Party Must-Have: Hurricane Vases!

Some items are just so versatile they can be incorporated into any great party. After purchasing an extra large hurricane vase at TJMaxx for $9.99 (yes, it really was only ten bucks)… I started thinking of all the ways I could use this vase. The list is just endless! This timeless candle holder has taken on a new persona. And thus, I’ve declared hurricane vases to be a party must-have! Let’s take a look…

I just love the idea of using a large hurricane vase as a punch bowl or to chill drinks. It is unexpected and quite charming. Flowers definitely make a modern statement in such an oversized vase. Here are some other unique ways to put your hurricane vase to good use:

  • Fill with lemons, limes, apples or artichokes for a modern centerpiece
  • Fill with goodies for a candy or cookie buffet
  • Use as a serving dish for a layered dessert or salad
  • Fill with bath salts and a scoop for do-it-yourself favors
  • Fill with baseballs, golfballs, etc for a sports themed party
  • Fill with popcorn for a movie night or carnival themed party
  • Fill with water and fish for a beach themed party
  • Fill with mini pumpkins for a your fall table
  • Fill with glass ball ornaments for your Christmas table

Like I said, the list is endless. How could you incorporate a hurricane vase into your next party?
