Carla: For me water is very clean and refreshing and it’s a little different it’s unexpected. The liquid design is basically composed of the three different bases so we have the tall vase in the center which is actually called a wave base and then we have red tulips just kind of coil as if they’re chasing each other up the inside of the vase and then we just top that with floating candles and the two smaller vases are basically wave vases without the stem and we have tulips that are again submerged and hen we have those kind of topped with floating candles as well.
