People order same-day flowers delivery for a variety of reasons, from celebrating a new addition to the family, to sending love, congratulations, condolences, and more. When we make flower deliveries in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, we often get asked the same question by recipients: “What should I put them in?” While it may be tempting to use the nearest and most accessible vase, we encourage you to choose the perfect vase for your bouquet. Here are some tips to help you make the best choice.

Tip 1: Choose a vase that complements the flowers and foliage.

Just as flowers come in different shapes and sizes, so do the best vases to use. The long-stemmed elegance of gladioli, lilies, and sunflowers are complemented by the structure and control of a column vase. On the other hand, the shorter-stemmed large-headed flowers of roses, hydrangeas, and peonies suit the voluptuous shape of an hourglass vase. Let nature guide you, but don’t be afraid to experiment. For example, roses in a rectangular vase can look stunning in a modern interior.

Tip 2: Choose a vase that matches the height of the stems.

When choosing the perfect vase for your flowers, consider the vase’s proportions in relation to the flower arrangement. As a general rule, the length of the flower stems should only be one and a half to two times the height of the vase.

Tip 3: Choose a vase with the right opening size.

The size of the vase’s opening is also essential. If it’s too wide, the stems won’t have enough support, and you risk losing the arrangement’s shape. If it’s too narrow, you’ll constrain the design and limit the flowers’ lifespan. The ideal opening size allows some movement while retaining the bouquet’s shape.

Tip 4: Choose a vase that suits the location.

Where you choose to display your bouquet will affect the vase’s suitability. If you’re placing it on a table, a smaller vase may be appropriate. However, if you have a big and abundant flower arrangement, you’ll need a larger vase and enough space to let it shine.

Tip 5: Choose a vase that you love.

Sometimes the most precious items in our homes are not the most fashionable or stylish. If you have an old vase that holds fond memories, use it and celebrate the memories with your new flowers. After all, the most important thing is to choose a vase that makes you happy.
