I now live in Florida and wanted a symbol of home to hang on my house. These ristras are beautifully done and very light! The red color pops! The packaging was also amazing - lots of paper stuffing, very little plastic, and everything arrived secure. I'm going to add a bow to the top to disguise the hook I hang it on. Would be amazing if that could be an add-on item for those of us using them for decor.
