Pretty Vases

Updated on December 6, 2014

Pretty Vases

Pictured at the right are three of the many vases in my home. As you can see from just this example of my own collection, vases come in many forms and colors. Here we have a black teardrop vase, an ivory colored floral motif vase and an earthy brown traditional form.

You may think that a vase must hold flowers in it ... But that is not the case. A beautiful vase can provide a welcome accent in any room even if the vase is empty.

However if you want flowers in your vases, depending on where you live, you can find excellent varieties of both fresh and natural looking artificial flowers and floral arrangements to fill your vases. Have fresh cut flowers when the season or cost is right ... have a few different stems or arrangements of "silk" flowers to change your setting with your mood!

In this hub I'll show you some of the vast variety of pretty vases around plus offer some insights on the history and uses of vases.

This hub introduces the reader to what I consider to be pretty vases.
