Decorative vases provide a beautiful home for your fresh or faux flowers. They also come in a variety of shapes and sizes that you can choose from. There are vases made of different materials such as glass, ceramic, porcelain, clay, rattan, and non-rusting metals like aluminum, brass, bronze, or stainless steel.

Instantly liven up any room or add some accent to your decor with a flower arrangement in a vase. The following video can give you some ideas on matching different containers to different flower stems.

When choosing your vase, consider the length of the stems as well as the colors and sizes of the flowers you’ll use. You can stick to a palette of similar hues, or use complementing colors to come up with striking designs.

There are different types of vases to choose from:

Tall and narrow

Slim-necked and elegant, tall vases are best paired with flowers that have long stems and large heads such as roses and sunflowers. You can add picks, leaves, and other greenery to create a bountiful display.

Short and stout

Often used as a base to support small foliage such as succulents or delicate flowers like violets, short or box vases are ideal for displaying on most tabletops, mantels, and counters. Adding other materials such as candles, pebbles, or shells can give a unique look to your arrangement.


The classic fishbowl shape makes your flower arrangement appear fuller as they spill over the brim of the vase. This type of bowl can be used to display orchids, daisies, mums, and flowers that have rigid stems for stronger support. Others feature designs that give the illusion that they hold water, giving the container a stylish and charming look.
