In the right situation these would probably be fine. However I was using them with children and becasue they were rice paper they were flimsy and difficult to stand up. We used plain icing . I think, as in the picture, that thick butter icing would be beneficial.
Service and delivery excellent. However even after a first wash the material is quite stiff. Also colour and pattern quite different from the picture. Many more cream stripes and also some black ones which are not at all obvious. So although disappointed it is bright and a warm looking duvet cover at a good price.
