    Hi .. I made my own ... Dunelm Mill have a great choice and they are good quality.

    Your local florists may also have a selection as well image

    Helo,  I'm not sure where you are based but country baskets is really good for that.  If you go on their website they have a few stores dotted around the country.

    Hobbycraft - thats where I got most of mine from, also garden centres and I also bought some lovely fresias and also some bunches of orchids  from a couple of ebay sellers that I could recommend.

    brill thanks ladies seems like we all get our crafty side out when in need lol x

  • I can recommend The Flower King on Ebay - I got my Hawaian Orchids from them and they are so realistic they completely fooled my mum who couldn;t understand how it was alive! http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/thekingflower/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_from=&_ipg=&_trksid=p3686 

     

    Silk  Blooms also sell loose flowers and have great online feedback (my bouquet is on order with them!).

    It is worth shopping around as you can get some great fake flowers online (or garden centres / florists) - much  better than the stuff you get in most high street shops.

    Good luck!

    I got mine from Deco Flora. They're online and were reasonably priced and good quality.
