"This was a cute centerpiece for the money. I added mylar & latex ballons with lots of curling ribbon tied to a lg. metal washer to help weigh down the centerpiece.3 of my 8 items were not in good condition,but I was able to fix them. I should have ordered a couple extra in case of that type of problem.They also do not stand up well,but adding the ballons & curling ribbon helps with that. I got lots of coments on how cute they were."
