In your living room you can literally create the mood that you desire by choosing the right color and the right placing accompanied with a suitable flower holder; be it a vase, bud holder, the brass pot or a simple flower basket.

Flower holder

The big brass flower and petal holders from Southern India are quite popular as a welcome sign. You can fill them up with fresh water…throw in some lose flower petals and let an ensemble of various flowers from your garden float in them along with some floating candles at night. For a more soothing touch you can always add some aroma oil or perfume to the water.

Good old flower vases come in myriad shapes, sizes and colors and you can pick and chose them as per the interiors of your room. The big ones are often more suitable for a dining table and the small and medium size ones are more appropriate for the central table. You can also use little bud holders to display your blooming roses in a scattered or well laid out manner.

The flower hangers or little pot holders are one of the most decorative pieces to display your flowers. As you can hang them at an appropriate place and let the fragrance of the flowers waft through the room.


The big southern brass flower and petal holders are the best for the entrance areas or right next to the door of your living room. The pot holders should be placed either in the corners or alongside the walls. Since they dangle; they are not ideal for a central placement. For the central positioning of flowers a coffee table is usually the best placing. You can also place pretty flower vases on the little corner tables in the living room.
