How to get best vase shape for your flowers

 

Follow these tips to get the right vase for certain flowers, as well as to prepare your blooms for a beautiful display.

Vase 1: Tall and Round

A fixture in all homes is a large statement vase. To beautify large spaces in your home it’s the only decorative piece you will need when filled with beautiful flowers. However, if you fill it with the wrong flowers the vase can look unremarkable. The key? Fill round, tall vases with flowers like lilies that are large as well as with liberal foliage. They will fill the space in a tall, round vase as they are long and nice with big beautiful blooms

Vase 2: Cube

When styled in the right way cube vases make chic centrepieces. However, it can be difficult to figure out how to fill it due to their height and shape. You need a little patience and a nice sharp scissors to fill it beautifully. Bulky flowers like roses are best as they don’t open too widely.  You’ll want to use as many blooms as you can for the most impressive effect. Having said that, cube vases are a bit challenging to fill. Cut short the flowers and fill up the space by tightly packing in a bunch of flowers.

Vase 3: Narrow Neck

Do not pick luscious, thick bouquets for vases with narrow necks. Choose slim and tall bunches of flowers (for e.g. orchids). They are extremely beautiful if filled the right way. Choose flowers with the right height and colours to complement the vase.

Vase 4: Rectangular

Tall flowers suit tall rectangular vases. Choose flowers like tulips with strong stems that will not droop or bend for the prettiest result.

Vase 5: Fishbowl

For at-home dinner parties fishbowl vases are perfect centrepieces. You can fill them up with baby’s breath or peonies. But you need to know how to style them perfectly. Go for small, round arrangements. At the small opening of the fishbowl vase the arrangements should spill out around.
