Since you are on a budget have you considered buying from a local grower? I spending @$300 and filling all my vases of which these are roughly half:

I will also be getting my bouquet from her.

These are a sample of the quality of flowers. (I apologize for the fact I personally cannot arrange flowers.}

This one has wildflowers in ruset red, gold and teraa cotta along with grasses.

You could substitute bronze mums for the wildflowers and still use the grasses with ivy or Dusty Miller.


I have never had ordinary daisies wired for a centerpiece. Perhaps you are thinking of gerbera daisies? An easy way to keep the stems upright is to slip them inside a drinking straw. This one has gerberas and mums.

More mums/daisies


carnations and goldenrod

wheat, dried grass and dried statice

 combined with lavender larkspur, mini sunflowers, lavender mardi gras asters as filler, purple veronica, and green hypericum berries.


daisies, crespidia and ?

Lots of flowers go with sunflowers! We used sunflowers as our main flower and got everything from fiftyflowers.com. I will post pics when I get home from work, but I wanted to tag this so I remember!

Mums come to mind. Or hyacinth, or just babys breath and some greenery. And baby daisys would not need to be wired I don’t think.

Not sure how casual you’re looking for it to be, but when I have done sunflowers in my house I’ve used marigolds and fall leaves.
