The 12 Best Vessels & Vases for Your Home

Our Favorite Pretty Pieces to Hold All of The Pretty Blooms

The best flower vases and vessels for your home via @waitingonmartha

One thing I’ve learned among other things from years on the WOM team is the beauty of amazing vases and vessels around the home.  I used to think a flower vase only ever meant a pretty glass bowl, but I’ve found that a whole world of options are out there.  Think antique pitchers, ginger jars, cache pots, deep planters and so much more. 

When building on your collection of the best flower vases and vessels, consider a variety of options to house flowers, foliage, greenery and herbs of all sizes.  I only recently have filled my need for more low-and-wide vases for the bunches of tulips I pick up at Whole Foods.  I only had tall, narrow options and that just wouldn’t do!. 

Check out a few of the best flower vases and vessels below.  We included a wide variety of styles and vibes that look just as pretty on your coffee table as they do on your bookshelf vignette.  And if getting fresh blooms isn’t in the cards this week and every week, these vases of faux peonies seen here, here and here are always, always a beautiful option too.  Cheers, Kat

14" Decorative Vase, Silver

One Kings Lane

Shop Now >

I’ve always loved the idea of pitchers as vases for flowers, especially when they have an antique feel to them.  (They’re also easy to find at an affordable price when found at vintage stores and estate sales!)  This decorative silver pitcher is a lovely option for a small bunch of wildflowers. 

10" Inverted Lambert Vase, White

One Kings Lane

Shop Now >

A slightly tapered vase like this is a must; it fits your taller flowers while centrally containing them.  You can never go wrong with a touch of gold, either.  This gorgeous white vase has a tasteful accent of shine. 

Black & Gold Bud Vase

Waiting On Martha Home

Shop Now >

A bud vase is an easy, and must have for any nightstand, bathroom and/or kitchen counter, and desk.  Of course I’m partial to our handmade black and gold or white and gold Honeycomb Studio vases which look beyond sweet with one simple stem also make the perfect gift!

Blue Willow Pitcher

One Kings Lane

Shop Now >

Here’s another beautiful pitcher that works as a simple vase in a second.  The blue and white chinoiserie details are timeless with a bunch of flowers like tulips, hyacinths and peonies. 

Kupio Handpainted Vase Set

These handpainted vases are anything but fussy; the imperfect lines and brush strokes lend a casual, minimalist vibe with a nod to the handmade.  The set works beautifully as accent pieces in vignettes on bookshelves, coffee tables and dressers. 

Vintage Hungarian Storage Jar, Large

Terrain

Shop Now >

Stunning in its simplicity, this large glass jar is a conversation starter…for what’s inside!  The reclaimed glass gives off a rustic feel, and allows a multitude of possibilities to grow inside.  I’m a huge fan of filling jars like these with succulents and moss,  but I also love to see tall branches and feathers inside them. 

Novus Bowl, Copper/White

One Kings Lane

Shop Now >

A roundup of vases and vessels would be incomplete without a sweet copper and white bowl like this one.  I’d fill this vessel with a succulent, and if/when I fail to keep it alive (it’s happened before, somehow), I’d use it as a catchall in my bathroom or on my nightstand.  Win-win!

Copper Geo Terrarium

World Market

Shop Now >

World Market wows us with great on-trend copper geo terrariums at a killer price. These guys look great on a bookshelf, coffee table, and just about everywhere.  Here’s a quick kit to get you started with your terrarium inside. 

Turned Wood Vessel

Anthropologie

This gorgeous recycled wood planter is another gorgeous option to showcase succulents and greenery at home.  The natural, rustic finish lends a vintage feel to the piece, and the 8.5″ diameter easily houses a lot of your favorite greens.

Blue & White Canton Collection Bud Vases

Waiting on Martha Home

Shop Now >

I’m a huge, huge fan of anything and everything blue and white, so I’m of course obsessed with blue and white bud vases.  This trio has been a bestseller in our shoppe for years, and is still one of my favorite ways to display sweet little blooms. 

Handpainted Bamboo Cachepot

Waiting On Martha Home

Shop Now >

I love a low maintenance pop of greenery so I’ve recently become obsessed with round topiary balls placed in a cachepot such as this handpainted bamboo one.  Available in numerous colors this cachepot would also be great for a small house plant or a major arrangement.
