Hi ladies so here is a DIY project that I've been working on today. I went on Dollar Tree website...
This past weekend we went to Hobby Lobby after several people told me that it was A MUST when planning my wedding. So after the issues with the flowers I decided to take a trek over to the other side of town (I was already there for a birthday party) and see just all the hoopla was over Hobby Lobby.
Well it was a HUGE disappointment. Needless to say that after we left we walked down 3 stores to Dollar Tree and found the flowers I needed for what it would have cost to purchase 2 stems from Hobby Lobby.
Dont get me wrong, the selection was nice, the stems and florals where incredibly realistic, but $9.99 for (1) rose stem seems a bit unrealistic to me. Especially when I will be using an excess of 400-500 of them for my wedding. Not to mention all the other floral décor that will be needed.
We did look at home décor selection and the crafts too. It was all very high quality and priced comparably, but I noticed that the floral & wedding department was a bit overpriced compared to other craft stores and rental places.
Now Im a self-admitted bargain shopping who hates to pay retail for anything. But even my nemesis Michaels fares better when it comes to price points.
So I think Ill keep Hobby Lobby in my back pocket for when I want to search for a few key pieces for interior decorating. Not a huge production like a wedding. For what they were charging I could have all real flowers at the wedding :(
Has anyone had success with Hobby Lobby?
