    You could find pots in any color and spray paint them in the brown you like. Just an idea.

    I like bowl #1.  I also think that the black pots in your picture would work as well.

    @Lulume:  i like the idea of spray painting the pots brown like another bee said. I also think that the black would look ok too.

    @Lulume: I’m just worried that the bowl arrangement could easily fall over to the side… orchids are quite heavy, and I find that they work best in narrow pots. I would suggest something like this. Not dark brown, but at least brown and price friendly! Also, keep in mind that IKEA also carries orchids. We usually get ours from them (we have them at home all the time) and they’re just $14/$15. As long as you select specimens that still have buds, they work great!

    @Lulume: If you’re doing glass – don’t spray paint it! I always think spray paining is going to make things miraculously pretty and then I’m in my garden spraying for hours and the coverage is still looking uneven… I do think the last suggestion you posted would work really well with the orchids as it has higher, straight, edges. Just remove the orchid from it’s plastic pot and place it in the pot – then you can stabilize it with moss and bark that you can get from any well stocked orchard. Where in Canada are you? If in Toronto, I could recommend some nice places to go for supplies.

    @Lulume: Ah, so we’re pretty close! I live in what was formerly York! That means that you should be able to get to this place easily. They have tons of supplies, a large orchid section and amazing staff – so much know how! I also love going to the flower shops on Avenue Rd (Avenue and Davenport), tons to choose from and really good prices. Also, if you’re prepared to shop around a little – head to China Town and look for vases/pots.

    And I think round and square works, don’t over think it! 🙂

    @Lulume:  I think the square vase with the round votives around it will look just fine! I don’t think the shapes of the containers need to match. We are doing something similar with rocks and moss and curly willow and things for a woodsy-type theme. 🙂 I think everything will come together and look amazing. Good luck finding the orchids!
