The golden rule for choosing your vase
You will obviously have to adapt your vase to the size of your bouquet of flowers. Keep this florist tip in mind: the vase you choose must represent around one third of the whole while the flowers represent the other two thirds. In other words: your bouquet should measure twice the height of your vase.
A conical vase
The shape of your vase is essential! Let's start with conical vases. What it is: vases that are wider at the top than at their base. The conical vases will be perfect for wild or romantic bouquets. Opening the vase will give your flowers some freedom.

As indicated by his name, a soliflore will be perfect for showcasing a flower - even two or three. Adapt the size of the stem to the height of your soliflore. Our practical advice? Think of the soliflore when your bouquet has lost its superb: throw away the damaged flowers and highlight the few survivors in your dashing soliflore.For what type of bouquet? The soliflore is not suitable for a bouquet of flowers, because of its size. But you can slip in dried flowers from a bouquet.
