One of the most important elements of floral design is also the most important supply – the vase! Because floral decor can get a tad repetitive, here’s eight unexpected flower vessels to shake things up!
1. Tea Cups and Tea Pots
This gorgeous arrangement via Style Me Pretty was designed by Kailey Michelle Events and photographed by Ameris. The dusty miller, roses and veronica make a romantic, yet simple arrangement that is sure to charm everyone who sees it. Use a small piece of floral foam inside the teacup to keep flowers hydrated and correctly positioned. This is extremely easy and creates high impact, absolutely perfect for keeping in budget while creating style and personality.
2. Apothecary Bottles are a fascinating piece of history, and easy to incorporate in a rustic or vintage theme. This design from Weddings Unveiled was photographed by Sarah C. Photography. It is important to keep in mind that diversity and differentiation in vases will keep your tables interesting! What a perfect excuse to take the bridal party antiquing for a day. These arrangements use just a few stems of stock, asters, spray roses and spider mums.
3. This Vintage Flour Sifter is a surprising vase choice, but look at how lovely it is filled with gypsophilia (baby’s breath)! The aged metal adds a very natural feel. Found on Style Me Pretty these arrangements were designed by CountDown Events Planning and Design and photographed by Tamiz Photography. Use a floral liner to keep water inside the sifter. We also love the antique wood planter on the left!
4. Vintage Tins provide the ultimate charm, and they come in so many different shapes and colors! These tins perfectly compliment the flower choices of garden roses, stock and seeded eucalyptus – notice how the reds pop!

5. These Wooden Vases from Style Me Pretty were created by Todd Events and photographed by Perez Photography. Make your own vases by harvesting loose (only loose!) birch bark from birch trees. Wrap the bark around a glass vase or tin can and secure with twine. The dianthus and succulents used in this arrangement are the perfect compliment!
6. Vintage Boxes and Planters are extremely popular because they often have quaint writing or gorgeously aged wood. The dahlias, roses, stock and seeded eucalyptus in this arrangement could easily compliment the utmost formality and style, but the simple wood planter adds a simple, earthy elegance. Found on Style Me Pretty, the arrangement was designed by Aria Floral and photographed by Caroline Ghetes Photography.
8. Wooden Barrels
From Style Me Pretty, this arrangement was designed by FleurEssence Floral Design and photographed by Jessica Burke Photography. The hanging amaranthus, stock, hypericum, dahlias, hydrangeas and roses are absolutely lovely!
