Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CraftyMommawithGirls Gorgeous Parasols
I bought these for my daughter's b-day party. They were definitely the hit of the evening. All the kids loved painting the parasols. They are delicate, so I think they are a craft for older kids who can handle a paint brush softly and without globbing the paint on. We had no problems with 8-11 year old girls. The parasols were an absolute hit with all the girls and the mothers ooohed and ahhhed the next morning when they picked up their daughters. I only wish they came in different colors and not only white.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsDude BEAUTIFUL! Used them for an outdoor wedding...
I got married outdoors at sunset. I wanted something to shade my guests from the last rays of the sun, and add an additional *pop* to the isle. Enter the parasols. I got one box (a dozen) and all were perfect. I bought red silk rose petals and used a glue gun to glue them randomly over the white paper. They looked amazing! I got more compliments on them...and they were a cheap, super easy decoration!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LuvParasols Great Buy
Bought these parasols based on the recommendations of others. Speedy delivery and parasols immaculately packaged. Great quality and the price is impossible to beat. Am using at my hot summer's wedding for the guests to shade under - will definitely buy more.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kidrazr Very cheaply made!
I thought this would be good for an outdoor wedding so guests could have cover from the sun. However I ordered a dozen just to see how they looked. They look horrible. Out of 12 only 7 were usable. The paper was torn on some of them. The handles looked awful. The piece that keeps them open didn't work or was missing. Not recommended for a nice event. Maybe a kids project. I couldn't even paint them to look better. The paint made the flaws stand out even more.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kemm Bought for wedding. Was pleased however I'm glad I opened each one because 4 out of the36 were broken and I had to glue them at the base.
Really good for a beach wedding without spending a lot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CariPT Great fun for kids and adults.
I bought these for my daughter's birthday party and they had a wonderful time painting them. Now they play with them and pretend they are going to the beach or having a picnic and need sun protection. Even with my almost 3 year old they have held up well and the extra ones were a fun activity for me when I wanted to relax and just create something at night. Great product. Versatile, durable and easy to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TrailMonkey Great price, quick delivery, good quality
Bought 2 dozen for an outdoor wedding. We haven't checked all of the umbrellas but those we have opened are in good condition and work fine. There is no blue Oriental Trading stamp on the umbrellas as reported in other posts. These seem to be very good value for the money and the standard shipping was pretty fast.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Spateach15 Not a great experience as a teacher
I order a set of 12 Chinese parasols hoping the girls of my class can create and design their own for a dance at our school. To my surprise, 3 of them came to me and said they were not able to open them and if they opened they did no longer function properly. So now I need to find ways to fix them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jast Good product
The umbrellas were very nice and sturdy and were very much needed for our guests as they watched a wedding ceremony in 90+ degrees.

Will be incorporating these paper parasols into the décor for a black/white party in celebration of my son's upcoming wedding. They are perfect for the plans. Would definitely recommend. Best price around!
