If you are tired of making a grid with tape every time, you can get the budable cap to place on the mouth of the vase centerpiece. Budable is a stretchy silicone cap that stretches up to 4X its size. The tiny holes are perfect for precise control of your flowers. It allows short-cut flowers to stand up at any length.

The best part about this arrangement is you can change the water quickly without rearranging the flowers.

You must ensure that your vase’s rim is completely dry and should not slip out of place. You can clean the edge of your vase centerpiece with rubbing alcohol before applying the cap. This will help in maintaining a better hold. As it is silicone material, make sure you place the flowers carefully. The flowers with thorns can tear the silicone sheet and cause damage to it.

3. Use a Smaller Vase Inside

If you have a wide-mouth vase and you are irritated about placing flowers. You can try a small vase centerpiece with the same height but a narrow mouth. This method is helpful for softer stemmed flowers that incline to drape outwards. A vase with a smaller neck can hold the bouquet closer together.
