Bethlehem Lights Battery Op. 5' Hydrangea Garland & Timer
Very pretty. I ordered the pink garland (the only option left at the time I purchased). I thought it was a good buy at the clearance price, especially considering it is lighted. But I did think it was otherwise a little "skimpy", so wouldn't want to pay full price for it. Really wanted the wreath, which was not available, so I secured the garland around a plain grapevine wreath to make my own, and it turned out to be very nice. The lights are really pretty, and so far the lights and timer have been working perfectly. Overall I am pleased!
Glad I ordered 2 garlands on clearance for my fireplace mantel. I missed my Bethlehem Lights Christmas garland. Both were perfect and the timer works great. I gave this only 4 stars because of where I joined the two in the center I had to hide the rings with a hydrangea from another arrangement. I will not have to wait until the holidays to enjoy the lighting.
I was really looking forward to receiving the garland. I have the matching wreath that I purchased last year and it was lovely. The garland....not as nice, and the box was filled with broken off berries and it just wasn't as lush with flowers as I had expected. Just not worth the price, so back it goes. Very disappointing
Beautiful Garland and wreath
I purchased the hydrangea garland and wreath, the garland is on my mantel and the wreath is on the inside of the back door which is right beside the fireplace, I am very pleased with my purchase and plan to buy more. I love everything about these items.....overall rating 6 stars
this garland is definately not worth $50 (with shipping and Tax)
looks cheap, loose pieces, leaves, flowers, etc in box when I
opened it. Hydrangeas very out of shape and no matter how much I try I can't fix them. I should have listened to other reviewers.
Beautiful Springtime Flowers
So beautiful I had to write a review. Purchased 8 garlands in pink and 3 matching wreaths to decorate for my mother's 90th birthday party. Her birthday was 2 weeks before Easter so I am still enjoying spring indoors even though it is cold outside. I used the garlands to decorate the backs of the dining room chairs, the china cabinet and buffet and the fireplace. I added large butterflies to the garland on the fireplace and a pink satin ribbon bow to each wreath. It was breathtaking. Our family and friends were awed by the beauty but not surprised it came from QVC. They know I love to shop at QVC. I might order this set in lavender next year if it is available. There is nothing like this in retail stores. That is why I love QVC.
I bought the garland for my mantle. It looks so pretty with my flameless candles. Some of the reviews say this is skimmy. I think it looks full and the lights are bright. I had no problem hiding the battery box. I purchased the pink. It has some very dark bright pink in it also. I have purchased several Bethlehem decorations for Christmas and have had for several years with no problems.
VERY Pretty BUT..annoying battery box
This is so pretty but I had to return because the heavy battery box prevented me from hanging it properly. How do you work around this? I should have thought of this earlier. You can't tuck it in like the others ...ugh..otherwise it's stunning when lit - if you can figure a way around it or it doesn't need to be draped over something.
Nice but Skimpy
This garland is nice but not as full as a 6' Hydrangea Garland I purchased a few years ago. I had purchased this garland for my Mom and was disappointed when I saw it. It definitely is not as full as some of the other garlands. Bethelem lights has always had beautiful products but this garland is definitely very sparse...not enough flowers or greenery.
So Real Looking
I bought the green version of the wreath at Christmas. The one I received would not light, returned for exchange with no problems. It is absolutely gorgeous and can't wait for spring to put up after I take my winter wreath down.
I like this item but do wish it was a little fuller. I use on my mantle.
OK, but Expected Nicer for the Price
The garland functions properly and is as pictured, but the materials are disappointing. It has a "plastic" quality and some of the flowers and berries came off when handled. The edges of some of the flowers and leaves are frayed and had to be trimmed. At $40 I expected better quality.
I have it situated in place and it looks OK so I will keep it. I had planned to buy one for each season but I'm re-thinking buying the other garlands offered by BL.
