I did a trial of an all-rose garland using flowers from Whole Foods today and it looked pretty good! I found that the flowers tend to break if you stick the needle in the green base of the flower first and then pull through the bloom. It was better for me to stick the needle through the bloom and pull through the green base (which I know has some proper name, but I have no clue what it is). I'll need to figure out exactly how many roses I'll use, divide that number in half and do half facing one way and half the other way if we end up doing our own. But overall the test garland looked really good and much prettier and more traditional than the ones I could get from my florist. Plus, at less than $10 a dozen, they're way cheaper.
