I love having fresh flowers in our house. When anyone asks me what decorating tool I recommend for any space, the answer is always flower arrangement displays. They bring a beauty and freshness to a space that no other thing can!
Throughout the last four years, I’ve experimented with a lot of floral displays. While there’s always the option of putting flowers in a vase, there are so many other fun vessels out there!
How To Display Flowers At Home
Here are some of my favorite vessels for flower arrangements:
1. Flower Pots
Sure, flower pots are really made for planting flowers with dirt and such. But, there’s no reason you can’t put fresh flowers in a flowerpot, too!
This white pot from Ikea is one of my favorites. I use it for everything from flowers to pens to utensils and more! Just make sure your pot doesn’t have a draining hole, otherwise, your water will leak out all over the place.

2. Mason Jars
Mason jars really can do it all! You can make jam in them, drink out of them, make salads in them, and put flowers in them. They’re probably the most versatile piece on this list!
3. Votive Candle Holders
So, technically these are meant to have candles in them. But I often trade the candles for small bunches of flowers and fresh greenery in votive candle holders like these.
As you can see in the photos below, I tend to do multiple smaller arrangements. I prefer doing this rather than one large arrangement in some cases, especially on the dining table.
It gives you more visual bang for your buck.
4. Vintage Bottles
I picked these old bottles up at a flea market for $2 each and they have quickly become some of my favorite decor. They’re a great way to dress up our table and different areas in our house.
5. Serving Bowls
Chances are you have a bowl (or 50) in your home. I’ve used all kinds of bowls to display small, round arrangements.
This set of footed bowls are perhaps my favorite though—both separately and stacked together. Check out a similar bowl here!
Even if these are also technically made for holding candles and such, there’s no reason why you can’t also use these for a dual purpose. They are great for displaying beautiful bunches of flowers.
7. New Bottles
While vintage bottles are definitely my favorite. However, if I come across an unusually shaped bottle somewhere, it might get tossed into my cart. I can then rinse and remove the label and add it to my glassware collection.
8. Baskets And Mugs
I love the texture and fun color that using baskets, mugs, and glasses can bring. Of course, if you use a basket, make sure you have a container that will fit inside it so you can give your flowers water!

9. Champagne Buckets
Best for last? Possibly. I used to think there wasn’t anything that could look better in a champagne bucket than champagne. But, after placing these beautiful blooms in here, I’m not certain that’s the case! 🙂
