I love arranging flowers to disperse throughout our home to enjoy daily as decor, when entertaining, or having overnight guests. I also really love a great vase that makes arranging flowers almost effortless.

Upon request, I’m sharing a few of my favorite vase ideas with you today! To be honest, I rarely invest in an expensive vase and sometimes even turn to something unconventional to use as a flower vase, but these standards are perfect for everyday flower arrangements.

Most of the vases I use are really inexpensive, coming in between $3-10! Rather than filling your cabinets with florist vases in undesirable or dated shapes, fill them with a few classics you can turn to for an easy last-minute flower arrangement.

What flower vase to use?

Some flower vases are easier to arrange in than others – I’m breaking down my favorites including a cylinder vase, small cylinder vase, bud vase, hurricane and more!

Cylinder Vase

A cylinder glass vase is timeless and classic and is the most versatile for a large flower arrangement without requiring an excessive amount of stems. It’s easy to work with. This vase is just $4.99 in stores at Target.

A short cylinder glass vase is also timeless, classic and easy to arrange in, but requires more flowers to fill it out. You can learn how to create a flower arrangement in a short cylinder vase here.

Hurricane Vase

Bud vases may be my favorite. Just a bloom or two in a bud vase can bring a room to life. These are a few of my favorites:
