I totally want to do this with white/yellow orchids. I thought about using ribbon, but fishing line may be easier. Maybe you can PM me an "instructions for dummies" version of how to create these!

*Cut the strands of fishing line at about 7-8feet to allow for extra length to tie around whatever huppa they use
*buy faux flowers that you can just pop off the bud from the greenery (Look for ones that have the plastic center that goes through the few layers of silk)
*Start at the bottom and work your way up (we made sure the flowers were facing upwards
*Take out the plastic middle, thread the fishing line through, then put the plastic middle back in with the fishing line already through it....it will make sense when you do it. This secures the flower in place, but you can still move it around
*We were pretty sporadic with using small, large, and different colored buds...I like the look of it being a little less planned out.
As far as traveling with them.....I had Andy take them down and wrap them very carefully around a piece of cardboard about two feet long, and one foot wide with all of the flowers nicely facing out, so as not to get squished. We will take them off and probably hang them to let them straighten back out when we get down there early in the week. Also, you can take a hair dryer to fishing line to get it straight.....that was actually Andy's idea....his great contribution
Anyways...let me know if you need more details! It was fun!
