Milk Bottle Wedding Ideas

During my trip to Sydney, I met up with some friends for lunch at Kitchen by Mike and fell in love with its revamped warehouse space. One side was a bustling rustic style cafe with communal style seating and on the other side was a space selling furniture, kitchenware and other tid bits.

I loved that their cutlery were served in rustic aluminum cans and drinks in milk bottles. I helped myself to their homemade lemonade with barley (yums) which came in a tiny glass milk bottle with a red and white stripey straw and it got me thinking about milk bottle wedding ideas. Like mason jars, glass milk bottles are great and inexpensive vessels for any kind of wedding arrangement, be it your floral centrepieces, delicious summery drinks, dessert tables, escort cards or even wedding favours.

They’re particularly useful for cute DIY table arrangements for those of you who don’t want the fancy big floral arrangements. Group milk bottles in a wooden case or place them in a metal stand or group them together with twine. When filled with wild flowers or other simple blooms it creates an intimate and relaxed arrangement that’s super pretty.

or fill them with yummy sweets for your wedding favours. These bottles were filled with layers of ingredients for chocolate chip oatmeal cookies! How cool is that?!
