Flower fantasy

Flower arrangements take on a new dimension when you use a collection of conatiners in a variety of heights and sizes. Part of the fun is the origin of these glass "vases" in really classic shapes. These are simply those clear green bottles that ordinarily contain mineral water.

Use a cluster of the small- sized bottles with only one or two stems in each for a charming nosegay effect. Or, use a collection of different sizes with a variety of blossoms, some large and some small. Both the shape and the pale green of the glass will make a few flowers take on the importance of a big bouquet.
