How do I make centerpieces with shoes and flowers?

We were in Ireland and while visiting a sheep farm, the family used old worn out boots filling them with soil and live plants that were placed near the buildings and they were quaint and fit right in with the scenery.
If you are wanting something for a table ? arrangement, I'd buy new shoes, silk flowers and use floral grass as filler.
Cut floral foam to fit in the shoe and arrange silk flowers in the foam as you like. Use Spanish moss, easter grass, or colored shredded paper to cover the foam.
If you have to use real flowers, buy the glass tubes to hold water for the stems and secure the tubes inside the shoe somehow (maybe poke them in hollowed-out areas in the foam).
If you don't want to actually put the flowers IN the shoes, another possibility would be to use a round mirror as your base, then put a tall skinny vase in the center for your flowers and have the shoes as accents around the vase with bright tissue paper or tulle poking out of the shoes to add color and fun. You could have shoes in a complete circle around the vase, or just one or two as an accent. Scatter confetti or flat colored glass marbles around the mirror for extra decoration.
