I keep getting these catalogs in the mail…How is the quality of these items? Specifically I need favors, centerpieces, and maybe some of the kid’s gifts. Also they have some "foil table confetti" red and white hearts…cute or tacky?

I think they are on the cheaper side. You get what you pay for… but some items may be work just fine. My sister in law did get a few items from there and liked it. Maybe try it out, you can always return!
I’ve seen confetti at weddings, not my personal favorite. Too messy and to me, makes it look like a party.

They are def. on the cheaper side, some of there items are pretty good but others not so much. It really depends on what items you are looking at. I order from them all the time for simple cute work related things. My Mother In law order me some bubbles and card bell things from them that I absolutely hate!
So it’s hit or miss

I’m probably ordering some kids’ gifts from them (the bride & groom rubber duckies), but I’m hesitant to order other stuff from them… I haven’t seen their wedding stuff, but I’ve seen their party stuff, and it does kind of look cheap. On the other hand, a friend-of-a-friend needed to host her own Rehearsal Dinner for cheap, and used lots of Oriental Trading stuff to host a casual "tacky luau" themed Rehearsal Dinner. I think it worked well for them… they’re both pretty silly.

I ordered personalized favor packaging (cookie bags) from them, and they look just fine. But they are certainly nothing fancy, and I wouldn’t have too high of expectations for most things Oriental Trading sells.

I ordered our aisle runner, children’s color mats for the reception, and some cheap hankies for my grandparents that I took to a local embrodiery place and had them put our wedding date on… so for me I am like them.
I did purchase some favor bags that i wasnt happy with, but I returned them and they gave me my refund without an issue…
Hope This Helps

I don’t like a lot of the stuff they have in the catalog because they look flimsy, BUT I did end up ordering my bubbles from them. They are the ones in a champagne bottle and were on the more expensive side of their bubble selection, but I am happy with my purchase. I looked through other websites and those were the ones I liked the best. I’m having my wedding at a winery and bought a silver champagne bucket to hold all of the little champagne bubbles.

Just an FYI, if you look at their website, they allow customers to leave comments on the products.

I do have to say, I’ve been having fun looking at the "inexpensive"/ cheap little kits for kids. I think it would be neat to find a few different things for kids to do, it helps the parents, and maybe families can stay a little longer with kids entertained.
Yes, there’s some inexpensive stuff, but things like the airplane gliders would work for kids of all sizes (and my fiance’s a pilot so it works…) and then possibly something else like decorating a butterflies, or make your own puzzle, or a fuzzy picture.
My coworker regularly orders stuff from this company, most things she orders are decoration, definetly "dollar store" quality stuff.
