So last week I made that gorgeous lilac and wax flower centerpiece, that ended in failure, though no fault of my own. I went to another wholesale flower place today in Mission Viejo. After a helpful conversation with the owner, and taking into consideration another gals suggestion of keeping them lower for conversations- I ordered 60 huge white hydrangea. 10 per centerpiece box, and I have 6 wine boxes. He charged me $2.50 per stem. Here is my inspiration.
I also ordered 2 huge bunches of white stock, 2 huge bunches of white/ pink alstromeria, 25 large white roses and 2 large bunches of pink spray roses, all for 4 bouquets and 4 boutonnieres which I will also be making myself. I did the trial run a while back and posted. It was so easy.
Grand total for everything I ordered: $230
Hope I have inspired you girls to try and DIY some flowers. It’s not that hard at all, and easy on the wallet. If I can do it- any of you can, you just have to try.
