Greek Vase Ideas

Greek vases come in a variety of shapes and colours that make them suitable vessels for a plethora of flower arrangements. You can use natural clay-coloured geometric Greek vases to house red-toned blooms or wildflowers. Use Greek vases with an Oriental influence to showcase lotus flowers or orchids. Take advantage of the drama of black and red Greek vases by filling them with white or pink flowers. Be sure to match your flower arrangements to the shape of your Greek vase, using short-stemmed flowers to fit broad, shallow vases and setting off Amphora vase shapes with overflowing bouquets.

All-White Flower Arrangements

Greek Vase Ideas

No matter what type of Greek vase you want to arrange your flowers in, an all-white arrangement should highlight the quality and detailing of your Greek pottery. Fill broad-mouthed Kantharos or Kylix Greek vases with white mophead hydrangeas or overblown white roses. When choosing flowers for double-handled Amphoras and Loutrophoros Greek vases, use trailing white flowers, such as white orchids or jasmine. House white sweet peas in Oinochoe Greek vase pitchers, or fill Psykter Greek vases with white lilacs.

Arrangments for Geometric Greek Vases

Geometric Greek vases can be distinguished by their band and maze designs. They generally come in black and gold shades, which you can set off with jewel-toned flowers or highly-textured bouquets. Stuff Kantharos and Kylix vases with overblown red peonies or roses. Spotlight the leafy delicacy of maidenhair ferns by placing them in Amphora and Oinochoe pitchers. Fill a Krater Greek vase with a riot of wildflowers such as bachelor's buttons, poppies, daisies and primroses.

Arrangements for Oriental-Greek Vases

Oriental-Greek vases, so-called because their designs utilise Egyptian and Persian mythical elements, come in ochre, umber and beige shades. You can highlight the elaborate design of these vases by filling them with simple bouquets. Try not to use too many colours or textures, as this will detract from the beauty of both the flowers and the vases. Fill a tall Lekythos Greek vases with a single spray of pink gladiolas, or mound shallow vases with pale pink lotus flowers or light green ranunculus.

Arrangments for Black and Red Greek Vases

The classic Greek vase type, black and red -- or Archaic Greek vases -- typically feature dramatic scenes in red rendered over a black background. For a shockingly elegant presentation, fill broad-mouthed Kantharos and Kylix vases with your favourite hot pink mums. Give orange day lilies a suitable setting with tall Lekythos Greek vases. If you've got an empty Amphora or Loutrophoros Greek vase, pile it thickly with a shock of white calla lilies.
