I thought of a way to lighten our recycling load by one bottle and make my flowers look prettier in this huge vase.
Up above is this week's floral arrangement from my garden. After a few more seasons of planting, I hope to have so many flowers that I'll be able to easily fill up several large vases. But for now, I have to work with what I've got.
That's where the beer bottle comes in. If you have some short stemmed blooms or all your flowers flop out to the side, you can stick a few stems in a beer bottle full of water and then slide that right inside your big vase. Then stick in some longer stemmed flowers around the beer bottle.
It helps make the arrangement look fuller and balanced in the center.
