    My flowers were gorgeous, and I think I got a great deal when comparing to friends' experiences. I had almost no preferences/opinions about flowers, but the questionnaire helped her understand my tastes and I ended up with something exactly to my tastes!

    Sharon was very easy to work with. From day one she sent me information, met with me in person, and was quick to make changes I requested. All of the florals looked stunning at my wedding (I did think they would be more full than they were, but beautiful none the less)! Sharon showed up and did her work without question and made the process stress free. I would hire her again in an instant.

      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.
