5. Coffee or tea?
Fill that antique silver coffeepot you snagged at a flea market with
fresh roses, or tuck a little bouquet of tulips in that hand-me-down
porcelain teapot. Teapots in particular tend to be fairly short, and
work best as vases when the flower stems are cut quite short.
6. Pretty as a pitcher
Both ceramic and glass pitchers or jugs make perfect flower containers
because they tend to have fairly small openings that prevent your
bouquets from spreading out too much. My 1920s/1930s water pitcher –
the one with the sketchy bright orange glaze – doesn’t get much use
as a water dispenser, but its cheery tangerine hue and cute round
shape make it a perfect match for big, bright flowers.
7. The (watering) can- can
They’re not just for potted
those made of galvanized aluminum or copper, make charming
flower vases as well. Cute, cheap,
watering cans are readily available at Target and
IKEA. And, when they’re not housing flowers, they’ll make it heaps
easier for you to keep your houseplants alive – no more dripping
water all over your woodwork as you attempt to pour a tumbler full of
water into the pot!
