Tall Vase, Short Flowers

Martha Stewart Living, March 1998

Here's a trick to make tall vases more versatile. When arranging flowers whose stems are too short, start by carefully inserting a jelly jar upside down into the vase. Place a flower frog on top, and arrange flowers -- in this case, zinnia 'Envy' and bells of Ireland -- as you would in a shorter vase. This technique is easier than aiming long stems into the frog at the bottom of a narrow vase, and it keeps you from dropping a heavy metal frog into a fragile vessel.
