Three simple tips to help get you started
Flowers come in all shapes and sizes; short and long stems, or stems that bend or wood-like ones. To get the most out of your bouquet consider that the shape of the vase also makes a big impact on the final look of your flower bunch. Here are our tips to find out which vase fits your flowers best.
Why is the vase so important?
So you might have been wondering about the importance of the vase. Well, we can tell you, it’s super important! It can upgrade or downsize the look of your entire bouquet! The shape and diameter of the neck determine how your bouquet is actually holding up.
There are three important things to look out for when choosing your vase:
1. The material of the vase
First of all, it’s important to pick the material of your vase. Preferably pick ceramics or glass. Chrystal is gorgeous but very hard to clean. Same goes for plastics. Also, not only is it hard to clean, plastic is very lightweight making it easier for your bouquet to tumble. And honestly, don’t you find glass and ceramics far more gorgeous?
2. Keep the length and sizes of your stems in mind
To pick the right size and shape of your vase, it’s important to know what kind of flowers and stems you’re actually dealing with. Sort them in categories: soft stems, tough stems and large flowers. Also, consider the length of your flower stems and how many you have of each.
3. The shape of the neck
There are so many different vases available: hourglass-shaped, orb- or cylinder-shaped, trumpet-shaped and many more. What you should really take into account is the size of the neck and the height of the vase in relation to the flower stems. Soft and long stems need more support to keep hold for example.
First, decide the height of the vase and then check the width of the neck. Does your vase have a slim neck? Then this one is perfect for a small bouquet ór for a few statement-stems, large flowers such as lilies or peonies.
Small vases are also perfect for a few flowers. Anything goes, but consider that heavy flowers droop easily so cut the stems, quite literally, short. A vase with a wide neck is suitable for a large bouquet ór for a few strong stems with lots of leaves and/or large flowers that need space to bloom.
Of course, you can pick the best vase for any design yourself, but we also like to make it a bit more easy for you. Especially designed for our own flowers, we offer exclusive yet affordable vases with prices ranging between €12,50 en €29.
