Vases

I love fresh flowers. One of my favourite things on my wedding ‘to do’ list was meeting with the florist to discuss my bouquet and the rest of the flowers for the day.

We’re planning on doing the table flowers incredibly simply – just lots and lots of frothy gypsophila in groups of mismatched, clear glass jars. Well, you already know I love glass jars, right?

At home though, I am partial to other flower receptacles like jugs and vases. And I’ve spotted some beauties in the shops recently.

These choker vases are beautifully simple and would work just as well with a full bouquet as with these individual blooms:

I do love the nostalgia of milk bottles, but it’s the great colour pairing and vintage font on this one that really drew me:

I don’t quite understand how anyone could justify spending so much money on an accessory, but I do love Venini’s range of simple, elegant vases:

These ceramic bottles aren’t strictly meant for flowers, but I think they would look gorgeous with some lush green ferns curling out of the top:

Pictures on vases can be a distraction from the main event – ie the flowers – but in this case, I think the simple motif would work really well:

I’ve already featured a couple of Rowen & Wren’s vases in this post last year, but they have a new range in that I just adore:
