A correctly selected vase complements and emphasizes the beauty of the bouquet and decorates any, even the simplest, interior. However, the choice of the product should be taken seriously - in addition to your personal preferences, you must take into account its shape, size and the material from which it is made. Today we will tell you how to do it.
What flower vase to choose: determine the size
When choosing a vase, pay attention to its size. The bouquet in it should be comfortable. If the plants are crowded, they will quickly wither. If the bouquet is large and heavy, and the vase is low and narrow, it will most likely turn over and the water will spill onto surrounding objects.
What shape to choose a flower vase
Vases can have a variety of shapes: cylindrical, square, spherical, etc. But not every one of them can emphasize the beauty of the bouquet. For example, short wildflowers will look ridiculous in a tall vase shaped like a cylinder, and large roses with long stems in a balloon model. Remember that the length of the stems, the size of the buds and the number of flowers - all this should be taken into account when choosing the shape of the vase.
Flowers with long shoots look best in long vases (for example, cylindrical or oval). Wide bouquets with short “legs” are more suitable for low items with a wide neck. If the heads of the flowers are small and the stems are stiff and wide, they will look best in wide containers with a narrow neck, for example, in bottle vases.
In such models, lush bouquets of wildflowers look good, as well as flower heads floating in the water. It can be buds of roses, daisies and orchids. Often, instead of water, hydrogel beads are used. This is a great option for decorating a table for a wedding or a gala reception.
Another win-win option is a large number of flowers with small and stiff stems. Bouquets of roses, daisies, chrysanthemums, carnations and lilies are perfect. In this case, the flower heads must be placed above the vase in the shape of a dome.
Cylinder vaseCylindrical vases go well with flowers on long stems and with large heads (roses, gladioli, sunflowers, peonies, hydrangeas).
Lush bouquets are completely unsuitable for bottle-shaped models. Such vases go well with a small number of flowers on a long stalk (peonies, tulips and carnations) or one large flower.
Such models are suitable for lush and large bouquets. In such vases, it is better not to put flowers with thin stems and small heads.
Square vases and vases in the shape of a cube
For such products, choose flowers with strong stems. Square tall vases are suitable for bouquets with a large number of leaves, and cube-shaped containers are suitable for lush armfuls of flowers with small stems.
Such products are suitable for heavy and lush bouquets. They look good flowers such as roses, freesia, chrysanthemums and peonies.
