“I just wanted to thank you so much for helping make our room BREATH TAKING. I’ve seen brides on TV get blown away by a room and want to cry and I’ve always thought that was so ridiculous…but I swear that happened to me. It was just unbelievable.

What you did for us was amazing and thank you. These pictures, thanks to Konrad, express the flowers at their best and if not exactly how I remember them, better.”

Thanks so much for everything.

“The flowers you did for our wedding were spectacular. We were very impressed with the execution of the centerpieces and candlelabras. Thank you for working so closely with me until we found the “perfect” candlelabras. My personal bouquet was stunning with the little diamond accents and I loved the girls bouquets the roses matched their dressed perfectly! Thank you for working with us.”

Best,
Diana and Jimmy

“Words cannot express our gratitude for all that you did to make the Barry & Florence Friedberg JCC’s Purim Ball such an enormous success. It was a glorious evening – attended by more than 300 people – that gave the community the opportunity to support the accomplishments of our wonderful honorees and our JCC.

The beautiful centerpieces that you created and so generously donated transformed the JCC gymnasium into a dazzling ballroom where our guests enjoyed dinner, dancing and entertainment. Your unique artistry provided a conversation piece at every table!

Your expertly crafted centerpieces made this a memorable event. The proceeds of the Purim Ball go directly to support the Friedberg JCC’s quality programs and services that help enhance the lives of thousands of people – friends, neighbors and families. Without you, this evening would never have been so successful!

On behalf of our honorees, members and the entire South Shore community, thank you for your support. Together we build community one member at at time.”

“I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding service on Valentine’s Day of this year. If you remember I am the young, funny and handsome gentleman who came in and needed five sets of flowers; One for My Mom, Sister, Niece, Girl i was dating and her sister. You were not only able to help me figure out exactly what to get everyone but were able to do it all for under $60. All of this amidst chaos, at what I can only imagine is one of the busiest of the years for your store.

Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks and to show you how your hard work has helped make others so happy!”

Sincerely,
James Harvey

“My Canadian stepson and his fiance sent me flowers for Mothers Day, which arrived on the Friday before. The arrangement was the most beautiful I have ever seen. It looked like it had floated out of an Impressionist Painting and it was sitting in a lovely pinkish vase. I enjoyed even more that the whole thing lasted ten days and the last few flowers went a whole two weeks. Absolutely a pleasure! Thank you again for a high quality product!”

Sincerely,
(Mrs.) Carol Pines

“How are you my dear! My apologies for taking so long to get back to you, but we’ve been on our honeymoon up until yesterday and we’re both just getting back into the office. First, I want to thank you and your staff so very much for an UNBELIEVABLE wedding floral service! Mark, there are no words for how beautiful was, from the church aisle decorations to the bridesmaids bouquets! I can’t believe how well my bouquet and the purses came out. When they got delivered to the house, I almost cried! I told ya those purses would be a hit, and they so were. Very unique, very classy, just AWESOME!

You guys deserve all the praise in the world, and I would like to be one of many of your brides to give it to you! Thank you and Anna and all of your staff again for all of your efforts and the beauty that you created for our big day! I’m sure you’re making some other brides just as happy as you have made me! Take Care Mark!

It was a pleasure working with kind and talented people as yourselves. Bari said it best: we felt as if we were part of your family. Thank you all for everything.”

Our Center is a place where medical expertise blends with compassion and care, and we are thankful for your commitment to sharing our mission in such a special way. Our children’s lives are not easy, so the loving embrace of special angels like you is truly appreciated.”
