Sola Flowers

Tia & Don, on Nov 16, 2011 at 3:18 PM Posted in Do It Yourself

Anyone ever use these flowers or seen them used in another wedding. My wedding is in Mexico and Im thinking of using them. Ive never really been a huge fan of flowers and Im not a fan at all of the big fancy arrangements. I love peonies (not available in Mexico) for their simple beauty. I kinda feel these have a simular feel, could also just be me trying to convince myself.

Not that anyone would actually do this BUT you can keep these flowers and use them at home or something Ive seen a fair bit is using them as a difuser. They are made out of a soft wood.

My other thought is faux peonies. These are all pics of Sola Flowers

    I think so too..

    These are all made by a professional florist tho so Im not so sure I could do this on my own.

    Im worried they may not take the traveling so well either being thin strips of wood. They are crazy affordable tho.. even cheaper than most silk flowers, so Im thinking it might be worth a try.

    You can also dye them .. not so sure I could but ive seen pics where it is done.

    And they are so affordable!!!!

    So far Ive only looked on one site saveoncrafts but using their prices just as an example 6 bouquets of 10 flowers each is only $30. I think Im worried its too good to be true.

    Of course then I have to make them pretty but really it cant be that hard.

    I think it could be an amazing option for brides on a budget (ie ME ) plus if your eco friendly or are not a huge fan of flowers then why not. I think Im sold on them.
