|Sevres Porcelain Display Bowl, 19th Century. Available at Mousa Antiques|
Everybody loves to receive flowers on Valentine's day! They make the receiver feel special and spoiled, as well as brightening up the home on a mid-February day when spring feels very far away.
To really pack an extra punch with flowers, try creating a floral display with an antique vase. The vase will last far longer than the flowers, its display evolving with the seasons, and there are some beautiful period pieces to choose from.
Choosing a bouquet to match your antique vase is easier than you might think, as both complimentary colours and contrasts can work well. With a vase that is a beautiful work of art in its own right almost any type of flower can come to life.
