AI have just recently started making sugar flowers, such as gumpaste peonies, and was wondering how people charge for them. I live in the U.S. In the Midwest. Thank you!
AIt's been some 10 yrs ago but when I asked this ? the replies mostly said to charge what a florist would for real flowers.
AWell, I can get a dozen roses for twenty five bucks at the grocery store, or for sixty from the florist down the street. So that's what, five bucks a rose? I personally wouldn't be interested in being paid that little. The only realistic flowers I make are roses, and usually giant ones about six inches across, and I don't get less than $40 a piece for one. I'm no flower expert for sure, but something tells me the orchids, and lilies and similar gp flowers take a lot more skill and time than a rose. ;)
I'd find a sugar flower forum/group on Facebook maybe, where they live and breathe that kind of work, and can guide you with current pricing.
AThank you for the replies. I will look for a flower group on FB. :-)
