Decorating your home is a fun and worthwhile endeavor. By adding to your home’s unique look, you make it more inviting for guests – and, of course, more enjoyable for yourself. Decorating creates a sense of charm and personality in a home. One of the most popular ways of adding a little bit of shine and elegance to any space is to use glassware. Here are a few ways you can work it into your decorating scheme.
- Fill vases with fresh flowers. One of the most popular ways to use a vase is to fill it with flowers. If you have a flower garden, it can be relaxing and fun to cut fresh flowers and place them in a vase. Keep it in any room of the house that needs a bright pop of color or a fresh, floral scent. Even if you don’t have fresh flowers, you can still use silk flowers or other artificial plants to keep the bright look of Mother Nature present within your home.
- Use bowls to hold fresh fruit.If you want to present your fruit in a creative way, why not try placing them in glass bowls? Organize your fruits and veggies so that they look appealing through the glass – mix and match shapes and colors, or simply divide the fruits into their own uniquely-shaped bowls to add a sense of organized chaos to your kitchen.
- Use a vase as a candle holder. By filling a glass vase with water, you can easily use it as a candle holder. Floating candles will look romantic and elegant in any room. However, you can also fill the vase with sand, pebbles, dried pasta, lavender, herbs, or any other item you can think of. As long as the flame is positioned away from the material, you can use just about anything to personalize your vase!
- Place old wine corks in your vases. If you collect wine corks, as some connoisseurs do, keep them in your glass vases. The corks add a worldly feel to your home and definitely look good displayed through crystal-clear glass.
- Use a vase to hold your utensils. If you’ve found yourself at a loss for space in your kitchen, why not upcycle old glasses, vases, or bowls to be utensil holders? You can paint over them or leave them as is – it’s all part of your own personal charm that you want to cultivate within your home.
