Depending what the color scheme is, you can put fruit in the vase.

Or coffee beans

Or you could fill it with rocks or jewels.

Mine had leaves wrapped around as well…


But you can also use lemons or limes:

Maybe you could wrap the stems with an accent color ribbon so that they become a point of interest rather than trying to hide them. If the flowers need water, just wrap the middle part  leaving the ends exposed.

@WantToGoHome: I would try using something like beads or stones. There’s also these little water ball things that you can order online. (I’ve also seen them at my local farmers market)  I know there are multiple places online to order them but this is what they look like.

Wanttogohome: Do you have a pic? It will help to promote inspiration LOLLaughing


Maybe you could make the flowers into a pomander-like ball and set it on top the vase so that no stems are in the vase? Then hang a crystal strand, or whatever matches the colors or theme, down into the vase like this pic:

with those colors and a tight budget, i’d go with fruit. you can cut up lemons or oranges, or fill the vase with cranberries. it looks great for fall.

round pebbles or gems always work well!
