Now that it’s finally spring, it’s also time to think about vases and vessels for properly displaying your bodega tulips. A simple vase can turn even cheap flowers into something display-worthy, and there are a surprising number of charming, but still affordable, vases on Amazon (just add flowers and you’ve got an instant Mother’s Day gift).

According to writer Chloe Malle, “A bud vase, for the uninitiated, is a small, usually narrow vessel sized and shaped … to highlight the boldness of a single stem.” Pair with afaux anthurium and you’ve got a permanent floral arrangement, no water needed.
Throw in some sprigs and stems and voilà:This cutie has suddenly sprouted hair. Plus, the hand-painted effect makes this vase appear to be the work of an Instagram ceramist — for a fraction of the price.
