    I think that D would be the least expensive option because it looks the least labor intensive and while hydrangeas aren’t cheap, they’re big and you only need a few per centerpiece.  If you like one of the other centerpieces better, you may be able to get the price down by having the florist simplify a little and perhaps suggest some less expensive flowers.

    A (or the CONCEPT of a, with multiple forms of greenery and light floral accents) or D are your cheapest here.  If you are open to using white hydrangea (cheaper than the saturated colored hydrangeas) with purple stock, either purple roses or spray roses, carns and lisianthus…. that would be fairly inexpensive. B is your most costly- all phalaenopsis orchids. C not far behind- anemones and roses are costly (MINI GERBERS are a GREAT alternative to anemones btw)

    Incorporating greenery is a GREAT way to cut some cost! I would consider adding salal, pit, or seeded eucalyptus (even just euc seeds! some have a purplish cast, they are textural, and fill spaces well)

    I would say A considering all the greenery filler versus actual flowers.

    D is lovely and probably the potentially next cheapest but hydrangeas right now are going for $4-6 per stem so that can add up quickly depending on number of tables and fullness of the arrangements.

    D will be the cheapest because it’s mostly hydrangea and roses. The fewer flowers the cheaper, especially with big flowers. Hydrangea come in a blue/purple color but roses would need to be died or painted. You’re still probably looking at $100/table.

    Something to consider is that some florist consider some greenery to be flowers. For example, dusty miller, which is a greyish fuzzy leafy plant, looks like leaves and is often used as an accent like leaves. However, every florist I spoke to said it’s pricier than the average greenery and as such, it is still considered a flower. In other words, just because it’s green doesn’t mean it’ll be a huge savings (if at all).

    In addition, unless you are considering expensive flowers like orchids, it’s best to keep within the same color/variety. The reason is that your florist can get better pricing when it’s a huge order of one thing versus have little bunches of a ton of different flowers. For example, they have to order a certain quantity of each and as such, it will cost the same whether you needed one stem or a dozen stems (for example). That’s one reason why I would hesitate to pick an arrangement with too much variety if you are on a budget.
