Festive vessels

Round up a tray full of serving pieces to have on hand for the holiday weekend. They'll be perfect for serving snacks or holding bouquets from the garden. Milk glass containers are readily available at thrift stores and secondhand shops. Simply dress them up with a mix of vintage (or new!) trims like rick rack and bias tape. Cut a length big enough to wrap around your pot, then secure with a bit of double stick tape or crafting glue.
Fill, and enjoy!


  1. This is one of those things that is such a great idea I wish I would have thought of it myself before now.

    Thanks so much- you just solved that big question "how do I decorate for this holiday in a way that hasnt been seen a million times before?"

    I adore milk glass and this gives me a great excuse to have more- ha!

    Keep up the great work.

  2. Thanks Michelle...often the simplest ideas are the best, and the ones we overlook when we're trying to come up with something unique and festive....enjoy all of your 4th of July festivities!
