Help! What are you spending on flowers/decor?

Hey everyone!  I just received a floral quote that blew my mind a bit.  I was quoted $250 for large carnation ball centerpieces on candlesticks and six small votive candles.  I did not expect it to be this much esp since it's carnations.  Can anyone provide insight here?!  Thank you!!!

    How many carnation balls are you ordering?  Is that cost per table or total?

    Is it too late to change florists? Or have you talked to your florist about it? When I met with my florist I just had to tell her if something was outside of what I was expecting to spend, and she would throw alternatives at me until we settled on a do-able budget... I
