My paper flower bouquets had around 20 flowers each.  That might kinda help?  They were around the same size as real flowers.

Here is how big my bridal one turned out:

It is hard to say w/o knowing what kind of flowers you want to use.

The best way to determine this is for you to do a trial run with the specific flowers that you want to use. For example, I thought that 8 or so flowers would be good enough for my centerpeices & thank goodness I did a trial run, beucase I ended up needed double that to achieve the look I wanted!

@MeganB1008:  When I was talking to one florist about pricing, she mentioned that for round bouquets you generally need odd numbers of flowers rather than even dozens or half-dozens. It depends on the size of the bouquet you want, but she said that you would use 13 roses rather than 12 to do a “dozen” roses bouquet, and 23 or 25 roses would make a nicer bouquet arrangement than 24.

Definitely do a trial run – maybe even go to a craft store and surrepetitiously experiment with some silk flowers.
