The vase and all the flowers were individually wrapped with bubble wrap which was great considering some of the floral decor is fragile. My only disappointment was that the lotus plants were discontinued. The paperwork said that my order was "upgraded" and instead included two fan like mushroom peices. They were beautiful but, they are not pictured and I was not expecting the substitution. The lilies are beautiful and look like dried leaves. Overall, the value was great for the price. Makes for a beautiful arrangement in my foyer area.
