Well if you just put it in your luggage then technically you aren't checking it in but you can also have family members take stuff for you in order to space it out!
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.bestdesti...l-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.
