Today is our 8th wedding anniversary! On one hand it feels like our wedding was just yesterday, and on the other hand it feels like it was an eternity ago! While just reminiscing over pictures from that magical weekend, it's safe to say that our pre-children 20-something selves looked younger and way more rested! 

To celebrate eight years the Hubs got me the prettiest white roses, which I immediately trimmed down and "vased" (a new verb perhaps?!). I just love switching out vases and adding fresh greenery or flowers to a space for a quick and inexpensive home update. Glass, ceramic, wood, or metal, white, clear, blue, or speckled, a go-to vase can instantly elevate your space from just "ehh" to "ohhh yea!"


Take for instance these stunning shots of the beautiful homes below...eliminate the vase and there's no interest, no pop of color, no organic element to balance the sleek countertops and consoles! 

Vases are also great hostess gifts for when you're headed to that summer BBQ. Who doesn't love a statement vase to showcase fresh blooms or tropical greenery this time of year?!?

I've rounded up a variety of my faves (many of which I already own or have given as presents!), all under $50!
