Take Five: Vases for your Valentines (or Galentines) flowers

Now that we’ve said goodbye to the never-ending month of January, it’s finally time to gleefully spring into February and all the festivities that come along with it. We all know what comes hand-in-hand with the mention of the month and that is, of course, Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re partnered up with that special someone or getting ready for a Netflix night in with your girls, Valentine’s day has a long history of being a day for flowers. Big bouquets of lilies for your bestie or a delicate single rose for your new love interest, both have the power to brighten up the day, and what better way to enhance their display than adding a little something extra, like an interesting or decorative flower vase, to complete the look.
