Today’s project containers can perform double duty, if necessary. Their main purpose was to serve beverages or treats. They also happen to be alternative floral devices. For folks who like to get more bang for the buck, these are idea starters.
The first project utilizes a mid-century vintage USA Pottery candy dish. The candy dish Ikebana is a no brainer if you don’t own any Ikebana planters but still want to experiment with this type of flower arranging art form.
A sleek IKEA wine decanter is also a fine, modernistic flower vase. For this project, I utilized medium-large blue and white blooms, along with green accents.
The starring pot in this project is a vintage Bauer coffee server. A generous layer of broadleaf greenery cradles a cluster of delicate purple flowers.
