Hi! I’m creating centerpieces for my friend’s wedding. All it is are clear vases with a flower arrangement. How can I dress up the vase so you don’t see the stems? Is there a creative way to do so? Thanks!

You can wrap the inside of the vase with aspidistra leaves. Like so….

You could wrap the inside of the vase with the big green leaves… something like this:

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.

I suggested rocks/jewels, even sand but the people I’m working with are EXTREMELY frugal. I don’t have much room in terms of a budget. The bouquets are towards a fall bouquet with some purples, yellows, oranges, little reds. Thanks! You all are awesome!!

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.

@Chartreuse:I tried that, but then when wrapping the flowers it looks funny in the vase. the vases are medium cylinders.

@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 LOL
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!
