    How about marbles, they make them just for flower arrangements in all kinds of colors, too. You should be able to find them in a craft store. Lori.

    Marbles would work good. Sand would, too, but it's far messier if the

    arrangements DO get tipped on accident. Those glass stones or marbles

    would be my first recommendation, just fill in the container around the

    arrangement with them.



    If you DO go with sand, you can get it year round at places like Home

    Depot, Menards, etc, for around $3 for a huge bag. I buy it year round

    here in Michigan for our hermit crab tanks.

    I know this is an older post, but wanted to solve your dilemna in case

    anyone else needs to know.

    I worked at Michael's Arts and Crafts, and the floral ladies there used

    fishing sinkers. They said the glass marbles cost a lot more and that

    when people dropped the arrangements in the store, the glass marbles

    would break and shatter.

    You can find fishing sinkers in all kids of sizes at any department

    store that has sporting goods. Bi-Mart or Walmart would be my first try

    for a decent price on them.

    Be careful that children do not handle or chew on the leaded sinkers.
