YOUR DECOR COULD DO WITH A BOTTLE OR TWO!

I WAS PUTTING FRESH FLOWERS IN AN OLD GREEN BOTTLE, WHEN I GOT A PHONE CALL. WHEN I STEPPED BACK INTO MY KITCHEN, I WAS TREATED TO THIS VIEW, AND I WAS STRUCK WITH THE BEAUTY IN SIMPLICITY. A BOTTLE MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE!

INDEED, SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS A BOTTLE CAN CHANGE UP THE LOOK OF YOUR HOME!  LET'S EXPLORE SOME DELIGHTFUL EXAMPLES OF BOTTLES IN DECOR!

THIS IS SIMPLY AN ALCOHOL BOTTLE PAINTED BLUE, AND STUCK INTO A VINTAGE RICE MEASURE. YET, HOW CHARMING IT LOOKS!

OLD PERFUME BOTTLES ARE A FANTASTIC WAY TO INTRODUCE GLASS BOTTLES IN YOUR DECOR. JUST CREATE A VIGNETTE WITH OTHER INTERESTING ITEMS SUCH AS CANDLES AND VOTIVES, AND A BEAUTIFUL TRAY OR RUNNER.

WHEN YOU GET FLOWERS FROM THE FLORIST, YOU ALSO GET FILLER FLOWERS LIKE THIS.JUST POP THEM INTO ANY OLD BOTTLE, AND PLACE THEM IN THE KITCHEN OR BATHROOM, SO THAT EVERY PART OF YOUR HOME GETS A DOSE OF BOTTLE LOVE!

A BARE TABLE CAN INSTANTLY LOOK BETTER WITH A LARGE DEMIJOHN OR CARBOY ON IT. THE COLOUR OF THE BOTTLE IN THIS PICTURE IS ALSO UNITQUE & STUNNING!

SPEAKING OF DEMIJOHNS, I LOVE THIS ARRANGEMENT IN OUR HOME IN MANGALORE! IT MAKES THE CORNER LOOK SO PRETTY!

WHEN YOU HAVE A SUMMER SOIREE, KEEP SIMPLE BOTTLES AROUND YOUR BALCONY OR GARDEN WITH A SPRIG OF ANY GARDEN FLOWER.
