Just a little word of advice (you didn't hear it from this florist
), but just about EVERYTHING in a flower shop is marked up between 50-90% as far as the final sale prices go. You'd be surprised just how cheap we can get Star of Bethleham, Roses, Lilies, anything like that.....we get them really cheap and mark them up a lot (to make a profit, otherwise we wouldn't make a thing
) / If you'd rather not use a florist, Martha Stewart has a TON of creative ideas on her website www.marthastewart.com
. I definitely recommend it. She pretty much revolutionized the floral design industry along with Frankie Shelton a while back- those two ladies made the design industry what it is today. So if you can get ideas and tips from her site for free and do it on your on, i say go for it
