hello wedding - test tube vase trend:

July 28, 2010

i went shopping with my mom a couple weeks ago for some wedding decor and noticed all these test tube vase decorations in the stores: i really am loving them. then i stumbled across betsy white's blog where she did a round up of some test tube vases. definitely an upcoming trend, what do you think of them? anyway, i decided to go on a hunt for test tube inspiration!


1 from here / 2 from here













whew, there's a lot out there :) hope you're inspired today.
xo.

  11. I had those for my wedding! I had bamboo in them also. What's awesome is that they are virtually unbreakable if they are truly test tubes.

  15. I never really loved the test tube vase as I've only seen them in the small variety that holds a single bloom and that's just not enough for me...but seeing all the wonderful varieties here I do believe I am changing my mind. The tear drop shaped tubes are especially wonderful. I've bought test tubes before for other crafty projects and I'm posting the link here as it is a great resource for this kind of thing: www.lcmlab.com

    Thanks for sharing your inspirations.

  26. I've never seen this idea before but I'm crazy about it! There's something kind of minimalist about it, which is fun. I'm definitely going to try it sometime (:

  29. I love this idea too! I've been searching for vintage science doo-dads, especially test tubes and wooden test tube stands.

  30. I loved them hanging... great ideas.

  31. This is so adorable! I work in a lab and right now I'm contemplating taking a few glass test tubes home!

  32. absolutely gorgeous! <3

    to tell you the truth, I've always loved small vases, some of them put together with in every one of them one beautiful flower. so much better than one big vase with a bunch of flowers in it. :)

  36. Love the Pigeon Toe Ceramic's ones. My friend did corked glass test tube favors full of juicy pear jelly beans (green was one of the wedding colors). A snack for guests and a great bud vase to take home (each one came with a little wooden block for a stand)...so cute!

  37. What a great idea. These test tubes made me start to think that I might actually like science.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I LOVE this trend! My mom's a chemist and I have asked her to bring home a few test tubes for me to turn into vases in my new house. :)
