Do you have a love affair with glass like me?
Jars. Bottles. Clear. Colored. It doesn’t matter, I am drawn to them like a mosquito to my bug zapper!
One of the reasons that I love glass containers so much is that they are so versatile. I can style them on a whim in a few minutes and completely change the vibe of the room.
Wow! Now that is a decorating superpower! Does this make me Decorating Wonder Woman? Well, Wonder Woman is able to do a wardrobe quick change on a dime so, YES!
This is your basic glass balloon bottle vase and in its bare purchased form. This is a large vase that I like to use on my kitchen island. However, you can utilize these ideas with any size bottle vase. I love the irregular shape, the narrow neck and the thin rope detail at the top. In all honesty, I could leave it just like this and be perfectly happy.
But this is where the fun begins!
Bottle Look #1
KISS – Keep It Simple Sister!
Add one stem of greenery to create a minimalist vibe. This is so simple that it seems a little ridiculous to share. But, sometimes the simplest move is the hardest to take. One stem…that’s it! Simple, yet effective.
Bottle Look #2
Shop your jewelry box!
After some digging (time to organize my jewelry!), I found this blue beaded wonder with bonus multi metal coins. I thought, if it works around my neck, it must work on the bottle’s neck! Voila!
Bottle Look #3
The jewelry around the neck got me thinking…I love to wear scarves! Off to the closet again! (Fortunately, my scarves are little more organized than my jewelry today.) I tried several different scarves and settled on this one because of the color and because of the tassels. Love!
Bottle Look #4
With the onset of spring, I am motivated to do a seasonal look. Something that looks like spring but can also work for the Easter holiday. I don’t have any flowering branches outside yet (one of my favorite go-tos for vases) so I’m opting for these multi-colored, multi-beaded bendable branches. I’m adding a bright fuschia pink ribbon for pizzazz and stepping back to admire my work!
Note: no fancy bow needed. Just a quick over-under of the ribbon!
