I am currently on a search for some new hair flowers. Unfortunately the search is not going too well. I live in the UK. There are a few places that I have got some previously, but the colour choices etc are limited. I don't want glitter, feathers etc. Just some realistic flowers.
Any ideas are much appreciated
Have you checked out Belle Blossoms or JenKaboom Designs?? Both are US-based, but both ship overseas (I think). Belle Blossoms also has a Blossom of the Month Club, where you get a new hair flower each month (like a wine of the month club) and both do beautiful & realistic looking flowers... BB also does snoods, vintage hair clips and other goodies. (This is where I purchased my snood from, for a great price, and love it - it doesn't lose it's stretch!)
Ok, here are the links (both are also on FB, which is where I found them, and they post their updates on there...):
Belle Blossoms: belleblossoms.com (She is going on vacation at the end of June, but will continue the BOM while on vacation; she's also on etsy)
JenKaboom Designs: JenKaboom Designs (it looks like they are re-vamping their actual website, because it keeps kicking me back to her FB page; also, she's here on PUGStyle!!)
Finally, I know there are a ton of girls on here that do hair flowers/clips/etc, like Brandy Shuey, and they may be able to make a custom order of exactly what it is you're looking for.
Hope these help!
I'm a fan of Vintage Box 1947 and recently ordered their Retro Package which I love. Very high quality stuff. They're based in the US but they ship with the cheapest option available (USPS Int. First Class) so shouldn't be too expensive - it cost me $7 to ship to Australia with $65 worth of product in there.
(also, looks like they currently have a discount code! welcome15 for 15% off)
Not sure if anything I make is what you are looking for,but I do custom requests as well.I can make hair flowers out of almost any fabric. I'll try to save you as much as I can with shipping,too. :)
oooohhhh, the tropical affairs, sigh. the "where's waldo?" search begins... Diablo Jo does some (she's on fb & etsy - i think), and I do believe she is on your side of the pond, which should help with shipping. PUG (of course) has started with the fascinator/flower selling... I wish you luck; most of the flowers in the tropical variety (especially orchids, my absolute fave flower ever!) come off not looking real, but looking definitely plastic. I have actually been looking around crafty places and such to see if I could find some to make my own. Do tell if you find a place that is awesome!!
Hey - there's a seller on Amazon called Fabulous Fascinators. I came across them the other day looking for hair flowers (specifically orchids!) and they came up with a number of options. I can't attest how they look in RL, as I haven't gotten around to buying any yet, but they look pretty realistic on line.
