5 ways to style flowers when you don’t have the right vase
One of the things I love to do when I go to the market is buying some flowers, it makes the whole trip more fun. But I always find myself in the same position when I have to find a vase back home… I don’t know why but it seems that all the ones I own are either too large or too small. I always end up putting the flowers in another kind of container because of this.
As much as it bugs me to never have the right vase, people seem to appreciate the originality. So I thought that creating a list of alternatives ways to style flowers could help others in the same situation.
1.The Jar Solution
It’s no revolution but this is the easiest way to fill the lack of adequate vase. We all have tons of jars of all size and shapes and there has to be one that will fit your bouquet. It goes without saying that you need to use a nice looking jar. The vintage kind always works well.
2.The Ugly Jar Alternative
If you happen to have only very ugly jars, the kind you really don’t show to people, a good way to still use them is to wrap it up. kraft paper will just do the trick. Then hold it together with a nice string.
3.The Pitcher Bouquet Clarification
That’s an easy one too because we all have pitchers at home. It works with any kind of pitchers, ceramics, zinc and glass, and will add a touch of English cottage to your home.
3. The Bucket Theory
A bucket is another cool option you have to replace that misfit vase. What I love the most about it is the handle detail.
4. The Watering Can Exception
I just bought a very nice haws watering can see my previous article for more gardening goodies. And it fits perfectly the kind of bouquet I buy from the supermarket. I love this look so much I want to buy a bigger one just to put bigger bouquets in it.
That’s it for this topic, but please don’t hesitate to share your tips, I’m always looking for new ideas.
