This floating flower vase creates the illusion of blossoms blooming straight up from the ground. The magic comes from brass pins in an acrylic tray that sits in the shallow ceramic vessel. Place a stem on a pin (the wider the better, like gerbera daisies—but not woody stems, like roses) and the flower will take in as much water as it needs—and stand tall in a striking display.
Instructions: For use with fresh flowers. Place acrylic pin holder in the white base and fill so the water covers the pin holder. Insert the brass pin in the holder and carefully insert the pin into the flower, refill water as needed

The Florida Vase gives the illusion of floating flowers—but it’s no trick. Up to five stems stand upright in this vase that gives blooms a striking new way to stand out.
A shallow ceramic base and an acrylic tray dotted with brass pins make up this out-of-the-ordinary vase. Put a single flower on a pin and it stands up straight, taking in water from the vase's base kind of like a straw (for you science types, the technical process is called capillary action). It will drink only as much as it needs.
We found that the vase works with flowers that have thicker, non-woody stems, like tulips.
The design is named after the Florida Everglades, which shares a similar low-water growing environment. But unlike the dense wetlands, this vase showcases the loveliness of each individual bloom.
