I was so excited about these bouquets I saw from an etsy seller:http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=27405094
It was a bit pricey at about $90, but it was maybe going to be a splurge. Unfortunately the prices JUST went up on her etsy page–nearly $200 for a medium bouquet!!
I’m so sad. I wish I could make it myself, but they are really beautiful and definitely beyond my DIY capabilities. 🙁 Not fair!!!

Those are really cool but $200 is a lot. Maybe you can convo with her and ask for the original price. I know it’s far fetched but maybe she’ll give you a discount.

That’s a big difference in price. I wonder why she would make that big of a change to the price. I agree that I would try asking her for a reduction in the price.

Yeah I’ve seen these on esty. Honestly thats not worth it I mean they are pretty but they are still fake. Do you have any friends who are crafty ask them to try it out and make it. It really dosen’t look that hard you just need the differen’t flowers really. A few silk flowers, feather and/or lace then go to a antique store look for a cheap old broach or something and put that in there. I mean you could get a actual flower bouquets for that price.

Yeah…I will probably just go for a real bouquet. It’s not a huge deal, but it was gonna be my splurge and it was going to be something unique and different, without being totally “crafty” looking.
@leche4ever — unfortunately I am the craftiest of all my friends. I would barely trust them with a pair of scissors, let alone my bouquet!
I guess it just wasn’t meant to be–but by the time August rolls around, I might have a new idea for a “perfect bouquet” (and hopefully this one will be less than $50!!).
