Marble-Look Fluted Columns - 4 1/2 ft.
Good deal for DIY decorators
I was skeptical when buying these because they are made of cardboard, but they look great! They will be perfect decorations for my reception and I plan to decorate them with tulle and lights. They are even sturdy enough to put some flowers on top of and you could always put something heavy in the bottom if you are afraid of them tipping over. It only took me about 5 minutes to put each one together too.

These are surprisingly realistic and very sturdy. It does help to put something heavy in the bottom like a 10lb. bag of cat litter if you are using them outdoors. I purchased all 3 sizes, and they look great.

Looked so real.
Great value for the money. Easy to assemble. Looked so real. Sturdy enough to set a medium sized artificial flower arrangement on. The wedding was held in a hall thus lacked the settling of an alter for the Bride and Groom. Didn't want to do the arch thing but needed to give definition to the bridal party's space. By using both the tall and the shorter pillars that space was beautifully created. Gave the perfect definition to the space.

Was very dissatisfied with item
Was very dissatisfied with item, it didn't state it was cardboard, and when i purchased it and received it was cardboard not better weighted material. We were using it for an outside wedding and cardboard will not do

I thought the cardboard would be heavier. It's not, you definitely couldn't set anything on these and if someone brushed up against them, I'm not confident they would remain standing.

CARDBOARD!! THEY ARE CARDBOARD!! They look like horrible and they are extremely annoying to put together! For this price, I would defiantly try to find another place to order these columns! Who charges this much for cardboard?

not so great in person
I bought the 4.5 coloumns which are made of cardboard. The columns didn't stay together when we built one. Not good for outside because the wind was blowing them over. It just didn't look good.

Best entranceway to an event
My family and friends all laughed at me when I bought all 6 columns in varying sizes to create the picture on oriental trading. we used the columns, grecian urns we ordered off of Marti on ebay to match the picture, and the white fabric wrapping sold on oriental trading. All the comments at my weddingt were so favorable that the hall owner wanted to know where I got the columns. My video is outstanding as the bridal party comes through the columns. I have already had a future bride order the columns last week as well due to my event and have several others who want to buy from oriental trading. I love this purchase. By the way I had my brother who is 50 and my niece who is 12 put it togehter. It took them about three hours to create the most beautifyl artistic display.

What a Disaster
Difficult to put together. Had to use a lot of tape and glue. Then still had to hide the edges with tulle and put rocks in the bottom to keep it straight. Ended up throwing them away. Definitely not worth it.
