Check out the orchids (white or red) available at Pier 1. They look really nice and very real! I just got the read ones to use in the centerpieces…one stem of orchid w/ curly willow stems and candles around it. Tried it out and it looks beautiful!

Good luck!

Just curious futuremominlaw…did you ever re-order from save-on-crafts? I’m thinking about doing the preserved orchids as well and was thinking about ordering from them.

@nene: i ordered some orange and blue ones and they don’t feel like orchids they are very stiff sort of like a dried rose or something like that if that makes sense. for what I need them for I think they are fine.

has anyone ordered the purple and white orchid? I’m trying to find out if it’s true to color or if it comes out more magenta looking. Thanks!

Hi,

I ordered the purple and white. They arrived Friday and they’re beautiful. They are true to the color on the site.

I ordered the purple/blue ones and they did look and feel more like dried leaves but this doesn’t really bother me. Here is my mock up.

Very beautiful pic ella86!  I am wondering how Save On Crafts packages to ship the orchids?  Does anyone know what they come in and if many get damaged in transport?  I live in Canada and they do not ship there, so I am likely going to have to drop ship to a USA address and pick them up or ship to myself from the drop spot.  I am planning to glue the purple/white thai orchids to branches and hang crystal beads.  Any info would be very much appreciated!  My wedding is in April so I would like to get a start on these but also wonder if anyone has suggestions for transporting the trees to my reception venue??  From the sounds of things these have lasting power? Thanks!

@chrisser7:  hey there. The flower come in a clear PVC box that has tucked lid. I would keep them in the box until you need them. I purchased the same ones picured above for my daughters sweet 16 for August 2010 and just found a missin box about 2 months ago and they are exactly how originally purchased intact and beautiful. I just purchased the blue and purple combination for my other daughters sweet 16 and they are fabulous. Good luck 😀

I friend of mine made some really cute centerpieces with live orchids for a party for her  Mom.  The coolest thing was that at the end of the event some of the guest were able to take home the centerpieces (me being one).  She told me the ordered the plants at http://www.orchiddistributors.com for a really good price.  We both live in NY.  The only thing that makes me a little nervous is if the plants will survive the shipping stress.  Hers seem to have done well but will that be the case all the time?
