centerpieces

Oh yes, I am the proud owner of 80 of these bad boys.
My plan of action (POA) is to line 4 of these down each table with flowers of varying heights and types but in the same color family....say orange or yellow....
I snatched these up at Ikea and I think they provide the perfect simple but modern DIY centerpieces for our tables. And at 4 per table (of 8) each couple could take one home if they wanted to.
They were pretty budget friendly - @1.99ea and I figure if I can find flowers for an average of $2/$3 per stem; the 4 centerpieces for the table would come to a total cost of between $16 and $20; which judging from other centerpiece costs seems reasonable. yes?
I haven't priced out actual centerpieces or actually even talked with any florists yet, what are you ladies expecting to pay per table?

I'm using fiftyflowers.com, just one kind of flower, and arranging myself (and making my bouquets).
