This is her second-most-expensive item at $85.00. It doesn't seem like there is a lot of versatility or play value here, and the scale is on the small side for the 18" dolls (see photos). Not many people were interested in this on debut day, so it was easy to get close to and inspect. The arch is plastic and seems more suited to the quality of the Wellie Wishers line -- very lightweight and you had to be careful not to knock over the display. This set has a very grown-up feel and colour and doesn't seem like a good play match to the youthful feel of Blaire and her other accessories. However, if you like to play weddings or want to set up an arched scene/display, this may be just what you need. The cake was the best piece of the lot and fit well together. The paper decorations hanging from the pergola are adorable. I think you're looking at the lower plastic quality as seen in the Grand Hotel pieces on this one, if that helps anyone.

DD loves this. Set up was super simple and quick. The paper decorations can go on little hooks. I missed the row of hooks that are set back but DD saw them and easily put on the decorations there so it’s easy for a child to set up as they like or change. The paper decorations are like their real counterparts with the paper unfolding like a fan and a sticky tape to open and press together. The fabric is fed through and not just draped on top so it easily stays in place. The forks are a gold version of the heavy forks in other sets.
The cake has different cake toppers to change out. Each tier of the cake has a hole so anyone of them could have a topper. Two of the slices are removable to fit on the two plates. I do wish there had been a place to store the cake toppers that were not in use. A hidden drawer in the trellis or table would have been great. DD wants to change up the scene but I wish there was somewhere to store them since they are so small. The flowers do remove from the vase and DD likes to alternate them with the lavender in the accessory set. She also likes Blaire to hold them which is fun if you have another set of flowers.
