    I have very little experience with Eiffel Tower vases, as I try to discourage brides simply because I (personally) do not like the look. I have too many other beautiful, more trendy options for pedestals for elevated centerpieces.

    However, I have a bride that is insistent on using 24" ET vases. The problem is she is requesting a very large floral design of hydrangeas, roses, and other heavy stems. I have typically used the bouquet holder and I have seen the 6" design dishes with the post that can be inserted in the top of the vase. My concern and question is will it be top heavy and tumble/tip if someone were to bump the table during the reception/dining/dancing?

    Anyone with experience with this type of design, please chime in!

    I would be terrified. I was a nervous wreck using larger pilsner vases, I can't imagine using the riffle towers.....unless you were going to create a larger heavier base. I'd refuse.
