How to Arrange Flowers in a Tall (Tower) Vase

There are many different types of tall vase but here we are concerned with “tower” vases. This is a specific type of tall vase which is a long, thin cylinder, usually at least a foot tall, sometimes as much as two or even three feet tall, and which comes in a variety of different coloured glasses and styles. Tower vases are good for putting in places where people gather and talk – for example at a dinner table or hotel reception area. This is because they are tall enough to place the flowers above head height, allowing people to converse without the flowers blocking their line of sight.

The first thing to do is choose the appropriate vase. As mentioned already, there are many different colours and styles so try to choose a vase which is suited to the occasion or location. Think about the style and design of the location as well as the people that you are expecting to attend.

Now fill the vase about 2/3 full with clean, fresh water. You can add a dash of bleach to keep the water from smelling bad and some fertilizer to keep the flowers nourished.

Next, select the flowers for your arrangement. Because you are using such a tall vase, it is important to use long-stemmed flowers! Roses are a good bet but you may be lucky enough to find long-stemmed lilies or even orchids. Choose the colours carefully as they must fit not only with the vase you have selected but also with each other, as well as the location of the vase and the style of people! If you can’t find a decent selection of fresh flowers then consider using artificial flowers, particularly if the arrangement is a permanent one (eg in a hotel reception).

Now think about what shape you want your arrangement to be. You can choose to have some greenery in there to frame the flowers or just a simple arrangement with no greenery. Also think about whether you want all the flowers to be at the same height or to be at different heights – this all depends on whether you want the arrangement to be eye-catching and stunning or to simply blend into the background and add a nice touch to an already beautiful setting. Of course it also depends on how many flowers you actually have!

Begin arranging by cutting the stems to the appropriate length, depending on how high you want the flowers to stand. Cut the stems at an angle and get rid of all the thorns, leaves, etc so they do not spoil the water. Put the taller flowers in first, followed by the shorter ones and do not be afraid to change the final result if it’s not pleasing or even to remove some flowers if it looks too cramped.
