Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We did my Grandparents Funerals and we still get comments from them. its nice to go places that remember your work and how you do things. We did not go traditional by any means. sometimes making flowers and we were offered a job while at a service is nice to know that the public remembers you. This makes me proud of what we do.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If your looking for simple to complex you pretty much can get that. I can work off pictures and recreate things from that. I know a lot of names of flowers and plants being a master gardener.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That we have pride in our work, I have family in the floral Industry but not same businesses we all have our own. But not just a florist or balloonist... Let me use all my talents to make your day special as much as it can be. Sometimes its just ideas that you may not seen before.
