Hurricane Vases

Hurricane Vase with Green Peas

Hurricane vases are one of those home accessories you will use time and again. On a recent Homesense commercial there were fun ideas like filling the hurricane with goldfish crackers, and I thought yes, these vases are handy indeed. You can display one of them on a dining table or coffee table or group several of them together to create a vignette.

Seasonal Hurricane Centrepiece Ideas


  • Autumnal ideas include branches, Chinese lanterns, mini pumpkins. Experiment with a variety of dried legumes such as dried split peas, kidney beans and other colourful¬†beans.


  • In the winter use Christmas bulbs, painted pine cones, snowflakes or candles floating in water (another throwback to the eighties and my mom’s decor, but only if you add food colouring!!). Vibrant cranberries in a hurricane would be a beautiful centerpiece for a white and silver holiday palette.

  • For summer, add sand and candles, water with floating blooms, or gumballs or marbles for pure colour fun.


  • In the spring fill your hurricane vases with eggs and ferns, hyacinths or jelly beans.

What kind of pretty things will you showcase in your hurricane vases? I love the painted pine cone idea so stay tuned. Hint hint.
