    I have never been big on flowers and Flor Amor made the fully greenery boho wedding of my dreams come true. To say I was extremely pleased is a great understatement. From the beautiful greenery head wreath to the greenery elegantly strewn across the head table (that I asked for three days before the wedding), Sharon was not only patient and flexible but made me feel confident that I would get quality work for the price that worked for me. The guests at my wedding were smitten by the arrangements and I could not be more pleased with Sharon's work.

    Sharon was really great. She listened to exactly what I wanted and the flowers for my wedding turned out amazing and at a reasonable cost. Prior to the wedding, she was available with any questions. I would definitely recommend Flor Amor.

    Austin Wedding
    We hired the company Flor Amor to make boutiners and bouquets for our wedding using Texas wildflowers. All of the items we purchased arrived and were beautiful. Sharon worked with me as I was being indecisive on which flowers to use and helped select the flowers we received.

    Perfect...Absolutely Perfect!
    Sharon was AMAZING!! She knew EXACTLY what I was looking for and she didn't deviate from the vision which I really appreciated. Everyone raved about how beautiful our ceremony aisle markers were, our bouquets, the boutonnieres, centerpieces, cake florals.. it was perfect. I highly recommend her!!!!

    A TRUE ARTIST
    I did not meet Sharon until the day of my daughters wedding. I had only sent her a few pictures of what we wanted and we verbalized my daughters vision. We could not have been any more pleased. My daughter thought that all of the flowers were beautiful and they truly were. Sharon set out all of the flowers on the tables and did a beautiful job on decorating the archway at the venue. She also did the flower arrangement on the cake from a quick photograph that we had sent to her. It was truly magical. Sharon has a true artistic gift and I can't thank her enough for helping to make my daughter's wedding day so special. THANK YOU SO MUCH SHARON.

    Flor Amor creates the floral designs for my annual 4th of July party - always unique and always pleasing.
  • Kathleen B. Sep 8, 2015
    Sharon at Flor Amor was great! She took the time to get to know me and what I wanted. Even though I added some things that took me over budget, it was totally worth it. Would definitely work with her again!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
My typical event consultation for floral services begins with the initial ballpark quote. The value quoted is based on the average price in Austin, however, it can easily be adjusted up or down depending on the style and type of flowers you want to use. Contact me through Thumbtack to get a more custom consultation, I will then resubmit the quote based on the specifics we discuss.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I took basic art classes all through elementary, middle, and high school, then went on to study Fine Arts in college at the University of Houston, then at the University of North Texas. My studio focus included drawing, jewelry making and casting, oil and watercolor painting, and 3-Dimensional design. I finally declared Fashion Design as a major in my junior year at North Texas, but never utilized it professionally. I began working with flowers while still in college, opened my first flower shop in 1993, and became a Texas Master Florist in 1996.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
How willing are you to compromise to meet your budget? Are you set on using Peonies, Orchids, Tropicals or Succulents when the same look can be achieved with more budget friendly choices? A floral professional should be able to recommend a variety of flowers, as well as the seasonal availability, colors, and price. If you fall in love with a photo of a $500 bouquet, your chosen professional should be able to help you achieve the same look regardless of your budget. I promise to make the bouquet of your dreams, regardless of the cost.
