Michael's is a national chain I think (it's here in VA) so no worries on that front. =]
As for the safety of the plants like KP said you don't want any of the obvious things like glitter and fake rain and stuff.
Soaking helps too.
Another great way to make sure is to boil your leaves first. I got some fake flowers from Dollar Tree back in summer that I thought I'd use for my boys (I'm not going to anymore though. Too random in a natural tank! :'D) and I boiled them twice then soaked them for days to make sure that they wouldn't leech dyes and were safe. =] No dye leeched so I was good. =]
Hope this helps some. =]
