  • Packing fees: $1 per boutonniere, corsage, floral crown, or bud vase. $5 per bouquet or centerpiece. If the design work needs to be transported to the event venue, it needs to be packed in boxes and packing paper in order to keep everything hydrated, while avoiding smushed designs, broken vases, and spilled water. You can either bring your own materials to handle packing, or purchase our packing services.
