a Locally Sourced Event or Wedding
option is new for 2016. I have always wanted to use locally
sourced flowers from right here in Sonoma County to create the floral
designs for the entire wedding or event instead of making a trip to the
San Francisco Flower Market. This option is perfect for the
with a very specific budget who is open to letting me choose the
flowers and colors to be used, based on what is grown locally and is in
season. It is also ideal for smaller corporate events and
rehearsal dinners, again where you are open to letting me choose the
flowers and colors for the event.
If you choose to have a
completely locally sourced event here in Sonoma or Napa counties, there
is an event minimum of $500 rather than $2500 required when exact
flowers are specified for an event and a custom buying trip to the San
Francisco Flower Market is required.
The individual prices for
designs are the same as the regular price list. So the
you want must be realistic. Such as if you want 10 center
5 brides maids’ bouquets, a bride’s bouquet and 6 boutonnières you
would not have a $500 event. Please see price list for starting
and average prices for individual designs. By adding up the
individual costs of all the designs you want, it is easy to see
realistically what the approximate total cost would be.
note that delivery and set up charges are always based on distance to
the venue, time spent on site for set up and if pick up of rental
equipment or breakdown at the end of the event or the next day is
is a check list to determine if this option can work for your wedding
or event. If the answer is yes to all of these, then this
work for your wedding or event.
Your event is in the months of April to November, our outdoor growing
season here in Sonoma County.
are completely comfortable in letting me choose the flowers and colors,
as locally grown crop changes with the seasons and not all flowers and
all colors are available at all times.
You do not have strong
dislikes for certain types of flowers. Such as, “I do not
or dahlias.” In some seasons one type of flower may be the
abundant flower grown and needed to make the most of locally grown crop.
event has a very rustic, casual and natural theme. Locally
flowers tend to be wildflower or country garden varieties. Of
there are a few exceptions such as garden roses and hydrangea that
bring in elegant and lush elements to floral designs. When
in season locally, I use them if their cost fits with your budget.

to. There are outlying areas of both counties that we do not
to, including some Sonoma County coastal regions and eastern and far
northern sections of Napa County.)
This option is not a good fit for your event if you answer yes to
either of the following.
I must have certain flowers or certain colors. Such as, “I
must have peonies in my bouquet.”
I have a Pinterest Board or photos of the designs I want. And
the designs must look like those in my photos.
