Wish me luck w/ flowers...

I went today to order corsage, boutonnière and roses for tables for mom's party. Since it is Mothers day weekend they are not making corsages and I will bet roses will be way up in price. Darn..I forgot all about it. I usually go to the same place and have never had a problem w/ ordering this close to the date I need since they make them up that day. I told her forget it she would not get any of my sale..screw her.

My aunt wants to go to Sam's for the roses which is fine, I just thought I would see if I could find something of different colors that the florist could order.

Cross your fingers someone can make them for me. I am not talented or crafty or I would make them myself.

I was going to suggest silk flowers. My sis had them for her wedding corsages and for our mini bridesmaid bouquets. I know Michaels and even AC Moore or different craft stores sell them already pre made so you might want to check them out! GL!!

Thanks I will check silk or ask my aunt to check her favorite florist. I am betting some places will have corsages made up for Mothers day maybe something will be appropriate. I just don't get why the other place could not do it. My purchase would have been well over $100..that is a good sale imho.

I may even order online and have something delivered but I will check out a few places first.

I agree... that's ridiculous that they wouldn't take your order. Morons!

Oh Sue, I am sure you'll get it together and the arrangements will be lovely.
