I love sunflowers in summer and putting them in a tall vase filled with lemons and limes is just so summery! Since sunflowers are thick and heavy, the fruits will help to hold the stems in place in your vase. You can either use sliced fruits or put the whole lemons and limes in the vase. I think this works best for a casual occasion - great for a masculine look as well.

I haven't done this one yet, but I've seen many version of candy filled vases and getcreativejuice.com tells you how to do it. I love the idea of daisies and favorite candies for a kids' party. But you can use this idea for any occasion based on the types of candies, flowers, and color combination you choose. Love this!

Here's another one I love - mini flowers in mini vases! Again, there are many ways to do this. I'm a big fan of multi-colored vases in different shapes and sizes. Make an arrangement of 5 or 6 of these with a single stem flower in each and you have your centerpiece! As I looked around for some good representative pictures, I found The Nectar Collective, which used mini alcohol bottles for vases! Great idea for a men's party, and perhaps a good time putting these together as you empty the bottles!

This is a great idea that doubles as a party favor if needed. Potted plants or flowers to suit your specific occasion. This photo is from Simply Stunning Ideas and I love the colorful pots they used.

Lastly, if you'd like an alternative to flowers, this is a beautiful design from Dining Delight. And quite romantic too!
