Centerpiece with Blue Glass Bottles

#itching4spring #Recycle #SpringColors
I love these vintage blue glass bottles that we repurposed from my daughter's wedding (bought at thrift stores or yard sales) and used with the fun fence slat box my husband built. Fill them with flowers and/or candles to add a festive touch to your table.

    This is so striking with the blue vases and the gorgeous pink flowers. Just beautiful!

    Very pretty Marty. I love cobalt blue glass. The pink flowers and greenery are perfect with it.

    Thanks Becky and Sherry C! When we did our daughter's wedding I didn't know I would inherit these but I'm so glad I did!

    How pretty Marty!

    I inherited all the glassware from our daughter's wedding too and I'm not so happy. I have no where to put them and since we added glass beads to the outside they don't fit in the boxes any longer. Had they been cobalt I've had been able to use them!

    Becky, I have all the glass jars from the reception, too, but we left them plain so between my niece, daughter and myself we've split them up and used them for entertaining and decor.

    Our daughter's were pretty, but just not my style. They're various height cylinder vases with clear iridescent flat backed marbles on them. They looked great on the reception tables.
  • A women's group at your church (or similar) might love to have them for decorating... or for showcasing items like silk flower arrangements at a sale... if you really don't care for them. Perhaps a MOPs (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) group that could use
  • I collect cobalt blue glass, antique and otherwise, so I thought your pictures were stunning! Thanks for sharing.

    Lisa Bates That's a great suggestion but I use all the glassware either for serving for parties or for home decor. Your thoughts are appreciated!
  • I'm sorry, comment was meant for someone with vases they had but didn't care for!
