small vase - big effect

When arranging flowers, I always set at least a flower by side to put in a one of my mini vases. I like the contrast between small and big, and I think that a single flower or a very small bouquet can be very pretty.I have quite a collection of mini-vases, I bought some of them when I was travelling (Copenhagen, Japan) or from flea markets.  Those don't have to be designed to be a vase. I use a lot of antic glasses. For example colored glasses are very cool - especially if they match the colour of the flower you are presenting. They are very handy to transport (or bring back when you travel) and that they look very pretty on display as a collection when they are not in use. Here is a selection of my last mini-bouquets. Even big flowers like peonies, look fantastic when they are cut very short.
