    Hi, I have just recently discover your site and I thank God for the opportunity you’re providing individuals like me to be inspired and grow. I’ve always wanted how to attached flowers on pipe and drapes as backdrop/chuppah. How do you attach flowers to the “face” and the other sides? I thought about oasis cages,but I’m afraid they will not stay because the bars of the pipe is too thick. Do you have any suggestions please?

    Thank you,
    Nana
