For my sister's bridal shower, we used clear glass cylinder vases with white costume (parade) beaded necklaces inside, at the bottom. The beads looked like pearls! It was gave a decorative touch that was simple yet well-complimented.
Drop necklaces into the vases, about 1 or 2 per vase, whichever looks best. Add flowers to vase. Then add water, being careful with the flowers, if they are real.
Note: Mix it up! Add other baubles in the vases that sink or even float, with a nice bouquet. Other colored (or metallic) parade beads can add a fun touch to any party or holiday! Have fun with it. I'm sure you can think of other similar great ideas to jazz up a vase of flower!
Also, we added cute little springtime figures (on a small stick/dowel) that were in Michael's Crafts dollar section. For example, a wooden bumble bee and butterfly, already colored and pretty.
