I originally ordered the gold tree to use as a decorative addition for my wedding. Unfortunately it was out of stock, so I purchased the black one instead. It is a really nice product & substantial in size. Instead of paying hundreds of dollars on a much smaller version from my florist, I decided to purchase this tree with the hanging beads & some hanging tea lights. I added green moss, ribbon & silk flowers. It came out exquisite. The only warning I have is that when I lit the tea lights (sort of a practice run) since its made of rubber, a couple of the branches that held the tea light holders actually started melting. I decided to use the battery operated tea lights instead. Hopefully, this will resolve the problem. All in all, I would definitely recommend.
