With Spring happening all around us, it's easier than ever to be inspired to fill the house with plants and flowers. We've rounded up our favorite vases and containers to fill with fresh blooms under the jump, all for less than $25:
Try looking around the house for bottles and unusual shaped containers. Gregory rounded up his favorite reusable containers
and we couldn't agree more. The best arrangements happen, for us, on the spur of the moment when we grab that jar that we always used for pasta, and now it's got a handful of ranunculas.
White looks crisp and clean against some wild blossoms (maybe sweet peas or some wild flowers). We love these sleek vases from each $16.

Balance the white on the table with a sweet little bird vase
from Target, $19.99.
These Long Neck Vases
from cb2 add a certain elegance and would be great for a single stem of greenery or a single orchid. $3.95 each.
Recycled glass vases
from Pottery Barn are simple, a little casual, but totally charming for some Lillies, Alistromeria, or even a bird of paradise. Small vase $19.99
We use Beaker's
in thebathroom to hold q-tips, but come this summer, we'll be using them for roses and daisies. Since they're scientific and pyrex, they're pretty rugged and survived even a drop to the concrete floor. From $3.95-8.95.
SarahC talked about
Moroccan tea glasses as a small space solution and we love using any drinking glass as a vase. This way we can mix and match depending on the flowers. Use your own glasses (free!) or invest in some Moroccan Tea Glasses
(set of 6, $26) or try our other favorite drinking glass, the Duralex Picardie Glass
, $10 for a box of 4.
We love these Ceramic Vases
from Not Neutral for their graphic presence. Try a more subdued light blue version or a bolder brown and white. Each $12.
