How to know which vase to use with which flowers
When it comes to flowers, there are about a million combinations between vase height, vase color, opacity, texture, shape, the list could go on. Then, once you start thinking about what flowers to add, you can start feeling a bit overwhelmed pretty quickly. Below are some of my go-to combinations for flowers and vases, especially for all the gorgeous spring florals.
Narrow Neck Vase
With a wide base that narrows towards the neck to keep blooms bunched together, these vases normally come with a "wow" factor of their own. I like to combine them with single stems with multiple blooms or make a statement with a large bouquet of Gypsophila. These ones are also gorgeous on their own as a statement on an entryway table or bookshelf.
Bud vases can vary in size, I'm a big fan of the little ones that are perfect for displaying single large blooms like daisies, or stock. The best part, is you can get a few in a line or varying heights together to bring a complete look together with the same flower in each.
I grew up with these ones all over the house. My mom loved to fill her flared vases with roses, alstroemeria or tulips. flared vase is thinner at the base and flares out towards the neck.. (So, the opposite of a narrow neck vase.)
This one is probably one of my favorite types of vases. It's forgiving to whatever type of flower or bouquet you are filling it with, giving plenty of space for all the stems as well as the flowers to have their own space. These vases are also perfect for greenery displays such as palms or eucalyptus leaves.
Vases are so much fun to add a focal point to any room with both the vase and the florals they hold. I hope these examples above help, but if all else fails, this is the simple rule I like to use... the bigger the bouquet, the wider the vase (cylinder or flare). If you have simple stems you want to highlight, bud or narrow neck vases are the way to go. Hope you treat yourself to a new vase this spring!
Give Your Entrance a Friendly Spring time Face Lift
I've always wanted to make a flower wreath, but have always thought they must be so difficult and time consuming so I just kept putting it off. Well this year, after my major door restoration project, I wanted to give my entryway a little spring time love.
After pinteresting some inspiration, I headed to Michaels to get my supplies.
I was so excited to get started once I got home. I cut the flowers so they had about a 2 inch stem remaining that I could use to press in between the wreath.
Once I had the flowers laid out the way I wanted, I used the florist tape to wrap around and between the flowers so that it was hidden beneath the petals. This way I could secure the pieces.
Then I hung it on the door! Done! I couldn't believe how easy this project was and it makes such a big difference for the season as we walk up to the door.
I'm big into the baby pink and lilac combo this year (good thing too since the Pantone color of the year is "Ultra Violet").
Thanks so much for stopping by and feel free to share your favorite floral wreath inspo in the comments below, I'd love to see what you guys put together.
How to give your home a fresh look this season (and on a budget)
Adding a little bit of spring time is often filled with bunnies and eggs in various hues of pastel glory. However, as much as I love Cadbury mini eggs (they are my favorite Easter candy), egg shaped everything just doesn't quite make for the modern, sophisticated yet comfortable look that we all know and love. These are some of my favorite affordable ways to add festive spring decor that transforms your home, can easily be put in storage if needed and add a smile on both you and your guest's faces.
Can't wait to hear what you think and let me know if you have any pastel color combo related questions!
