The Secret is the Bud Vase

Gerbera daisies have soft stems so many of them will lop unless you brace each stem with wire. Why bother? The narrow mouth of the bud vase holds the loppy stems of the flowers tight. This keeps each small grouping closely knit and minimizes lop. These are fresh-cut style daisy centerpieces and I am sure that many of you will agree that the flowers here look gorgeous lopping a little bit, doing what gerbera daisies like to do!

Optional Ideas for these Daisy Centerpieces

  • Add clear or colored-glass beads to the bottom of each vase. You could also use rocks, pearls, or diamond cut beads.
  • Use different shape bud vases. Narrow mouth bottles also make good bud vases.
