If you are familiar with Persian cuisine, you know that many aromatic spices are used in preparing the various dishes. One in particular is saffron, which I use all of the time. As a result, I have tons of empty jars that were just too cute to throw away.
I was recently fortunate enough to be able to travel to Italy and France, and was inspired by the simple Provençal beauty – from a single flower in a milk jar, to buckets of lavender at the market and backyards filled with wild flowers and herb boxes. These images became my inspiration for this project.
For this DIY I simply stripped the labels from the jars, borrowed one of my children’s gold Sharpies and hand-decorated the jars, and placed some simple flowers in them. These clusters can really be used for any occasion – a brunch, dinner for two, cocktails with friends, or even a tea party – the possibilities are endless.
I brought these colorful soaps back from the town of Grasse (the “perfume capital of the world”) – they smell amazing!
And after label removal and decoration
You can use any flowers that your heart desires – I used: freesia, scabiosa, geranium, lavender, and button feverfew (for a little touch of yellow with all the purple)
