You've made the vase, now fill it! Use real flowers or complete the theme with brick blooms. These are the pieces you need to make the stem.

Make the Stem

Stack green cylinder blocks and a "leaf" piece (in any order) over a brown stem. Keep stacking until your stem is long enough to fit in the vase.

Starting with the base (1), connect four petals (2), then a center disk (3). Flip it over and attach an anchor block (4). With a connector block, attach the bloom to the stem (5).
