Festive Mardi Gras Beads
I've used OT in the past for company parties and never had an issue with any item that was ordered. Now I need them to help me with my wedding reception, and the consistency is still there. I have additional items to order, and will do so with no hesitation!

What I Expected
Ordered these beads as part of our schools 5th grade Mardi Gras themed graduation party. The beads look great and will only to be used for decorations. I Read some reviews prior to purchase and figured they were going to be too small to actually wear (and they are). I'm referring to the bead size not necklace length. Length is nice and long, but the beads are super teeny. Imagine the size of a pea, now cut it in half, and cut it in half again. That's about the bead size. We plan on using them the wrap around plain white napkins and adding a mask and also to drape over the Jester and Street Sign cardboard cutouts sold on this site as well.

Mardi Gras -- Everywhere
Brought to celebrate Fat Tuesday before we enter Lent. Everyone has a smile when we hand out the beads. These are a great price for a wonderful pile of beads.

These are exactly what they appeared to be. Good quality, bright colors. Nice length. Very happy with them, thanks!

Best deal on the web!
I threw a Mardi Gras masquerade dance for my daughters 13th birthday and these beads were a hit! Best deal on the web by far!

Great Bang for your Buck!
I have searched the web for beads, even Mardi Gras websites that claim to be cheap, and this is still the best option I have found for the service, product, shipping and convenience. Oriental Trading Co. is the best and this is a great product!

The description should indicate that the beads are very small.

So small- not worth the cost
I bought these to use as a bowl filler for a Mardi Gras theme party we were having. The beads are SUPER tiny and with ALL of them together they hardly fit a decent size jar. I was very dissappointed- for spending this much money I expected they'd be perfect to fill the vase. Don't BUY THEM!

The bead's head size is smaller than expected, but was good enough for guests to wear about 6 strands around their neck while drinking. If you want the bigger bead's head size, get the other package, and pay the money. But after a few hours of drinking, no one noticed the size, and my guests were happy.

Product was not what I was expecting to receive. Beads were tiny and a lot were broken in half and couldn't be used as necklaces!
Very poor quality. Not what's pictured in catalog. Very, very thin beads!
