How many individual hops flowers are in an ounce of fresh hops from Freshops

I'm planning to buy whole hops for use in wedding favors. I've brewed a few batches of beer, but only with hop pellets, and haven't ever handled the buds by themselves. So: how many ounces do I need to buy to get at least 110 buds?
Backstory: the favors are going to be 2 oz jars of honey with a single hop bud in each, probably Cascade. These will be along with bottles of my own honey ale, also made with cascade hops. My hope is that the honey will take on the citrus and herbal flavoring without becoming overtly bitter. Any thoughts from the hive as to why this might be a bad idea?
