Wedding Flowers

I'm doing an experiment to see how, many carnation stems it takes to make a full pretty bunch and how long it will stay fresh. I have 18 stems and I split them between 4 jars. I'm getting the flowers delivered 3 days before the wedding so they have time to open and it gives me a small window just in case anything goes wrong. That's the same time frame I used for my wedding and I had enough time to do everything. The hydrangeas I experimented with last week lasted over a week before they started wilting. My plan is to order 20 hydrangea stems and 200 carnation stems. The ceremony flowers are going to be tulips and I'm getting 100 stems of those. They'll be used in the bouquets, boutonnieres, and for the flower girl. The bride didn't want wedding favors, but I'll invite the guests to take a flower jar home if they want to. I still need about 80 jars. I wonder if I can convince anybody to go dumpster diving with me

I'm off work this week so I'll be doing a lot of party and wedding work. I can't believe Judah is turning 1 this week!

Ikea may have some affordable jars.
