    THANK YOU!!! Michael's doesn't have coupons this week, so I'm definitely on the lookout for the next ones they send on email and I'm off to buy my supplies! Thanks again!

      Now, if i could only find calla lily buds, I would be in business!! hahaha

      nsbride2010: there are little calla lily's at Michael's too, if you're looking for boutonnieres, they are really pretty, very real looking and a lot smaller than the humongous ones...I took some pics so you could compare to the bout I already made. I think it was $3.49 a stem, and I didn't use a coupon for that one because I just bought one to try some other things out for all the Aunts...

      Also, don't know if I mentioned it before but my FI and I are both from NS!!! Only been living in Calgary for 2 1/2 years, and I miss NS desperately, especially since we've had the baby! Might have mentioned it to you before though! lol

      Hope this helps!! Glad to hear everyone is trying them, they are pretty easy!! Good Luck, when I figure out what I'm doing with the calla lily's I'll post those pics too! :o)

            Wow! I will have to keep my eyes open for those, I haven't seen them yet in Hali!

            I am a nova scotia native, and when I moved to Quebec to be with my fi, I missed it so much!! Now we are back, and he is at Dal actually!! So glad to be home :) and I know what you mean about the baby, it's a wonderful place to raise a child!

                    Hi SuzyQ, Thanks so much for the instructions, I bought some Orchid the other day at Michaels, they look a lot better than the silky one! And like nsbride2010, I love calla lily as well! I tried looking for them at michaels the other day and could only find the bigger one. I'll go back again this week and try my luck again.

                    Good luck and thanks again!
