As a stylist, I sometimes assume that everyone has an eclectic collection of vases lying around. Various-size vessels, from itty-bitty bud vases to statuesque urns, fill my space not because I want them, but because as a stylist I need them. Okay—maybe they’re nice to have around.
So last week while I was handing off some leftover branches to my next-door neighbors, only to hear they didn’t have an accommodating vessel—those thick wood stems would knock over their lightweight glass vases—it felt like the right time to round up our favorite heavy-duty options.
Your vase needs will likely be different depending on the greenery. While something more flexible, like olive branches, can be styled in a vase with a small opening, stiff stems, such as most fruit branches, will look better with a bit more room to rest diagonally. But whatever you buy or forage, there’s something for everyone (and every budget) among the 18 picks, below. The one thing they all have in common? They’re at least 14 inches tall—the height needed to keep most branch arrangements from toppling over.
Warning: Once you are used to branches on your kitchen table, you may not be able to live without them. Or maybe that’s just me.
