You know I have a thing for old things. Vintage, old, antique- every bit is totally my jam!  I have been collecting vintage tea cups and bowls for a while now.  As I was looking at my collection, I though they would be perfect with some little flowers in them.  And I was right.  They are perfect!

If you've ever planted flowers, you know exactly how to do this.  But if you haven't here are some super simple instructions.  
  • Pour a little bit of soil into the tea cup.  If you plant to keep the flowers in the tea cup long term (btw long term is probably the summer), place a few pebbles into the bottom of the tea cup to help with drainage.
  • Grab the flower container that you bought from the nursery.  

How to plant flowers in tea cups.

  • Loosen up the soil on the flower container by smooshing it in your hands a little.
  • Gently tug the flower out of the container.  If it doesn't come out easily, cut or tear the plastic container to release the flower.  
  • Gently break up the dirt and the roots on the plant.
  • Place the flower into cup.
  • Fill the cup the rest of the way with soil.

I think these make such a sweet little gift for Mother's Day.  You could even put them together in a gift basket with a Mother's Day Vase and some Mother's Day flash cards.
