Got a bit of a creative streak, you say? Like to add some unexpected touches to your garden? I gotcha covered here. On a recent visit to Lucinda Hutson’s exuberant central Austin garden, I noticed a small bed in the back that was edged with clear bottles. Not steel edging, not rock, but glass bottles. And the “mulch” in the bed consisted of collected wine corks! Now, you know girlfriend’s giving some serious parties to have that many corks! (Actually, people drop them off in bags for her).
I’ve always been drawn to eclectic vignettes like this one–and recycling your party materials just makes sense, my friend. Doesn’t this make you feel simply obligated to throw a party now? Hey, you’re just doing your part to be green.
