You can put the in those water pick things.  It will help to keep the flowers fresh, too.  Yeah, it will leave holes, but no one will know. 

The easiest way would be to ask for some organic or edible flowers.  Cut the stem right under the flower head, and use some buttercream to secure it in place.

The roses that are inserted between the tiers(in the space that the pillars leave) can easily be inserted into water picks . The roses would then be placed like spokes on a wheel with the water picks in the center.

I think they use a floral ring (green styrofoam that looks like an “O”).  The cake supports go in the center open space.

If your cake is like the first one, I would just double check that your flowers will be wide enough to fill the space.  If they are roses, you might need to force them open or give them enough time to open, because they generally are in tight bud form at the florist.  Good luck!
