Little Aqua Vase

As much as I love fresh flowers, it seems I'm always putting them in clear glass vases.  I don't know why it hadn't occurred to me to use a colored or more interesting vase before.   A while back, I was drawn to this little aqua vase from Crate & Barrel that I usually keep in my home office.  It has a small neck, perfect for just a couple of stems.


And I thought the aqua was pretty with some yellow flowers. 



And even my bathroom counter looks cheerier with the pop of color. 


So excited about all the possibilities- especially with what a quick coat of spray paint can do to transform my boring clear vases!  Maybe a weekend project?!

Come back tomorrow for a great giveaway from Little Doodahs!  Here's a sneak peek:

  1. I have the EXACT same vase from Ikea! And it's turned out to be my favourite vase in the house! It does look sweet with just one little bloom in it, doesn't it? A lovely way to add a little colour!

  4. Love your little blue vase! I don't have many colored ones, may have to find the one at Ikea that Carol-Anne mentioned. The giveaway is adorable and great for restaurant trips with the kids. My friend and I made 20 of these to give as party favors for her daughter's 3rd birthday. They were a big hit!

  6. Those are sweet. I need to get some as I use mason jars and they require too many flowers! Starting spending a bit more than I wanted to on flowers. I like that these hold just a couple stems as you said.

  9. Hi. Don't spray paint your clear vases, better to go to a craft store, they have an etching agent that you swirl around in the vase, then you pick a special enamel paint- they have all colors and swirl that paint inside and dump the excess out. Looks more like a milk glass or like the beautiful votives from glassbaby. It was featured in a Martha Stewart years ago. The materials are not very expensive at all. Check into it, you will love!
