The Holy grail of centerpieces....

In a fit of Martha Stewartness I designed the perfect centerpieces for the wedding!
8 inch glass bowls filled with mini apples and an ivory candle. Simple, elegant, and affordable. I began my quest for the apples and was able to find small mesh bags with 6 miniature apples in them at Joann's! YAY!!! Double YAY - they were $2.99 and on clearance for 90% off!!!! The problem? I bought every bag they had in the area and I still need more!!! This is where all of you in blogland come into play.....
If you have a Joann's near you and pan on going there soon could you PLEASE look for these???? They are part of the Garden Gate collection and will be with the store clearance merchandise. I don't have them with me to give you the actual SKU (sorry), but they are plastic mesh bags with small (about an inch or so) plastic apples. I am looking for the red apples. There are also pears - the blush pears would work for this project as well.
If anyone can help me out at all I would so GREATLY appreciate it!!!
If you find them email me and I will give you my address and we can work out payment arrangements!
THANKS!

We have a Joanne's. I'm not sure they have any of those apples, but I'd be glad to check for you. I'll report back...do you still need them?

I'll keep a lookout too.

Thanks everyone!
I still need them - as many as I can get - we have 200 guests so that is over 20 tables!!!
I heart blogland :)

Andrea, I checked two of the local Joanne's and both of them were out! Sorry!1 I hope some others have better luck.

Andrea- very sorry! I went to two JoAnns and called two others and no one had any!! Let me know if I can look somewhere else for you. Did you check JoAnns online? What about Hobby Lobby or Michael's??
Good luck!!

OH NO!
Kate, Thanks for putting so much effort into it :)
I have checekd elsewhere with no luck and they don't have them on line either.
I may have enough if I put some glass stones in the bottom of the bowl first!
