I asked if there is any need to adhere it in place. Nellianna assured me that the rose clamps itself around the cord and sits firmly against the ceiling. A clear washer is sent along to ensure the rose will not slip down the cord if the paper should lose a bit of its stiffness due to wind or humidity. There is also a small plastic cup that fits inside the rose.
Nellianna offered to send me a ceiling rose to test out and also a short video that shows the way to install one. How nice to see this engineering marvel in person and yes, there is a good amount of tension within the sturdy paper folds; it clamped snugly around a cord. The package also gave me the chance to meet Kenneth and Nellianna via the cards they sent along... they're the ones with lampshades on their heads. :)

The beauty of these shades (aside from their literal beauty) is that the folded paper brings a warm glow to the chilly light of energy-saver bulbs. Can't you picture one of these lampshades with a matching ceiling rose above it? Perfecto!

Have a lovely weekend. I'm happy to say spring has sprung here in the northeast and hope it's nice where you are too!
By the way, this is not a sponsored post... it's my opinion only, written after receiving a ceiling rose sample by mail.
