Bethlehem Lights Battery Op. 17" Tulips in Metal Vase w/ Timer
I purchases 2 of these tulips in the pink color..I love them. The metal vase is very nice. Such a great purchase. I only wish they were still available in the white..I would purchase 2 of them!!!
very nice !
This is a really great piece lit up or not. Nice touch to any decor, have had lots of compliments.
Nice, but cannot be removed from the black vase.
I read many of the reviews and quesion/answers before ordering these, and decided to get them because someone said in the question/answer area that the flowers could be removed from the base and put into another vase. I have a crystal vase that has tulips etched into it, and this would have been perfect.
I ordered the "pink", understanding that there is a good chance they would in fact be purple, based on reviews and the photos. I was right about that - there is NO pink to these flowers at all! That's ok though, as I wanted purple anyway.
I removed them from the box, and yes, I noticed a slight odor. Slight. Not strong or overpowering by any means, unless one were to stick their nose down inside them. They aren't real, so I can't imagine why a person would want to do that. (It's been about 6 hours since I opened the package, and there is no discernable smell.)
When I tried to lift the flowers out of the black vase they came in so I could put them into my crystal vase, they wouldn't budge. I tried numerous means and methods for at least 30 minutes, to no avail. THEY DO NOT COME OUT! The stems are molded into some sort of foamy plastic material that is permanently adhered inside the vase. As a matter of fact, the case does not come out of the curly wire-looking stand either, at least not without breaking something.
I am not crazy about the vase. It appears to be black plastic, and I feel it cheapens the overall look. I am going to wait until the 30 day return period, and if everything is still working well (timer and lights), I will carefully mask off the flowers and foliage and spray the rest another color so that it doesn't look so obviously plastic. The quality of the vase is why I do not give it 5 stars.
I ordered the pink tulips and they are quite lovely, but the odor is HORRIBLE. I put these outside in our covered lanai overnight to see if the odor fades...I hope it does as I really like them.
I bought these because of the 5 star reviews. I must say they are very pretty with lights on or off. I bought the pink.
Very Pretty but....
Very pretty but there are two things I wasn't happy about. The odor that comes from this when they come out of the box, which I assume will go away over time, since I do want to keep these. It really hit me and it's bad. Second, I know there are comments about it being real looking so I was excited about that. As pretty as they are I just didn't get that feel. You can see the matching green wires along the stems and the petals look like fabric, although better quality.At least you can bend and work with the leaves to cover them up. But again, it is still attractive and the lights within make them well worth it. The lights are delicate and can shine in the dark nicely. The decorative stand they are in is very nice as well. Just thought I'd give my perspective for a heads up.
I purchased these beautiful tulips in white and they are just gorgeous. The tulips and greenery are so real looking and the vase is fantastic. The tulip arrangements is absolutely one of my favorite Bethlehem Lights purchases and believe me I have purchased many. I highly recommend these beautiful tulips. I am going back to order the pink and red for a gifts.
Love These Tulips!
I just reveived these tulips and they are beautiful. I got them in pink and they are on my kitchen table. I love how the stems are bendable. The clearance price was great as well. Thank you QVC!
Even nicer than expected
I ordered the red tulips and they're gorgeous. They look very real, both the flowers and the leaves. In fact, my (grown) daughter thought they were real, until I turned them on. The stems are bendable so you can "arrange" them and bend them to look even more realistic. The metal vase is very nice too. Love how they look with the lights on. The mechanism to turn them on/off and use the timer to turn them on/off at the same time every day is easy to use...even for me! They're also sturdy as my cat knocked them off the shelf on the first day, and they were fine. Would highly recommend these and may get another one in white for my guest room. Very pleased with this purchase.
Received these last week and they are beautiful. I got the white so I can use them anywhere. Not sure I would use the lights until the holidays....but who knows.
I was totally shocked when I opened the box and saw how beautiful this was. I ordered this in red and they look so real. I was hesitant in getting another until I saw it. I am going to order another for a family member's birthday gift. My mother had recently purchased a candle holder by Valerie made with tulips and they were all smashed and I had to return it. However, these tulips are perfect! You will not be sorry with this purchase!!
Absolutely Love IT!
I purchased this on a whim -- "just to see what it looked like"--I purchased the ivory tulips to place on a table in the entry of my home. Thought it would be a nice "light" to have on when I came home after dark. I have to say I am totally in love with this item. The leaves are very pretty and easily moldable into a lovely shape. The tulips look very real (like the ruffled tulips you grow). You can arrange the stems to look however you wish. I'm going to purchase another one to place on my vanity in my bathroom as a "nightlight". Outstanding item Bethlehem Lights!!
