Got this for my mom she really wanted one. I thought it was kinda ugly in the pictures but it turned out beautiful once decorated.she has lots of glass ornaments that stood out on this tree the light is able to glow through them since there's no needles or branches to block the light. some almost looked like they were just floating there. Really happy we got white instead of black like we were looking for. She had it it front of the window and got many compliments.
