When I went for a walk around my apartment complex, I noticed some of the neighbors have the exact same set. Since my balcony is so small and I rarely have visitors, I only set up one of the chairs. I plan to get a small succulent next to decorate it." —Bunny

It did take some time to wind them around the curtain rod, but if you follow the instructions and don't open them until you've tied them around the rod, they should not get tangled.

I usually end up leaving them laying over chair backs or recliners and cluttering things up, so I bought these to have a good place to hang them.
