Inspiration Friday: Country style flowers and what to put them in.

A few weeks ago I was asked by one of my brides who is planning a village fete themed wedding (with the current total of village fete games at 22!) if I could find her some vases to put her country style flowers in. She wasn’t really looking to have loads of flowers as the food is being served picnic style and placed down the middle of each long table, so she just wanted a few sweet peas dotted here and there.
This sent me on a little trip round the internt sourcing small vinatge vases for her, so I thought I would share my findings with you.
I have added in a few other options as well to give a bit of variety but I think they all go well with the country cottage, English country garden theme that is SO popular at the moment.

To accheive this look for yourslef then read the post I put up last week on How to achieve that just picked look
I hope you find this selection useful, do let me know what you think and if you have found any others to add to this collection

    I have been doing a similar search myself for a civil partnership in July and they are having a tea party in their garden, and wanted me to recreate table centres so that it looked like they had just been picked from their own flowerbeds.

    I love all these containers, but my favourites would be the floral jugs and the planted tea cups… very cute!

    You have found such a wonderful choice of containers for floral displays just perfect for a country style wedding.

    So sweet! Not my style for a wedding, but perfect for a baby shower I think. Something soft and cozy :), lovely!

    I was searching for nice centerpiece bottles and google brought me here. Thanks for sharing, a very creative post. I get some inspiration for our new house.

    I was searching for something very similar for my vintage style wedding and found bottles very similar to photos 1 and 2 but for a fraction of the price, i picked up over 20 glass bottles in various sizes and shapes (which makes a nice random effect) from car boot sales! i paid between 10p and a pound per bottle. super savy and better for the environment than buying new. they did need a bit of a clean though!
