Where Do You Store Flower Vases?

010512flowers.jpg Even though you can't eat them and you don't really serve food out of them, somehow, flower vases seem to end up being stored in the kitchen. If you're lucky enough to have a china hutch, they might find a corner to call home, but in my kitchen, my vases always seem to be in the way!

My last several homes have all been open loft style apartments or homes. I've been using open racks to hold things and while that helps me see right where things are, it also means they're buried behind 10 tons of plates and bowls any time I actually need to use them.

Prior to these modern and warehouse-y type properties I was in more traditional bungalow homes. Where did my glassware live then? At the back of the pantry or under the sink. Either way, it was never exactly convenient.

Have you figured out a great place to store yours where they're out of the way? I'll be pairing mine down so I have less, which will hopefully make them easier to store. Share your storage solutions in the comments below!
