Alright, if you are looking for something heavy, it will not be this. This vase is made out of bamboo, which is a thin, hallow branch. If you cut it open and spread it out, it will not be thick or heavy. This is not oak or or a solid wood. Do not expect it to be. You can review bamboo if you are unsure of its characteristics.Secondly, it does require some work on your part. The flowers need to be soaked down with water and gently spread apart so that you don't break them. They are fragile... extremely fragile. But once spread and dried, they resort back to a 'hardened' state. It took me approximately 45 minutes for the first one (reading everything) and less time to set up the second one. But they look absolutely amazing on each side of my foyer.Lastly, the flowers themselves are stunning. I always told myself I would never have fake flowers since my mother had them growing up in our house. These are not silk flowers and look 100 times better. I am so glad I bought these and spent the money on them. In my opinion they are so worth it.!
I purchased these vases to add color to my family room of black leather furniture. I was so very pleased with the texture, color and ease of re-creating the floral arrangement. The vases look much more expensive than want I actually paid. I have received so many compliments from family and friends.
I painted an accent wall a dark reddish color and was looking for accent pieces to add to bring out the color. The color of this vase is very nice and matches perfectly, and from a distance the vase looks very substantial, but up close it is very light weight and wobbly even with the sand inside the vase. I was surprised by the cheap foam you had to insert at the top of the vase to orgganize the flowers. Once staged and off to the side it is pretty and we get a lot of compliments, just don't let company examine it to closely. LOL

I purchased all the bamboo items in red as this is my accent color throughout the house. I love the style of the vase and was not to small nor to large for where I have it which is next to my fireplace. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a deep red item to accent the home.

I love this vase. It really adds an elegant touch to my dining room. The only thing that was a little pain was pulling the flowers out (it comes with instructions on how to decorate the vase which I didn't know) and arranging it, but the directions were very simple to follow.
