I’ve been wondering the same thing as I am DIY-ing my own centerpieces, commenting to keep track of this post! Can’t wait to see what other bees say.

Ours were HUGE… Just the vases were 2′ tall. I want to say there were 2 dozen stems in each centerpiece?

I’ve been wondering the same thing and wondering whether or not to go with real flowers or silk. I can say that I’ve been practicing when I go to the craft store. I use a quart sized mason jar and fill it with flowers (mostly peonies) and it takes 8 or 9 to get a full look. However, I don’t know if the size is the same as what a real peony would be.

I think it depends on the look you are going (if you want it tightly packed or the flowers a bit more “relaxed”) for and the blooms you are using. I will be including greenery in mine to bulk it out. I had a look through your old posts and saw you were looking at ranunculus. I was just looking at this page and thought it was so pretty and uses them in a lot of their arrangements it is pretty heavy in pictures.
