"I was pleasantly surprised when I received the banner. I opted for the standard size banner which will work out perfectly. Maybe if I was having a party with more people I would have gotten a bigger banner, but this is for a 2 yr old's bday party with probably 20 guests. The overall quailty far surpasses those flimpsy plastic birthday banners. I definitely would have paid more for this. I will be hanging this up in my birthday girl's room after that party!"
