Tiny Flower Vase

Glass food coloring bottles make lovely vases for tiny floral arrangements.

After my grandmother passed away, my parents helped my grandpa go through his kitchen and get rid of pantry and baking ingredients he wouldn’t use. I bake more than my mom does, so most of the baking items came to me. In the box my parents sent home with me, I found a half-dozen glass bottles of food coloring and extracts. I loved how dainty the bottles were, so I saved them even after they were empty.

I now use the glass bottles as mini-vases to display tiny floral arrangements. They’re a beautiful way to remember my grandmother, a woman who enjoyed baking and crafting as much as I do.
