Got my raffia fans

Recommended Posts

I ordered my raffia fans from Wholesale Wedding Supplies, Discount Wedding Favors, Party Favors, and Bulk Event Supplies

 

They were 50 cents each... Shipping and tax came out to about an additional $10(I ordered 4 dozen). They arrived via Fed Ex within a few days. Quality-wise, there are probably better ones out there, but for 50 cents I'm not complaining!

 

I am thinking about tying a fake orchid with satin ribbon to each one, or attaching our wedding programs to the handle using ribbon.

The bright pink orchids are from Michaels and are better quality. They almost feel like rubber. The purple ones are silk and are from Hobby Lobby. Both were 50% off so they were about $2.50 per stem.

I think they look great. Regarding the quality, I would think they are hand made with the intricate weaving so they will not all be perfect. I got a dozen from Oriental Trading too and they look good to me, much bigger than I expected. Since I got these just for the men, I must resist the urge to girlify them with ribbons and flowers, but I do love the way they look with punches of color.

Yep, satin ribbon size 5/8. I'm using glue dots to secure the ribbon- hobby lobby and michaels sell these in the scrapbooking section. I always burn myself with a glue gun so these are perfect for me. And they don't leave those glue strings.
