Im looking for bulk orders of flowers so I can DIY my center pieces and bouquet.
I came across 100 Tulips for $82.46, Free shipping through SAMS’ CLUB.
I find this deal too good to be true, has anyone here dealt w Sams Club?
Am I gonna get get the flowers I see?
I tried reading the fine print but as a Jaded NYer its hard for me to believe it!
The link is below to anyone thats interested in the deal as well.

I think you can trust it. Sam’s is a reputable company and often has some pretty great deals. Go for it! 🙂

one thing i’d be cautious of- tulips droop quite a bit, so they are a difficult DIY flower. just don’t want you to be surprised day of!

Hey there! For a wedding I’m in, we got some flowers from Sam’s to do a trial because we were going to make the bouquets and centerpieces (she’s now decided to just have a florist do it since it’s an out of town wedding). Anyways! The flowers were great! Another one of my friends also got all our bouquets from Costco and they turned out wonderful. They were just plain red roses but honestly, it was my favorite bouquet of all the weddings I’ve been in.
So I would say no, not too good to be true. I plan to use them for my wedding if I ever get married because I want lots of flowers and they’re so cheap!

Agreed – flowers from there are totally fine, but tulips to tend to bend over easily and early on.

That looks to be about right. As far as getting what you see,
To assure optimum freshness, different varieties may be substituted based on availability. In making substitutions, we take great care to ensure that we exceed your expectations, and that you will be satisfied with the flower quality and performance.
But this just means that they might sub a different variety of white tulip. They will still be white, and no one will know the difference.
As far as the tulips drooping, try putting a penny or 2 in the water with them and this should retard the droopage a bit. Also, the tighter they are arranged, the less they will blow open.
Hope that helps! Good luck!

I only heard good things about sam’s club (but never used it personall). I was just going to say the same thing as @thewheelsonthebus:. Tulips aren’t very “sturdy” flowers. My cousin had tulips (from a pro florist) and the petals were falling off before supper. Personally, I think that might be a stressful flower to DYI.
