When it comes to decorating with floral arrangements, a beautiful bouquet needs to be presented in a vase that fits perfectly with its style. Too small and the flowers will not have enough space to flourish in all their beauty; if the bouquet is smaller, a larger vase will mean it looks sparse. There are so many shapes and sizes to choose from, all in different designs and styles. It needn’t be a daunting task to find the vase that best suits your taste. So how do you choose? Ebraheem Al Samadi, Founder of home grown floral boutiques, Forever Rose London, shares his simple tips to choosing the perfect vase for your florals.
The vase comes first
Looking at the shelf, you can probably see a variety of vases that you have accumulated over the years. If you are lucky enough, you will have a variety of sizes to choose from when the time comes. If you are lacking in choice, it is important to choose a bouquet that will suit the style of vase you do have. If it is tall, long stemmed florals that are elegant in style will add a sense of delicate charm. Smaller vases are the perfect holder for an assemblage of the same type of flower, placed neatly and compact for optimum effect
Down to location
Depending on the style of vase, you want to ensure you place it in the perfect surroundings that will elevate the bouquet and the aesthetics of the room. Large open spaces mean a bigger bouquet can accommodate the space. For coffee and side tables, choose a smaller vase and bouquet to add and not over power the area it is placed. If you are hosting a dinner, you can arrange the table to the style that suits you, whether it be a few vases in all the same height, one large arrangement in the center or perhaps stagger vases in varying heights and styles to add depth.
All in the detail
Although a large bouquet is always a beautiful spectacle to view, even the smallest of arrangements can elevate a room. Simple stemmed florals in a smaller vase suited for delicate arrangements can add the perfect touch when dotted around the home.
Unique shaped vases can truly add an individualistic style to the home. A vase with patterns or crystal carvings can be the stand out all of its own. If you are planning to use an elaborate vase as the base, choose florals in a neutral colour to have it be the focal point. Want to have a more extravagant look? Use a variety of bright colours in the arrangement similar to the vase hues to really create something truly memorable.
The vase is not only the base of a floral arrangement but can be the perfect element to enhance your beautiful bouquets. Whatever your style be, stick to the above tips and you will surely have an arrangement perfect to suit your home decor and the elegant touch only florals can achieve.
