Flowers and Vintage Flickr Group - More Unusual Containers


Here are some more Unusual Containers from my Flickr group Flowers and Vintage. I just love the inventiveness and creativity in the different choices of containers that people have made for their flower arrangements.

I particularly like the jug with the Art Deco pattern on the side and the plain galvanized bucket is charming. The French re-cycled 'confitures' jar is also divine. 

I also like how even the most simple and plain flower looks so good in a little bit of a different container rather than a boring glass vase. Enjoy!

Hi Ingrid,
I am sooo glad other people use random containers as "vases" too. I find regular vases very common and not inspiring. I think a vessel should be part of the flower arrangement itself. I have to admit, I used a very beautiful and odd shaped basket that was made in Thailand as a "trash can" in our study (to disguise its real purpose), but then one day, I decided to use it as a "vessel" for a flower arrangement. I loved the way the arrangement turned out. I find it fun to use containers for purposes other than what they are intended for. I like to do that in my garden too. Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures.

I've been loving old galvanized containers lately. There's lots of inspiration here!
