i was looking at making a centerpiece design that is 3 different heights of cyclinder vases + flower in the water + candle on top.
i’m not sure what types of flowers I can put in there though. i was thinking of a long stemmed flower but im not sure what those are called….
anyone have any ideas?

Those are some type of orchids. Orchids are usually what you see submerged in water. I don’t know how a long-stemmed flower would work in this scenario–probably depends on the variety. Can you be more specific about what kinds of flowers you have in mind?

I have some pics for you!
The flowers in yours are dendrobium orchids!
1st pic are a flower like cherry blossoms but not cherry blossoms – they might some type of orchid
2nd pic has orchids in the tall one, cherry blossoms in the medium one and tulips in the small one. But Cherry blossoms are only available 2 weeks in the spring so not very practical… but ask your florist if there is something similar if you like it
3rd – orchids in the middle one and tulips in the other two
4th – pink mini calla lilies
5th – I have no idea what flower it is but very pretty! You could ask a florist
I hope this helps you get more ideas

Orchids are usually a good choice because each stem has several blooms so you don’t have to try to overstuff or weight the blooms in a tall cylinder.

my theme is brown, cream, hints of orange. I was thinking of putting cream or orange flowers in the vase because i will already have brown/cream table runner over a white table cloth.
@mouse – i was just looking at different types of flowers or other ideas
@future mrs martin – thanks for the pics and names of flowers!
if anyone has any other ideas of cream or orange flowers that can be put into a vase, let me know =)
