Say it with Vases
A few months ago I read about Say it with Vases in a Magazine. They are neat little plastic vases that fold up when you don't need them. Living in a condo with limited space I thought that this was a great idea. Jill from Virtual Mom Blog and owner of Say it with Vases sent me one to try. Thanks Jill! This past weekend I opened up my package and read the instructions. I have to admit, I had no idea how this was going to work. It was after all, completely flat. To my surprise, all I had to do was fill it with water and it opens up and stands upright. Very cool! I put my flowers in and that's it. It's a vase!
I think that this is a great hostess gift or as her website suggests, an addition to flowers so your hostess doesn't have to go searching for a vase. My only disappointment is that the mouth of the vase is not very large and can't hold a large bouquet. My solution to that is buy two of these and split up a bouquet between two vases. Breaking up a bouquet and spreading them out throughout your home gives a great impression, makes you feel good and it's affordable. Here's what I did with mine, give them a shot and let me know how you use yours.
