Vases, Vessels, and other Containers

Any container that holds water can hold flowers. Coffee pots, cans, apothecary jars, antique pewter vessels, glasses, or concrete urns. If you are drawn to a container that doesn’t hold water, such as a wooden box, wicker baskets, or rusty bucket, use a plastic container within the unique vase and build your bouquets from there. 

Tall cylindrical vases might work for longer stems, like tulips, but they don’t lend themselves to fuller arrangements. Instead look for vessels that have a wider opening at the top. It’s best to match your container to the mood of an event. A casual country-style reception might call for mason jars, water pitchers, or ceramic pots. A more formal celebration could use silver-plated tea sets, fancy pedestal bowls, or crystal goblets. 

Narrow-necked bottles and bud vases are good for single stems and can be arranged in groups. They can wander down a dinner table or sit at every place setting. Silver tea services, with their matching sugar bowls and smile pieces. Beakers, flasks, and other laboratory glassware are striking, modern containers. 

Going to flea markets, antique shops, and consignment stores can be perfect places to find that unique vase, vessel for your bouquet flowers!Β  If you love animals, check out Printhousedesign.com on Etsy and see unique planters that are 3D printed in over 50 different animals!Β
