Flowers on a budget don’t mean that you have to scrimp on beauty. Flowers are a classic way of expressing any emotion: happiness, love, sympathy or appreciation. But in today’s economy, many are finding that flowers are a luxury that they can seldom afford. Just because your budget is on a diet doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to sending flowers to those you love. There are several tips and tricks to finding budget flowers for under $30 that are still gorgeous, fresh and convey whatever it is you need from them. Here are a few tips on cutting down on flower costs:
Take Advantage of Holidays and Occasions
Easter, Mother’s Day and graduation season are all common flower-giving events, and so many florists and floral delivery companies have specials to cater to the crowds who will be needing flowers for those occasions. Take advantage of those sale prices to also send flowers to others in your life. It is a great chance to send flowers to your significant other to let them know you are thinking of them, or to someone whose birthday may be around the same time as these occasions. This stunning bouquet of 1 dozen roses is usually $40, but it is on sale for $19.99 in honor of Mother’s Day. At this price you can get a bouquet for both Mom and that special someone in your life.
Choose a Bouquet of One Kind of Flower
Bouquets of flowers that feature just one type of flower not only look elegant and intentional, but they tend to be less inexpensive. The key is to personalize the bouquet by picking the recipient’s favorite flower or color. For example, this vibrant, multi-colored bouquet of tulips not only creates a dramatic visual impact, but because it is a simple arrangement of all tulips, it is only $29.99. You can even find 1 dozen roses for under $30 when looking for them in the less popular colors. Purple, white and yellow roses tend to be less sought-after than red and so are priced accordingly.

Less is More
For an elegant and understated look, one or two blooms of a type of flower that is commonly pricier is beautiful and thoughtful. FTD offers a beautiful arrangement that consists of a single breathtaking red rose in a matching vase. Red roses are the classic rose of love and receiving just one single red rose is a beautiful and simple way to express your love.
Remember that it is ultimately the thought that counts, and a gift of beautiful flowers is the perfect way to convey that loving thought!
