Thank you, Michelle. It was my pleasure!
Laura was amazing and really knows what she is doing. She was flexible and patient and really wanted to understand the look I was going for. The flowers were even more beautiful than I imagined. I would highly recommend working with Laura.Jun 28, 2018Laura M.'s reply
I am so glad you found me on Thumbtack! It was my sincere pleasure working with you. I enjoyed every moment and I, too, was very pleased with the results. Thank you so much for your kind words - much appreciated!
Laura was wonderful to work with! She really worked with me to put together something beautiful within my budget. When I first met with her I knew very little about what flowers were in season, what was practical, or what different styles were called; I basically just knew what color scheme I wanted. Laura helped me figure out what I wanted, and then did a wonderful job delivering. Everything looked beautiful and I couldn't be more thankful or thrilled!Jan 31, 2017
When planning our daughter's wedding with her, we brought some ideas and our budget to Laura, who helped us with every single detail from concept to delivery on the big day. Laura made sure she understood what we had in mind, helped us determine what would work best with our preferences and made many suggestions for us to choose from. Her creative expertise and experience with big events shows in her attention to every detail. In the end, we were thrilled with the result - the bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres and displays were even more stunning than we could have imagined! (And we are picky!) They arrived fresh and beautiful and she gave us instructions regarding how to keep them that way right through the day. There is nothing I would change - she gave us more than we expected. A very professional and gifted floral designer. We give her 10 stars!Mar 5, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing of flowers depends on the wholesale market. I choose to work with seasonal flowers and will always advise
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I am new to Thumbtack. Typically, I enjoy meeting the client in person. I like to get a sense of personality and expectations. With dialogue, I can offer my suggestions and ideas.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?In 1994, I got a job as a floral assistant at an upscale shop. Two years later, I bought the business. The training I received from two talented designers allowed me to expand and grow my business. I sold the retail business after several years to focus on parties and weddings, which I love.
