Our flowers were gorgeous! Compliments came from all over and the flowers people took home lasted quite a while. Friends would text us saying that their gorgeous centerpiece was still in good condition even a week after the wedding. Our flowers were the perfect accent to our special day.Jun 15, 2017Verified
Marilee is awesome! Just booked her for my wedding in April and I know I won't be disapointed!Mar 6, 2016Verified
My wedding bouquet was exactly how I wanted it to be! Everybody loved them! We were impressed when how prompt she was not the day of the wedding also. It was a lot less stressful.Dec 11, 2015Verified
We hired Marilee to provide centerpieces, bouquets, and boutineers for our wedding on July 12th. And she did a phenominal job, the guests were all but fighting each other to take one of the centerpieces home! You'd think it would be my bouquet or my Matron of Honors bouquet that stole the show but it was the centerpieces! Everything was done on time and for a wedding everyone knows that is rare and she was always so happy and cheery it was easy to work with her as well as fun & something I looked forward to. Thank you Marilee you are in one word, amazing !Jul 22, 2014Verified
I'm so glad I found Marilee to be my wedding florist! Everything was perfect! It was even better than I had hoped for. It was hard trying to hire someone since the wedding was out of state but everything went well. I didn't have any problems and I highly recommend Marilee!May 27, 2014Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I dont think our pricing system is complicated. It just has a lot of variables. Our pricing depends on the weather all over the world, gas prices (because of shipping the flowers from So.America etc). It depends on the prices that we can accumulate the flowers for from the wholesaler. The prices usually are higher during the months of Jan.-Feb.(Valentine's) Apr-May (Mother's Day) Nov-Dec (Thanksgiving, Christmas). That is based on the growers and the shipping usually. You have to be ready for the competition. Stay on the game and keep updated on new trends.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am constantly keeping up with the new trends. The wholesalers have top designers that come from all over the country to teach us what is new in our field at least twice a year. I attend everyone of those classes. I walk away from the wholesaler knowing that I can forward those designs onto my customers. I am also reading in our trade books all the time. It always amazes me how the trends seem to come back every several years. I have been in this business for over 30 years and I have seen it come and I have seen it go.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I do alot of weddings, funerals, birthdays, anniversaries, welcome to your new job, new born arrangements, get well, I do alot of just because flowers. My business is seasonal as well. I do alot of Prom work, Valentine flowers, Easter, Mother' Day, Father's Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New Years. I also do alot of Gift baskets. Most have a variety of food items made to order. I do Goodie baskets with books, treats, toys for kids. We have GIFT CERTIFICATES for that flower lover that is hard to buy for.
