I love collecting bottles of all shapes and sizes. I rotate these in and out of my bay window for different seasons. Today was a "blue" day -- the sky is finally clear blue and it feels like summertime.
Sometimes all it takes is a single bloom (or in this case, fern) to make a bold statement.
You can do this with any food coloring. Fill all of your containers with water. Add lots of food coloring to your darkest bottle or vase first and stir with a skewer. Then add a single drop to each of the other containers, stirring with the skewer. Now, simply empty part of the water in each remaining bottle and refill with water. Keep dumping and adding water until you get the desired gradations of color.
This was just a simple 3-shade display but it's really fun with lots of bottles and lots of different shades of the color!
I change out the flowers and the colors of water from time to time. Here are a few of the ways I've displayed these.
So many options and so many possibilities for an eye-catching arrangement using jars, bottles, vases and a single bloom!
