Is anyone having Real petals/dried petals/freeze dried petals etc etc?? I want to get some as i dont like the paper stuff and not sure whether church allows it anyway...i would really like ivory dried petals and maybe some colours in there - not fussed about colour really apart from dont really want red or pink lol (so she IS fussed, i hear you smirk lol!)
Have looked on Ebay and there is loads on there but the prices range dramatically! 8grams for £5 or 120grams for £4.50 ....what should i be looking for lol?!!? help! :confused:
Baldrick, does it have to be this way? Our valued friendship ending with me cutting you up into strips and telling the prince that you walked over a very sharp cattle grid in an extremely heavy hat?

    How about getting the flowers and drying the petals yourself?

    You will need to pick the flowers apart, and lay them in trays of borax which will help dessicate them whilst preserving the colours. Small individual flowers such as violets and forsythia would be suitable, also jasmine, as well as rose petals. Cover with more borax and keep in a dry place, checking weekly. Once dried, store in airtight jars. Ensure they are completely dry before storing or they could go mouldy.

    Cheers, HG
