We have long tables at our reception site, and right when I found that out, I knew I wanted to use an idea I had seen here on the boards about Martha’s luminaries. To add a little extra something on the tables, we were going to line the iace luminaries with petals…and after sitting down with some of my girls and calculating out how many we need to do this…our math led us to this ridiculous number…10,000 petals!!!
So bees, where can I get 10,000 pink petals without breaking the bank????

I know around this time (bc of VDay) they sell bags of flower petals in white, pink and red at the dollar tree

Check the dollar store – you can get 48 bags of 300 petals for $48 – that’s over 14,000 petals – more than enough!
Edit – just wanted to add, the ones at the dollar tree are pink and red. You can get just pink at Oriental Trading for $4.00 for 200 petals. More expensive, but it’s all pink.
