Finding novel ways of decorating your home with flowers is part of the fun. Although using old boots instead of vases to hold flowers is not a new idea, it's cute and it can save you from spending loads of money on decoration. 

Bring some contrast

Picking the right spot to place your flowers can make all the difference. Choose a part of the house that has plain tones and could use a bit of colour. Add a bouquet of multi-coloured flowers to the space and bring some contrast to the setting.  

Glass flowers

Pictured here, we see a beautiful row of glass flowers in various colours. This can be a good alternative to using fresh flowers or plastic flowers, especially if you don't like your flowers dying on you or prefer something permanent and convenient. 

The lovely glass flowers pictured here are designed by Atlantic Designer Glass, artists and artisans in Mumbai, India. 

Employ potted plants

If you're more of the gardener type, you might want to employ potted plants with flowers. This way you don't have to keep replenishing your supply of fresh flowers, and it's also more rewarding watching the flowers bloom. 

Floor vases

Often times tables and shelves tend to be preoccupied with stuff, leaving not much place for a big vase or a planter full of flowers. In situations like this, floor vases are an excellent idea. They also bring more attention to the floor space which is usually neglected. 

A single flower

Sometimes all you need is one single flower to brighten up a space. This works well if you're decorating a side table in the bedroom or in the hallway. So instead of having a bouquet of flowers all in one place, you can disperse the lovely flowers all over your home.

Coordinate colours

Coordinating colours creates a sense of harmony in a space, even when it comes down to the small details like flowers on a table. Pictured here, we see a dining area in shades of blue which is coordinated perfectly with the blue and violet flowers on the dining table.

Above the mantel

The mantel is a classic place to decorate with flowers. Since it's in the center of the room, the flowers will serve as a focal point. Furthermore, if the mantel is mirrored like the one pictured here, it will cast a reflection of the flowers, enhancing their presence and appeal. 

Representing flowers

Pictured here, we see a creative way of representing flowers. Instead of using plastic flowers or glass flowers, decorative ceramic beads are placed in a vase and used in place of flowers. This creates a more artistic look. 

Place flowers against a matching backdrop

Pictured here, we see a perfectly matching backdrop for the flowers on the bedside table. Here you can see how a suiting backdrop can enhance a vase of flowers and add to the central theme of the space.
