Vase Alternatives

Love It or Hate It? Detergent Bottle Vases

Hamburg-based photographer Julia Hoersch shot this stunning photograph of a dining table prêt for a meal, featuring two laundry detergent bottles used as vases for hydrangea and other pretty petals. The color palette is flawless, and I love the way the orangey-red and blue bottles stand out against the deep teal blue wall.

That said, while the unusual vase alternative is a suprising, memorable element, I don't think I could pull it off in my home. I've used tin cans and mason jars as vases before, but I think the plastic bottles would embarass me. What do you think? Would you try this at home?

I don't care what you use it as. It's still a detergent bottle.

I can't imagine any place where this would look good. Paint glass bottles instead.
