These roses were gorgeous and perfect for the ivory and gold theme we were going for for a 50th Anniversary for my in-laws. They arrived on time and were packaged very well. They enlivened beautifully once we cut the stems and placed them in buckets of water for a few hours. My sister-in-law are no experts at arranging flowers, so we kept it simple by using a single flower with gold accents pieces. You can't go wrong with roses in that case. We were able to make 12 small (we wanted small) table centerpieces plus one large one for the entrance table. We only had 9 dinner tables, so that left us with arrangements for the gift and cake tables, too.
