Learn How to Match Flower Vases With Your Floral Arrangements
By Amy M Chan
Freshly cut flowers tend to make your living area look very nice. And a matching vase can further enhance its beauty. The flower arrangement and the vase should always complement or contrast one another. The flower vase must not be too multi-colored or very elaborate because it will take away from the beauty of the flowers.
<script type=”The height of the flower arrangement is also something that should be paid attention to. If the flowers are tall, then place them in tall flower vases. Basically, when you place the flowers inside the vase, the resulting height should be around one-half or two-third taller than the original height.
The colors of the vase should always be neutral and light such as white, cream, or pastel. The colors should be such that they bring out the beauty of the flowers. Brightly tinted ceramic and glass vases or crystal vases are not good for holding flowers since they are meant to be used for their own beauty.
The shape of the vase is another factor. There are four types of flower vase shapes. The traditional vases are wider at the mouth and are meant for profusion of blooms. Cylindrical vases are tall with straight sides. They are meant for roses and tulips. Flat vases are low and wide and are meant to hold cut flowers allowed to float in the water. Bottle flower vases have a narrow mouth. Delicate flowers such as cherry blossoms are suited for these kinds of vases.
You can store different kinds of flower vases in your home. This way you won’t have to worry about finding the right flowers for the right vase. You can get inexpensive flower vases at department stores. They are nice to look at and can match with your flowers. However, if you want to buy an expensive and decorative vase, you can go ahead and do that too. Just make sure that they do not clash with the flowers.
If you are using cut flower with your vases, then make sure that you always keep them clean. This will prevent the growth of bacteria that can harm your flowers and you.
