|A big, blue transferware vase that was a lucky thrift store find (on an old high chair thrown out by a neighbour)|
You definitely need a big vase. And you don’t need anything expensive to fill it. I gathered long stems of dill, their seeds in tones of brown and chartreuse for this, with a couple of not-yet-blighted branches from my corkscrew hazel. (I keep those on hand, as they make any ordinary bouquet look special.)
My large stoneware and saltware jugs are simple frames for bouquets of wildflowers. And I used to have a tall vase in clear glass, perfect when elegance is in order. Alas, it met an untimely end.
What large vase do you have that you love?
