August Bouquet Recipes

The dahlias are coming in hot and they’re taking center stage in my bouquets this month. Our Signature Bouquets are $25 and we follow the recipes below to create a mix that our customers love. (I also use these for our subscription bouquets!) Be sure to follow a recipe based on industry standard pricing to be sure that you’re profitable. It’s easy to stuff a bouquet with flowers this time of year, but that’s a surefire way to lose money and leave your customers frustrated when your field is not quite as abundant.

In parenthesis you’ll see sample flowers that I would use together to create a great color palette. Feel free to substitute any variety or color that you prefer!
