Flower arrangement in a button-filled vase.

For a unique Mother’s Day flower arrangement, consider putting your flowers in a button-filled vase. The buttons create an eye-catching vision of a rippling pool of baubles.

You’ll need:

  • A large glass vase and a narrower vase that fits inside it
  • Enough buttons to fill the space between them (We used vintage mother-of-pearl buttons, which, unlike plastic ones, are heavy enough that they won’t float.)
  • Flowers
  • Water


  1. Fill the bottom of the large vase with buttons, and place the second vessel on top. Add more buttons, filling the space between the vessels, and then add water.
  2. Fill the smaller vessel with water, and arrange flowers inside.
