Perfect Blue Orchids!Reviewed on 6/19/2015 Brenda K
I wanted to have my flowers done a particular way. I talked to other florists who talked about doing other types of flowers. Then I met Jim and his daughter at a bridal show! Jim explained that I could have what I wanted just on a slightly smaller scale, due to my budget. I was so excited to hear that!! Finally someone who really wanted to make my day exactly the dream I had envisioned!! We selected blue orchids that looked AMAZING! Also white roses and blue Hydrangeas for the bouquets! They were perfect in size and my guests all commented how great they looked! My cousin said the orchids looked like butterflies placed perfectly in between the other flowers! How amazing! My mother LOVED the wrist corsage that Jim had suggested! The dress she had would not have supported anything pinned and the beautiful band that Jim used worked and looked FABULOUS! My centerpieces were given away as gifts and everyone was fighting over taking home the orchids!!! They could not get over how beautiful they looked. Jim made sure that everything arrived perfect and onetime! We had a concern because of a huge rock concert that was in town and that traffic would be a problem, but Jim made sure things arrived on time and was placed perfectly !!! I can not say enough how WONDERFUL, FABULOUS, BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING the flowers looked and how it was all those things working with Jim (Curly Willow) !!! Thank you thank you Thank you!!!
Amazing!!Reviewed on 6/10/2015 Katie M
Jim is absolutely amazing to work with. Everything he said he was going to do he did! He really works with so you can stay on a budget but still help you keep the feel you want. I had a locket with a picture of my dad and lace from my dress that I wanted for my bouquet. Jim designed my bouquet exactly how I had pictured it. You won't regret using curly willow!
Fabulous Florist!Reviewed on 5/30/2014 Stephanie E
I have been using Jim and The Curly Willow as my go to florist for 3 years now, I don't know what I would do without him! He takes all my events from fine to FABULOUS!! He recently did my wedding in December 2013, the centerpieces were gorgeous! I had been envisioning these centerpieces for a lifetime and they turned out even better than my dreams! My bridal bouquet was out of this world as well, everyone commented all night how gorgeous it looked! Everything he does is top notch and stunning. The event planner at the Pittsburgh Athletic Association stated that it was "The nicest the room has look and he's seen a lot of weddings!" I credit that to Jim and his beautifully executed centerpieces and decor. I love working with him and his family, he has great ideas and is always willing to do whatever I want, he is extremely knowledgeable about flowers and knows what is going to look best. He is also very reasonably priced and delivers on what you ask for. I can't rave enough, I would give him a hundred stars if I could. I will forever use the Curly Willow as my florist for their quality flowers, beautifully designed work and friendly service!
My experience with Curly Willow was excellent, from my initial consultation to the execution. Throughout my wedding experience, it was important to me to book vendors who were small, family businesses. Curly Willow exemplified that characteristic. My florist, Jim, provided realistic ideas and pricing quotes while listening to my ultimate vision. I appreciated how he struck a balance between giving me what I wanted and being transparent on prices, availability of flowers, and his ultimate judgement on aesthetic as the professional. The flowers were stunning. My arrangements lived for weeks even after the wedding was over. The delivery was on time as well, and Jim really worked with me to help set things up. I was so satisfied with the service provided.
We loved working with the Curly Willow for our flowers! My bouquet was stunning and everyone complimented our centerpieces. They lasted for many days after the wedding, too!
Curly Willow-Floral master-Jim ShawlReviewed on 10/10/2015
Can't say enough about the beautiful flowers for my daughter's wedding. Jim is truly a master and an artist....is selection of roses,Gerbera daisies and greenery were just gorgeous, especially against the emerald green of the bridesmaids dresses and the bride's lace gown. I most heartily recommend his floral business....he will work his magic any time of the year, any flower you prefer, any colors you like.... He's great to work with and his eye for color and what type of flower works for your wedding is wonderful. Thank you Jim....you made the day that much more beautiful with your artistry! Ann Walter
Gorgeous!Reviewed on 10/07/2015 Kristina W
Curly Willow was awesome! They are experts at what they do and I couldn't be happier with how our arrangements for our wedding day turned out. Highly recommend!
Great JobReviewed on 9/24/2015
I was extremely pleased with everything - table arrangements were beautiful!
BEAUTIFUL flowers! Excellent service!Reviewed on 8/22/2015 Carly S
I had the pleasure of working with Jim from Curly Willow for my wedding flowers earlier this month. I would recommend their services to anyone. First of all, we started the process a little under a year in advance. In no way did he make me feel like I was there too early. He actually praised me for being organized! However, when it came to flowers, I only knew I wanted a certain kind. Well, Jim took that and ran with it. He showed me multiple books with options and made excellent recommendations based on our budget. Two days after our consultation, he sent over a proposal, which I can vouch would have been silly to pass down as I felt his value was excellent. He was extremely attentive and answered each of of my emails in mere hours after I sent them. He executed exactly what I wanted, especially the flowers on our cake and the centerpieces which were BEAUTIFUL! I couldn't have been more pleased. In addition, my bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, and all the guys boutonnieres were amazing. We got so many compliments on each of them. Lastly, besides excellent service, their eye for floral creativity is astounding. They are not your average florist shop, yet make sure what you choose suits you and your wedding well.
Amazing service!Reviewed on 8/03/2015
Jim was great to work with and worked well with our budget and ideas. On the wedding day, they delivered the flowers in multiple locations for us and all of them were delivered in the proper location and ahead of schedule. I had so many compliments on my bouquet along with all of my bridesmaids flowers. The church arrangements were spectacular as well! Our wedding was on June 13 and my bouquet is STILL beautiful two weeks later!! I highly recommend the Curly Willow!!!

