Party Lanterns - Purple
Worth every penny spent
This was purchased as decorations for our daughters wedding. The reception is in a barn and we needed things that we could hang from the rafters. We have hung what we ordered and are ordering more! They make a beautiful decoration for a fun yet formal atmosphere.

Fragile but good!!
I read most of the reviews before ordering these lanterns and thought if I could get 3 - 4 out of them I'd be satisfied. When they came I very carefully opened one and saw that some of the corrugations were sticking together. I went between the strips with my thumbnail and separated each one. I opened them all the way, watching for more sticks, slid one wire over the other and it looked beautiful. I did that with each of the 12 and in every case, all that was needed was TLC and a careful thumb!
Now I'll have to plan more places to use them.
P.S. I recommend you not leave Middle School boys in charge of this project!!! ;-)

Disappointed with this product. Out of the 10 that come in a pkg. Was able to salvage 3 of them. Did not open without indenting. Easy crushed. Defiantly for one time use. But very pretty.

This product is so easy to put together and looked great in a grouping with other fans and lanterns.
I used this lantern and other yellow and purple fans/ lanterns from OTC to make a grouping above the Easter dinner table. My guests (ages ranging from 2 to 94) were blown away!

Purple Party Lanterns Are Terrible Quality
I bought this decoration for my daughter's first birthday. I bought 3 packs total (two pink and one purple), and they creased sideways as soon as I took them out and put them together. They were poorly made and not worth the buy at all. Pay a little extra and get nicer ones, I know I will next time.

deflated volleyball like product
Many of these lanterns got stuck while opening and opened with huge dents that would not straighten out ever. Some of them looked like a deflated volleyball when fully opened up. Very disappointing.

Not what was promised
When assembled, these lanterns do not hold their shape and kept collapsing. After paying $15 plus that much for S&H I expected them to be spheres, not dented purple blobs.

Lantern Quality Unpredictable
Some lanterns unfold perfectly, in which case I would give them a 5-star rating. They are perfect for a party. Some lanterns cave in when you unfold them, and are basically unusable. If they all unfolded properly, this would be a great product, but given the variance in each lantern, perhaps the price should be lower to compensate for the ones that can't be used. I would recommend this product to a friend only if they have expectations set that not all lanterns can be used.

I was very satified with the quality and price of the product. The only thing that I was disappointed about is the color purple isn't as deep and pretty as it looks online. It was more washed out and dull looking. Still able to use them and they looked great!

Another great value!
All paper lanterns are fragile but these were identical to some I paid a much higher price for so I am thrilled..Great color and great price.
