This photo was taken at a county fair in the garden club tent where garden flowers and foliage competed for ribbons. When I came across this photo I realized that there is inspiration here for an innovative, inexpensive wedding floral display. A group of narrow necked clear bottles could be gathered either in the center of a table or along the back of a buffet or bar. By placing assorted flowers and leaves, one per bottle, in these containers you quickly create a garden. Because there is only one specimen per jar the shapes and forms of the individual blossoms are shown off.
This is an especially good idea for those who are having June weddings and want to use garden flowers. Since the annuals aren’t often very prolific at that time, displaying individual perennial flowers and leaves would be a great alternative.
