Cylinder Glass Vase Centerpiece With Flowers

Showcasing cylinder glass vases in floral centerpieces gives you creative  possibilities because the vase is transparent. Long-stemmed flowers like calla  lilies, bird-of-paradise, lilies, sunflowers and delphiniums work well in such  vases. Take the arrangement a step further and place cranberries, lemons, limes,  colored marbles, sea shells or crystal beads in the water to cover stems and add  visual interest. Instead of arranging flowers above the glass vase, make a  submerged flower centerpiece.

  • Measure the height of the vase so you can trim the flower stems to fit inside  completely submerged. Cut the stems 1/2 to 1 inch shorter than the height. For  multiple flowers at different heights, cut the tallest flower and position  others next to it where you want them to be. Cut off the excess so all the stems  are even at the bottom.
  • Squirt aquarium glue on the end of the talest flower stem, and stick the glue  end to the inside bottom of the vase. Hold the stem in place until the glue  sets.


  • Repeat the gluing process with the next tallest flower until all the flowers  are in the vase. Do not overload the vase with too many blooms; open areas are  more attractive.


  • Examine the glass vase, with the flowers inside, from every angle to make sure  the blooms are placed correctly and look attractive from all sides. Rearrange  flowers as necessary. It is easier to adjust the flower placement before you  fill the vase with water.


  • Fill the tall cylinder glass vase with distilled water up to 1/2 inch from the  rim. Distilled water will not create bubbles on flowers and glass sides like tap  water.


Tips & Warnings

  • Select the flowers you want to submerge in the vase. Lilies, tulips, roses,  orchids and flowers that bloom on a branch work well. Make sure the flower is  not wider than the vase.
  • To better visualize flower placement, experiment with silk flowers identical to  the fresh flowers. Cut the stems to the appropriate lengths and carefully place  them in the vase. Turn the vase around to see all sides, and adjust flowers  accordingly. Use this model as a reference for the fresh flower submerged  arrangement.
  • Attach small metal fishing weights to stem bottoms by tying them on with clear  fishing line instead of glue, which can be difficult to remove later. This will  weigh the stems down and keep them in place. Cover the weights with colored  pebbles, beads or marbles.
  • Choose flowers without flaws. Glass magnifies objects, so any imperfections on  the flowers or exposed fishing line will be noticed.
