For DD to wear in her hair for a dance comp

Ideally single flowers 1.5cm-2cm across white maybe camellia or magnolia possibly with glossy green leaves?

ebay have loads

Katymac Fri 25-Sep-09 20:02:35

Hmm I am quite short of time - But I'll have a look, thanks

Dunelm and Hobbycraft have them - not sure of prices though.

saadia Fri 25-Sep-09 20:05:20

I mean they have flowers - not sure if they have the ones you are looking for though.

a lot of the private companies on ebay do next day delivery...

If you have time to order then VV Rouleaux are great. If you live in London then you could visit one of the shops. Alternatively, John Lewis and dept stores with haberdashery sections might do.

OK I am struggling to keep up - ebay alone is immense

I am looking at everything everyone has suggested.

I will tell you what DD & I pick

Oh dear I am not doing well - I can't see what I want in flowers so I looked at crystal/diamonte (not pearl as it's not a wedding) & they are all very predictable/naff

What a shame

Thanks for everyone's help but I still haven't found what I am looking for

Does anyone have any other suggestions

I can probably make the leaves actually - so it's some halfway decent flowers I need

I will have a look

Pictures of DD are now on my profile......which looks best?

katy - make some yourself perhaps? i made these at end of post really fast and easy to do. HTH.

A lot of larger garden centres now stock ranges of artificial flowers. Might be worth a visit if you've got one locally.

Katymac Sun 27-Sep-09 06:56:03

Good idea about the garden centre

VintageViolet I have been looking for you for days - I need some button help.....pretty please?

Katymac Sun 27-Sep-09 06:59:58

VV - that is it - I want them just like the grey one but in pure white with diamonds/crystals in the centre............but it's way to difficult for me, I'll keep looking

vInTaGeVioLeT Sun 27-Sep-09 21:41:28

when do you need them by Katy? I can make you some if you like? I don't have the supplies but they are easy to get hold of. Let me know.

pointydoug Sun 27-Sep-09 21:50:39

I like ikea's fake flowers

Katymac Sun 27-Sep-09 21:58:33

Really VV? I'd need about 5 pure white ones with a non pearl centre, something glitzy? on a kirby grip

But I really could do with them by Saturday (but if you can't I understand & I can use them at the end of November too)

Did I send you a chq last time or was it paypal or something?

I would possibly love you forever...grin
