5' Dogwood & Berry Garland w/ Bird Nest Accents by Valerie
I like the wreath but I wish that the eggs were blue instead of green. Blue eggs would stand out a little more and would be more realistic. But overall, it's pretty and I'm glad I bought it.
I ordered the garland and it is so beautiful, plan to keep it out for Spring and Summer. It's so much better in person, wish I had ordered the wreath too.
Green eggs too
I was disappointed with the wreath purchase. I usually love Valerie's pieces. The quality on this missed the mark. The wreath did not have enough dogwood blossoms and what was there looked cheap. The nest and the eggs looked like that section was oversprayed with a green paint. I would have loved to have seen blue eggs in the nests. I think seasonal wreaths offered in the past were better.
Was very excited for this wreath to arrive. When I opened my box I must say the wreath is well done, no spaces very lush. But when I saw the nests with green eggs that completely changed my mind. Carolyn presented this as having blue eggs, and in QVCS description of the item it states life like eggs. What kind of bird that you know of lays green eggs? They should look reallisttic like robins eggs. Did any one get blue eggs. If so I'll gladly exchange it.
I've just finished arranging two of these garlands on my dining room table. I crisscrossed them around a Chinese footbath w/stand and antique candlesticks with QVC's battery operated candles (with timer). A bit of fluffing and arranging and, it's gorgeous...if I do say so myself. When spring flowers start showing up at the market I'll place some potted plants in the footbath although it's not really necessary, the footbath is beautifully decorated.
My table is large, one garland would not have been enough, the garland is not very wide. So, keep in mind how you're going to use the garland, you may need two.
Not the best of Valerie
I love Valerie's items as a rule and have several of her wreaths, but this just does not live up to the others that I have purchased over the years. The bird nests are cute, but the flowers and other ornamentation just look cheap. Maybe with some additional flowers are other decorations it would look fine. But I don't want to put more money into this item, it's worth paying to return. Sorry Valerie not your best. All the others seem to love it, so maybe it's just me...... But I will return
Robin Egg Green???
I ordered both the garland and wreath to match based on all the reviews. When I opened my boxes I was really disappointed to see greenish-yellow eggs in the nests on both the wreath and garland. They are ugly, not cute. The pictures on the website show blue eggs and Carolyn specifically says "blue eggs" in the presentation. These eggs don't look realistic at all. Will probably send back since it is so obvious.
I ordered both the wreath and garland and I am glad I did as they are now on wait list. Both are sooooooo beautiful. Thank you again, Valerie!
I rec'd the Berry Garland today along with the Wreath w/Bird Accents and they are both so cute. I cant wait till Spring arrives to put them up. I needed a Wreath for my Entry Door which is a Dark Green and this will look so cute on the door. The Garland will be going on my Entry Table. I dont have many decorations for Spring so these 2 items will be a nice touch.
Arrived very quickly when it was shipped. Just now opened it and arranged it on the dinning table. I would give it 10 stars if I could. Was secured well to shipping box. Very flexible and easy to shape like I wanted for the table. Great quality. Also ordered the matching wreath that I put on the front door behind the storm door. I'm always running behind on my seasonal decorating but this will be appropriate into early summer and beyond. THANK YOU QVC.
I needed something to dress up the dinning room table. It is perfect! I paired it with the nest and antique doves. What a great find. My grandchildren think its great Nana has birds nests with eggs on the formal dinning room table. They are waiting for them to hatch! I love the way it makes the table look invitIng and spring like. When it gets close to Easter, I will add a few ceramic bunnies around thr vine. For now I have tall candles intertwined, which makes it look elegant, but also natural.
Purchased the Garland and the matching wreath. Both items are just as listed and beautiful. I would recommend this to everyone and Valerie can decortate our home anything. All her products are OUTSTANDING. Thanks.
