Vintage Collection Hanging Fans
Very pretty and just fine for my needs.
These were purchased for my daughter's first birthday party. I don't understand the 1 and 2 star reviews. If you expect something that is super high quality for 6 decorations that don't cost and arm and a leg from Oriental Trading Company, you probably should shop elsewhere. A local party supply store would charge twice what these cost for the same quality.
I understand there will be negativity about these fans being printed on only 1 side. If I were hanging them in the center of a room or outside, this would be a problem. You could remedy that by purchasing 2 sets and hot gluing them together. I will be using them as part of a backdrop for a food table, so that won't matter for me.
As for the colors of these, they are very pretty. The floral one looks just like the picture. The light teal/green is also exactly like the picture. The pink polka dot is a peach-pink shade and a tiny bit lighter, but not really noticeable. The light pink is almost a white. The teal/green plaid one is plaid! If you are not looking at the picture very well, you might think it is chevron, but it is plaid and more in a greener hue than the teal color shown. It's not a grass green, but it's not really teal. The white lace looking one is exactly like the picture. The darker flowers in on it are somewhat gold in color.
I would recommend these, but if you need something double sided, be sure to get 2 sets or find something else. Also, a tip for whenever you use fan decorations or anything you have to unfold and use the little sticky tape provided, you should have some form of backup tape. A lot of times the tape isn't sticky enough and you will get mad when they come apart!

I bought these to use as centerpieces for a vintage garden party bridal shower. I opened them up and layer them flat between two candlesticks. They added some color and texture. Overall a great purchase!

One time use - against a wall
They're only printed on one side. Plus they're a little flimsy, I think I may have to repair one with some rubber cement.

Pretty vintage style
These are considered a wedding decoration, but, I used them for a double birthday party for my little girls. They are very pretty and easy to assemble....I only gave 3 stars because they are a hanging decoration and only one side has the pattern (if windy, or slight breeze..you get to see only white) , the sticky tabs that hold it together are not sticky enough, and I received one fan that was damaged (had a tear in middle ..so it would not stay together). They are a sweet vintage style though and plan to use them as decor in my girls bedrooms.
