TIPS ON STYLING BUD VASES

A bud vase you say? What is a bud vase exactly? A bud vase has a small, narrow opening to fit one to three single flowers or foliage stems (or a miniature posy). The opening is usually no more than 5cm wide, thus restricting the amount of flower stems that will fit, and also enabling the single stem to be well supported.

Win a $250 flowers gift voucher just for putting a flower stem in a vase you say?

Yep, that’s correct. It may sound like a no-brainer, but the beauty of a bud vase and the thought that goes into styling it for a photo does take skill. Take a look at the work of Japanese Ikebana master Toshiro Kawase and you will see what we mean.

The Vase is as Important as the Flowers

Get creative with your bud vase. Scout op shops and garage sales or rummage through nanna’s kitchen cupboard. Use this as the basis of your design, then select your flower stem and/or foliage from there.

Getting the Photo Just Right

You may have a lovely bud vase arrangement but your picture lets you down. Instagram offers lots of lighting/colour effects but you still need to get the background and composition just right. Take a look at these examples below – whether you opt for a plain background or a scene set up with ‘props’ to create an overall look is up to you!
