I ordered this although I already had an aesthetically pleasing, hi-end arrangement for my dinnertable. However, it was just too tall to invite cross table conversations when I entertained at a formal dinnerparty, and had to be removed before the guests were seated. This left the table needing something to give it color. This centerpiece is the answer. It is not three feet long as advertised in some offerings--just over two feet--but it is not sparsely embellished, and is very colorful. I have other silk peonies, and this is the best. Also, the green hydrangea are quite realistic. Most of all, it is a very low profile piece, so there is no reason to remove it from the table when guests are attempting to converse across the board. It arrived quickly and in excellent condition. If my function were scheduled for this afternoon, the centerpiece would already be in place. It would be equally suitable for a coffee table arrangement, as it is small enough in scale not to overwhelm its surroundings.
