This is such a simple idea, but really lovely, don’t you think? I’d love to see these color keyed to particular events. They’d be so pretty in Fall colors, in red and green for Christmas, in glittery yarn for New Year’s Eve, and so forth. If you don’t already own one of these pretty clear glass vases, you could easily use a large wide mouthed Mason jar or any other suitable container you have on hand.
