Submerged flower centerpieces don't always have to be completely covered in water, but are usually contained WITHIN the clear container and easily viewed from all sides.  Water loving bulb flowers (such as tulips, Gerbera daisies and other soft stemmed flowers) begin to decompose quickly in standing water.  It's important that you wait until the wedding day before adding the water that completely covers the full stem or blooms of the flower.

To create this look, you'll need the following florist supplies, vase and fresh flowers:

Float-soak the Oasis bricks of Floral Foam in water treated with Crystal Clear Flower Food.  Slice the saturated foam in 1.5" slices.  Take the vase and lightly impress the foam, cutting it in a circular shape the exact size of the vase.

Push the wet foam gently down into the bottom of the vase.  Wipe down the sides of the vase and clean it of any foam residue.

Insert roses around perimeter of vase, followed by tulips and then delphinium in the center. Wrap ribbon around the outside bottom of vase to conceal foam, gluing it in place with Uglu Dashes.  The outer vase has to be dry for the Uglu to stay attached.   If desired,  wrap beaded wire or other decorative finishes to the outside of the ribbon.
