Miniature Champagne Bouquet

prosecco bouquet smallIs there anything cuter than a miniaturized version of something? When I opened my Christmas present from my niece Sarah and discovered the tiny bottle of prosecco, it elicited the same response I have to kittens. I knew the adorable bottle would be fun to repurpose as a vase.

Lily of the Valley are plentiful in my May garden and of the perfect scale for the approximately 5″ tall bottle. Fabulously fragrant, the delicate white bells even vaguely resemble bubbles frothing out in a celebratory fashion.  A champagne bottle bouquet would make a happy little gift of congratulations.  Sip a glass while you’re enjoying your floral arranging and it’s the gift that gives back!

If you have repurposed something into a vase, I’d love to hear about since I’m always looking for inspiration for quirky floral arrangements AND reusing things.
