"This is an adorable centerpiece. I used it with the Fairie Friends stuff for my daughter's 4th Birthday. It was cute as can be but once we got it open it would not stand on its own. I've ordered centerpieces in the past for parties and such and they always are fantastic and very sturdy. So I had to fold down the flower tips a bit extra and tape the bottom to the table cloth to make it stand. It still looked nice.
