My wife has to do cupcakes for a wedding. The customer wants 5 different flowers on each cupcake and over 700 flowers in all. Where can we get some good deals on flowers to buy this many?

You could try Caljava but I'm not sure what kind of deal you would get..I sure hope your wife is charging and arm and a leg for 700 flowers..I know I would be...LOL

ebay had some great bargains in the past, that's a lot of flowers for one cupcake even for simple ones. Let us know what she does in the end. Those will be quite expensive cupcakes

Leah_S is always recommending a place she buys from. Here's the thread. She says pricing is great. You might want to PM her.

www.avalondeco.com ( Remove the spaces) (Mod edited to provide working link.)

I know that this site has been recommended many times before, but can`t remember who had recommended them.

Yes - www.avalondeco.com. David is the best. Tell him I said hi. I don't know if it will help to drop my name, but you can try. He certainly knows me from ordering over the years. "Leah from Louisville."

Thanks for the replies. I am waiting to here back avalon. As far as cost goes on the cupcakes, wife said she has no idea yet. I guess it depends on flower cost. The bride wants 5 flowers on each cupcake....a cala lilly, hydrangea and maybe a sweet pea flower I think she said lol. Maybe I will research and see what everyone is charging for cupcakes here.

I like to purchase from David because he's a small business - like most of us.
