There are so many great vases on the market in black and white colors that it was hard to narrow down the choices for this roundup. Even now, I'm having a hard time deciding which one is my favorite.
Let's start by highlighting the Kate Spade New York Japanese Floral Vase ($90, middle row, middle).The lovely, fan-like pattern is from Australian artist Florence Broadhurst. I can imagine it beautifully offsetting a clustered arrangement of purple and yellow calla lilies.
For a more unusual arrangement, try the Barnacle Tube Vase ($160, bottom row, middle left). Add a single bloom to each of the cylindrical openings in this handmade, white-glazed ceramic vase. To showcase the sculptural look of the vase, use smaller, contained flowers, such as rosebuds. Or, to camouflage the shape a bit more, pack if full of more boisterous blooms, like hydrangeas.

I always look forward to Sweet Paul's Crafty Friday posts, but I flipped when I saw his cozy little knit vase. As Paul points out, practically everyone has an old sweater with some sort of defect and a vase laying around the house. Instead of wasting money and time hunting for all of the necessary bits, just take a look through your sweater bins and cabinets to prep for this ridiculously easy DIY. Place the vase in the arm of the sweater, and leave a couple of extra inches of sweater material from the bottom of the vase. Fold the two inches of fabric, and you end up with the cutest Winter vase. Thanks Sweet Paul!
