Our Testimonials

If you're thinking about ordering a fresh arrangement or meeting our talented staff to design your dream event, we thought it would be good to let you know some of the kind words our past clients have said about us. We hope you to hear from you soon, and we can add your reviews too!

"Saturday evening was magical for Mark and me. With dear friends and family at our side to share our joy and your stunning arrangements, it quite simply exceeded all of our expectations. I wish you could have been there to hear all of the "Ohhh's and Ahhh's" as our guests entered the dining room and saw the elegant setting. You made us very happy to be the hosts of such a beautiful occasion.  

Mark joins me in thanking you and your fine staff for all of your efforts to make our celebration the success it truly was.  Even the children had a wonderful time and appreciated your ideas. Again, thank you Oleta for making our wonderful evening a night we will never forget.  If there are any additional charges not covered by your original invoice, please let me know.  Thank you."

Kind regards to you and your fine staff,

"Tyler and I both wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work in helping us plan our wedding. It was a fantastic day – definitely everything that we had hoped and dreamed of.  We were beyond thrilled with the beautiful ceremony flowers, the gorgeous aisle and altar, the stunning reception arrangements, and the best day-of coordination – everything. We have had nothing but rave reviews from our family and friends. Without your detailed knowledge of local vendors, organizational skills and endless patience, we absolutely could not have pulled our beautiful day off. Thank you SO much!! : ) "- Marissa and Tyler Slayton

"Now that the wedding dust has settled, I want to let you know how much I have appreciated and enjoyed working with you in planning for Lindsay’s big day! The wedding and reception were so elegantly beautiful and the day unfolded flawlessly in every detail. And of course, Lindsay was a stunning bride to match. You are certainly the event creator extraordinaire… besides just being plain fun too! Thank you so much for being a big part of making a dream come true." -Donna

"Many women dream of the day when they will walk down the aisle and marry their best friend.  I had dreams too, but never did I dream of such a wonderful person like you, Oleta and your talented team to step into my life and turn so many dreams into reality.  I gave you a nothing but a simple vision of what I would like and so many times you said,  “I get you.” ... and you did. My special wedding day became so much more special because I knew that you and your staff would make sure of it.  I have grown to have confidence in you and the Flourishing Art team. Thank you for understanding what I had imagined.  My bouquet took my breath away and I received so many compliments that day about how the flowers and reception area were “just beautiful.”  Flowers are anything but fleeting moments of beauty, they communicate the moment and last for a lifetime of memories.  Thank you Oleta and Flourishing Art for helping to create our moments and memories."  -Monika & Brian Shields, February 2013

"Thank you very much for the flowers and arrangements you provided for my retirement celebration. My family and I truly enjoyed them and they helped make the evening perfect." Thanks, Dennis

"Just a note to let you know that you have an amazing team! Wow! With you being out of town, they were able to take the ball and run with it! The votives on the back patio at Luigi’s were beautiful (even though wind wouldn’t keep them lit) and they helped me in a pinch that day. Thank you for being there when I needed your team. With love, thanks, and gratitude" -Monica Sacco

"Thank you so much for the last-minute magic you worked on our wedding! Everything looked beautiful and we really appreciate all of your hard work and experience." The Jimersons

"Thank you so very much for designing the most beautiful bouquets for our wedding (as well as for our rehearsal dinner and reception). The flowers were extraordinary and made our wedding absolutely beautiful." Katie & Tim

"The flowers in the church added the right touch to a wonderful ceremony. The outdoor Italian reception was an amazing affair. The setting was stunning and inviting and fun – and you perfectly set the mood we wanted to create. The flowers were fantastic, but more than that, it was all the big and little details that made it so much more…. The whole evening was one fun surprise after another for our guests – defiantly an unforgettable evening for all involved. Thank you so much for your vision and hard work." Sincerely, Holly
