My mother's birthday and Mother's Day always fall around the same time - sometimes they are even on the same day. So I'm always looking for at least two great ideas around this time to try. And this button filled vase from Martha Stewart was too perfect an idea to pass up.
1. Find a vase that is small enough to fit inside your larger one, the one you will fill with buttons, but be sure that your narrow vase large enough to hold a full floral arrangement. Fill the bottom of your large vase with buttons and place the smaller vase inside. Then fill the space between the two with an assortment of buttons tring to keep them in the same color family and heavy enough that they won't float. Once the space is full add water.
2. Now all that's left to do is to add some water to the smaller vase and arrange your flowers.
I don't know about you but this is one gift my mom is sure to love.
