Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you plan to use this vase for a centerpiece for a table, keep the stems of the flowers short so your guests can see across the table.
  • tip 2
    Skip filling the vase with water. Instead of using cranberries and oranges, fill the vase with coffee beans and pecan halves, and add dried flowers.
