I purchased this for my son's wedding. It was an outdoor wedding on the river, and it was just beautiful! I did not do the cross stitch. I purchased it for my daughter-in-law because she loves to do cross stitch, but it turned out to be a little to much for her at the time, so her Aunt did the cross stitch. She did a beautiful job, and stated 'it was so easy to follow'. Really dressed up the table. Great quality.
