If you’ve ever been given a beautiful bouquet of flowers and then had to search around for a suitable vase or bottle to arrange them into, you’ll know that what you place them in is as important as the flowers themselves. Sticking a gorgeous long-stemmed arrangement of vibrant blooms into a grubby old jug will not do them any favours, and what a waste of the thought and intention behind the flowers.
If you are looking for something a little different and vintage inspired, then take a peek at Dartingon’s new Flower Bottles collection. It offers colourful new way to display your favourite flowers and was even awarded Gift Of The Year in The Giftware Association’s 2009 awards. All of the bottles featured are designed by Dartington’s Hilary Green and are so beautiful that they would look good with or without flowers. Dartington offer a range of glassware, including drinkware, bespoke personal and corporate gifts and much more. In the meantime, check out our favourite flower bottles:
