Great Way to Fill a Vase

Try this unique, cost-effective centerpiece idea from Katie Gimenez, director of networking at the Plano (Texas) Chamber of Commerce: Line vases with river rocks like Mexican Beach Pebbles (available at Home Depot, Lowes or to anchor florals like spider mums, snapdragons, small filler flowers and greenery. The rocks help fill up vases and provide extra support for the flowers, so only a few stems are needed. Gimenezwas able to create 30 centerpieces for under $100.
