Add Excitement to a Clear Vase
Try creating a flower frog, a device traditionally used to hold stems in place, often constructed out of wire; however, in this case, fashion one out of fruit to anchor your bouquet and make arranging more foolproof. Fill a glass cylinder or large vase with lemons, apples or oranges and add water to just below the rim. Then wedge your blossoms in between. Since water with fruit can become cloudy, Mead suggests changing it every couple of days.
