What is the Stay-In-The-Vase Design®?

The Stay-In-The-Vase® Design is a patented flower holder that, when placed into a cemetery or designer vase, will keep the silk flower bouquet securely in place. The wind will not blow the bouquet out. Water in the vase will not make the bouquet to float out.

What is the difference between small, medium, and large bouquets?

The small, medium, and large Ground Vase bouquets differ in their height and size. The small bouquets are our most petit flowers and they measure from 12 and 16 inches tall. This size is often perfect for granite vases in our Flat Sections (Sections 3 and 4), however medium flowers work great, too.

Our medium size bouquets are our standard flowers and they measure between 17 and 22 inches tall. These bouquets are best suited for bronze vases or granite vases with up to a 3” hole. They are most often used in our upright monument sections.

The large bouquets are our biggest flowers and they measure between 23 and 28 inches tall. These bouquets are best for vases on upright monuments. If your vase has a hole over 3 inches, you will need a large bouquet.
