I have been playing with the idea of ordering the bulk roses from Costco (100 stems for $89.99) and actually doing the bouquets myself. I watched and read some tutorials online and it seemed like something I could do if I do some practice runs first. I read the reviews on Costco's website and they were kind of mixed. Some said they were great and opened up beautifully, some say they were horrible and dead. I was wondering if any of you girls did the Costco flowers and if you would suggest it. Also, any tips for care when you receive them or when would be the best time to have them delivered? One review said that they have to be de-thorned when you get them. I don't know if I trust myself to de-thorn 100 roses, but maybe if I had a helper? I don't know...
Also, has anyone used them for their table petals? I would love to have fresh petals on the tables at least, if not for the aisle also (I'd rather not littler and have a thousand silk petals blowing around outside). If you've gotten fresh petals, what kind of care did you need to do when you received them?
