    Cristal & her team made my wedding dreams become a reality! Her initial meeting with me was very thorough & she helped me to narrow down what I wanted & she even worked with my budget. She has a great eye & I trust her decisions! Everything looked beautiful!

    All I can say is... WOW. We are so lucky we found Floral Design Creations for our June 2017 wedding. We knew we made the right decision from the very first meeting with Crystal. She is so incredibly kind and sweet and she really listened to our vision for our wedding. We used a shared Pinterest board to share ideas, but we gave Crystal a lot of creative freedom because we knew she would produce something amazing... and wow, she most definitely did! On our wedding day, we were blown away by how BEAUTIFUL and STUNNING everything looked! Crystal provided bouquets, boutinnieres, and corsages, and an arch for the ceremony and of course beautiful table arrangements for the reception. She even provided flowers for the windowsills and candles throughout the room. It was breathtaking and so romantic. I would HIGHLY recommend Crystal and her company for wedding flowers!

    Crystal was very helpful and creative during our consultation. She is very knowledgeable and made good suggestions as to what flowers I should use and what to stay away from. She definitely understood my vision as to what I want for my wedding in November. Her energy was great! Can't wait to see the final work! So excited! Thank you Crystal!

    Crystal is amazing! We only able to do a consultation but it was due to a venue/date change on my end. She understood my theme and expanded on my ideas in ways I couldnt of imagined. She is kind, professional and very skilled. I would recommend her to anyone.

    I hired Crystal to create an arrangement for my mom for Mother's Day. I forgot to order flowers ahead of time. I requested on Thumbtack on Saturday night and they were delivered by Sunday. My mom really liked the arrangement.

    Although I unfortunately had to change florists before my wedding date due to a change in funds, Crystal of Floral Design Creations was consistently responsive, flexible, open-minded and extremely reassuring. Right when I signed a contract with her, Crystal made and shared a collaborative Pinterest board for my event so we could communicate ideas and vision as we found examples of what we deemed as good ideas. Her prices were more than reasonable, she was always very prompt with correspondence, and really approached the event with the intention of keeping my style in the forefront. I would highly recommend Crystal Hawk for future events of loved ones!!

    Crystal provided floral arrangements for my wedding in Aug 2015. I'm so happy to have chosen her! From the time I hired her, she worked incredibly hard to make my vision a reality. The centerpieces were beautiful, as well as the gazebo decorations for the ceremony. I'm very happy with how things turned out! We were very impressed with the work. Thank you for everything Crystal!

    I had a Great Experience working with "Floral Design" Crystal made my centerpieces beautiful....I called Crystal the day of my event and requested some Roses for my guest...and She managed to get them in time....When I finally arrived Crystal help me set my table for my event.....Very grateful of "Floral Designs"....Everyone loved the "Peonies". The Price Floral Designs quoted me was affordable for my budget...Thank you "Floral Designs Creations." There was one small issue with the Main Centerpiece which I paid the most money for... was lacking....roses and smaller is size of what I imagined. I did't meet in person to show Crystal the exact size this was a via email photo. I rather had pay more money for a Larger Centerpiece than expensive Peonies.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Our planning services are priced according to the event. The larger the event, of course, the more planning is needed. We do vendor management, RSVP management, Venue location assistance. We also assist with Wedding Rehearsal, Wedding Ceremony and Reception.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Our typical process is to meet with the couple and find out about them, their relationship and their wedding theme. After that, we set the plan. We create a spreadsheet and calendar (which we share with the bride) to track all activities related to the wedding. We also set up a free wedding website to assist with RSVP management. We handle everything from start to finish till the wedding day.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I take design classes with the American Institute of Floral Designers. I like to stay current with the latest trends.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I got hurt on my EMT job many years back. A florist friend asked me to help her out over the holidays. I went in and helped. She saw how creative I was and how I had an eye for color and style, she trained me and the rest is history. Part of my duties was event planning. So I gained experience planning weddings for various brides. Each one with her own unique sense of style. This has helped me be a more well rounded planner. I also have on staff an expert party/wedding planner. She can bring the ideas and complement any occasion.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I do a lot of sympathy arrangements and weddings. Opposite ends of the spectrum, but both events bring joy and comfort through flowers. My clients are always impressed with my work.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently created custom arrangements for a staff for employee appreciation. Each arrangement was custom made with the employees favorite bloom. The flowers were a big hit! Each arrangement was beautiful and the client told me so.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
As a word of advice, look for a planner/florist with true skill. Flowers are pretty on their own. But only an experienced planner/stylist can make the standout from the rest. Dare to be different and express your individuality through flowers with a expert planner!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
1. What is my budget? 2. What is my wedding theme? 3. Do I want to plan my entire wedding with side assistance or 4. Will I entrust my planning to the planner?
