Rated 4 out of 5 by Jord Bad Bad Berries but otherwise lovely!!
When I opened the box and saw these berries staring me in the face I nearly taped it back up for a return. Then I talked myself into looking at the piece with the thought in mind that I could rip the berries out of this beautiful centerpiece and replace them. This piece is truly a quality and well made item and looks as real as you can get. The assorted branches provide a lush fullness and the pinecones are large and perfect for the size of this piece. The lights are akin to the incandescent lights of old without that yellow tinge of the old LEDs. Now to the dreaded berries...they are so tacky and cheap looking...huge and hard plastic the size of small paint balls. They are in "cascade" like groupings, but because they are so chintzy and hard there is no flexibility to them at all so they shoot out of the centerpiece at all angles. I shall rip these out and replace them with some live barberry or holly branches that are so plentiful in my yard and problem solved! I can keep on replacing the holly for as long as I choose to use this piece throughout the winter. Seriously, Bethlehem Lights you owe it to QVC and the QVC customer to provide a better item than this. Cherish your relationship with this wonderful company and protect the reputation you have obviously worked at so diligently to earn. Enough said...
Rated 4 out of 5 by EnCoggNeeto Nice but could have been better...
These swags are a good size and shape. I like the various "greenery" colors and textures. This variation plus the pine cones gives it a more natural look. The lights are nice but I wish there had been a few more. However, the one drawback of this product is the terrible quality of the decorative berries... which look very cheap and unrealistic. Those will definitely have to be removed before I display for the holidays. Overall, I am happy with the swags since I can dress them up with some ribbon and decorative picks.
Rated 4 out of 5 by cbiskit Pretty Swag
This really is a lovely swag. Not so long that it would be overwhelning on a long table for a centerpiece or on an occasional table. I preferred the clear lights as I thought that would take it through the winter season, not just christmas. The branches are thick and different shades of green The multiple light functions are fun and having a timer is a plus. The ONLY negative aspect (as a previous rebview mentioned) is that the berries are plastic and kind of cheesy looking. I tried to blend them in, and that helped some. As others have said it would benefit greatly by some nicely placed fun 'picks' or ribbons. All in all a very nice swag.
Hot too big, not too small, just right! One other thing, the tag on the swag said to refer to the instructions after removing from the box. No instructions provided, but it wasn't too hard to figure out how to fluff it up ro enhance the overall appearance :-)
Rated 5 out of 5 by TNQVCFan Absolutely Fabulous!
I can't wait to use this swag! I just received it in the mail. I had to try it out so I put in the batteries and it looks exactly like electric incandescent lighting of old. It is full and lush...filled with different types of greens that give it color and depth. The lights are warm but bright. My husband thought I was crazy to buy Christmas so early until I gave him a demo. He is sold too!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by bevybear BEAUTIFUL LUSH SWAG
I put this on my dining room table last yr and added some ornaments that matched my tree
It is full and lush with pretty lights on battery box that has many features. like 4,6,8 hr timer
steady fading or glistening light feature and the batterys lasted from Thanksgiving well into Jan The best thing is that it looks real and you don't have to water it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by finddebs Very pretty; added fruit picks
Very pretty swag as is, but I added the beaded fruit picks in Jill's collection and (3 of them at bottom) and it transformed it into a Williamsburg type swag for an a wall hanging, table centerpiece or front door swag. Takes 3 D batteries, but the lights look very nice.

I ordered the 3' swag. It is much more lush than I expected which is a nice surprise. The clear lights are bright white, I gave it a 4 star rating because the red berries are poorly done. They scream plastic, & there is a very visible seam around the center of each berry. They didn't bother to sand them down prior to painting. I may remove them & add some better ones. Overall though, for the price this is a very nice decoration.
