My husband and I will be leaving the CDA area - his family lives in Italy, so we will spend the summer there!
In the fall, he'll be either going to grad school or joining the Air Force, so we'll move wherever that takes us. I'm nervous to transition my business to a new place, but I'm sure it'll all work out!
It depends on how many arrangements you want! I have to buy the flowers wholesale, then I charge you that price plus some to make a profit.
It varies a lot based on what you get & how much - some flowers are way more expensive than others.
Absolutely, I try my best to be respectful of your financial boundaries. If what you want doesn't work with the money you have, we can figure out a way to simplify it and meet in the middle.
Once I give you a quote and you decide to hire me, I'll send you a contract to sign. Signing a contract means you'll be putting down a deposit at that time (usually 40% of your order). When I have a deposit and a signed contract from you, your date will be reserved and I'll be able to order your flowers!

I'm currently booking for 2023 in Coeur d'Alene Idaho and the surrounding areas. I am not booking for 2024 right now, because my fiance and I will probably be moving and we don't know where yet!
YES!! As long as you're willing to pay a travel fee, I'm willing to go anywhere & do flowers for you! Please note that this applies to weddings & big events only.
Yes! I can deliver everything to your wedding/event venue on the day of. If you have a large installation like a wedding arch, I'll come do it on site for you.
I am not, I work out of my home. This is why I specialize in weddings and events, I'm able to order your flowers far ahead of time. I don't usually have flowers on hand for last-minute retail orders.
I'd recommend at least a month or two before your wedding. I can do 1.5-2 weeks prior, but you'll be a lot less likely to get the flowers you want.
I would absolutely prioritize impactful arrangements - bouquets, centerpieces, arches, backdrops, etc. Smaller, less impressive pieces such as corsages and boutonnieres will barely be noticed by the attendees, so why spend money on them?
Consultations last approximately 30 minutes, but can take up to an hour for larger weddings. Here are some things that are helpful to know before you set up a consultation with me: Ceremony & reception date, location, time, & venue - Color scheme & theme - Floral needs: Bridal flowers, bridesmaids, flower girl, ring bearer, groomsmen, parents, ceremony (arch, aisle runners, altar, etc), reception (centerpieces, cake, etc) - Favorite flowers or flowers you hate - Inspiration pictures. Knowing these things ahead of time will help the consultation go much faster & smoother!
If you want good quality, they're actually more expensive than fresh flowers. Surprising, I know!
If I can't get the exact flower you want, I'll do my best to find a good substitute. Florists are definitely at the mercy of Mother Nature, but we do our best with the resources we have.
