I was really looking forward to this sweet small vase of flowers for my powder room in my new home. Well it arrived today and unfortunately does not look as pictured. The flowers are glued in so tight there is very little give to fluff up the flowers after being packed. The packing has not damaged it's appearance it was clearly put together poorly. The clear glue/ acrylic fake water is so low in the vase there's no way it looks like flowers in water.. I would not buy this again nor would I recommend this to anyone to purchase. My box & packing material crunched in my box compactor or it would be going back.
