I LOVE having fresh flowers in our house and if anyone asked me what the number one decorating tool I recommend for any space is, the answer would always be 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 floral displays and while there’s always the option of putting flowers in a vase, there are so many other fun vessels out there! Here are some of my favorite ways to display flower arrangements.
In a flower pot. Sure, these might be meant for planting flowers with dirt and such, but there’s no reason you can’t put fresh flowers in a flower pot! 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 all your water will leak out all over the place.
You can learn how to create a display like the ones below in this post on diy floral arranging.
In a mason jar. 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. It’s probably the most versatile piece on this list!
Votive candle holders. So, technically these are meant to have candles in them. But I often trade out the candles for small bunches of flowers and fresh greenery. As you can see in the photos below, I tend to like to do multiple smaller arrangements rather than one large arrangement, especially on the dining table. It gives you more visual bang for your buck.
Vintage bottles. I picked these old bottles up at a flea market for $2 each and they have quickly become one of my favorite ways to dress up our table and different areas in our house.
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. These three stacking footed bowls are perhaps my favorite though—both separately and stacked together.
Lanterns. Even if these are also technically made for holding candles and such, there’s no reason why you can’t also use these for the dual purpose of displaying beautiful bunches of flowers.
New bottles. While vintage bottles are definitely my favorite, if I come across an unusually shaped bottle in the grocery store it might get tossed into my cart. I can then rinse and remove the label and add it to my glassware collection.
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!
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! 🙂
