Floral pedestals

I need help! Just when I've finally figured out my centerpieces it all falls apart. We are doing tall centerpieces with a sphere of flowers on top. We found a great stand (actually a three feet tall candle holder) from Hobby Lobby and we did a test run. Absolutely perfect!!! Even my future hubby agreed.But, just our luck, Hobby Lobby will not let us order 20 of them--they have a weird policy where certain items are unorderable. (if any of you have had run-ins with the Hobby Lobby folks...you know the pain I going through!) Now, I am having visions of grandeur but no stands. My prototype is just sitting beautifully on my kitchen table with no hopes of being replicated. If anyone has any advice on where I can go to get about 20 candle holders/plant stands that are skinny enough and approximately 3ft high, please let me know. The original stand was $15 dollars and I'd really like to stay in that range or less. PLEASE HELP!!

    Can you buy a few at a time at a few different Hobby Lobbys? the centerpiece from our wedding has a stand too. I got them at Michael's. But over the past two months, I have been buying 2 at a time at different stores from around the area. I have only been to HL once, so I have no idea what their ordering policy is. You could always make field trips to the diffent HL in the area and see how many you can get....Good luck!

    Thanks for all of the advice! I did send my little elves to 5 different Hobby Lobbys to buy them out. So, my great centerpieces are back on, all 25 of them. v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);} Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-qformat:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-fareast; mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;}
