Centerpiece Flower - HELP
Posted 22 March 2007 - 05:13 PM
I have purchased these vases from IKEA and took them down to Cabo already. I am trying to order flowers for these to put on the long reception table. I have 6 total vases and they are 14" tall and few inces in diam. I want to be sure that the flowers are nice and tall and the MUST BE Fushia in color.
The email I got from the Flower Cart said this:
"Option 1: fushia alstromeria tall 10 to 12 stems per vase, if you purchase the alstromeria by the bunch and put it in the vases yourself it's $10 a bunch with 10 stems per bunch.
Option 2: Stargazer lilies $40 a bunch with 10 stems per bunch and 2 to 3 flowers per stem, $40 per bunch
Or you can combine the lilies and the alstromeria together in your vases, both have long stems."
SOOOO my question is how may bunches do you think I should order and do you think I should go with both flowers or only one vs. another?

The lillies are large and dramatic - I'm sure they would look great. I would also probably fill in with some greenery. We used Israeli Ruscus (just do a google image or look at my photos) and Tea Leaves. They are cheapo.
Alstromeria kinda look like mini-lillies, but they are not big and bright and dramatic. We used them for boutennieres only.
Have you considered gerbera daisies too? I think Christa used them last weekend, and Natasha too.

SOOO... 6 vases and 2 or 3 stems per vase= 12 or 18 stems so... just to be safe I would order 2 bunches. That would give you 20 stems to work with.
Also make sure you ask if all 2 or 3 flowers in each stem will be fully open as this will make a difference.

Personally, I wouldn't do alstromeria, they're a smaller flower and to me almost seem really fragile.
I think the lilies will look beautiful! You can't go wrong with lilies!
