It sounds like it could work.  I know orchids for sure work really well in there are there are some tiny ones that would look cute in there. When you test it out, please share a photo!

Orchids work very well, and there are some varieties that have bigger petals so that you won’t have to get as many stems.

Silk flowers are also pretty good.

That would look really pretty.  You might even want to consider the water lights if your venue will be kind of dark, that would look neat.  I’ve seen tons of submerged orchids.  We’re going to submerge roses, but anchoring them to the bottom by putting some small river rocks on the stem – otherwise they floated.

I saw this done with purple hydrangea blossoms at a wedding this past weekend. It was very cute!

Btw..I think this is such a refreshing idea..probably would look great!  Have quite a few of tealight candles dotted below them to give the submerged flowers an "uplighting" kind of glow…

What a great idea!

i have seen tulips with the long stems curled at the bottom. Very sleek look. I have also seen orchids.  go to swsmag.net and look through the section marked inspiration from around the world.  this is where i have seen some of these.

good luck! I’m thinking of doing the tulips for my tall hollow vases.
