Decorating Your House Using Flower Vases
Freshly cut flowers tend to make your living area look very nice. And a matching vase can further enhance its beauty. The flower vases must not be too multi-colored or very elaborate because it will take away from the beauty of the flowers. The two main things to consider when choosing flower vases are the height and strength of the stems and size of the flowers. The number of flowers also plays a part; for example, displaying a single flower looks best in a bud vase. How the flowers are going to be displayed, plays a part in using a specific shaped vase. Choosing the correct vase allows the flowers to look their best. Evaluate the length and strength of the stems as well as the size of the flowers when choosing a flower vase. A bouquet of flowers with tall thin stems are best in a tall vase with an opening that curves inward so the delicate stems are braced. Flowers with strong, tall and thick stems typically look best in taller vases. A single flower with a tall stem, regardless of its strength, looks best in a bud vase.
When choosing flower vases, balancing the size and shape of the vase with the way the flowers are going to be displayed can accentuate their beauty. Rounded flowers, such as carnations and roses, often look best when displayed somewhat tightly packed and formed in a half-circle in a short to medium-sized rounded vase. Larger bouquets look best in a tall flared vase so it creates a wide display. Flowers that are cylindrical shaped and stand straight, such as tulips, look best in a cylindrical shaped vase.
