As a florist, vases are a vital element on my shelves probably next to scissors. The most versatile vases for weddings, events & general vase hire I find are my fish bowl vases.

In various sizes, they are; as the saying goes, simples! Easy to fill, easy to transport yet subtle enough to suit most settings & show off the flowers they house.

Most hand-tied floral arrangements in a fish bowl vase give a lovely abundant feel on the table, at the same time; allowing relaxed chat with the flowers being enjoyed rather becoming an annoyance.

These vases also work with bridal parties. I often suggest bridesmaids bouquets be used as table centres.

A few fish bowl vases dotted around a venue, enable a floral theme to carry through the day as well as rehydrating a thirsty bridesmaids bouquet until its taken home or given to a family member as a memento of the day.

Equally for home styling and gift flowers, a good sized bouquet already the vase has the perfect wow factor  as well as leaving no fuss as no cellophane is used. The only attention is to top up the water. All the rich rubies & purples glowing warmth and excitement

Not just one size, my Small fishbowl vases are often constantly in rotation.  Dishwasher to hire, small posies easily dropped in for an intimate dinner or party. A smaller size makes a colour theme in a smaller setting looser nestling amongst the table ware fuss free!
