Recently I wrote about a big, beautiful new trend for the home: blooms and branches displayed in big, oversized vases. Many of you loved the look, but wanted to know: where does one find a vase this big? So I’ve rounded up a few options.

A few things I was looking for: vases made of clear glass (minimal, works with any decor, shows off flowers well), and that measured 12 inches or more in at least one dimension. Some of these have such interesting shapes that they would also look great displayed around the home, even without flowers. Some of them have oversized price tags to go with their oversized dimensions: if these are out of your range, give your local thrift store or antique shop a try.
