Wall vases for displaying your flowers
When we think about displaying flowers in our homes, we usually imagine using tall or round vases set in the middle of a table or even on a corner table. What many people don’t think about is the option to use wall vases! These vases are great for so many reasons. If you have never used one before, here are some ideas and tips.
Shop for a wall vase
There are a number of different styles of wall vases available. All you need to do is shop around. Some of them can be secured directly to the wall with screws while others are held in place by wooden or metal holders. Another great idea is to recycle an old wine bottle and secure it to the wall using an appropriate support. Like regular vases, the ones you fit to your wall are available in different sizes so you can shop according to the space you have available.
Wall vases are available in various sizes but, for the most part, they are smaller than your average table vase. This is why they are ideal for smaller areas that are otherwise difficult to decorate. Some are designed for bud flower arrangements (they only hold a single stem) while others may hold a mini bouquet.
Great for small spaces
Some of the best areas for displaying wall vases include entrance halls, hallways, bathrooms and even in your kitchen. For those with pets or small children, this type of vase is ideal because you don’t have to worry about your pets or children accidentally knocking over the vase.
Use leftover stems
Another great use for wall vases is to display any stems leftover from another arrangement. If one or a few of the flowers in the bouquet have damaged stems, you can trim them and place them in this holder to brighten up another room in your home. If you have just a few blooms in your garden and they aren’t enough to create a full bouquet, you can place them in a display on a wall in one of the rooms in your home.
As you can see, wall vases allow us to really think outside the box when it comes to floral designs. If you want to give your wall flower arrangement some extra height, add some foliage too. Filler flowers like baby’s breath can also help fill the vase and give the design extra texture without overcrowding the stems.
