When creating flower arrangements the first thing to select is the container. Floral arrangements are much more than flowers placed into a clear glass vase. The container should be just as important as the material to be placed inside.
Consider shape, color, size and scale of the container selected. Also choose the material the container is made of - wood, glass, or metal - the possibilities for unique vessels to create in are limitless. Most of all, be just as creative with the container as with the flowers. When the floral design is finished it should be a unique composition and become a piece of artwork in itself.
