Head vase from Chiasso | Outline Vase from UncommonGoods | Curvy chrysanthemum vase from Anthropologie | Trinava vase from Alessi | Porcelain vase from Cynthia Vardhan | Peaceful Bomb Vase from Andy+Rose

So we all know that I’m not so great at growing plants, but that doesn’t keep me from bringing home beautiful bouquets of flowers from the farmer’s market during the spring and summer months. There’s no faster way to brighten up your home than with a bunch of ruffly peonies or cheerful tulips! Here are some fun vases to display your marvelous May flowers in – I can’t look at the first one without thinking “ch-ch-ch-chia!” Hehe.

    i adore interesting vases. the baby blue one is beautiful. i’m all for fresh flowers weekly if possible. right now we have sweet peas, tulips and orchids throughout the house. it just makes the space.

    I got flowers the other day and could not find a vase anywhere in my house! Looks like it’s time to buy a new one…I’ve got my eye on that Anthropologie one!

  6. Jackie | Sweet Little Thrills says:

    I’d like one of each… and make a little collection of them on the buffet in my dining room with fresh flowers all the time. What a happy sight that would be.

  7. I swear, there’s nothing better than fresh flowers in my house – I try to keep them around in the spring/summer to keep me cheery! Love these vases!

  17. So true… a vase of fresh flowers is like a face lift to any room/home! Love these super cool finds, Gloria!

    i couldn’t agree more – a few fresh flowers in the home makes everything better. i’ve been longing for a cute medium sized vase. we have tiny ones and huge ones, but something like those last two would be perfect. and i love that blue color of the anthropologie one. so so pretty!

  19. Epps! LOVE this round up…that granny head makes me giggle and would definately brighten my day should it live with me in my house :)
