I was so excited when I ordered this garland because I have wanted one for a while but always wondered if they would look fake. When it arrived and I saw it in the clear package, I was over the moon! The leaves look great - you can tell they are fake from a distance, but they are not glaringly obvious. The leaves are mixed shades and quite natural looking and they do look lovely, very similar to eucalyptus & willow . The branches are full and thick, so that was fantastic, as so often you see garlands that are thin and sparse.
Everything was looking good, until I took it out of the packet! White berries were falling out everywhere. When I say 'berries' what I actually mean is polystyrene balls. Like the kind that they fill bean bags with. They are supposed to be stuck onto the garland in clumps, but there is no obvious glue signs there. It obviously needs more. You only have to move & the berries fall away. Even lightly touching it makes no difference. I really wished that they weren't included in the garland. It would be so much better without them . The idea is nice and if it worked, they would look pretty, but the reality is they just come off.
The garland itself looks amazing. I don't like the berries falling off though. Despite that, I think for the price, this is a decent enough bargain purely for the greenery and I think I will definitely use it. The berries are just a no - no for me. I can however, use the garland without them and it does look really nice. Just be aware of this if you buy.
The leaves make a very pretty garland, but do away with the berries or maybe find a hot glue gun.
