Play with Scale
Add a sense of drama by pairing very different sizes of blooms in ordinary containers, such as this small ceramic water cup and antique metal canister.
Flowers to Try
A single large Dutch hyacinth dwarfs petite blue and white grape hyacinths and ethereal sky-blue Jacob's ladder, an early-blooming perennial.
Good to Know
Cut bulb flowers are heavy drinkers: Top off the water level or, better yet, change the water entirely every day when using these small vases.
