6' Cascading Christmas Garland 4.3 5 195 203
Kind of wimpy compared to photo I was so thrilled when I found this & wasted no time ordering it. Now that it's here my excitement has worn off. The portion that rests directly on the mantle is nice & full. However the cascades are NO WHERE NEAR as lush as the photo depicts; they're rather skimpy in comparison. The cascade in the very center (focal point) has NO lights on it at all. NOT ONE. Also two of the cascades on either end are too short; they barely 'cascade' at all...and my mantle is only 7" deep!!! Those two hang down maybe 3-4 inches; they look kind of like someone clipped them off accidently. It's still better than what I've done in the past, but for a product having a Martha Stewart tag hanging on it (didn't realize it was a MS item), I would expect more. Too bad we can't upload photos with our reviews. It does add a slightly upscale/custom look, but I'm going to have to add in a few things to fluff it up. Glad Michael's is having a half-off sale!!! December 12, 2011
It looks awesome! Loads of compliments I read ALL the reviews before I purchased, but figured for the sale price I would take my chances. So, garland arrives and I take it out of the box and it definitely looks flattened from shipping, but I'm used to having to fluff up my Christmas wreaths after they have been in storage so I'm not deterred. I put on a Christmas special, lay the garland out on my living room floor like directions paper says to do, and I get busy fluffing, section by section. An hour later, I'm done and garland looks beautiful. I mount on mantle easily by myself. I plug it in and and have no issues with the spacing of lights, they too look great. A few things to consider: 1) May be too bulky for a smaller mantle. 2) Product may look scraggly and cheap until you fully separate the branches and fluff. Many of the longer sections are folded in half from shipping. Major difference after some TLC 3) I have nails in my mantle to hold up the stockings, they helped with holding up the garland since my mantle was too wide for the holders on the ends to work December 13, 2013
Like how it looks I wanted something for my fireplace mantel. This looked great in the catalog and I will admit that I like how it looks now that it's up, BUT...there were absolutely no instructions on how to hang it and just one hook on each end of the garland. That was useless. I had to bend pretty much all of the garland up to a depth of about 1 1/2" to give it a "lip" that could rest on the edge of the mantel. I used "command" hooks (that can be removed) on the two ends of the mantel to bend the wires at the ends of the garland around, to hold it up. We also ended up putting a board covered with batting (to look like snow) on the mantel so that the Christmas figures I put on the mantel were raised above the depth of the garland "lip." Then we could also screw a cup hook into the front edge of that board in the middle of the mantel to help support the garland, otherwise it would dip down like a swag effect. I realize this sounds complicated.....my husband was probably peeved with how much more effort HE had to put into hanging this.....but it DOES look nice now. December 3, 2012
Very Real Looking I ordered a quantity of 4 - Cascading Christmas Garland. The garland is approximately 6' long with a metal ring at one end of the garland and a metal hook at the other. Those are there to hook together adjacent garlands or place on a nail to hang the garland. There are 2 long cascades placed about 9" from each side of the garland & 1 long one in the middle. There are shorter cascades between all long cascades. There are three different types of greenery in the garland to give it some visual interest and make it more real looking. The lights are distributed evenly on all four of the garlands I purchased. I gave this product a 4 star rating because one of my garlands had messed up cascades. But the other 3 are wonderful greenery to add to my window sills & fireplace mantel. I hang the 4th in a less prominent spot. These are a great addition to my Christmas decoration collection! January 3, 2014
Stunning I have been wanting to purchase this garland for quite some time. After reading other reviews and knowing my mantle was 6 1/2 ft long, I have been hesitant and put it off. I tend to decorate with a very upscale look and care about quality. I finally took the plunge and ordered it. The garland is absolutely stunning on my mantle. It has to be secured (which is not a big issue and is to be expected), since it is substantial and does sit near the edge. I took the end cascades and stretched them out and over the ends of my mantle which created a swag-type effect with the center being slightly longer. The cedar and new growth pieces are plastic, but add to the character of the garland and does not make it look 'cheap'. I wish you could see just how beautiful it is. I am more than very pleased! December 15, 2013
Very Disappointed Made my very first order. I ordered the pre-lit garland which i really liked until the lights quit working after only two weeks. It took me an hour and a half to remove the old lights and put new lights on that I had to purchase. I would have returned it but it would have been a hassle and I wouldn't have it for the christmas holiday. My second purchase was a pre-lit 5ft alpine tree. The tree was nothing like the catalog picture. Additionally, the middle of the tree trunk was very crooked and wouldn't stand up straight. It was not fixable. I did return the tree and was very disappointed. Grandinroad has a great catalog but inferior products. I don't know that I would ever make another purchase from them. December 7, 2013
unbelievable garland This garland is beautifull I received a ton of compliments, one set stopped lighting after a week but they shipped me out a new one right away with no problems. Wanted to buy for my mother but I guess it is now sold out. Maybe next year! Garland is very full and very easy to work will. I wondered if I could use it outside as well if so I would by more for myself. January 1, 2013
Gorgeous Garland! Ordered two lighted garland greens for my fireplace mantles. They were delivered promptly in about 5 days. They arrived in working order. I removed them from the box and fluffed them out, arranged them on my mantle and they look great! You can bend the wires so they will stay on the mantle with out having to nail them down. They look authentic and the quality is very nice. I used the second one on my upstairs railing instead of the mantle and it looks nice as a swag over the railing. Both garlands are on timers so I do not need to plug in and out each night. The garland comes with a lot of lights and they are all in working order. December 19, 2013

Answer: 
I think there is probably a "front side", but (a) I couldn't figure which it was, and (b) once I'd decided which way around it had to go (to make the power cord hang on the side closest to the outlet), whichever branch needed to be turned around to face the front was easily manipulated to do so. So I would think that it probably doesn't matter which way you hang it.

We appreciate your interest in this item. This garland is not meant to be attached to the mantle and does not include any hardware to do so. The item is simply placed on the mantle and is substantial enough to stay in place. Should you wish to anchor this to a cement mantle, we recommend visiting your local home-improvement store for hardware recommendations. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Answer: 
Not sure of the answer to your specific question - but there is a main thick wire that everything is attached to. I hung mine on my wooden mantel with command hooks. It's not really that heavy so if you can find something sermi-permanent that would stick to your cement, it should hold. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Don't know if this will help, but it actually comes with metal clips (for lack of a better word) on each end, which makes it easier to attach to something. Not sure about attaching it to cement. It does bend, so I used it on a buffet but did not want to put holes in the buffet and it stays perfectly just by bending the branches.
