Heart Pick…

Jan 26, 2009

This little cutie will look gorgeous tucked into a floral arrangement or placed in a small bud vase as it’s holder. Several of these running down the center of your dinner table which are staggered in height would look fabulous. And if you have a candlelight dinner the shimmer from the glitter caught by the candlelight would be gorgeous.
