Find the Right Container

Choose one that accentuates the line, shape, and size of your floral composition. For example, a narrow cylindrical vase not only sets off long-stemmed blooms well, but it also provides support for more fragile flowers like tulips, Perez says.

"Cherry blossoms or Japanese dogwood make a striking display in a container that’s tall and wide.” A squat container with a wide brim is beautifully suited for packing in three or four varieties, such as peonies, roses, hyacinths, and hydrangeas. A single tea rose or a few sprigs of sweet pea or button ranunculus look at home in a bud vase.
