Rated 4 out of 5 by cheers Pretty picks - could be improved
The leaves on these picks are lovely - really unusual. I adored the way these picks had been styled on the harvest edition of the "You're Home with Jill." I especially liked how all the picks looked in a white vase that was on the set. And I also loved the idea of cutting these picks to create cute, three leaf adornments for place settings or craft projects. I read the other reviews - and yes, the stems could be a bit more substantial for the price - in my opinion and also, the gilding should really be on both sides of the leaves so that you aren't limited in how you display these. Still, I do like these picks despite the flaws. (And the plastic brown stems were shown when the item was presented so this should not have been a surprise to anyone). I may use some floral tape to cover the stems at some point. At any rate, the leaves are beautiful and worth displaying (and you can't see the stems if you put these in a vase).
Rated 1 out of 5 by little shopper Disappointing purchase
Not what I expected. Very cheap looking. Paid more then I should. Guaranteed to be on lunch time special real soon
Rated 5 out of 5 by Julie92 I Was Afraid....
...to open the box because I read the reviews the same day these were delivered. I ordered two sets and absolutely love them! The leaves are so pretty ~ not garish or overly done. Yes, the stems are plastic but that makes it easier to work them into a tree (which is what I did with one set). I went shopping at a local craft store today and can definitely say these would be much more if purchased at a place like that. I'm glad I got two sets! Awesome item well worth the money!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Gemspirit Not What I Had Expected
I typically love the YHJ line and have no problems with anything....until now. From what I've seen before & the way they were presented; I expected them to be like the Christmas ones I purchased last year.
These are HUGE! The box they came in is so long so, I wasn't even sure if what was in there! Sure the measurements are in the description.....somewhere. But the hosts don't meticulously measure anything on QVC like they used to. I miss that a lot!
The leaves have almost a holographic appearance to them with the gold-brown & green and, they are nice for what they are.
I think it would be nearly impossible to add to a wreath or centrepiece unless they are cut up. They are meant for an opaque vase or vessel of some kind.
Not happy but; that's how things roll now I guess. No details anymore & too much $ to return.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Caaareful Shopper Lovely to look at, BUT
The color is what I expected and exactly what I wanted. They really are very pretty. However, be wary of that description "brown stem," since it is made of cheap plastic. Like another reviewer, I totally expected wrapped wire, like most good picks have. You can lay these down, or stand them up in a vase. Sadly, you will be hard-pressed to affix them to a wreath, garland, tree or chandelier since they do not bend or wrap. Very disappointed, but I will keep for their limited use.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Laci1 Pretty leaves but...
The overall quality isn't as good as other picks I've purchased from QVC. The "stems" and "branches" are flimsy and cannot be molded into shape; they spring back due to cheap plastic materials. Should have been wired. It's disappointing to purchase something from QVC that is of similar quality to goods sold at craft stores, what with the price and shipping.
Three stars only because the leaves are pretty.
