What Your Special Event Flowers Can Cost

January 08, 2018

When you're putting your event decor plan together, unless it's incredibly sparse or avant-garde, at least some of your event decor is going to include flowers.

Here is a breakdown of the most popular floral decor items with average starting prices.

Note that luxury-name florists will charge much more than these price guide estimates - and you'll need to book them as soon as you've paid and secured your venue space.

Why?

Because if they're good and/or popular florists, they can usually only handle floristry arrangements and time-consuming installations for up to two special events per day maximum, up to three events if they're a particularly large floral company. 

  • Gazebo flower arrangements - from $75
  • Flowers for an arch or arbour - from $150
  • Real garlands - from $50 per metre
  • Faux rose garland hire - from $2.50 per metre
  • Venue entrance flowers on pedestals - from $100 each
  • VIP table garland - from $200
  • Centrepiece and vase hire - from $10 each
  • Faux floral wall hire (excluding delivery & installation) - from $450
  • Foliage wall hire (excluding delivery & installation) - from $450
  • Floral chandeliers - from $1,000
  • Succulents as guest favours - from $10 each
  • Olive sapling bomboniere - from $5 each

Why are autumn events such a good seasonal event option?

Autumn celebrations offer warm days and crisp evenings and seem especially made for rustic affairs in barns, vineyards, orchards and farms with the bounty of harvest time.
