Do you have an event minimum?
We offer 3 levels of service for events: Full Service, Hourly and Drop-Off/Delivery.
Our Full Service minimum begins at $3500 floral spend + production fee on Oahu and $4500 floral spend + production fee on the outer islands. Full-day service includes the care and delivery of your personal florals according to your event timeline, ceremony and reception setup and breakdown/cleanup with myself and my team.
Determining the level of service is discussed with each of our clients. For most of our proposals, I include Ala Carte options so each couple can make their own decision. However, in some cases where the timeline is tight, the planner requests it or the florals entail intensive design and labor, Full Service is the best option.
Do you work with smaller floral budgets?
Absolutely! I was a former diy bride who eloped! I love to work with my clients to advise how they can get their best floral designs within their budget. Oftentimes we can come up with a plan that is both beautiful and cost-effective. Pre-arranged florals and a delivery or setup-only service is possible and we always discuss getting the most out of your florals.
Are you LGBTQ+ friendly?
Yes, yes, a million-times yes! Love is love and this world needs more of it, not less.
How many events do you do per month?
We only take a handful of events a year. What I love most is working closely with my clients to create unique and original work just for them. Floral design is a creative outlet that also gives me an escape from my corporate life, too! Keeping it small and intimate is the way to go (at least for me). Creative burnout is real and the last thing I want to do is bring that kind of energy into our work.
How do you design our flowers?
I spend a lot of time invested in my clients to understand their styles, tastes and what they like to ensure their designs are what they are envisioning; selecting and designing florals that I think they will love. I consider the flowers as just one contribution to the overarching feel or theme of your event so I like to consider everything holistically when we get down to designing the florals and styling for the setup of the day. It's about what works best to achieve the desired look or feeling imagined. In that sense, we are more of an art and design studio. I'd like to think the work we produce and our level of service and expertise reflects the thoughtfulness and consideration given to designing your florals.
How far out in advance can I book with you?
We only take bookings a year in advance. Three to six months out allows for enough time to design your event.
When is the latest you will take on events?
I ask for a minimum of one month to work with you in designing your florals. In that month, we work on an expedited timeline. If we can pick up a last minute floral order, we try!
Do you travel for floral services?
Yes! Production and material fees may vary according to region. Travel and accommodation would be included in the estimate. Depending on the destination, sometimes portions of the fees may be reduced if we have the means to cover our way since we love to travel!
