Rated 5 out of 5áby 4merNewEnglander A Great Holiday Gift!
We have purchased this centerpiece for several years now and really enjoy it. We have a small dining room table and the centerpiece fits perfectly. The lighted candle adds a special touch to every meal. We live in the desert of New Mexico and this centerpiece reminds me of growing up in New England. We have also had them delivered as gifts to relatives across the country - a reminder throughout the holiday season of our love for them.

Rated 5 out of 5áby chamois2013 Lovely Fragrant and really pretty!!!!
I have received this centerpiece as a Christmas gift for several years from my favorite Uncle and can share that it is just beautiful!! This year is no exception. It is exceptionally fragrant and well constructed. It is really pretty! It would easily go in a great room, a kitchen table or even an entry way - with or without candles. In past years it has held up well. The secret is to take it into your kitchen and give it a good soak so that the foam gets saturated and so when you put it out the next day there is no concern for water leak. Yes you could always transfer the plastic dish into a heavier crystal bowl you might have and use it on your dining room table --but it's not suppose to be that type of arrangement. Rather it's informal and elegant at the same time.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Mary66 Centerpiece
I have ordered wreaths and center pieces just about every year. This is the first time that I truly am disappointed. I did not send it back although I should have. The needles keep falling off and was like that when it arrived. I will not order this again.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TswithPockets Great Value & Quality
I have sent this to family as gifts and decided to give myself one last year as well as this year. Each time the centerpiece nicely made it through the shipping process. I did 'fluff' it some and of course I add water daily. My centerpiece looks nice throughout the entire Christmas season. The cost which includes shipping is a great deal. Similar arrangements made locally have cost me more. Thank you LLBean for continuing to provide great products at fair prices.

Rated 1 out of 5áby SusanPortland Very Poor Quality
The center piece was a TOTAL waste of money. Small, smashed, unattractive and in a cheap plastic container. Hard to believe this was almost $50 and that LL Bean put their name on it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby keepitsimplenana Merry Christmas!
I received this centerpiece yesterday as a gift. I wanted to review it because mine is much nicer than some previous reviews would have suggested. When it arrived in a plastic bag, I had some doubts. But, after watering and a tiny bit of 'fluffing' it has become a lively and lovely part of our Christmas. Don't forget to water...it's a small task with big rewards! Mine looks exactly like the picture online.

áby Beanie2011 Not good quality.
I received the Traditional Balsam Centerpiece (small) as a gift. When I opened the box nearly 1/4 of the branches had fallen off. The remaining branches were bent and uneven. I am also disappointed that there were no care instructions included. I don't know how to care for live pine. My advice is that this is not worth the money and definitely don't buy it as a gift for someone. I am attaching a picture... I think that says a lot.

Rated 1 out of 5áby scuffwearer Cheap Looking and Poor Quality
I recieved this as a gift and the minute I opened it I wanted to throw it out. Instead I gave it to my housekeeper. It did not look at all like pictured. It was shedding, otherwise looked artifical and the red bow was pitiful. It is an injustice to gift givers to make them think they are giving a nice gift that turns out to be an embarassment

Rated 5 out of 5áby Nickname23 Holiday Tradition
I've sent this centerpiece to my 4 siblings and a few friends for many years. Last year I tried to be less predictable and sent Swarovski crystal instead. A mistake. They let me know how much they missed the LL Bean greenery. It has become part of their holiday traditions. It is a consistently high-quality product and with addresses stored in my account,it couldn't be easier to send. And what's not to like about free shipping?

Rated 5 out of 5áby MadamP Lovely scent
Received this today as a gift (except mine was the small version, but apparently I can't review that one because it is now sold out.) The minute I opened the well-packaged box, I noticed the beautiful balsam scent, and it has all the holly sprigs and pinecones, just as pictured. Some previous reviews mentioned that there was no scent, and I just wanted to share that I had the opposite experience -- the scent was beautiful.
