White flowers are a versatile choice for any occasion, but choosing the right vase color can make all the difference. In this blog post, we'll explore three ways to choose the perfect vase color for your white flowers: by mood, by style, and by arrangement.

Choosing the right color vase

In principle, white flowers match any color vase. The only question is: which color do you choose? There are several methods to help you pick the right one.

Color picking: by mood

Choose a vase color that complements the mood you want to create. For example, choose a bright and colorful vase if you create a cheerful and inviting atmosphere. If you want to create a more sophisticated and elegant atmosphere, choose a vase in a neutral tone or with a metallic finish.

Neutral combinations

  • Black vase with white flowers: This combination exudes elegance and timelessness. It effortlessly matches your interior, be it modern, minimalist, or classic rustic.
  • White vase with white flowers: White is associated with simplicity and elegance. A white vase and white flowers can, therefore, create a sense of elegance and class.
  • Beige vase with white flowers: This duo enables a warm and balanced ambiance. Earthy beige tones wonderfully complement both light and dark settings.
  • Gray vase with white flowers: This pairing creates a clean and serene mood. It's your go-to choice if you want to highlight your floral arrangement subtly.

Colorful combinations

  • Blue vase with white flowers: This 'cool' combo evokes a peaceful and familiar feeling. When paired with white flowers, it gives your space a serene and relaxing vibe.
  • Red vase with white flowers: This duo fosters a warm and passionate ambiance. Opt for a red vase if you aim for an eye-catching display.
  • Yellow vase with white flowers: This vibrant pairing sparks a bright and cheerful mood. The sunny yellow accentuates the flowers, making it a fantastic addition to light spaces.
  • Green vase with white flowers: This combo adds a fresh and natural feel to your surroundings. The green shade matches with almost any flower, effectively inviting the outdoors in.

Color picking: by style

Choose a vase color that complements your current décor. For example, if your décor is modern and minimalist, choose a vase with a simple and clean design. If your décor is more traditional, choose a vase with a more ornate design.

Each person has their own unique style and aesthetic preferences. Some may prefer neutral tones, while others may opt for bold and vibrant color combinations that create a striking contrast.

Take a moment to review the style and color scheme of your home.

Remember, there are no hard and fast rules about aesthetics. The most important thing is to choose a color that speaks to you and brings you joy.

Color picking: by arrangement

Another method for finding a vase color for your flowers is to decide what flower arrangement you want to showcase. Here are some tips for each type of floral display.


A flower bouquet with white flowers gives you several options. Either go for a complimenting color, a contrasting color, or a color that matches the theme of your space. For a classic and elegant look, choose a vase in a neutral color, such as clear glass, white, or gray. This will allow the white flowers to take center stage. For a more modern look, choose a vase in a bold color, such as black, navy, or emerald green. This will create a striking contrast with the white flowers.


For centerpieces, you can choose a vase color that complements the overall color scheme of your table. For example, if you have a white tablecloth and red napkins, you could select a vase in a red or white color. If you have a patterned tablecloth, you could choose a vase in a solid color to avoid clashing patterns.

Single-stem arrangements

Want to highlight the grace of a single white flower? Bud vases are your solution! For a minimalistic look, a beige or white vase is perfect. Try a blue, green, or yellow vase with a distinctive shape or texture to introduce a colorful hint.

Get started

No matter your floral arrangement, the right vase color can elevate it to a new level. Experiment with different colors and styles to find the perfect vase to complement your flowers and create the desired atmosphere in your space.
