Think Outside the Box

One of the first things that comes to mind when you think about flower arranging after the flowers of course, is the vase. After all, you can’t really have a flower arrangement without something for it to be arranged in. But don’t let your imagination be stymied by that traditional image of a glass vase.

I cannot tell you how many different things I’ve used when creating a flower arrangement for a client. The list is nearly endless. I’ve used just about everything from terra cotta pots, to plastic outdoor glasses, bowls and even golf shoes and jewelry boxes. And in some ways the item you use to hold your arrangements can be as fascinating and unique as the arrangement you create in it.

I would like to encourage you to think outside of the box when it comes to flower arranging containers. Besides vases, think about, dishes, ceramics, baskets, paper boxes, fabric covered boxes, tea cups, drinking glasses, cocktail glasses, in fact almost anything that can be used as a container can be used for a flower arrangement.
