Centerpiece pricing

I'm debating on whether or not to go with the vender package at the Executive Court. I'm just stuck on how much on average I'm looking at spending for centerpieces per table...I know it ranges on size and height, so I guess I'm looking for ruff estimates and if you have the tall or short ones. Thanks!

    I DIY'd all of mine, using candles and lanterns...I spent less than $15 apiece.....which is FAR less than a florist will charge you.

    I'm doing the package at the Executive Court -- I am using PJ's Flowers in Bedford thru the package and Patrick was wonderful! We set up a meeting to get all the ideas and info then set up another meeting 2 weeks later and he had examples of the centerpieces and bouquets to see. It was great!!! I am using orchids and calalillies which are not cheap flowers and he kept our centerpieces within budget of the package without charging us anything extra. He is also using our head table centerpieces to hang on the gazebo for the ceremony - most florists would love to charge you extra for something like that!  I work with 2 people planning weddings now too and their  flowers were a lot more - and one of them has a family member who owns a floral shop. My total for flowers is under $700 for my bouquest, a toss bouuquet, 4 b.m. bouquets, 6 pin orchid coursages, 9 calalily bout. I thought that was pretty good. Plus no delivery or set up fee because it is in the package!

    I am using Lyndsey Loring and my centerpieces are $29 each and they are short.

    I looked at the executive court and their packages before I booked my venue.  The package was not worth it.  I would have saved around $6,000+ by booking what I wanted on my own.

    We're using a florist in Jaffery, (Daffodills).  The owner suggested that to keep our costs down, that we purchase our own vases and rocks, (we wanted those in the arrangement).

    Michaels had a sale a few months ago--$1.99 for all glass vases, so we bought a couple of cases of the 8" bubble bowls.  Also bought about a dozen bags of small polished river rocks.  The florist is storing all of this for us--thank goodness!

    By doing this, we were able to keep the cost of our floral centerpieces down to around $30-ish each.  We're also using very seasonal inexpensive flowers--sunflowers, daisies, willow branches, blue delphennium, and ferns.  This is a mock-up--so it is similar, but not exactly, what we'll have.  (The sunflowers will have dark centers and the daisies will be a bit larger--different fern).  It's hard to tell from these pics, but there are river rocks and moss with a little water inside of the bubble bowls.

    I am doing three types of centerpieces.  Each has some kind of combination of orchids (purple, fuscia, and green).  One type will be a bowl with floating candles and orchids.  Another will be three vases of different heights with suspended orchids.  A third will be  a larger vase with the orchids.  Mine are running around $40.  I have the option of buying my own vases if i find them cheaper than what she quoted which was around $15 a centerpiece.

    We had short, square vases filled with hydrangea, roses, and ribbon grass (in the centerpiece and inside the vase to cover the stems). They were $40 each through creative gardens in lee, NH.
