I bought my first Bubble Stem / Bud vase in 2011 when I was looking for ideas for my wedding table decorations. I liked the idea of having 1 big high-impact flower per vase and bought a few bubble stem/bud vases. In the end I used old vintage green bottles in the picture below.
After the wedding I still loved the bubble Stem / Bud vases so carried on buying them. I believe they originate from the 60’s/70’s. I have found a few in charity shops, but most of them I have bought of ebay. I now have over 70 vases.
