What we love about using these tall vases is that they showcase whatever you fill them with—whether bunches of flowers or single blooms, with candles or without. You can even tailor the effect to suit your theme, such as surrounding the groupings with more votive candles; adding dried branches, shells, stones or driftwood; or even tinting the water your color of choice!

Petite Containers

For more intimate tablescapes, there are scaled-down versions of clear glass vases that can be used in dozens of striking ways. You can arrange them in a row down the center of your tables, group them in clusters of 3 or 5, and use varied heights for visual interest.
