  1. Assuming a $26 budget per table, you have 8 favors and 8 flowers.
    The 8 flowers cost 8*2.50
    That leaves for the favors,

    cost = (26-8*2.50)/8

    Better be cheap favors!

    And if your total budget is $26 for all the tables, forget it, since the flowers for a single table already cost $20!
