The weather in San Francisco has been beautiful lately. And, while I rationally know that it is only the first week of March, all of these beautiful days have got me thinking about Spring. One thing I love about Spring is the beautiful flowers that bloom in my neighbors’ front yards. I am the first to admit that I am not much of a gardener. But, my brown thumb doesn’t prevent me from appreciating other people’s efforts.
Since I can’t manage to grow any flowers in our yard, I am forced to purchase seasonal blooms. And, in my opinion, if you are going to buy yourself beautiful flowers you need a beautiful vase to display them. As was taking stock of my vase options, I realized that my selection is woefully deficient. Over the years, I have chipped and cracked many of my mid-size and larger favorites, so I decided to track down some potential replacements.
For mid-to large size arrangements, any of these would do nicely.
While, I’m am not personally in the market for one, If you are looking for a bud vase (or smaller bowl), look no further. These are my all-time favorites. I actually own two out of three below and if one of them should break, I’ll just repurchase it. That is how much I love them.
Happy (almost) Spring! Stop and smell the roses.
