I love having flowers in the home! I especially love being able to just grab flowers from the yard or from walks. Generally though, when I’m grabbing flowers from the “wild” I end up with pretty petite bouquet and struggle figuring out what to put them in. (I’m told a small bouquet of flowers is actually called a “nosegay,” go figure!) Today I found a solution for how to house them!
I was searching through our cupboards trying to find a glass that they wouldn’t look lost in. Too small for a wine glass, definitely too small for a drinking glass. Then I saw it and a light went off! A Buffalo Bills double shot glass… it was the perfect size! But c’mon, I don’t want my flowers to be seen living in some sports memorabilia, that’s not my thing (unless maybe it was a Portland Thorns shotglass).
I found a super easy and quick solution. I can never figure out how to keep the bouquet together, but I had the genius idea of using masking tape. Way easier than trying to use a rubber band and I knew it wouldn’t bee seen as long as it was low enough on the bouquet. Then I covered the shotglass with some pretty scrapbook paper.
Again, I turned to my good friend Ms. Masking Tape. I put some on the inside edge of the paper, sticky side down in the above image, that way all I had to do was roll up the shotglass and laid the overlapping paper over the tape.
Once it was taped down, I just trimmed the excess. For funsies I added a black ribbon to it too. It probably would have looked better with some twine, but I couldn’t find any and the black ribbon was handy… I never said I wasn’t lazy.
