Thankfully this time of year there is plenty of greenery and flowers around (even if they belong to the neighbors!) to brighten up the area in which we live.

I answered "we don't buy flowers". I would rather spend my money on good food.

Your choices are too specific… anywhere between 15-50

Whatever they charge at Trader Joe's. DH bought me two bouquets that I combined in one vase. They're lovely.
In the past, I purchased flowers from our shul (they do it every year as a fundraiser), but they're expensive and disappointing.
TJ's rarely disappoints.

Sometimes our neighbor lets us pick from her bush, if we remember in time. Otherwise it's whatever the kids bring home.

I voted 30-40. Shavuos usually happens to be when we start getting peonies where I live, so I like to buy some, and they’re not cheap.

Always over a hundred and I budget accordingly. I enjoy flowers and tablescapes, I’m a real baki in flowers and they are worth every penny to me

I usually beg DH Not to buy flowers. I know it's pretty, but to me it's a waste of $.
If he has an empty wallet, he won't. If he has $10-$15 on him he might. I like them if he does buy them, but I would rather he not. (sounds weird?)

Usually around 75 but prices must’ve gone up or my taste got more expensive because my bouquet today was around 110.

I usually buy flowers. I. Try to go to ShopRite as opposed to the Jewish stores so it's a little cheaper. There is one specific shop right where I live that always gets tons of flowers in for Shavuos. I do like how flowers look but I'm not willing to spend the fortune on them. I probably spend in the $40 range or so, maybe a little bit less idk
I bought lots of flowers for outside my house though. Lol

I arrange my own from my local supermarket (Tesco in UK). Carnations are $3 and roses are $5. Plus they last longer. I made 2 beautiful bouquets for under $20.

Doesn’t sound weird at all. I feel the same way about my husband buying flowers.

I've just spent 210₪ on flowers. More than I normally spend, but I couldn't decide between two beautiful bunches, so I bought both!

In justification (at least to myself), I didn't buy flowers all of last year, because of shmitah, and I somehow didn't get back into it this year. So once in eighteen months, I can splurge!

I just bought very pretty flowers from the roadside stand for 40 shekel. $13
I don't need my whole house decorated with flowers. One bouquet on the table is lovely.

None. I hate how I spend money and a week later they are dead. We have a lot of lovely fake silk flowers in our home instead.

I came here to say the same thing. Trader Joe’s has the best flowers, we get about $15 worth.

We don't buy flowers weekly since dh suffers from having them around so we usually just for buy for shavuos. We probably usually spend around $45.
