Rene and the Blossom and Basket crew were amazing! Their attention to detail was unmatched and made me the happiest I had ever been about flowers in my entire life. The price can fluctuate but this company is very sincere in trying to get you your "perfect arrangement" at a... Read More price you can afford. I personally had an initial price that was outrageous and Rene saw the concern in my face. She was so talented and came up with alternate ideas to work with me to get a more affordable cost without sacrificing elegance. I also really enjoyed the fact that they had everything under control and I didn't have to do a thing. I would definitely recommend this flower boutique to any one! Not only were the flowers beautiful but the customer service and care was on point for this, at the time, frazzled bride to be. I am so happy with the turn out and will use this company for any future flower needs. They've got a customer for life! -Kendra Jones, July 21,2017

Rene and her team did a beautiful job for our summer wedding. I felt like Rene really listened to what I wanted and was able to make it come to life. I wanted simple and clean flowers and I appreciated that Rene respected that and did not try to talk me into getting something... Read More more extravagant. I felt like they wanted to create my vision and make my wedding beautiful, not try to make more money off of me. Blossom and Basket was extremely nice when I changed my mind multiple times and did not make me feel at all bad about it. Rene personally delivered my bouquet on my wedding day and ensured I was happy with everything. They were all extremely friendly, easy to work with, and talented. The flowers and centerpieces were exactly what I wanted. During the wedding planning process, Rene also provided the flowers for my mother's memorial service with only a few days notice. She did a phenomenal job and personally drove 45 minutes early on a Saturday during wedding season to set up the service and offer her condolences to my father and my family. I feel like she (and all of the other wonderful people at Blossom and Basket) truly care about their clients and I highly recommend them for any event.

My son and his bride-to-be asked me to organize the flowers for the wedding thinking that because I (kind of) like to garden that I would know something about wedding flowers. They live overseas, so I was on my own. Thank goodness I found Blossom and Basket. Rene immediately... Read More clarified my muddled vision of the wedding flowers and set my heart at ease. Everything was easy, pleasant, and professional: emails, phone calls, changes and tweaks to the order, invoices. On the day of the wedding they cheerfully made two trips to the venue to accommodate photography and reception schedules and even arrived to set up in matching aprons. The flowers were beyond everyone's expectations - absolutely breathtaking. And the cherry on top was the hand-written thank you card my now daughter-in-law received a week after the wedding. Working with them was an absolute joy.

Rene also made me feel super secure about all the arrangements, even without seeing exactly what they would look like (and I'm a bit of a micromanager!). They even accommodated my somewhat last-minute desire to include some acorn caps into my dad's boutonniere (he loves acorns!). The flowers, of course, turned out beautifully. I am getting my bouquet preserved because it was so beautiful. It was also wonderfully cost-effective, which was a big deal for us! Thanks, Rene and company! Highly recommended!

I have had the pleasure of working with Rene and her team at Blossom and Basket Boutique for two family weddings now, and can say that for both of them, we had flowers that perfectly complemented each ceremony!! When we first met, six years ago, to discuss my daughter's... Read More wedding, I was anxious as we described the colors and "look" we wanted.

But this time, I walked in confident... knowing that with my idea in mind, Rene could bring it to life with gorgeous floral arrangements. And she didn't disappoint! My bouquet of roses and calla lilies was simple, elegant, gorgeous, and resilient (I carried it throughout the hot, humid wedding day, to the airport, through security, and onto a week-long cruise for our honeymoon because it was too beautiful to leave behind!), and all of our accent flowers were stunning as well. If you want a team who will work together to bring your vision to life, or even to help you come up with a vision for what your flowers could be, this is the place! We will always go back to Blossom and Basket Boutique for all of our floral needs!!!
