Where we begin.
Our process begins with a free consultation. This will usually last an hour and it is during this time that we start putting the pieces of your vision together. Bring those pieces with you! Floral inspirations, such as photos of arrangements, color and fabric swatches, bouquet styles, themes, personal pieces, art, and anything else you want to be a part of your celebration. If you aren't sure where to start, don't worry about it. We can pull from ideas and use our extensive floral knowledge to discover the event of your dreams and bring it to fruition!
How we price our work.
Each custom event is completely unique to each person's vision. Various factors that can determine your pricing include: size of arrangements and quantity of flowers, the season of your event, flower type and color, your venue's location, size, and layout, your event size, the intricacy of design, and any rentals.
The most efficient and beneficial way to price your event is to have you consider the budget you would like us to work within. We are then apt to bid you a proposal that will allow you to get the most out of your expenses. It is then that we are able to focus on your necessities and creatively plan alternatives to the things that are not on the top of your list.
