If you are a flower lover, you may also be a vase lover. As long as you have the space to store them, I believe you can never have enough vases. It seems that each bouquet craves a certain texture or color. If you can’t seem to find the right vase it never hurts to check your glassware selection. And if you can use dishes for your flowers, why not use vases for your food?

At my recent Christmas party I used 4″x4″ cube vases for my veggies. It’s fun to present food in unexpected ways! And my daughter loved helping me fill these up too.

If you receive a lot of flowers as gifts, your cupboards may be filling up with vases you don’t know what to do with. I have friends and clients who return vases to me which is a great way of recycling. But think about other ways to recycle that vase. Give it a different use. A kitchen utensil holder, pen/pencil holder, use it to hold mail or keys. The list could go on! What do you do with your old vases, do you have any great ideas to share?
