In the market: The best in vases, pouches & pots
They say home is where the heart is, but it’s also where there’s a big bunch of flowers sitting on top of your kitchen bench.
Like most ladies, I enjoy a big bunch of flowers or a vibrant collection of greenery in my home. As cliche as this may sound, a bunch of flowers always brightens up any room. These days its not just about the flowers making the statement; the vase, pouch or pot and stand is just as important.
It’s time to forget what you have seen in the marketplace for vases. The new and improved is here, and we like it! Flowers naturally lend themselves to a vase but much to my dismay, a really special vase is a bit harder to find these days. Fortunately some of the best vase designers are right on our door step. For example Helen Bayley from Lovestar is your go-to-lady if you’re a lover of colour, celebs, glitter, confetti. It’s basically the mardi-gras version of vases.
Handcrafted by the team at Lovestar in their Australian studio comes the Iconic Portrait vases range. FRIDA is for the true lover of art and all things colour.
The Queen B of vases. The Beyonce Iconic Vase is also apart of the special Limited Edition Series of Iconic Portrait vases. Beyonce sits pretty at 25cm tall and 26cm wide and can be hung on the wall or sit up right.
When colourful flowers aren’t enough, the Queen of Hearts Confetti Heart Vase will be your glittering final touch. Newest to the collection, this vase is full of real life confetti!
Pouches are among one of the new-comers to the market for flowers and plants. You could say they have seriously grown in popularity of the past 12 months, often showing up in blogs and mags. The colours vary and you’re not just limited to just plants; use your pouch for nick-nacks or even a cute recycling bin.
This mother/daughter duo are the face behind Miss Pots and have made a living from their passion. Prices start from around $19.95 for a mini version and can go upwards of $59.95 for the largest size.
