Detailed Breakdown

Bridal Bouquet


  • 10-15 stems filler/volume flowers
  • 7-10 stems accent flowers
  • 1/3-1/2 bunch texture flowers
  • 1/2 bunch greenery total

Bridesmaid Bouquet


  • 5-7 stems filler/volume flowers
  • 3-5 stems accent flowers
  • 1/4 bunch texture flowers
  • 1/4 bunch greenery total (per bridesmaid bouquet)

Bouts & Corsages


These take minimal flower volume & typically involves several sprigs of leftover greens & 1-3 buds

(Save any broken stems for these!)

Centerpieces:

5-6" diameter vase


  • 5-7 stems of filler/volume flowers
  • 3-5 stems of accent flowers (optional and as budget allows)
  • ¼ texture flowers
  • ⅓-¼ bunch of greenery total per centerpiece

Centerpieces:

3" diameter/mason jar size


  • 2-3 stems of filler/volume flowers
  • 1-2 stems of accent flowers
  • 1/6 bunch of texture flowers
  • 1/6 bunch of greenery total per mason-jar sized vase

Bud Vases


Each one will be different so it’s best to average 1-2 sprigs of greens & 1-3 flower buds. We average 1 bunch of greenery for every 15 bud vases.

Example: 60 bud vases = 3-4 bunches of greenery & approx. 120 stems of flowers.

Suggested Recipe: 50 roses, 25 carnations, 1 bunch of lisianthus, 2 bunches of button poms, 1 bunch of ranunculus, give or take.

Loose Greens

Flowers on 6-8 foot rectangular tables


  • 1-2 bunches of silver dollar, nagi, italian ruscus, or another similar green.
  • Average 5-10 stems of filler flowers per table; carnations, roses, mums, & snapdragons work best!
  • Accent flowers tend to be too delicate.
  • 1/2 - 1 bunch of texture flowers are nice!
