I've become re-obsessed with Plain T from Eataly and I haven't been able to get enough lately. Whenever I can get a chance to stop in there and pick one up, I always do. I couldn't help but think about what I can do with the bottles because to me they are just so pretty. I know the tea is bottled in the Hamptons so this summer I'm hoping to maybe go see where they bottle it.
So I came up with this adorable little craft idea in the meantime until I can do something even better. It's really simple to do and very inexpensive because all you need to do is purchase the flowers that you want for the bottle turned vase. I got these springy flowers because they just made me so happy and made me think of warmer weather (which thank god we are seeing more of these days).
First you're going to make sure you clean out the bottles really well. Once you've done that, you're going to also want to make sure you add enough water and the plant food in BEFORE you place the flowers in. I made this mistake so I wanted to make sure I shared it with you.
These are the flowers that I chose. They are so simple and beautiful and just scream spring to me.
I also ended up using all but one of the dozen flowers that I got for ONE tea bottle, so if you want to make sure you have enough for one bottle, get two dozen flowers. I think they came out so simply adorable. This is perfect decor for spring without being too Eastery or overboard.
What do you think? How do you decorate for spring? Send me some tweets and let me know! -Brit.
