design trick ~ use any vessel for flowers

This week’s trip to my favorite place was a success!  They had so much to choose from, but I settled on these blush miniature roses because they looked so healthy.

This faux wooden vessel is actually a candle holder, but I turned it into a vase with one simple trick…a mason jar!

I selected a mason jar that was slightly shorter than the vessel.  Since I have a stash of jars in my garage, normally it’s not a problem for me to have the right size needed.  The jar keeps the vessel dry, even if it isn’t intended for use with water.

I use this trick over and over again and to me, fresh flowers makes everything a little brighter!

Just like I love fine wine and dark chocolate, I'd love to hear from you too!
