We’ve all seen those amazing styled shoots full of cute little glass bottles filled with wildflowers galore. Or the DIY weddings with a bride who has patiently collected old apothecary bottles and/or milk bottles for an amazing display of dahlias, roses, etc.
What about the flowers taking a back seat to the bottles?
In my daily perusal of my wonderful wedding and event blogger colleagues, I am noticing a trend toward making bottles the star of the decor show. A beautiful display of altered bottles is amazingly set off by such fillers as Baby’s Breath, Queen Anne’s Lace, and Wax Flower. How great is it that a seemingly plain bottle can be transformed with bits of heirloom lace, antique pictures of relatives, and assorted bits of family jewelry (especially lone earrings)? Here are a few altered bottles that I hope inspire you as much as it has inspired me.
