The flowers bring freshness. For that reason, the floral arrangements are the most demanded alternative as a centerpiece and it is not a coincidence.

But also create flourishes of contemporary style combining glass and concrete, as we show you.
They can also serve as a flowerpot to grow small succulents or aromatics. The jars are, in fact, an original way to grow the latter in the kitchen and have them handy when cooking our favorite dishes. The lack of space is not an excuse to grow your own parsley, cilantro, basil or mint.
