I’d use PVC pipe for the stem and wrap with ribbon.  Not sure how to get it so round though.  Practice, I guess.  Maybe they used silk so the stem was pliable?  It will look lovely for what you want to do with them.  Best wishes!

Get a styrofoam ball and stick the baby’s breath into it to get the round look. Then you jus place the ball on top of the vase (probably have to cut off the bottom to give you a flat surface).

I would think PVC plumbing pipe would probably work. You could spray paint it. You could probably even find some kind of base for it there, too.

Edit: It looks like they used a styrofoam ball to get it round.

I’m not very good at this sort of thing, but that is amazing!

Would a bouquet holder work like you would use in a tower vase?

Something like this would work. I’m sure Michael’s or JoAnne’s carry them. Make sure the ball you get is for fresh flowers, not silk or dried though.

I have used the bouquet holders to do silk bouquets. They work just like the styrofoam balls that you would use to make poms. Make sure to get the fresh flower ones if you are using fresh flowers and the other one if you are not. If you are using fresh flowers, it is easier to put the flower stems in if the foam part is wet. I suggest doing a test one first.

i would hot glue or tacky-glue the ball to the pvc so it doesnt fall off. as for the base, you can use other pvc plumbing fittings to create a base, or hot glue it to a board or inside of a bucket or pot filled with rocks to stablize it?

OP you said that these were going to line the aisle, is this out door? instead of a fancy base, could you attatch a wooden stake to the bottom to stab it into the ground?
