Unique Vessels: Cute Mugs

Have you ever looked around your house and counted the number of cute mugs you have gathered? My sister and I are the queens of buying (or being given) cute mugs, and as a result we have a lot of them. After opening the cupboard the other day, I decided that a few of them would make a great 'Unique Vessels' post. Here are three ways you can use your mugs to create a beautiful table arrangement. tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

Vintage Teapot DIY

While wandering around the local Anthropologie the other day, I came across a selection of vintage teapots - each one-of-a-kind - that they had for sale in store. I immediately picked the lovely teapot below with a flowing asymmetrical arrangement in mind. Fruit branches are always a great choice for asymmetrical designs, and the plum and crabapple berry branches that I've used in this design both fulfill their destiny of asymmetry, as well as provide a lovely contrast in color. Pink peonies and garden roses add a lush texture and huge pop of color. tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood
