Glass bottles

I am considering signing up for an evening class in floral design, but I think my preference is for simple, plain arrangements, but in pretty containers, such as those above.

From top; 1. Milk bottles (£9.75 and £10.50) from Lavender and Sage, 2. Laboratory flasks from Natural History (£10), 3. Vintage bottles (from £12) from Bottle Green Homes. 2 & 3 are from recently launched online businesses - worth a look.

Just beautiful. I spotted some old bottles in a junk shop near me, I think I might have to go and buy them now :)

I like this way of arranging flowers too. These are some arrangements I made to decorate my room in the summer:

Nice collection! I have the top left Bon Lait bottle (here) but strangely, never even thought of putting flowers in it! Thanks for the prod!

I love the vintage bottles in the last photo. I love the shade of green. Sometimes I just want to order things that I can't get in the states and have them sent to you and then you can bundle them and send them to me. You feature so many great products.

Anything only available in the US that you want?
