Tips:

Flowers can be a very expensive part of the décor. Here are some tips for keeping the costs down:

Concentrate on in-season flowers or locally grown flowers.

Use cut flowers rather than arranged ones – arrangements take time to put together and you will therefore need to spend money on labour.

Focus on one colour as fewer flowers in different shades of the same colour can still look abundant in an arrangement. Include ‘greenery’ and ribbons as fillers in centrepieces and bouquets

Rent containers from a florist rather than buy expensive vases for each table. Fruit is also becoming an alternative to flowers in centrepieces.
