Flower Power: Fall Beer Bottle Decor

When you want to make something special but don’t have the money to drop, you have to get creative. Most of us young, broke and fabulous people do not have three matching flower vases to make a uniform display. No problem! Improvise! Beer bottles serve as great vases! Soak the bottles in water for about ten minutes so that the labels come off easily and with no glue residue.

Arrange whatever flowers you like most in the bottles. Remember to create levels with your greenery and flowers. Cut some longer and some shorter for depth and texture! Cat-tails, featured in the middle bottle, are cheap and very “fall!” The Hostess Handbook suggests you use them to add some uniqueness to the decor. You do not need a lot of flowers for this display nor do they have to be expensive. The flowers and greenery shown are about $7!

Add a finishing touch by setting the bottles in cranberries! This adds color, texture and brings the whole piece together!
