I am constantly drawn to pretty glassware, especially vintage
crystal decanters. I love finding ones with different cut patterns
on the glass. Even though itâ€™s not safe to have drinks in them
anymore, especially lead crystal, they can have other uses such as
making pretty vases! My Snowball Viburnum bush is in itâ€™s full
glory right now, and I thought it would be so pretty to put the
snowball viburnum in vintage crystal decanters I had collected and
make a coffee table display.

I decided to give them 3 different heights by stacking them on
books on my
white waxed coffee table. They are all about the same height,
so itâ€™s a great way to give them visual interest.

This decanter is one of my favorites! It has a fun, retro
daisy-like pattern down one side.
What I love about crystal decanters is how many different
shapes,designs and patterns there are. I have found most of them at
thrift stores for about $5.99. Iâ€™ve never paid more than $9.99
for one. If you canâ€™t find any vintage crystal decanters by you,
Amazon has some pretty

For todayâ€™s PSAâ€¦I have heard that youâ€™re supposed to keep
any kind of glass out of direct sunlight because it can cause a
fire by acting as a magnifying glass. Iâ€™ve even read of reports
that itâ€™s happened with crystal doorknobs! Pretty freaky.
My Snowball Viburnum was attacked by Viburnum beetles last year,
so this year they got a really aggressive pruning in the early
spring. One bush bloomed fine and the other decided it didnâ€™t
want toâ€¦ and Iâ€™ve been keeping an eye out for the little bugs
and grabbing the offenders right away when I see them. I am also
trying a product called
Tanglefoot to get the larvae on the way to the ground,
They are one of my favorite spring
flowers next to lilacs.They make such an impressive display in
a yard too and fill in blank areas nicely.
I love how they turn from a lime green to a pretty white. Itâ€™s
hard not to cut all of the flowers and spread them all over the
house. The blooms last pretty long in vases as cut flowers too.
I love how adding flowers to a room is such an easy way to
upgrade decor (like when I staged
The Oak House kitchen with fresh tulips.), and I really love a
good upcycle. Fresh flowers really bring rooms to life!
