Craftista: B.Y.O.V. (Bring Your Own Vase)

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.

Love,

    OMGosh! Love the idea…love teacups & teapots! And, of course I heart Mason Jars! Since, my son’s name is Mason…I use Mason Jars for vases, gifts…they have become like a trademark for me. But, now I am totally loving the teacup idea! Thanks again Tori. Keep inspiring & sparkling, Lory Ann xo

  • Katherine C

    I have a giveaway at my blog Katherines Corner right now that has a beautiful teacup as one of the prizes. This is such a sweet idea xo

    Love this! I have flowers at home right now in a vintage pitcher that we got from my husband’s grandmother’s house after she passed away. It looks pretty, but I’ve never been good at arranging grocery store bouquets. It would look absolutely gorgeous if I got a florist to do it instead! Thanks for the tip!

    My great grandmother’s fifty year annniversary tea pot that was given to her by my grandmother on that day. What a special way to get flowers and also remember a loved one! Great idea as usual, T! Oh, and by the way, hope Dean gets the hint….

    Tori, have an old teapot that can no longer hold water. What a great idea.

  • Bird

    Love Jenny and her ideas! I’d use old tea tins like the vintage ones you find at flea markets. Also have used tea cups for candles! ♥

    Adore this idea using the teacups..I have quite a few of my Grandma’s. Thank you for sharing with us! :)

    Years ago for my birthday my mom had the florist send a bouquet of pink flowers in a pink rose teapot..yep, pink is my favorite color. Now I just have the teapot sitting on top of a bookcase.

    Do you have any ideas on what to do with large clear glass vases from the florist?

    Love you Tori! God Bless you and your beloved family! <3
