Diane at Fat Cat Flowers is a fantastic florist and I would highly recommend her. She worked with me for months to make sure she knew exactly what flowers I wanted for our wedding. They were delivered directly to our room on the day of the wedding, and they were beautiful. They looked exactly like I had pictured!

Diane and her team at Fat Cat flowers provided us with beautiful flowers at 3 different locations on our wedding day. They were professional, had great ideas, and created beautiful bouquets and arrangements. They had everything as expected, on time to each location including hotel, church, and reception venue. They provided us with a professional spreadsheet that outlined the costs which was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Fat Cat Flowers to anyone.

Diane was the best decision we made for our destination wedding in New Orleans! She is so experienced and knew how to help us with so many things that weren't even flower related! It wasn't until I met her that I felt 100% comfortable with our decisions! She even came to our suite personally to check in with me and deliver our flowers. Her presence is just calming itself so you feel at ease with her service! She went above and beyond to even put batteries in our lantern candles for the ceremony without charging extra! The floral arrangements were beautiful and very large! I was incredibly surprised by her fees as we definitely received way more than we paid for! You will be very happy with her service and talent!

I got married in the French Quarter on November 16th. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Diane and Fat Cat Flowers! I could write a dissertation on how wonderful they were.
Accommodating, easy to work with, attentive, artistic.....and they have an eye for being able to fulfill the desires of those of us who are NOT experts in this field. I met with Diane, told her a little about our wedding, sent her my Pintrest board, gave her our budget, and told her to just "make it happen." I couldn't have been MORE PLEASED with the beautiful, classy, and incredible flowers and decor that they provided for our wedding.
Shortly after I met with Diane for the first time, we experienced a profound tragedy: My 22 year old daughter suddenly and unexpectedly passed away.....Kaycee died on July 10, 2013 and our wedding was scheduled for November 16. Ultimately, we decided that Kaycee would not want us to put off the wedding. I told Diane to just "do what she does" and make it happen....I just wanted to show up and get married.
Fat Cat Flowers work exceeded my expectations. She worked flawlessly with my wedding coordinator, to ensure that we had a perfect, beautiful, carefree wedding
I can't say enough wonderful things about Diane and Fat Cat Florists. I HIGHLY recommend them and am so glad that I was fortunate enough to have Diane and her company help to make our wedding PERFECT!

I cannot speak highly enough of Fat Cat Flowers and of its owner, Diane. She is a lovely person and a gifted artist. She listened to what we wanted, was respectful of our budget, and far exceeded our expectations. The bouquets and centerpieces were stunning and photographed beautifully. I still remember seeing my bouquet and tearing up at how she made my dream a reality. You'll love working with her and be exceedingly pleased with the results.

We had our wedding Jan 2013, with Fat Cat providing all the florals for the event (Bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres/corsages). We live out of town, but it was easy to coordinate with Diane over the phone/e-mail. We provided pictures of the types of bouquets and Diane worked with us on selecting the appropriate seasonal flowers in the style we liked. Day of, Fat Cat coordinated directly with our venue to deliver the florals. The bouquets were contemporary, fresh and beautiful. Happy with the results - highly recommend!

Fat Cat Flowers did our New Orleans wedding and was wonderful! It was a pleasure to work with Diane, who was very responsive and always gave excellent advice (including saving us money by advising us against using more flowers than we needed). And the flowers themselves were beautiful -- bright, fresh, and perfectly assembled. We can't recommend Fat Cat and Diane highly enough.

Ms Diane at fat Cat Flowers was so easy to work with, and the flowers came out better than I could have imagined! Would highly recommend her to everyone! She was also cheaper than other vendors in NO and produced the same or better work!

Diane and Fat Cat Flowers is absolutely amazing. From the very beginning, at my consultation, she was great to work with. I was initially impressed with how organized Diane was, pulling out a diagram of my venue, and how enthusiastic she was about my color selections and flower preferences. Her proposal to me was organized, included all that I wanted, and even included some great ideas I had not thought of. I had a large wedding party and needed table centerpieces for a large amount of tables, and her proposal and price was by far one of the best out there. She had no problem working with my limited budget.
Throughout the wedding planning process Diane would routinely check up on me and it seemed as if she genuinely cared about how I was doing during the stressful wedding planning process. I enjoyed her check ups and she always put me at ease.
On my wedding day, and cannot express how happy I truly was with how my flowers turned out. Diane showed up for delivery on time and was flexible with the two different drop off points for the various flowers. They were absolutely beautiful. I had a very specific idea in mind with my bridal bouquet and she executed it perfectly. My bridesmaids bouquets were playful and fun! The groomsmen even loved their boutonnieres, commenting on how different they were compared to the standard wedding or prom boutonnieres.
I had three different types of center pieces, all of which were gorgeous. My large, high center pieces were without a doubt my favorite. They lit up the room and helped me make my ballroom wedding my own. I had so many comments on how beautiful the flowers turned out from guests and from the venue itself. All of this was done within my budget and Diane was even helpful and open to a couple of last minute changes I had requested.
I cannot thank Diane and Fat Cat Flowers enough for her beautiful work on my flowers! She played a big role in ensuring that my wedding day turned out as I had always dreamed.

Diane at Fat Cat Flowers had a challenge ahead of herself - see if we could mask a tent pole in the House of Blue's Voodoo Garden with flowers versus bunting. She created a matching pole and decorated both with ribbon, hung different flowers/moss, etc. between and across the top of the two poles and put two beautiful urns with the same flowers at the bottom of each pole. I have no idea if this makes any sense, but it was BEAUTIFUL. The first thing I did the morning after the wedding was leave a voicemail for Diane - I just couldn't believe how beautiful everything she did was. We conducted everything over the phone and through photos via email and she nailed my vision. The colors, the type of flowers, the vision - all were perfect. It made me so happy. Thank you!

Diane Mouton is an artist. Well, so am I. Really. That's what I do for a living. So is my husband. So you can imagine we have very critical eyes when it comes to things of artistic beauty. Fat Cat appealed to us because Diane is so artistic and Oh My Gosh did she come through! I gave her a million reference pictures and then told her to just go wild and be creative. I cannot begin to tell you how IN AWE we were on the wedding day of what she did!!! ABOVE AND BEYOND what we were expecting!!! My bridal bouquet was just stunning!!! The flowers themselves were gorgeous and full and rich in color and her skill at arranging is brilliant. Everyone was just jaw-dropped, amazed at her arrangements at the reception. I was expecting "mostly green with pops of bright color" and we got mostly color accented with amazing greenery! I mean.....just too much!!! Not only were the flowers extraordinary, Diane was so sweet to work with and patient with me when I handed her a whole HANDFUL of charms to attach to the bouquets! She also re-delivered all of the reception flowers to the brunch site the next morning for a small fee....so we could enjoy them all over again! Fabulous! I cannot rate this talented artist high enough! A dream to work with, very reasonably priced, and i cannot wait to have an excuse to work with her again! Thank you Diane for making our whole wedding weekend beautiful!

Diane was so easy to work with. She was very helpful when it came to picking out the flowers for my arrangements and bouquets. I had no idea where to start. I loved all my flowers, they were so beautiful. I loved meeting with her, she was very informative and made sure she gave me in detail what I would get and how it would look. I loved loved my bouquet, it was beautiful!! I thought my table arrangements were going to be bigger, but they were gorgeous though! Everything looked great, thanks Diane!
