The mini bud vases were perfect!! I am going to set them on a heart mirror(Available here) with a diamond napkin ring( available from here) place a lavender rosebud in the vase and sprinkle with silver heart confetti.
Our theme is Diamonds Are Forever...Just Like Us! We also purchased all the diamond accessories, (toasting flutes, candle holders and serving set). Just pick a theme and Oriental Trading will always have what you need!!

7 vases leaked from the bottom and were unusable. Not as heavy as would like the product to be.

I purchased these for my upcoming wedding to use as centerpieces (grouped with candles, mirrors, and crystal sprays). I had originally planned to use glass vases from another store but they were just too fragile. These are much sturdier and actually match the vase I bought for my sweetheart table. They are a good quality plastic and really look like cut crystal. These little vases are the perfect accent for my centerpieces. Also, I have had no trouble with the stickers, they come off very easily.

Cute Little Vases
Bought the vases for a friends little restaurant. I added a little river gravel for weight and placed 4 short stems of silk flowers in each. The small arrangements were lovely and perfect for the small tables.
I agree that the labels were difficult to remove, I went very slowly and found that sliding a paring knife under the edge then lifting up made them come loose better. For the bits of glue that remained I used dishwashing liquid and rubbed and the remainder came off. Do not use goof-off as it will pit and destroy the plastic.
For the low cost the vases are a good deal.

These vases are very light weight and absolutely beautiful!! The huge sticker on the bottom of the vase is easy to take off if you take your time. If you try to hurry, you have a sticky mess. The vases are beautiful with just flowers in for an inside reception, but our reception is outside, so to weigh down the vases so that they don't tip if it is windy, we also put about a 1/2 cup of rice in each vase. It was grainy-looking and didn't take away from the cut-crystal look of the top half of the vase. Just beautiful!! Extremely pleased! Oh and they were cheap!! We used 2 per table.

Very good for what they are!
I have a few events for my upcoming nuptials and couldn't afford to rent/buy 20-25 glass vases for a large, yet informal dinner we're having the night before the big day. For plastic bud vases, I was surprised at how nice they are (in broad daylight they could actually pass for cut glass!). The price was unbeatable and they are perfect for what I need.
I plan to pair the vases with colorful candles to create simple centerpieces on 20+ tables for an informal, buffet dinner for about 200 people.
They were packaged very well and arrived without any damage.

Great for us
I wanted something simple and inexpensive yet elegant for our wedding reception tables. These fit the bill. They are plastic but do not look it. Unless you pick them up they look like cut glass. Came packed fine so all are in good condition. They are going to work great for us!

Lovely With Nasty sticker
These little vases are very pretty. They look like cut glass. They were the right size. The only problem was getting the "made in china" sticker off the bottom. It covered the entire base and wrapped around the edge. I had to use GooBeGone. Don't try soaking them in hot water the glue just turns to gum and you have a sticky mess. Trust me.
