My husband and I eloped in Hawaii over the summer, and decided to have a reception when we returned. We chose to make centerpieces with the Pink Ice Proteas as they are so exotic! Everyone took the centerpieces home. They were a big hit. I would definitely order these flowers, or any other from Fifty Flowers. My experience with this company was amazing. They really know what they are talking about. I would definitely follow their recommendations regarding how soon to order flowers before your reception, flower care instructions, etc.
