This World Series has been a real nail biter. So, as Dodger fans, let’s cheer on our home team with some easy Dodger-themed floral arrangements in vases featuring those perennial baseball snacks — peanuts and Cracker Jack.

The vase-in-vase technique used to display the peanuts and Cracker Jack is a nifty trick that you can adapt to any occasion. Fill the space between the vases with fruit slices, candy, leaves — use your imagination.

What you’ll need:
Large vase
Small vase or drinking glass
Peanuts and/or Cracker Jack
Blue ribbon or paper

1. To create the vase-in-vase arrangement, gather two vases — one large and one small. The small vase should fit into the larger one so there is a gap of about one inch. Fill the small vase halfway with water.

2. In the gap between the vases, place the peanuts or Cracker Jack. If your gap is tight and they fit on only one side, that’s fine.

3. Place flowers in the inner vase that contains water. Because this is a Dodgers arrangement, select blue or white flowers.

4. Wrap a blue ribbon around the vase. If you don’t have a ribbon, you can use a thin blue piece of paper as the ribbon. Print out a Dodgers logo, cut it out and glue it to the ribbon in front.
