Sheer weave with tree designs (20) in many different colors (green,orange, purple, blue, and yellow) with flower border. There are two rows of trees. The bigger row of trees is closer to the outside edge, while the smaller row is directly above the bigger one. Both types of trees have a design with a line down the middle, a triangle base, and two diamond shapes on the top. With the bigger trees, there is a smaller diamond of a different color on either side of the top. The bigger trees have two different levels of branches which has two diamonds stacked on top of each other on either side, and small diamonds in between these two. There is also a diamond directly above the uppermost branch, which is getting split in half by the trunk. For the smaller trees, there are three diamonds on each side that attach directly to the trunk and have two different colors. The lace at the bottom resembles flowers, where the flower's petals make the edge of the cloth, giving it a scalloped shape.
