ha! i just spent more time looking at your wedding photos. i'm a big fan of those bridesmaids Wink they just look like so much fun!

and funny you should mention it, my little sister just got engaged and has asked me to make these as centerpieces for the wedding. i'm actually going to wire up a mini one in the colors she's chosen as an engagement gift. vee - if you're reading this, act surprised (i think she's created an account to help with the crafty, diy wedding ideas).

as for featuring them, please do! they've actually been in a bunch of blogs, but no one has asked me first, so that's very sweet. (not like i mind, i mean, i posted this on the internets because i want other people to see them/make them!) post a link here if you remember to so i can take a look.

Wow so beautiful. After looking around here for silk cherry blossoms I ordered from saveoncrafts these http://www.save-on-crafts.com/peacblosspra.html. These branches provide about 50 blossoms each. I bought 3 and 1 or 2 would be enough. I did just order another 30 bulbs so I can convert 50-60 blossoms. Note they also have a branch of 3 silk butterflies!

As a bonus the branches/blossoms can be disassembled and the lead on the bulb inserted from the top AND reassembled using the pale green leaf/bud blades. When done you have a blossom with the bulb inside the stamens of the blossom. The down side is you have to cut and rejoin the leads of the bulb to the battery pack. That is actually good as they are easier to attach and wrap around the branches AND you can get a 3 to 5 volt DC power supply to power all bulbs with no batteries. 60 bulbs will need 2.5 to 3 amps minimum at 5 volts. Thanx for such a beautiful project for this winter.
