• Five of the best summer vases

    We’ve picked five of our favourite vases for the summer. They are perfect for the fashionable informal arrangements all the top florists are favouring this year.

    Brass bud vase
    10cm x 10cm x 11cm. £21.

    Perfect for small groups of foliage and flowers or single buds.

    Chunky vase
    W22.86cm x H17.78cm x D6.35cm. £31.05.

    It was originally designed as the ideal vase for those gorgeously droopy tulips that look super cool in the spring time, but it actually suits all types of blooms. They all seem to fall the correct way in a Bliss. Freesias, roses and those vintage chrysanthemums look great in this style of vase too.

    Available in: Clear (shown below), amber (shown above) and smoke.

    Basso vase
    Small approx. H13cm. £40. Large approx. H21cm. £78.50.

    A contemporary, hand-crafted vase that is minimalist with panache. The small is available in: white, charcoal, soft yellow and tangerine (shown) and the large is available in: soft yellow, white or nickel grey.

    Alto vase
    Approx. H13cm. £36.75.

    This is a hand-crafted item that would suit both a contemporary, bijou urban pad and a cottage in the country. Great for single blooms or buds. Perfect for stunning informal arrangements. Available in: white, soft yellow, nickel grey or tangerine.
