These weren't expensive, thank goodness. They resemble something from the 1970's when all artificial flowers were plastic. Though these are shaped well, they are hard, heavy plastic. I was so surprised when I opened them. For some reason I was expecting them to be silk. Maybe I missed something. I'll find use for them somewhere so it's not a complete waste. But don't expect quality unless you're looking for genuine plastic!
No, I would not recommend this product to a friend.
