Use a Vase on the Floor For an Unexpected Floral Arrangment

Cool Idea: Vase on the Floor

While paging through stylist Pia Jane Pijkerk's beautiful portfolio, I stopped to take a second look at this shot. While my eyes first stopped on the dapper dog sitting in the armchair, my attention almost immediately wandered to the oversize vase holding the roses. I love the idea of decorating with an oversize vase that doesn't need a tabletop to create a scene.

If you're interested in creating a floor-worthy floral arrangement, start with a good-sized vase, and then extend the height by using tall flowers such as gladiolas to create something statuesque. You don't have to spend a lot of money, either. Take Emily Henderson's tip and use branches instead of flowers, which are cheaper and last much longer than flowers.


For a tall vase that won't cost you an arm and a leg, head to a flea market, discount store, or Ikea to look for a vase two to four feet tall. This Stockholm Vase ($50) is totally chic, two feet tall, and very reasonably priced.
