5 Clever Bottle Decor Ideas

Bottles are incredibly versatile! A perfect decor accessory for any type of event, from weddings to baby showers. Often it’s not about the bottle itself but how you use it. In this post we will share 5 clever bottle decor ideas.

1. Centrepieces

QuirkyParties Bottle Center-pieceBottles are an easy, economical but effective way to display flowers as centrepieces. It’s visually appealing to place single stems of different colours and arrange the bottles in groups of 3 or 4 bottles. As a center piece it works really well as the bottles aren’t tall enough to obstruct you’re guests vision. If your tables are rectangle place a group of bottles in the center with a single bottle and flowers to the sides. Tie in bottles with your style / theme by adding ribbons in your colours around each bottle. Having a rustic theme? Use some wood slices for extra hight. Add sand to each bottle for a beach event.

2. Table numbers

Chalkboard painted bottles are great as you can paint them in colours that you like and then add the table number with chalk to the front. If you would prefer something printed perhaps print your table numbers slide them inside the bottle. Another idea is to create a tag  you could hang with your table number printed on it and simply slip it over the bottle.
