If you love fresh flowers, but want to keep your costs low when it comes to blooms, choose a vase with a slender neck. This way, your vase can only accommodate individual blossoms, which will keep your spending to a minimum.
While you can definitely splurge on bud vases, there are also a number of economical choices available from retailers like Ikea and Target. I'm particularly loving these Stretch Vases ($25) from CB2, whose balloon bases and long, slender necks are perfect for showcasing a single stargazer or calla lily.
