Did you find somewhere for the silk flower? I'm using them for my centerpieces as well but don't know where to look

 

I'm not DIY either - I need an entourage lol

 

I haven't found any silk flowers in particular. I stumbled across them when I was browsing the forums and I found this post http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/77883/my-real-touch-flowers Her flowers are OUT OF THIS WORLD beautiful. They damn near cost almost the same amount as some real flowers/resort prices lol. But I was impressed. So that's where I got the idea of possibly having silk flowers versus real flowers. They photograph so nicely. I think i might be able to pull it off. MrsD you live close by... we could do it in a weekend!!! lol

 

So my task now is to find these flowers, buy them in bulk possibly and try to do pomanders.

OMG! So beautiful! Love the colors!!! My colors are Coral and Turquoise and this would be perfect!

So many things to do and consider!

 

I am up for meeting up sometime, I'm training for the marathon so my weekends are occupied with long training runs but I'm sure we can figure something out or wait until after Nov 3rd lol

Those pomander balls are costing me $85 at the resort. To make them isn't much cheaper. It's the stupid balls that cost the most plus you need a decent size and lugging them in a carry on isn't going to work depending on how many you want. Its about 22 flowers per ball if you use daisies and more for roses. There's a ton of DIY sites on how to make them

I didn't look to see how much the resort is charging. I just thought it would be unique. Plus I'm trying to cut some corners... clearly I have a little more work to do.
