    Such a beautiful arrangement Debbie as always 😃love the sustainability and what a great idea! Would it useful to place water or decorative stones in the vase for sturdiness?

      Hello Julia, thank you for your lovely comment. Its a great idea to place stones or water into the vase for added stability. You could also use sand, shells or decorative glass beads to help emphasise a theme. Sometimes certain colour palettes are difficult to replicate with fresh materials so adding another dimension can underline the colour scheme
