Do you accept more than one event/wedding per weekend?
-If I deem the scale of the event/wedding large enough that other events would interfere with my work, I will close off the weekend and only accept the one event/wedding. Typically, I can accept 2-3 events/weddings per weekend depending on the scale. My services are on a first-booked basis - I do not hold weekends open without a deposit.
How much will my event/wedding flowers cost?
-Each event is entirely unique. I do not offer cookie-cutter packages because I want to offer a tailored experience for every client I meet with. The price of flowers varies depending on several factors: time of year, seasonal availability, market pricing, varieties of flowers used, style of arrangements, and the scale of the event.
As a general rule of thumb, clients can budget for approximately 5%-20% of their event/wedding budget.

I have my own vases/containers, are you able to design with them?
-Yes, I can definitely design your arrangement in the containers you have provided they are clean, free of stickers/labels, and undamaged (no chips/cracks). I will need to know the dimensions of the containers before I can provide a quote.
Do you deliver?
Yes, I deliver anywhere in Edmonton, the Greater Edmonton Area, and beyond!
Can I set up my own flowers at my event/wedding?
-This depends on what you have ordered. Low table centrepieces in vases can easily be transported and placed directly onto tables. For larger pieces such as archway attachments, chuppahs, or floral installations, I recommend investing in professional services, which we provide.
Do you travel outside of Edmonton for events/weddings?
-Yes I can! I offer delivery and set up throughout Edmonton and the Greater Edmonton Area. I am more than happy to deliver and set up florals in outlying areas such as Ardrossan, Millet, Devon, Sturgeon County, and farther afield such as the Rockies and beyond!
If I supply my own flowers that I have purchased elsewhere, can you arrange them for me?
-No. I will not work with flowers that have been purchased elsewhere, either from another florist or a grocery store like Costco. I can't guarantee the quality of the product, and it would be like bringing your own steak to a restaurant and asking the chef to cook it for you.
Do you work with artificial flowers?
No, I no longer offer artificial bouquets or arrangements. After doing research into single use plastics, I do not feel it is ethical to work with artificial flowers or greenery as I am focused on increasing sustainable business practises and wish to support local whenever possible,.
I LOVE the look of bleached/dyed flowers. Can you please include them in my arrangements?
I will not work with any product that has been dyed, bleached, sprayed, or preserved with chemicals (I will work with naturally air-dried flowers). The amount of chemicals it takes to dye and bleach flowers is incredibly harmful to human health, as well as the environment. These chemicals are known to be carcinogenic and are often not disposed of properly. It goes against my ethics to work with these altered flowers.
