Choose the perfect vase for your flower arrangements
Adding flowers to your interior is always a great idea. Blooms, displayed in an appropriate vase, have the power to uplift and brighten up any space. They give you the ability to add touches of colour and texture wherever you see fit. However, finding a vase that will support your amazing flower arrangements can sometimes be tricky. Here is your guide on how to choose the perfect vase for your flowers.
Vases come in all shapes and sizes
It takes a little planning and artful skills to make your flowers become the focal point of your interior. When choosing a vase to support them, many options are available as they come in all shapes and sizes. We have broken down below some popular options along with some tips on how to pick the right shape, based on the type of flowers you are working with.
The Classic Column Vase
If you are working with long-stemmed flowers, the column vase is a classic piece to consider. Usually found in transparent glass, the narrow neck will immediately draw attention to the beauty of your lilies, gladioli or sunflowers, without compromising on their tall and elegant features.
Thinking of mixing flowers and leaves? Then any hourglass-shaped vase will be suitable. They will provide an optimal, full-depth display of the arrangement whilst giving the impression of a well rounded bouquet. This vase will be the perfect type for roses, hydrangeas or peonies. If you need some inspiration, either of our Antique ceramic flower vases available in 25cm or 35cm are great places to start.
Unlike hourglass vases, round flower holders are not suitable for long-stemmed or light-stalked flower bouquets. However, they are a treat for the hand-tied mixed flowers or any beautifully arranged posy of roses, tulips, or gerberas.
The idea is to cut down the stems to make the flowers stand upright in the vase with the leaves sitting on the neck, or you can play with positioning the flowers at different heights and make it the centrepiece of the dinner table or your console table.
Small Flower vases
Small flower vases are specific types of vases that accommodate single, long-stalked blooms or smaller types of plants such as succulents or cacti. The small flower vases are our favourites at Cérulien! We absolutely love them and collect many variations and styles. From quirky character flower pots to gold-frame or art deco-inspired vases, they are mainly used as accessories to decorate a table, shelf or chimney breast and often add a trendy and artsy touch.
You can find them all in our collection called: In need of Floral Support.
Flowers presented in a basket have a particular charm and can make quite a statement if displayed in the appropriate environment.
Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, woven baskets will protect the soil from which your flowers will grow while allowing them to breathe properly. If you are looking for a more authentic look, then a handmade basket will make the perfect fit!
Let your heart decide
Choosing the right vase for your flowers is a similar exercise to finding the next best piece of art to display at home. With so many options available you have room to experiment, mix, match and more... But regardless of the current trends out there, it is always best to take a look inside and ask yourself whether any addition to your home sparks joy and makes you happy.
