Vase 101

DSC00705Here in New England, the peonies have bloomed, the hydrangeas are leafing up and snapdragons are just around the corner — perfect timing for a little tutorial from House Beautiful on the eight vases to have at the ready for gorgeous, simple summer arrangements:

  • Mugs
  • Trumpet-shaped
  • Collection of bud vases
  • Cylinder
  • Ginger jar
  • Pitcher
  • Footed bowl
  • Regular bowl

My go-to vase right now isn’t even meant for flowers…it’s an IKEA glass placed carefully into a small drawstring bag I picked up late last month at Les Toiles du Soleil in New York (I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with that little bag when I bought it, but I knew I had to have it!).

ps_logoPursuant to last week’s post on Les Toiles du Soleil, I am happy to report that Paper Source is carrying a small collection of the delicious striped canvas online!  So for those of you who won’t be making it to New York anytime soon, and aren’t too jazzed about ordering over the phone, you can order by the meter here!
