4 Ways to Decorate a Plain Vase for a Garden Party

Posted by on May 22, 2013 in backyard, crafts, garden, garden art | 13 comments

I wish I could invite you to a garden party this week.

I would make a fudge pie.

Along with some sweet tea.

I don’t know exactly how I would set the table.

I know I would use my blue dishes

and, my grandmother’s green glasses.

I have a few ideas on the centerpiece. . .

Every idea starts with this plain glass vase.

I could add 12″ pickets using a hair band.

(I am sure that a rubber band would work,

but in a house of 4 girls with long hair, these things are everywhere.)

And, tie on a wired gingham ribbon.

That would set a pretty table.

Or, I could add baker’s twine using a couple of glue dots.

Then, I could add some fun pictures under the twine.

I have plenty of these to choose from.

My daughter, Daisy has a great display of them in her room.

I could show you her room while you were here.

And, you could share your Instagram pictures with me.

Or, I could cut your initial from sheet moss,

and, add burlap ribbon with glue dots.

Or, I could use glue dots to attach garden twine around the top of the vase.

Using Seed Packs to Decorate a Plain Vase @ DaisyMaeBelle

And, attach the seed pack with a tiny clothespin.

You could help me plant my Zinnias,

and I could send a pack home with you.

I don’t know which one to choose. . .

Which one would you like?

It wouldn’t really matter.

It would just be fun to get to know you. . .

Life to the full!
