There are few things better than dressing up your home with beautiful fresh flowers. Flowers add instant charm and color, brightening the simplest space and cheering even the dullest day. According to Bloomex, Canada’s largest florist, if you are lucky enough to receive a fresh flower bouquet, you can add a unique twist and even more impact by choosing a creative container to display them in. Best of all, many amazing options are probably right in your own kitchen! Think outside the box or enhance a decorating theme with an interesting choice.
1. Sweet and Traditional
If you receive beautiful roses or a bouquet of sweet mixed blooms such as snapdragons, alstroemeria or adorable daisies, consider setting them in a pretty teapot. If you are hosting a brunch, according to Bloomex you could even consider taking the bouquet apart, trimming the stems, and displaying your flowers on a vintage cake stand. A cake tin, a cookie jar, a pitcher, anything you can make watertight is an option.
2. Modern Elegance
For bouquets with a more modern edge, such as a monochromatic display of lilies or carnations, get creative with clear plastic boxes, simple rectangular containers that have clean lines, and consider containers with metallic finishes such as gold or silver.
3. Boho Chic
If you love “shabby chic” design, displaying your bouquet in a watering can, tin pail, birdcage or bucket is a great way to reinforce your theme. Hydrangeas and baby’s breath would be well suited to this kind of look. In the spring, even a pair of pretty rain boots make a creative container!
4. Divide and Conquer
According to Bloomex, another wonderful way to display your flowers is to separate the bouquet into a series of smaller bud vases, wine glasses, teacups or anything else that appeals to you.
5. Edible Inspiration
Another kitchen-inspired way to display your flowers involves using food items. Set a smaller vase, a watertight, cleaned-out soup can, or any other watertight container inside a watermelon or pumpkin and you have instant “wow” factor! Add slices of lemon or lime to a clear vase, pitcher or other clear containers to add a designer look to your bouquet for a low budget.
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box! A quick search around your kitchen or home can yield amazing new ways to make your flowers fit your taste and personality, and amplify the beauty of your bouquet.
