DIY Wedding Centerpiece Using Grocery Flowers – Under $15. Organic Garden Style! Wondering how to make a centerpiece or wedding bouquet from supermarket flowers? DIY grocery store bouquet? Grocery store flowers for your wedding centerpieces? In this guide, we are sharing how to make a DIY wedding centerpiece using grocery flowers – the best part? It will come out to be under $15 per centerpiece!
We created these easy, gorgeous organic garden-style centerpieces using grocery flowers! The total flower cost for each centerpiece came up to only $15!
Now it is hard to tell what will be available at your local grocery store flower shop. This is why what we used are the staples. These flowers are usually readily available at your local grocery store, or you can also pre-order them from the nearest flower shop (if that’s easier for you!).
To make your own DIY Wedding Centerpiece Using Grocery Flowers, scouting which grocery store has the best varieties will help!
In these arrangements, we used roses, carnations, and greeneries.

For the roses, we found creamy roses with light pink tips! So gorgeous and they look delicate and sophisticated!
We found them in the grocery flower shop for $24 a dozen! (almost $2 per stem!) Not too bad!
The carnations we found were shades of pink. We also found an antique pink shade that we fell in love with!
Guess where we found these carnations? We found them in the clearance section! So we got them 50% off per bunch or 3 bunches for $15! Of course, we had to go with the 3 bunches! What an absolute steal!
Greenery stems were a little hard to find, so we had to ask the florist what they have, and they said that they have Italian Ruscus for $3.50 each. These greenery stems are long and can be cut into pieces, so we only had to get 2 stems!
TOTAL FLOWER COST BREAKDOWN
- Roses: $24 per dozen ($2 per stem)
- Carnations: $15 per 3 bunches
- Italian Ruscus Greenery: $3.50 each x 2 stems = $7
- TOTAL: $46 ($15.33 per centerpiece, total of 3 centerpieces)
In terms of the vases, the grocery store flower shop only carried mason jars, and they were $4.99. Purchasing vases from your discount craft store will save you more money, but for this easy DIY grocery flowers centerpiece guide, we use what the grocery store has available and work with it!
