Rated 5 out of 5 by Barb47 Beautiful and dramatic wall hanging
I have my plaque over the buffet in my dining room. It is large with very detailed "carving" - a beautiful and dramatic decoration. I chose the woodtone plaque out of the several choices in finish. I found the "wood" coloring to be quite realistic and pretty. It looks very nice above my wood buffet. The price is very reasonable for such a large and pretty item.

by BallardsLuvr Absolutely Love it!
My husband and I felt like with our tall ceilings (14ft) that we needed something to fill the dead space. I've been eying this "bring home ballards" piece for a while and took the plunge! This thing is sorta styrofoam-like which may bother some but because it's light weight I know it won't hurt anyone or anything if it were to fall off the wall(tho we used anchors)!!! I think it is so beautiful and one of my most favorite ballards purchases! We also have the wood pedestal, and I really like this piece too, and was slightly shocked at the size but I think it really works!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Purplerose Lovely
This product is lovely....it is attractive and lives up to its ratings. However, be very careful of color selection. I purchased the white/cream for the master bedroom that has walnut furniture. The gold is a little too much, so an artist friend of mine is going to darken it somewhat to match more of my bedroom décor. It arrived within a few days and in good condition. It is a little difficult to hang as it has two hooks on the back. I think it would be easier to hang if a wire was attached to the hooks. The plague is light weight for its size and I am looking forward to toning down the gold.

Purchased it with the intent to take it to my office but it is too pretty to take out of my home. Absolutely stunning plaque.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShopperinJersey It does the job
Frankly I expected it to be more on the creamy side -- it's a bit darker than I expected. But it fits well over our king sized bed. The gold that some reviewers object to isn't an issue with us, but the lack of "creaminess" is bothersome. It isn't a perfect world, and the plaque offers good value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Got2LuvIt This product has beautiful detail
I bought the grey finish and I love the item. The detail on the plaque is spectatular and the color will go with any decor. It looks like I could have bought it from an antique store.
I liked it when it first appeared in the catalog and couldn't make up my mind. As the price increased over the next couple of years, I was sorry I didn't purchase it when I first saw it. I was excited when it came back with it's original price and ordered immediately.

This is exactlly what I was looking for.
I was just wishing for the real one is good as I was expecting. I hang it on my bedroom, and did work! Good quality, gold parts are kinda too gold when you look at it closer, but I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ardball Great Huge Wall Plaque
The bouquet wall plaque is fine way to add a distinctive touch with an item that looks like an architectural remnaant and is actually an easily installed, light-weight piece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LovesVictoriana great detail
Love the depth and detail of this plaque. Packaging ensured it arrived in good shape. It is lighter in weight than you would expectand easy enough to hang.
Downside would be the added expense for shipping, which if I had waited another two weeks, it would have qualified for free shipping. Hope to keep and use this wall hanging for many years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TXHoosier This product is very versitale
This large plaque arrived quickly & was packed well. I originally planned for it to go in the foyer but found that it was ideal in several rooms in this house which has lots of wall space. I do wish it could have been hung using a center wire but the instructions specifically stated NOT to do that so we hung it using the D-rings which were attached. It's much harder to do it this way, esp. since it was hung high up & needs to be very carefully leveled. My meticulous husband, son-in-law & 2 ladders did a great job & we love the way it looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer looks rich and elegant
I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the piece, as it looks like a more expensive accessory than it actually cost. It makes the wall above our king bed "pop" and it works great with our pretty low-key style, though I can see it working equally great with someone else's more sophisticated or more ornate style

Rated 5 out of 5 by Willow wonderful design on this plaque
I have looked at this plaque for at least a year now and I finally broke down and ordered it. The plaque is just gorgeous! The design is wonder and so three dimensional. I brought it to hang over the bed and while large it does not overwhelm the room. I would recommed this item whole heartedly. You will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary118 excellent quality, attractive
I have been looking at this item for quite awhile now, just unsure as to the appearance in person. I was happy to find it more attractive than the catalogue picture. It is very sturdy, easy to hang, and of excellent quality.

I love my Grande Bouquet Plaque in Antique Grey which I have hanging above the mantel on our stone fireplace. It looks like the original French grisalle that I have pinned on my French Touch pinterest board! It has opened up a new direction for decorating my mantel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Misterigalexy Make It Yours!
I bought the antique gray plaque. When looking at the pictures one looked true gray & another looked more on the beige side. I was hoping it would actually look more gray but was disappointed when it arrived and looked very beige. So I spent about an hour painting it with a few shades of watered down gray acrylic paints and highlighted it with a gold leaf rub (comes in a tube from craft store) and VIOLA! It's gorgeous and exactly what looks best in my room. Also worth mentioning, it's much lighter than it looks so is easy to lift & hang. Looks great with my Ballard bedding too. Love this.

This plaque has a lot of detail but that is probably because it is made out of some kind of plastic rather than wood. The plaque is lovely and you really can't tell that it is made out of plastic from a distance.

This plaque surpasses my expectations! It looks heavy but is so light in weight and very beautiful. I purchased the zinc one even though it said for outdoor use, and I hung it in the entry of our home. It's beautiful!!! Love it! AND...Ballard Designs has great Customer Service if there is ever a problem. Thanks Ballard Designs!

We received our Grande Bouquet Plaque today and I was holding my breath....hoping it would be as good as the picture and description!! ABSOLUTELY!! I ordered the wood (brown) finish and the color and details were perfect! It was easy (and lightweight!) to hang and is over our king sized bed in the master bedroom. Since our decor of our house is French Country, it was a PERFECT addition!! If you like the picture, you will LOVE the real thing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by belle550 Substantial plaque
I ordered the plaque in the wood color. It is a pretty heavy and thick piece. I was planning to use it in a narrow hallway but it was too wide and stuck out too far. I thought it would be a very detailed piece with some depth but a little more than i thought. So i ended up using it in my family room, i really do like the piece but use it in a wide open space or as people suggested over a bed would be a great place too

by sassymamanj Looks impressive
Have eyed this for a long time and finally pulled the trigger. Glad I did. It looks impressive in my dining room, filling the space above the wainscoting. I chose the wood color as I wanted a warmer feel to the room. Shipping was quick and installation was easy (for my handyman, anyway!)
