A wedding decorator may choose to mix up artificial flowers with real flowers to create a sense of space and drama.

Eiffel Tower Flower Arrangement
After you have settled on the need for artificial flowers, it is time to work your flowers into the Eiffel Tower vase. There are several factors you should take into account. One such factor is the kind of colors you want to use. The colors that you use depend on the kind of arrangement you prefer. Darker colors work well during the fall season. Darker colors can also create dramatic flair that makes any area look more inviting.
The second think you need to do is remember the height of the Eiffel Tower vases. These vases are typically quite tall. Any artificial flowers that you use should take advantage of this height. Look for items that have long stems and thick flowers. The flowers need to stand out against the vase to be seen. Many artificial flowers have long, thick stems. This sort of stem will stand out and allow guests to see the flowers. Shorter flowers can be taped against the sides of the vase.
An artificial flower arrangement used in an Eiffel Tower should always have accessories. Accessories include frills, feathers, coins, mirrors, leaves and other materials. Mix real flowers and artificial flowers to create a striking look. Use fabric to add contrasting color along the edges of the vases. Glue on coins to add sparkle. Place a mirror behind the vase to capture the light as guests come in. An Eiffel Tower vase is designed to bring attention to itself. Your arrangement should play up this factor with elegant light and dashes of color.
