Updated on March 20, 2011

The Infinite Variety Of Glass Vase

A glass vase is a decorative container used for holding flowers and other floral items, but they are also used to hold perfume or potpourri or for any variety of inventive and imaginative uses in your home's decor. Glass vases come in an abundance of sizes and shapes: They can be funny cube shaped pots, tall, narrow, or timeless cylinder shapes. Over sized glass vases are often used for dramatic fruit or floral displays.

Elegant glass vases are great for displaying flowers but can be a sculptural element on their own as well. Arranging flowers in a vase with colored marbles is also attractive. A glass vase with a stunning arrangement of flowers is a perfect gift for a birthday, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, or any other occasion.
