Vessels for Party Flowers—Think Outside the Box

Posted on July 27, 2021 by Andrea Forsberg

Planning parties or weddings can be both fun and stressful. Here at Flower Works, we like to help with the fun part while relieving the stressful parts.

Are you planning a get-together soon and looking for more fun ways to decorate? Centerpieces and flowers are great ways to liven up any party table—and the best part about them is that you can get creative with them. Here are some of our favorite ways to think ‘outside of the box’ when it comes to what you are putting your flowers in.

Fun Things to Put Your Flowers In

There is a wide variety of different, creative vessels that you can put your flowers in, and even more when you think about recycled options. Here are some creative centerpieces and recycled vessel ideas for your flowers:

  1. Vintage Coffee Pots

Older, metal coffee pots make beautiful vases for flowers. These can easily be thrifted and give a nice, rustic look to your table.

  1. Recycled Jars and Bottles

Some other fun vessels to put your flowers in are recycled jars and bottles. Mason jars are great because they come in a variety of different sizes and you can fill the insides with other decorations, too. Old soda bottles also make a cute, rustic decoration for flowers on tables.

  1. Clay Pots

Clay pots give a beautiful, hand-made touch to your decorations. The bright colors and sophisticated details can make great centerpieces and flower holders. They’re also nice because they can come in a variety of different sizes and can be commonly found in many stores.

  1. Wicker Baskets

Baskets of any size are another fun way to set up a centerpiece or main decoration at your party. You can fill up the basket and depending on what you want, sometimes even close it to have flowers hanging out. Baskets are simple, cute options for your centerpieces.

  1. Footed Bowls

Footed bowls are another great vessel to put your plants in. These can be found at common stores and even thrifted. They present a much more elegant feel and give your decorations a bit of a step up. These are a great way to make a food table livelier.

  1. Pitchers

Pitchers can be found in a multitude of shapes, colors, and sizes, making them a great alternative to a regular vase. Many people love to follow the theme of same, but a little different, and thrifting multiple different kinds of pitchers for your flowers would give you just that.

  1. Stained Glass

Any sort of stained-glass jar, bottle, or holder makes such a beautiful vase for flowers. The touch of color with the bit of transparency lets your flowers shine while still having a cute vase as the foundation of your piece.

  1. Tea Kettles

Another cute, rustic method of holding your flowers is in your old tea kettles. These are the perfect sizes to hold a good amount of water and also keep your plants thriving for a good amount of time. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, letting you customize a bit, too!