Jim was wonderful to work with. He listened to what I wanted, made suggestions, and delivered a spectacular display of centerpieces, bouquets, and corsages/boutineers. I would recommend the Curly Willow for any event!
Perfect flowers for my perfect day!!Reviewed on 2/05/2015
The Curly Willow did an amazing job with the flowers for my wedding! When I first met with Jim I wasn't really sure of what kind of flowers I wanted to use in my bouquets and he was able to come up with something perfect and within my budget. They are a family owned business and they are great people all around. I would absolutely recommend them for any floral needs!!
Beautiful FlowersReviewed on 12/18/2014 Heather R
We worked with Jim at the Curly Willow for the flowers for our December 6, 2014 wedding and he did a great job. The flowers were beautiful and very affordable. He did a great job and I would highly recommend him!
8/31/14 WeddingReviewed on 11/04/2014 Amanda D
I was having difficulty finding a florist as apparently my ideas were too grand for my budget. Jim from the Curly Willow put all of those potential florists to shame. He worked with me to achieve absolute beauty at both our ceremony & reception. He was extremely flexible as I worked through my ideas that ended up morphing into gorgeous arrangements & very responsive. Thanks to Jim my wedding was stunning - If you're looking for a florist with creativity, flexibility & one who is budget-friendly, Jim is most definitely the way to go!
Terrific!!Reviewed on 10/26/2014 Tessa W
Our daughter's wedding day was beautiful, made all the more so by the skilled hands of Curly Willow. At our first meeting, ee gave Jim a scheme and a vague idea of what we envisioned. Jim ran with it, creating bouquets and swags that far surpassed our expectations. Each arrangement burst with color and graceful beauty using blooms I never dreamed could be p aired with others. With little direction, Jim read our needs and deftly made them come to life. Thank you, Curly Willow for bringing more beauty to an already gorgeous day.
Even better that I imagined!Reviewed on 8/14/2014 Angie D
I used Curly Willow for bridal and maid of honor bouquets as well as corsages and boutonnieres for our wedding. Jim took the time to sit down with us and review the ideas and photos I had as well as provide his ideas and suggestions. He hand-delivered the flowers on our wedding day and they exceed our expectations! His bouquets were absolutely beautiful and received numerous compliments! Highly recommend!
AMAZING FLOWERS!!Reviewed on 8/14/2014 Kristy B
Curly Willow (Jim) did a fantastic job for our wedding. The flowers were amazing... I'd recommend to all brides!! Thank you!! :)
Totally Awesome!Reviewed on 8/14/2014 Diana
They listened to what I wanted and gave great advice on how they would put it together. The flowers turned out beautifully! We actually gave away the center pieces at the reception away to guests! they were so beautiful and fresh and added such a great touch to the wedding. And they worked with me to provide breath taking bouquets that fit within my budget!

Loved my flowers - everything I dreamed of!
Exactly what I'd wantedReviewed on 6/19/2014 Sandra K
Curly Willow made it easy, and did exactly what I wanted without any hassle or many times emailing/over the phone discussions. So easy, and was absolutely gorgeous. Their flowers were what my guests noticed!
Curly Willow RocksReviewed on 3/05/2014
Curly Willow was one of the few vendors I used that were actually prompt with their responses. Planning a wedding is extremely time consuming and stressful, so I found their quick replies comforting and respectful. They were flexible, understanding, and best of all my flowers were stunning! They gave me exactly what I wanted- based solely from my verbal description! Exceptional, awesome people, exceptional, awesome flowers. Highly recommend Jim and his team at Curly Willow for weddings and events in the greater Pittsburgh area!
Absolutely Beautiful!Reviewed on 2/16/2014 Jake K
Jim did such a great job with our bouquets, corsages etc. I provided him with pictures of things I liked from Pinterest, and he created something even more perfect than I could have imagined! We had our wedding/reception in a barn and wanted our flowers to go along with the overall rustic elegance of our wedding. He used dahlias, hydrangeas, thistle pods, seeded eucalyptus and anemones to create full, natural bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids. Simple seeded eucalyptus and anemones made up corsages and boutonnieres for the rest of the bridal party. Jim also provided us with loose blooms so we could create our own centerpieces. When a particular type of flower that we requested didn't come in quite to his standard because it was the beginning of their season (I thought they were still beautiful), Jim gave us extras of another type of flower at no charge along with everything else he had promised.
Curly WillowReviewed on 1/29/2014 Stephanie S
After getting engaged, we quickly set our sights on a December wedding. The location of our wedding was ideal for us, though we wanted the venue to look like rustic meets Christmas theme. Curly Willow had been highly recommended by multiple trusted sources, and now that all is (unfortunately!) over, I could not agree more. From the first moments of planning, it became obvious that Jim's vision was going to help capture our dream of a white Christmas wedding. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and when given just a few of my ideas, was able to turn our venue into a wedding that belonged in a magazine. The process of working with Curly Willow was stress-free (which is a huge plus for a bride and those involved!) and as the wedding date came closer, I had not one concern that they would help us with our dream come true. Even as we made changes throughout the process, Jim always maintained a positive attitude and set our minds at ease. We received countless compliments on the decorations (Christmas trees, barn doors framed with lighted curly willow, wreaths, pillars wrapped in garland, beautiful garland draped over the bar and elegant center pieces) and there is no doubt that without Jim and the team at Curly Willow, our wedding would not even the event that it was: everything my husband and I could have ever wanted! Highly recommend Curly Willow and we cannot thank them enough for all they did for us; our pictures are stunning!
Beautiful florals for my weddingReviewed on 1/26/2014
Jim at the Curly Willow did a wonderful job of making my vision come to life. The execution was perfect and the comment I still get is about the unique artichokes in all the bouquets. Everyone loved them! He really made my colors pop and was professional, detailed and a pleasure to work with. Such beautiful work for all our wedding florals.
