Craftista extraordinaire Jenny Dixon of Craft That Party is back today with another creative idea, just in time for Mother’s Day. You might remember Jenny from her past tuTORIals like the adorable Call Me Maybe Valentine and my personal favorite, her DIY Hot Chocolate Play Dough. This time, Jenny is sharing a florist insider tip to help spruce up your Mother’s Day bouquets. Without further ado, here’s  Jenny…


Sending flowers just got even more fabulous and personal. Did you know that your local florist can send flowers using your own floral containers? Think mason jars, tea cups, milk glass vases, etc… So many possibilities!


My great aunt had flowers delivered to my mom in this teacup for her birthday. It was such a sweet way to pass down a family heirloom. I love seeing a teacup from my great grandmother’s china closet transformed into a beautiful table centerpiece. She would be so proud!


Another bonus to B.Y.O.V. (Bring Your Own Vase) is that you will save money forgoing the florist’s traditional glass vases. A great tip to remember when entertaining!

Such a simple yet sweet idea—thanks for sharing Jenny! And Dean, if you’re reading this… a certain momista-of-four would love a vintage milk glass vase filled with peonies, ranunculus, and anemones. I won’t name any names, but I think it rhymes with Lori.

Do you have any treasured pieces that would look fabulous with flowers in them?

Let me know what you would use in the comments.
