The Right Vase For Your Spring Flowers
As springtime begins, the sun is making longer and longer appearances in the day and a multitude of flowers are filling fields and shop windows. Cut flowers bring a fresh and easy feeling to any room, adding both cheer and color. But what to put them in?
A basic glass or porcelain vase will do, but something a little bolder a little more whimsical, maybe even shimmering and metallic would set off those flowers and your tabletop as never before. Sure, people may warn you not to gild the lily, but a vase that compliments your décor scheme will only enhance that natural beauty of the flowers you put in it.
Chose a whimsical pair of porcelain faces if you want to put a fun and sophisticatedly quirky spin on the traditional vase. The sculptural quality of these vases will make them indispensable to your decor whether of not they have flowers in them.
If you like your accents more elegant and upscale, choose a textured metallic vase. It will look great with some long stemmed gladiolus or wispy willow branches. A soft warm gold is the best choice to compliment any room.
If you prefer traditional shapes, you could update the look of your vase by choosing one in a contemporary black glass that gives a touch of modern chic to any arrangement of flowers.
Whatever type of vase you prefer, be sure to choose something that looks great with or without flowers so you aren’t constantly packing it away and bringing it out again.
