favor :: i need help

Okay, I have a question and hoping you all can help me.  I have an upcoming party that needs flowers - like LOTS and LOTS of flowers.  Fake flowers.  Where can I get fake flowers for cheap?  Anyone have any ideas?

I was hoping to find bags of them for sale on Ebay or something, but have come up empty handed so far.  I have hit up a few sales at Michael's where I bought several stems at a dollar a piece, but I need hundreds and that translates to hundreds of dollars - not in my budget.

I am going to start weekly visits to my local goodwill/dollar stores and I'm planning on making some by hand with tissue and napkins, but I just thought maybe someone might have another resource I haven't thought of.  Any help is much appreciated!!!

The Dollar Tree, you can also try FreeCycle.

Yes, the Dollar Tree may be your best bet, if you go online, they sell them in bulk. http://www.dollartree.com/floral-decor/floral-arranging/202c204c204/index.cat

Just read this on my blog feed. I have made them before and it's easy.

I did a fairy party that needed more flowers than the budget allowed. I made them out of paper plates. You can see them here http://www.gumdropsandtruffles.com/?p=77

If you have a Flower Factory or Old Time Pottery, they have loads of flowers for cheap! I haven't been to a Garden Ridge in a while, but that used to be a good resource.
Good luck!
