    I wanted to get some fake flower petals since we have 4 flower girls and real petals are probably much more expensive. I ordered some from Papermart.com which looked nice. When I got them, I couldn't even get them out of the box because of static. They stuck to EVERYTHING. I tried to throw it but they got stuck to my clothes, each other, the box, everything. It was kind of comical but not usable at all. Just FYI in case any of you were to order from that store.

      I wonder if you somehow wrangled them into a mesh or paper bag, put in a few dryer sheets and shook them up, the static would go away? (Not in the dryer unless you know 100% that they wouldn't melt).

      Might be a way to save them?

        Or you could spray them with static guard, that might uncling them!

          Thanks for the tip. I was looking into fake ones since fresh are so expensive. I think I might stick to the free dried ones as they seem to be a less expensive alternative, Petal Garden has some good deals on 'Pathway petals'

              Definitely keep me in the loop regarding the quality when you get them. I still would like to get something but don't have much time left.
