Sending different flowers on different occasions.I personally think that the flower is the main course, and the bottle should not be overwhelming. Simplicity is always better.From my own experience, the most practical are two kinds of bottles: white porcelain bottles and clear glass bottles. The shape of the vase should be simple, not too high, and the bottle opening cannot be too small or too large.

1. Cylindrical VasesCylindrical vases are mostly tall, and many people think that they are not good for matching flowers. In fact, cylindrical vases are very easy to use.First of all, flowers with longer and harder stems are prefered.Peel off the unwanted leaves, cut all the flowers to a similar height, place the longest flower in the center and continuously insert other flowers around it.  Make sure to cover the gaps.

Recommended flowers: lily, rose, violet, gladiolus, calla lily, asparagus, winter plum, etc.

2. Trumpet Vase Arranging flowers in a flared vase requires certain skills, because its shape is too special and is not conducive to the overall structure of the bouquet, and it is suitable for flowers with medium size flowers.First remove the excess leaves and trim the flowers to a similar length. Start with a pair of leaves and the main flowers, and then arrange the flowers from each angle, so that the bottom of all the bouquets are pyramid-shaped, and pay attention to the color matching of different angles. Finally, tie the bouquet with a string and insert it into the vase.

Recommended flowers: rose, eucalyptus, gerbera, dahlia, peony, spring taro, maidenhair fern, etc.

3. Cone VaseConical vases are more suitable for flowers like lilacs with short stems and full flower heads, which can easily fill the vase.When arranging flowers, pay attention to forming a sharp corner at the bottom of the flower stem, and decorate the vase with some ivy or other leaves.

Recommended flowers: lilac, canna, ivy, etc.;

3. Regular VaseIt’s the most common one to be seen everywhere. But things that seem simpler are often more complicated. Compared with cone vases, this kind of vase requires more skill in flower arrangement.You can first trim the flowers to a similar height to make a bouquet without tying the stems, so that it can absorb more water, and then put the bouquet into the bottle.

6. Square flowerThe square vase has its own playful properties, which is very suitable for hydrangea which has a large and dense spherical flower head, and can form a sharp contrast with the square vase. Cut the flower stems and the flowers can be placed in the vase. Don’t throw away the trimmed leaves. Put them around the vase to make the whole work look fuller and no longer single.

Recommended flowers: Hydrangea, sunflower, Dutch green onion, peony, sunflower, etc.;

7. Pot-shaped flowerThe pot-shaped vase looks more casual and simple. Ceramic pot-shaped vases are easier to arrange flowers, because you can’t see the flower stems, but only the flower heads.

Just insert it into the vase, which is very simple and practical.

9. Mini Vase Mini vases can also be replaced with jam jars and water cups at home. Because of the small space, creating a loose and uneven atmosphere is especially important. Such exquisite mini vases usually appear in multiples at the same time, placed on the dining table or other locations, which make It more beautiful than a single vase. There are also many flowers to choose from, just keep a lot of stems and complete flowers. Note that you can use a variety of flowers and leaves to create a sense of layers.
