When you were a kid, did you ever put a message in a bottle, toss it into the sea and hope somebody would find it? Turns out a 7-year-old in Hawaii recently discovered a message in a bottle from a boy in Oregon one year after he threw it into the ocean. (Destiny perhaps? You know, like Kevin Costner’s film, Message in a Bottle.) So, whether you’re hoping to share kind tidings or you love glass-bottle-decor, here are some home decor and entertaining ideas for your message in a bottle… or on the label.

I can’t get over how cool these glass bottles are. They’re all so different and fun in their own way. I’ve always wanted to try invisible ink like those hidden-love-note hearts from blogger Minieco. Bottles don’t necessarily have to be used for written messages, though. Those display jars from Yankee Magazine show how you can fill them with a sentimental object like old-timey family photos. (Such a great idea!) And milk jars like that one from World Market work perfectly as flower vases. (I have one, and it’s easily one of my favorite decorations!) Bottles, jars, glass containers…they can all convey the message of someone’s personal decor style flawlessly.
Which of these messages in or on a bottle best reflect your style?
