I’m considering ordering flowers from Sams (was going to do dried orchid manzanita trees but decided I didn’t like the dried orchids), and am now wondering about how many flowers would make a decent centerpiece? I know this can vary a ton, but any ideas as to whether we’re talking like 24 stems or like 50 stems?
I haven’t picked flowers yet but am looking at the following
I don’t want something so huge as to prevent people from seeing across the table (will be going in 6.5″ square (cube) copper pots), but I don’t want to look like I skimped either. Any advice appreciated!

There is soooo much variety- we aren’t having any flowers in our centerpieces 🙂
Could you post a picture of what you have in mind? There are so many different ways you can go with floral centerpieces.

we didnt have flowers as centerpieces either- i used candelabras….but i did order roses from sams for my bouquets. i think it was 25 roses…maybe that can give you a picture of how big it is.. hope it helps!
you can see it laying flat on the table in this picture
i think we did 15 for Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets here is a pic of that – better pic since my sis is holding it up (those were square tables in our holding room during cocktail hour)

Ok, my *guess* would be that you could get by with 25-35 stems, especially if you add some greenery. If you want a fuller look though you’d need more.
