Clients are involve every step of the way. It is the clients choice if they would like to meet between 2 and 3 times.

Lastly, we will have our final consult 1 month before the event to finalize their big day.

Our in house staff handles everything from delivery installation, dismantle and rental retrieval. We have a large list of both services and rentals that our company offers in our 4,000 square foot warehouse including decor rentals, candles, props, lanterns, drapery installations and overall decor for the entire event.

We would hate to see our flowers go to waste. We have an in-house floral donation program with a local Nashville based Hospice Care Facility to donate our flowers if desired.
