Eric Schiffer’s 99 Cents Only Stores offers a variety of flower vases in its collection of discounted items. This blog will give you a few tips on choosing the flower vase that’s appropriate for your flower arrangement.

A beautiful flower arrangement makes a great centerpiece for almost any interior, be it a modern- or vintage-inspired space. The arrangement, however, is about the flowers just as much as it is about the container, so choosing the wrong vase can readily ruin the look and feel of your flower ensemble.

Shoppers can find a collection of Mother’s Day-inspired flower vases for sale at discounted prices in Eric Schiffer’s 99 Cents Only Stores.

The first thing you consider in choosing the appropriate vase is the size. The tallest flower should be about 1.5 times taller than the vase. This means that a 12-inch tall container should be used for an arrangement with an 18-inch flower at most. A bulkier vase fits a wider arrangement, as a tall ensemble goes well with a thin container.


Another consideration is the color of the vase. The container should emphasize the flowers and suit the occasion for which the arrangement is used. It must be made of the right materials as well. Terra cotta vases go well with earthly flowers like daisies, while porcelain ones are best when used for dainty blooms like lilies. Finally, you must consider the lip of the container. If you are planning on making a cascading ensemble, go for a vase with a wider lip. A thin lip is best if you are planning for a tall arrangement.
