Per­fect to­gether: spring flow­ers and vin­tage op shop trea­sures

YOUR LO­CAL OP SHOP is a trea­sure trove of po­ten­tial re­cep­ta­cles for flo­ral dis­play. Dis­play dainty blooms like vi­o­lets in pint-sized vin­tage china teacups, dec­o­ra­tive eggcups or upcycled crys­tal sherry glasses; with larger blooms, try jugs, urns, or even tea and cof­fee pots!

Charm­ing vin­tage tins make an un­usual and char­ac­ter-filled con­tainer for blooms – per­fect for a wed­ding, as the tins and flow­ers can be given to guests as a keep­sake. Try coloured blooms in old coloured glass bot­tles, or if you have a set of milk bot­tles in a caddy, try a dif­fer­ent bloom in each bot­tle!
