With fall in full swing, many schools, churches and other organizations are looking at small budgets and a calendar full of events and holidays covering the next several months. Armed with a limited budget and a desire to make some memorable events, many organizations are fundraising with flowers to leverage the monies they have available to cover the cost of their upcoming festivities.
Flowers have always been widely used for fundraisers both large and small. With relatively little cost up front, organizations can purchase wholesale flowers at discount prices and make a healthy profit.
WIth thousands of varieties of wholesale flowers to choose from, many customers lean towards Carnations as their flower of choice. Carnations are hardy flowers which require little effort and can generate high returns.
Carnations are some of the longest-lasting wholesale flowers on the market. They are hardy flowers which can handle being out of water for several hours without wilting and are ideal for school and church fundraisers where customers purchase the flowers and then take them home.
Carnations are ideal for organizations with limited resources. Unlike many other varieties of wholesale flowers, Carnations require very little by way of flower care. Upon arrival, flowers simply need to be cut and placed in water - no refrigeration needed!
Roses, Gerbera Daisies and other similar wholesale flowers can be quite pricey when sold by the stem. Once labor and material costs are calculated, there often isn’t too much room for profit - especially when trying to stay at an affordable price-point. Carnations on the other hand are a relatively inexpensive flower which, with little effort, can be sold for a great profit.
