@brideanjeza:  Could you use something like this? If the mouth was wider than the metal thing and the bottom was thinner you could rest them in the top. A long straight vase with a lip wider than the metal thing would work too

What kind of a look are you going for? I worry that finding a vase to fit the top without easily falling off if the table gets bumped might be difficult. You could possibly make or have made for you some some floral arrangments in pots with lips that would allow the pot to hang inside the metal frame. The pot could be sprayed or covered and flowers situated in floral oasis with some nice greens cascading and taller flowers for the height you’re looking for.

A vase should work, there are so many shapes and size out there, you might have to do a little shopping around, but I am sure you will find something.

You could glue a plate or saucer to the top with Epoxy, then use that as a base for a pomander or a half spere of floral foam with an arrangement of flowers-similar to a flower arrangement in the center of a candelabra.

 

 

You could get those glass globes with the hole in one side,place a floating flower, then hang it inside the frame of the candelabra from the top.

@brideanjeza:  What is the diameter of the circle inside the candleholder? How tall is it? Is the space the same at the top and the bottom or does it get wider at the top?

@brideanjeza:  You don’t have to limit yourself to a pomander shape.

You can use floral foam that comes in a plastic plate and glue the plate onto the top of the candleholder. That allows you to shape the floral arrangement however you choose.

@brideanjeza:  Michael’s should have something similar.

Save on Crafts has these floral foam holders for Eiffel tower vases. You secure the floral foam with florist tape then make your arrangement. They come in different sizes

Are you using real of fake flowers? If you use fake, I would just wrap them up the poles. Like maybe wrap greenery or a neutral flower up the poles and then set a kissing ball on top. Or ifyou really like candels (and owuldn’t be afraid of it getting knocked over) a shallow bowl with candles might look nice.

I’m sorry you’re having trouble finding something! Michael’s always has floral foam though, and if you’re really stuck for a structural piece another option is to bring your piece to a floral shop and ask them to order in and sell you the pots or foam holders. It may cost a bit more than ordering them online but you’ll probably be more certain that they will work with your piece.
