an easy pretty

Having just wrapped up a small summer gathering this weekend, I wish I had found this idea a little earlier. Over at decor8, Leslie from the Color Me Pretty column was brainstorming some party ideas and came up with this beauty.

She suggests spray painting various glass bottles white and decorating them with that snazzy Japanese washi tape (and other bits of paper craft if it suits your fancy) for an instant centerpiece or windowsill display. Just add flowers from the garden or farmer's market and the result is lovely!

I might simplify even more and hunt around for inexpensive mismatched white vases and bottles, because then the tape could be removed and you could use another color scheme depending on your mood and the event. Either way, I love this idea....
