When I use flowers as a centerpiece for my table, oftentimes I just use one vase to hold the flowers. However, another option for a centerpiece is using a group of containers. Apothecary jars for flowers are perfect for this reason and come in a variety of sizes. They can also be purchased in bulk (depending on how many you want) so the cost can be minimal.
Flowers For Your Jars
Depending on the size of the apothecary jars you’re using will help determine what flowers to buy. Apothecary jars have a very narrow opening at the top so you’re only going to be able to use one or two flowers in each bud vase. The purpose of using apothecary jars for flowers is to place the emphasis on a few individual flowers instead of a whole grouping of flowers. Usually the jars are on the smaller size so the flowers will be as well. You won’t be able to use large-scale flowers such as foxglove or snapdragons in apothecary jars. These are for smaller more delicately-sized flowers such as sweet peas, roses, and zinnias.
Because my jars are only 6″ tall, I decided to group six of them together to create more of an impact. You can also place the jars on piece of linen (such as a placemat) or even a tray. I filled each jar with one ? each. What I love about this centerpiece is that it’s perfect for Spring. You can even use this idea for your Easter tablescape. I would love to see your ideas as well!
