How to Make Fruit & Flower Vases Centerpieces
by Ida Hsiang
Decorating your home is never an easy feat, made even more difficult with all the great styles of decor and furniture designs available these days. It seems once you've found a great sofa set, it's nearly impossible to then find a dining set and bedroom set and china set and the countless other home accessories that will all match each other perfectly. Sometimes, it's enough to make you wanna tear your hair out. An easy solution? How about finding home decor and furniture that are all the same color? Or more accurately, lack of color. Clear accessories for the home, as well as clear furniture and other home accents, are popping up all over the place. Not only will they surely match perfectly with all the other color-less pieces, but the see-thru aesthetic gives the home an ultra modern and futuristic feel. With everything from kitchenware to larger household items available in clear materials, it's easy to give your home a cohesive look and unique style. Plus, cleaning is a snap when you don't have to bust out the heavy vacuum cleaner or steamer and just need a box of Clorox wipes. The only downside? Since these super cool home accents are see-thru, no more stuffing the dirty laundry and other little messes behind the furniture when guests come over!
The forever-old custom of giving flowers as gifts would be a whole lot easier if you didn't have to worry about the glass vase not surviving the car ride over to the housewarming party you're attending. Vases usually aren't cheap, they break too easily, and they take up lots of precious storage room when you're too busy to keep them full of fresh-picked flowers. Apparently the masterminds behind the Vazu Foldable Vase had the same frustrations regarding flower-giving. The Vazu vase comes flat in its package and expands to form a sturdy, free-standing vase that you can fill with water and put on display with your flower arrangement. When you're finished, it re-folds easily back into its package for simple storage, and at only $4.99, you can afford to give it as part of a gift -- no broken glass and no lending out your grandma's old vase with the chance you'll never get it back! It even comes in a ton of colorful patterns that can coordinate with any bouquet arrangement.
