    Use Fresh Flowers. Silk flowers look fake and could have their colors bleed into the water. We use “floral sticky clay” or “CLING” to attach them to the bottom of a dry vase. Hold them up to the side of the vase and cut so there is about 1-2″ left of space from the flower to the top of the vase so water and a candle fit above it. Add about 1 inch of stones over the clinged bottom of the flower in the vase and add 1-2 inches of water. Add the rest of the water onsite (this type of arrangement only lasts under water for 1-2 days before the water will fog up or the plant will start to dissolve.

    Lizz,

    To do submerged with orchids we use “CLING” which is a floral sticky clay. Clean and dry your vases completely. Make sure the inside bottom of the vase is dry. Roll a ball of cling about 1/2″ diameter (dime size) and then push around fresh cut stem. Put entire stem into vase and push down to “Cling” it to the bottom of the vase. Cover with 1″ of gems or stones to hide the cling and keep it at the bottom. Fill with 2″ of water before the event, and add the rest of the water at the event along with floating candle. This type of arrangement only lasts a day or two as the water after 2 days or more will start to fog up and dissolve the blooms. It will basically look like a dirty fishtank (yuck!) so do not fill up with too much water ahead of time. 2″ beforehand should be enough. I usually make submerged arrangements no more than 2 days before the event so they are fresh and last.

    Hope this helps!

    I live in MA but are highly interested in learning a bit more about submerging orchids for a wedding centerpiece. The orchids on the stem with blue stone at the bottom is what I have invisioned for my wedding centerpiece forever! I am hoping to get a few tips of the trade as to whether real flowers, or real touch flowers you recommend, also What type of orchid works best? I love the magenta color as it goes with my color scheme, any advice?
