August 20, 2010, Newsletter Issue #318: Inexpensive Flowers Do Not Have to Be Cheap

Tip of the Week

Many people get confused by the difference between the words "inexpensive" and "cheap." While the definition of "inexpensive" is low cost, the definition of "cheap" includes low cost and poor quality. Because of the double meaning, the word "cheap" can easily be misunderstood and misused, leading people to make poor choices when it comes to purchasing goods such as flowers.

There are many different types of flowers on the market ranging in price from $1 a stem to $10 a stem depending on the area you live in and if you are purchasing wholesale or retail. Carnations are normally the most inexpensive flowers that you would find in a bouquet starting at about $1 each, but they are also some of the prettiest. As far as cheap flowers go, tulips are not very expensive either when you can find them for as little as $1.20 a stem. Roses are are more expensive flower you can find in bouquets, usually at around $2 a stem.

A beautiful bouquet of carnations can be just as pretty as a beautiful bouquet of roses since it is the arrangement that adds to the look as much as the flower choice itself. However, carnations and roses, no matter how inexpensive they may be, are not considered poor-quality flowers and should not be considered "cheap" in the negative sense of the term.

If you are looking for a way to save money on the next bouquet you buy or send, be sure to search online for discounts before your next purchase. There is no need to sacrifice quality or quantity.
