I am in love with wooden roses and have a billion of them in my basement (okay...not a billion...but probably 1,000!) and plan to order more since I don't have enough in my wedding colors of (black with) pink & orange accents. So...I was looking up ideas online and playing with different things and I am really liking this:


It's whimsical yet classy and won't be very expensive. My Fiance also likes it so that's a big plus too. :-) The lighting kind of distorts the colors, this one was made with hot pink and lime green roses. I'll be using hot pink and bold orange roses, and I'm thinking maybe a iridescent or silver onion grass...or maybe just leave that green. We'll have black table clothes so the colors will really pop. I just hope it won't be too tiny on the big tables. This piece has 4 dozen roses!

Wow, these are really cute.  I have never heard of wooden roses before.  Did you have a "billion" prior to getting engaged?  Why?  Just b/c you like them?  I am always looking for flower alternatives.  I ususally rely on old faithful--origami flower bouquets.  Where can you order them?  Do you paint them or do they come pre-painted?  I really like these, and I think those colors wil really pop at the reception--4 dozen yowza!!!(sp?)  Plus, you can always use fillers like mirrors and candles/lighting, placecards, etc. if you think you will need more filler on the tables--but I doubt it.  Congrats by the way.

Thanks!

I have so many roses because I engrave things on them and sell them for fundraisers, holidays, etc. I have a small business that continues to shrink as my life gets busier and busier! (I got engaged and started my MBA in the same month - yikes!)


Example of roses I did for a breast cancer fundraising event.

I get my roses wholesale at www.woodenrosecompany.com. They sell by the case of 800 roses at a good price, which is why I have so many! You can also add fragrance oils to them to make them scented. I love them so much, I've got them all over the house and give them to friends and family as gifts. They're so much fun!

If you happen to order roses, talk to Karen and tell her Laura from Etched In Time Engraving sent you. :-)

okay, thanx. I looked on the site but I didn't see a price list, nor did I see 800 only 1600.  I guess they do half orders?  I would only need like 120 to start.  You are a busy busy lady Smiley

I think 800 (one full case) is the bare minimum they sell, another reason why I have so many! What would you make with them?

it is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves, monotonous and un-renewed, it is shyness before all else.
