I have a very generous family friend who used to be a profesisonal florist and offered to arrange all my flowers for me. It was right at the time I was exasperated trying to figure it all out so I was very thankful.
The reality set in that it’s been a little difficult to communicate my preferences to her, regarless of photos and very specific lists. I hope it works out. She suggested lots of containers that were way off of the aesthetic I was going for, all sorts of colors and very specific themes that were all wrong. Anyhow, she finally reverted to maybe we will just use clear glass Ball jars, because they are convenient, easy, and clear glass like I like.
Now, I’m quite relieved because this is a lot better than the other options were. I’m just a bit worried now because I don’t want to go overboard with mason jars everywhere because they are already everywhere! My love for them has waned in the months I’ve been planning, so I’d almost prefer going with some plain glass vases, or a mixture.
I know I can’t just tell her that though without some concrete direction of specific vases, though it’d be so convenient if I could! Does anyone have suggestions for very affordable glass vases or cluster containers, that could potentially be just as convienient to acquire as mason jars?
