Brindha kalakkray pa... small cute (terracotta??) urli and nice arrangement...
but like JKM suggested to me try and find a round placemat for this it will make the arrangement look even better (you know JKM I am yet to find a nice round rug for my urli & it is lying without an arrangement for the last two weeks)

Nice presentation, and nice antique mini-uruli and crochet piece!
This also reminds me of what I did a couple of years ago. I had a get-together at my place, and had a similar arrangement done on a water-bowl, with a double colored hibiscus at the center. The hibiscus kept flopping over because of its long pistil (and stamen structure). I took a scissor and cut off the central structure and was able to get a good balance. I know, it was cruel of me, but I got the effect that I wanted!

Simple arrangement on an antique looking urli!
Brindha, in the place of crochet, you can even try one of Lakshmi's kolams!
