Save the Vases!

We all love getting flowers, but we also know that flowers eventually wilt and must be thrown away or dried.  It’s sad when we decide that our flowers have reached the end of their lives, but just because you get rid of them doesn’t mean that you’re losing everything—don’t forget to save the vases!

Vases can be used for a number of different things.  The most obvious, of course, is to use them for other arrangements.  You can cut your own flowers to put in them or pick up a bouquet from a florist that matches the vase.  Either way, you can use a vase over and over.

But vases can be used for more than just flowers.  Some designer vases such as those that are shaped like a pumpkin or a Christmas tree ornament can be put out as decorates by themselves without any flowers in them.  Others can double as candle holders if you don’t mind getting wax in your vase.  If you have kids, you can use tall, thin vases for art projects.  Let kids fill them with colorful sand, for example, and then stop up the top (via a stopper or even by melting wax over it). 

Vases are often very beautiful, so why get rid of them?  Even if you don’t have a use for them, others might.  If you have a lot of vases that are simply taking up room in a cabinet, ask your friends and family members if they would like one.  If you still have a lot after this, you can donate them to your church or take them to a second-hand store.  No matter what you do with them, someone somewhere will get use out of your vases.
