Hey fellow Bees
I am currently (because I am a bit fickle) obsessed with the manzanita branches, roses and orchards with hanging crystals for my reception centerpieces. Can anyone give me an approximate cost? By the way I live in the NY metro area. Pics are included.

These are our centerpieces that are a close version of what you are talking about. I think we had the curly willow branches though but the hanging balls of roses, crystals and votives were there. There was 5 balls of 50 roses for these (so 250 roses per centerpiece total) and they cost $300 per centerpiece.

I’m going to assume from the pictures you posted and the area you live in they would be about $500 a piece.

Although I haven’t done this, I would believe that even if you DIY this, the cheapest you probably do this for would be $75 – $100. And that would be some serious deal hunting. This is the potential breakdown:
Manzanita branch = $40 – $50
SILK flower Pomander balls = $5 – $8
Mounting base = $10
Hanging crystals = $10
All of these costs are approximate, but how much can you afford?

well mine aren’t as elaborate as the pics you posted, but I DIY’d mine and they came out to a little over $40 each. I’m sure you could go the same route, dress it up more to your liking and it’ll be less expensive (unless the costs aren’t an issue for you)

Wow! You guys are great, I didn’t expect such quick replies. This is my first day here too! I have budgeted abt $175 for each centerpiece so I am hoping to get them done around that figure. Maybe $200, but I can’t tell my FH 🙂
I am being impratical? They don’t have to be AS elaborate as the pics….
