Whether you're arranging a fresh peony bouquet from the farmers' market or assembling stems from your own backyard, there's nothing like summer to inspire us to bring beautiful flowers indoors. A homegrown arrangement of fresh cut blooms can be as layered or fuss-free as you'd like; a simple all-rose bouquet and a layered variety of greenery and bright petals are just as pretty in our book. But among the blooms, the vessel that holds it all together is equally important, though sometimes overlooked.

Vases with lovely shapes, colors, and patterns can complement their eye-catching counterparts and provide just the right opening for the type of arrangement at hand. Working with peonies? Consider a wide-mouth vase for a big-dramatic grouping. Creating a large centerpiece for an event? You may need something tall so that your design isn't competing with your guests' ability to see each other and converse.

Above all, our most beloved vases are decorative and functional. They're pieces that brighten up a space even when they're waiting for their next set of blooms. Ready to start arranging? Here are some of our favorite vases that are sure to upgrade vignette corners, kitchen tables, and nightstands alike.
