love the way they look. I am going to use your idea! :)
