Any suggestions for online afforadable silk flowers for an up coming event. I live in a small town and don’t have many store options. (I do have a Hobby Lobby). I want to do the grass look but with the colors and idea from the black and white and color look. I can’t break the bank and it doesn’t have to be the most amazing flowers. I have to do this for nearly 25+ tables on a shoe string budget.
Thanks In Advance

Jacquelinesc84: Why not just buy the trays of wheatgrass? Or, even grow your own- it’s easy. Failing that you could buy sod and cut it into strips to fit whatever base you are using for the centerpieces. That can be as simple as a foil tray, just tie a ribbon around the outside to cover the edges.
I’m quite sure real grass will be less expensive than fake.
You can then poke silk flowers into the grass or sod, or use real flowers from the grocery store in florist tubes.

I bought a few flowers online from afloral.com. I ended up not needing a couple of them, so I just returned… just keep trakc of the return date (I BARELY made it).
They were priced alright.
Save-On-crafts.com was another website that had a lot of options.
All of our flowers were fake. I got most of mine from Michaels, and a few from afloral.com

julies1949: That’s the plan. I was going to grow my own grass and then put flowers in the grass. It’s the flowers that I’m struggling with. This isn’t till Easter so I have to wait to grow the grass till than.
