The Pricing Series: Centerpieces!

Hey loves!

We hope you’re week is going so well! We are back with our next post about pricing, this time focusing on centerpieces. Centerpieces can easily become the biggest investment when it comes to your budget because there are so many of them. And for the most part, follow the same pattern as bouquets.

If you need a refresher, head over to our first pricing blog here- all about bouquets. Here we go into detail about what factors affect pricing the most and why hiring a florist is such a big investment. To recap here are our top three reason:

  1. The flowers used, where you live and seasonality

  2. The cost of owning a floral business

  3. The skill, popularity, experience and location of the florist themselves

We go into more detail in our first post as well!

To start, we LOVE centerpieces! They add so much to a reception space and even if you have to scale back on some elements of the design because of budget, they make such a big difference in the feel of your reception. Here are some different options and price points that you can keep in mind as you’re planning your floral budget.

As always keep in mind these prices are an average and change depending on your region, who you love, season and style. They also don’t include things like compreshensive design, delivery, set up and clean up!


  1. $45- This super simple centerpiece option includes 3 pillar candles, hurricane vase and greenery tucks. There is also the option of adding in floral tucks around the candles as well for a bit more. We usually suggest this in conjunction with another, more expensive option to cut down on overall cost, add depth to the tablescapes and not take away from the vibe! You could also provide the candles yourself and save even more.

2. $10-$20 each- Another good option for cutting down while still making an impact are bud vases! These are especially good for longer tables. They pair well with other things down the table like candles/lanterns and if you are doing family style. Each of these tables had 5 bud vases and were $10 each (with a bloom and small amount of greenery) so $50/table.

3. $20- Here is an example of a $60 bud vase cluster with more floral and no greenery elements.

4. $80- This small centerpiece is mostly greenery with just a few pops of floral.

5. $95- These centerpieces are still small, but they have more floral than greenery. The flowers are still more standard than garden roses or more specialty flowers- we would classify them as middle of the road flowers.

5. $130- These centerpieces are more of a medium size and also have some more specialty flowers in them like sweet pea, nicer roses and imported ranunuclus.

6. $12/foot. This is more of a handlaid garland with pops of floral throughout. You can also leave out the flowers and just do greenery for a less expensive option.
