9. Keeping it Inside
Instead of the traditional vase of flowers, think outside of the vase (or inside rather), and choose one large flower or group of flowers to showcase inside of a cylinder vase or glass. Use rocks to keep the flower(s) upright, and add just enough water to keep the stems soaked. I think this looks really stylish and unique! It’s also budget-friendly considering you only need one flower to make it pretty.
10. Vase Envy
The flowers aren’t everything. The vase you choose makes a big impact on your floral arrangement, so get creative and don’t be afraid to use odd containers as your vase. Anything that will hold water will do! Just look through your drinking glasses and you’ll find a variety of vases you probably never thought to use. Even a tin can be a beautiful way to showcase flowers.
11. Floral Foam To The Rescue
For odd shaped containers, use floral foam to help create shapes that would otherwise be impossible. Floral foam also helps in any vase or container that is not transparent to create height and drama to flowers that would otherwise fall to the side. It can be easily cut to any shape or size you want, then you simply soak it in water for 20-30 minutes before beginning. Read more about this centerpiece here.
