Design Process

When you book SF.Fleur for your event, I endeavor to design not only beautiful florals but to also create an enjoyable experience for you by understanding your needs and wishes to bring your ideas to life. 

    Working with each person or couple will always be different but for everyone, I follow a standard process to ensure I provide my best service to you. Upon hiring me and the studio as your floral partner, service includes regular check-ins, design reviews, coordination with your planners and other vendors for your event and a final floral review before we move forward.

    A typical design process may look like this:

    • Introductory Consult
      You get to learn about me, and I get to learn about you and your event! This may also be the time I gather information from you to create an estimate or proposal.
    • Request for Proposal/Estimate
      If you would like me to draft up an estimate for your event, I do so for your review
    • To Book or Not to Book?
      After reviewing your initial proposal/estimate, you can move forward to make a booking if you’d like.  A booking deposit guarantees our services for your event on that particular day.  You may also forgo the deposit and look us up later but availability is not guaranteed. Please note we only book at most 1 year in advance.
    • Design Review
      Once you have placed your initial deposit, we provide a contract and  develop the designs for your approval in further detail.  
    • 3 Months Before Your Event 
      This is our check-in to see where we are with floral designs with you. Minor adjustments and additions are usually made around this time.  However, if completely new designs are needed for the entire event, it incurs an extra design fee to go through the initial design process again. 
    • 1 Month Before Your Event 
      We confirm the final designs and your floral order. 
    • 2 – 3 Weeks Before Your Event
      During this time we may be communicating with you or your planner, the venue, etc. to make sure all goes according to plan.
    • Day of Event
      Flower time!

    To maintain a high standard of work, the studio commits to one full-service floral event per day. This ensures the utmost care and attention to all my floral clients. To secure services, please place a deposit for the date of your event. Once that's confirmed, I’m your flower gal on speed dial.
