Have you heard of "Wish Trees"? What would you expect to pay to hire one please?

This particular one is very pretty. It's a 7ft tall artificial willow with little gold birds and butterflies, quality cream cards with gold organza ribbons, glitzy pens and altogether poncetastic.

TIA

I should say I'm not touting for business here. It is a new project for me and I'm having trouble pricing it.
I think maybe this should go into a businessy-type-topic?

never heard of them.
I would not expect to hire one.

You haven't linked to it?

SherbertStraws Fri 10-May-13 19:07:56

What is it exactly?

GrimbleGrog Fri 10-May-13 19:09:46

I can link to an example. I don't have a page for mine yet, I'm just setting it up in my bricks and mortar shop atm.
Hang on...

this explains the idea but mine is nothing like this. More natural looking I suppose and larger. There are different packages to suit colour schemes and different occasions.

Never heard of them.

When/what are they used for?

NorbertDentressangle Fri 10-May-13 19:14:52

oops sorry X-posted. Off to read the link.

Oooh I like. Pretty!

I'd pay hmmmmm ..... £30????

<disclaimer am old gimmer who got married in a back garden 100 years ago at a cost of about £30 total>

I have seen them before and DDs nursery has a lovely one where the children hang their names in the morning. I think they sell them on not on the high street for £££

here is another good example, well explained.

As I said mine is more natural-looking but the principle is the same.

TBH I wouldn't have a clue although I suspect they probably cost more to hire than one would expect. They just have that air of 'expensive non-essential' item about them!

thanks, all input helps smile

Hello GrimbleGrog, I've done a bit of research on what a Wish Tree is and what it looks like and I came across this blog post

I think I would pay between £80 to £120 for a setup like this one

But I would want to keep it afterwards!

I'd like to know if you decided to go ahead with the idea, keep us posted smile
