Our Sam's Club Flowers Have Arrived! Lots of Photos!

Look what showed up on my doorstep yesterday!


I know that there must be some other brides out there that are looking at potentially using Sam's Club for their bulk flower order. So, I thought it might be helpful to see my flowers that came in yesterday. Our wedding is on Saturday, so I'll write an update when the time comes to describe how they held up on the day of. 


We ordered:


(3 orders) of the 100 stems of mini sunflowers= 300 mini sunflowers


(3 orders) of the Assorted Filler Flowers 8 bunches= 24 bunches of assorted filler flowers


Our total, including tax, shipping, and a $10 Sam's Club "guest" fee, was $309.57. (All the prices listed on the Sam's Club website include shipping). Each order of 100 sunflowers was $37.68, equaling $113.04 for all 600 (about 19 cents per stem). Each order of 8 bunches of assorted flowers was $52.66, equaling $157.98 for the total of 24 bunches.


They arrived on the fedex truck at around noon yesterday. I am completely impressed. They are gorgeous!! Someone did have to sign for the package, which is fine since the flowers need to be cut and put in water immediately. I totally underestimated how big of a job this was. It took over three hours and I broke two pairs of scissors! I would recommend having some help, wire cutters, and a possible some tin snips. My order did not come with any flower preserver as stated, but I was able to buy a little from a local flower shop. 


Now, enough talk...onto the photos...


The flowers arrived in six boxes:

This is what the boxes of sunflowers looked like. The box includes 100 sunflowers in bunches of 10 flowers.

Here are all 600 sunflowers out on the picnic table.

There were four types of assorted flowers. This is the first. I have no idea what it is but it is on a branch with evergreen-type needles and hard red buds on the end that look like raspberries. If anyone knows what this is, let me know!

There were also hypericum berries which were gorgeous...

Now that they have had water and food, they have perked up even more and are gorgeous! We ordered them four days ahead of time because of a review on Sam's Club website about the sunflowers being very closed up and needing at least four days to open. However, as you can see they are almost all open and beautiful. We just hope they last until Saturday! We now have them down in the basement, in a cool dark area in hopes that it will keep them fresh. :)

These look great! I have enclosed a link that may help the sunflowers keep a bit better for the next few days.
