Hi Don, they are definitely metallic.

Brian, thanks for the story. We usually don't go to that part of town, and
only saw the giant balls because the building is on Middlefield. We didn't
know what it was, but google map said it's a mortuary, and I said, "so this
is the controversial Clubhouse" (for the readers: she got some
noise complaints a few years ago for holding holiday parties there).
Yesterday we actually drove down that street to Waverley to wave goodbye to
your ex-house, and I took a pic of a house decked out with Frozen theme
Christmas decorations. Later on, I found out that in fact it was Ms.
Mayer's house.
