9 Creative Ways to Display a Bouquet
Don't think you have a decorative vessel worthy of your pretty blooms? It's time to think outside the vase.
We start with this simple, sunny arrangement. Unused jam jars and glass containers in your kitchen work well as vases. Not to mention, glass jars won’t damage fabric or wooden surfaces the way terra-cotta pots can. Place cut blooms in water or transfer miniature potted plants, such as orchids or hellebores. Water the plants sparingly, and pour out any excess so they don't rot.
Size doesn't matter. Try snipping off only a few short-stemmed flowers. In this arrangement, the full petals of this 'Kwanzan' cherry are well matched with this hot-pink teacup. To prevent the taller pieces from flopping over the rim, try tying the stems together underneath the blooms.
These vintage containers can take on a modern look when used in floral design. Here, we filled one with roses, gomphrenas, and sweet peas. The tins are both watertight and shatterproof, so you don't have to worry about leaks or breakage.
