Are you looking for paper parasols?  I saw both green and pink ones at Hobby Lobby.  I bought blue ones there.

I haven’t ordered from here yet, so I can’t attest to the quality- but I was seriously considering their silk fans as a replacement for bouquets : http://asianideas.com/paper.html

Another great place to look is in a local china town. They are much cheaper than ordering online and you can see the product quality right away.

@brooch: I dont know where you live, but depending on how much you need, I just got mine from ChinaTown in Vancouver. I know the bigger cities have districts like that.

I bought all the ivory ones off craigslist and mine for 9.00 from downtown.

I know someone already suggested Hobby Lobby, but I just bought a pink one from there and painted our date on it for pictures and I just wanted to mention that they are only $6 and they are decent quality! I’m not sure if you can use the 40% of coupon online, but that would be one heck of a deal!

@brooch: Chinatown in DC doesn’t really have…. anything.  If you were planning a NY trip it would be worth it to look though πŸ™‚

Ok I took pictures of my parasols that I bought from Hobby Lobby and painted our date on them…I know Hobby Lobby doesn’t have the best website for viewing their products, so just in case you were thinking of ordering from there, here is what the pink ones look like (I followed Mrs. Sewing & Miss Meerkats tutorials to paint them):
