3 easy tips to arrange flowers in a book vase

So you've just bought a beautiful acrylic book vase inspired by your favorite book. But now you're wondering how to arrange flowers in it?
A book vase is a unique vase that is designed to look like a book. It has a narrow, long opening that can make it difficult to choose and arrange flowers. But don't worry, I'm here to help! In this blog post, I will share 3 easy tips for arranging flowers in a book vase:

1. Use at least 2 types of flowers

Choose one main flower and one secondary flower.
The main flower should have small, soft stems or be light in color. Some good examples include tulips, daisies, or peach blossoms.
The secondary flower should be small and easy to arrange. Some good examples include feverfew and vinyard song.

2. Use clear tape or a barrier to divide the opening of the vase

This will help you create sections for your flowers.
For acrylic vases, I recommend using clear tape to avoid scratching the vase.
For ceramic vases, you can use either clear tape or a barrier.

3. Add a few drops of dish soap to the water to keep your flowers fresh

Dirty water in a vase is a breeding ground for bacteria.
Bacteria will attack the stems of your flowers and cause them to wilt quickly.
Dish soap has antibacterial properties that will help keep the water clean and prevent bacteria from growing.

4. Add color to the water

For a unique twist, you can add food coloring to the water in your book vase.
This is a fun way to experiment and create different looks.
Just be sure to avoid using white flowers, as they may become discolored.
I hope these tips help you arrange flowers in your book vase. Be sure to experiment and have fun!
Bonus tip:
To make your flowers last even longer, you can cut the stems at a 45-degree angle and place them in a bowl of warm water for a few hours before arranging them in the vase.
