Now isn’t designing a perfect flower arrangement an art not everyone can excel in? Well maybe but with the help from our floral experts, we bring to you few easy flowers and vase pairings that can help you step up your game. Read on.
A rounded or spherical vase can be a perfect match to those breathtakingly pretty roses you received from your special someone for it can beautifully echo the circular heads of these gorgeous blooms. Flowers with rigid stems tend to stand tall in a container that has a generous opening. In fact few other types of flowers with sturdy stems such as Chrysanthemums, Daisies and Carnations will really go well with rounded vases. Just pack in a lot of blooms in your vase and spread them out in a sculptural dome for a perfect look.
Nothing can make your Tulips look great than when they are placed in a wide-mouthed urn. The long and supple stems of Tulips lengthen up further to an inch after being cut. Also, their blooms get larger and thus need space to open and stretch. Other large blooms that would do great in an urn shaped vase are Lilies and Peonies.
Yes, you must have seen this vase way too often at a flower shop nearby with readymade bouquets in it. The small, ruffled opening of a bubble vase helps keep unruly flowers right in their place while keeping the arrangement loose. Blooms like Poppies, Sweet peas and Gloriosa Lilies can get mouldy if tightly clustered and hence they will do great when placed in a bubble vase where they can breathe.
Slender and curvy! Don’t run your mind elsewhere, we are talking about the bud vase that’s curvy and has a slender neck that can easily secure single or small flowers nicely in it. Any variety of flowers with thin stems such as Lilies of the valley, Poppies or Freesias will be the perfect match for a bud shaped vase.
Any flower with a bulky stem and a large head like Sunflowers, Peonies or Hydrangeas works best in the thick cylindrical vases. Such vases are also apt for tall flowers and branches. In fact, any abundant bunch of shrub-like flowers,when placed in a cylindrical vase,is sure to look controlled and in place because of the height and narrow shape of the vase.
We saved the toughest for the last! For most of the people, square vases are usually difficult to arrange flowers in but once you have crossed this slight hurdle, the final result is totally worth the effort. You must pick such flowers for square vases that have stick-straight stems, weighty heads but are delicate. Blooms like Daffodils or Hyacinths that look graphic will be the best match for the compact, angular square vases.
You must know that vases are like flowers’ significant others and if you really want the relationship to last long, you need to pair your flowers with those vases that suit them.It is also crucial to consider the length of the stem when pairing a bouquet with a vase. While a long stem bouquet usually looks great when paired with a long narrow vase, a wide mouthed short vase requires a fuller, shorter bouquet. Just a few things to consider and voila, you will have a perfectly paired flower bouquet and vase.
