Flower vase types for every bouquet

When shopping for a flower vase, it’s important to note that there are a number of varieties available. They come in all shapes and sizes depending on your needs. They are also available in various materials and colours. Here are some of the most popular vases you will find.

Classic vases

A classic style flower vase is clear in colour with a full base and narrow neck. It should be about 8 inches tall and the diameter at the top should be about 4 inches. This is the perfect option for traditional arrangements, mixed bouquets and even larger bunches that include a single type of bloom.

Cube styles

Cube shapes are excellent for modern décor. They are also ideal for blooms with shorter stems. You can set this type of flower vase on your coffee table or end table. It can be filled with just about any type of compact bouquet. It is not suited for larger bunches.

Cylinder shapes

This type of flower vase is usually larger in size and ideal for blooms like sunflowers, snapdragons and exotic blooms like lilies. It is also great for modern settings and you can find them in just about every colour.

Bud vases

These are the smallest of all designs and they are perfect for moments when you receive a single stem or when you have a bloom that does not fit in your bouquet due to a shorter stem. You can even pluck a perfectly pretty flower from your bouquet and place it in a bud vase while the rest are set in a classic or cylinder vase.

Ceramic designs

Ceramics were very popular for a number of years. Some have more intricate designs than others and some are decorated with amazing patterns. The design and shape you choose will depend on the bouquet as well as the rest of the décor in the room.

These are just a few options you should consider when it comes to a flower vase for your next bouquet. Always ensure that you avoid squeezing your stems into a vase. It is better to split a large bouquet in two so that your blooms don’t end up getting crushed.
