A new flower shop opened up in my small town, so I stopped in to see what kind of centerpeices they could offer me for my tiny $300 budget for 15 centerpeices…I know, it’s a tiny budget, BUT SHE AGREED TO DO IT AT COST!!
This is what we came up with….
The cost for the flowers is $15 a centerpiece!!! I KNOW!! It includes A hydrangia, 2 dahlias, three green carnations, one stem(6 or so) light green button mums and some greenery.
This has a green rose but I am replacing it with a green carnation and we are going to put 2 more on the other side.
I made the vase out of a cylindrical vase from Dollarama, a candle stick from Dollar Tree and some E6000 epoxy glue LOVE how it turned out total cost: Approx. $3.50

So total cost is…
$18.50 per centerpiece for REAL FLOWERS!!!
I already had the vases and candel sticks, I have made one so far…only 14 more to make, but it’s easy I just need a few free hours on a Saturday.
Flowers come in under budget so I demanded she charge me the $300 so she could at least get paid a little, finding a deal is great but not at the expense of others
so total costs for me on my centerpeices is less than $375!!!( I need a few more vases for the girls and my bouquets)
I was so happy last week after the flower meeting, if I can figure out how to get my better images off my phone I’ll post them.
Finding places to save is important but it is also important to get the things you want but not at the expense of your financial stability…The lesson here is that it NEVER hurts to ask!
