"I don't use vases for flower arrangements. Instead, I find quirky things to put flowers in, like a grouping of trophies. I also save all kinds of old glass vessels—mustard jars, glass beer or tequila bottles — I soak the labels off, and they become the perfect thing to hold flowers because they're low and your guests can still talk over the arrangements—even green weeds look great sticking out of them."
