Great Buy...Looked great
Purchased for a Daddy / Daughter Dance Luau .....They were great. Only one out of the 144 was broken. Great buy.

Cute, but a pain
The umbrellas were cute but are poorly made. You pretty much have a 50/50 shot of an umbrella "working". Many of them tore up, wouldn't open all the way, things like that. The ones that worked were great, but it was a pain to have so many that didn't.

Hit of the party
Bought these to make a wreath for the front door. Ended up being the hit of the party. A few opened wonky or broke, but we had a ton! I made the wreath and most of the box was left! I am so glad I didnt buy both styles ( I thought about it) We used them for snacks, for dress up, and my mom took a ton home for sangria night with her friends.

Better than expected
I must say I was pleasantly surprised with these little umbrellas. They are of pretty good quality considering you get 144 of them for less than $6.oo. I used them in centerpiece arrangements for a family reuion (beach theme) and they looked fantastic.

Great for a the luau party. You do have to take off a rubber band off each individual umbrella and push up another band to get them to the "open" stage so you can put them in drinks for the traditional decoration. They are super cute, but if you need lots of them give yourself plenty of time for assembly. They are pretty sturdy even though the materials (paper and cardboard) are pretty thin.

I made a summer wreath with the umbrellas I purchased. Based on the reviews I knew that some of the umbrellas would be unusable or damaged and true to many of the other reviews they were BUT there were plenty of usable umbrellas!
I only wish that the package would have an even number of each color of umbrella. I had a ton of orange and blue!!

Good for the price
got these for teacher Appreciation week. They were great! none were broken when we received them. The down side to them is that in order to keep the umbrella open, you have to slide up a little pink rubber band. On about a third of them, the rubber band wasn't tight enough to "lock" the umbrella in place and so those were pretty much unusable. But, it was such a good deal even if this only came with 96 usable ones I still would have bought them!

Exactly what you would expect from paper cocktail parasols. A couple duds but most were good.
