There are multi different ways to put in the pot for securing your "photo" flowers. I have a great and inexpensive way to put your "photo" flowers/cake pops/cake in a tube, pretty much anything on a stick format - go to your local 99 cent store to get a pack of elbow macaroni and filled in the pot (cheap and easy!). Of course, you could always buy a styrofoam and cut it to fit in the pot; however, I found my way to be faster, cheaper and easier=)
The day before heading to my in-laws' house, I made our new product - cake in a tube to put in the pot (cake is pound cake with strawberry and whipped cream in between)! I decorated the plastic container with the ribbons I bought from the store to tight the pot and everything else together. And I wanted to give my mother-in-law a little surprise when she eats the cake. I cut the strawberry into a heart shape and put on top of each "cake tube"<3. This gift idea is not only good for mother's day. You could use it for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, or any other special occassions you could think of.
