LET’S TALK ABOUT PRICING – What would you charge for this compote styled centerpiece?

It’s been awhile since we’ve featured a pricing post here on Flirty Fleurs. Always a great project and a series we should probably reinstate as it is a great way to see how pricing differs by region and availability of various flowers and foliages.
So how it works. I send out a photograph of an arrangement in the Flirty Fleurs Newsletter. (sign up HERE if you do not already receive our newsletter). Along with the photograph I include a list of ingredients – hard goods, fresh flowers, fresh foliages and anything else that will set the price. Readers of the newsletter reply with the price they would charge, any notes about substitutions and the location of their business. I add all these details onto the blog post. It’s always fascinating to read what people would charge! Feel free to share your price and notes in the comments section at the bottom of the post!

I would substitute trailing ivy for the Akebia Vine and Lisianthus or cosmos (depending on season) for the Nasturium.
$350

Cincinnati, Ohio
Janet Martineau – Floral Verde
I don’t have access to akebia or nasturtiums – I would probably have to sub sweet autumn clematis or jasmine vine. And those cute baby dahlias – my grower only has one or two at a time.
$350-365

I am so thrilled to have feedback that is spread out across the country – so interesting to see how the pricing can range by region. Thank you to all who replied with feedback! Please sign up for the newsletter to be part of a future pricing post.
