Not Every Flower Needs a Vase

By Roger Hazard

Traditional crystal vases are beautiful, but they aren't always a fit in a more casual room. Mixing up the containers for your flower or greenery arrangements can make for a fresh, fun look.

In the example above, I used a white ceramic jar that continues the bright white theme of this bedroom. Note how, by using a simple container that fades away, the greenery jumps out atop the side table.

In the example below, I used a simple cereal bowl. I trimmed the stems back far enough that only the blossoms are visible, making this kitchen table arrangement quite compact. Low arrangements like this are ideal for tabletops, as they do not block the view of the person sitting across the table. They're also less likely to get knocked over, making them a bit more kid and pet-friendly.
