5. Double The Vase, Double The Fun
This is one my all time favorite ways to add a little pizzazz to any vase! Not only is it gorgeous, but the small vase inside of the larger vase makes it easier to assemble your bouquet. You can fill the outer vase with anything that fits the season: lemons, limes, oranges, large leaves, acorns, rocks, or seasonal items. You get the idea! Larger flowers work best because they tend to cover the rim of the outer vase, but it’s a little trickier to change the water, so choose flowers that aren’t finicky about having fresh water, or just be aware that when you do change the water, your vase may need reassembling.
6. Disguising Your Stems
Use large flat leaves such as aspidistra to line a glass vase and disguise your stems. This is helpful if you are using floral foam to assemble your arrangement, or simply want a beautiful and unique look. Don’t be afraid to use faux leaves as they are available year round. Read more here.
7. Bubble Skirt
Floating flowers are a fun way to decorate for special occasions, or to simply create something different for your dining room table. Most flowers float pretty well on their own until they start to pool with water and slowly sink. For a longer lasting centerpiece, use bubble wrap to make little skirts for your flowers.
