Tiny Wedding Flower Arrangements

For years, Dan’s father, John, has collected glass bottles from construction sites and abandoned homes and barns.  There must be over 500 bottles in his collection and it keeps growing. For the most part, the collection lives in John’s basement, steadily growing. But whenever there is a family gathering–be it a wedding, dinner party, reunion, etc–the bottles are used as simple, beautiful decor. Sometimes they’re filled with flowers and other times they’re displayed alone or used to make the center piece at the dinning table.

Last weekend, Molly (John’s niece/Dan’s cousin) and Alex borrowed several of John’s glass bottles to make tiny flower arrangements to display on tables at their wedding reception. The day before the wedding, the mother of the bride, bridesmaids, and a few other women close to Molly got together and created the tiny arrangements to be used the next day. It was such a sweet thing to do together and the arrangement turned out beautifully. The flowers were grown by Molly’s mom and good friend and included an assortment of small green, pink, yellow and white blooms.

After I finished helping with the arrangements, I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos. They were just too beautiful! I love this idea of growing and arranging your own wedding flowers. Not only is it kind on your budget, it’s also sustainable and a great way to include family and friends in your celebration.

What do you think? Did you DIY your wedding flowers? Or are you planning to?

And, CONGRATULATIONS again, Molly & Alex! xoxo
