About Flowers By Mary Beth Bartel
I have been doing floral arrangements for years. Being a gardener, I started arranging fresh flowers over 35 years ago. I took floral arranging classes over the years and in 2004 I graduated from the Floral Design Institute of Portland.
Besides being a florist, I am an RN. I have been a nurse for 35 years. I use every nursing skill I have learned to be a florist. Some of those skills are listening, making you comfortable with your choices, taking care of the flowers (sterility and use of solutions) and communication.
I will listen to what you want your floral package to be. I will help you stay within your budget. I will let you know what flowers are in season and what flowers will not be within your budget. I work from my home which eliminates the overhead cost of a store front. I do pass these savings on to my customers. I enjoy working with people and I understand you want the most for your floral dollars.
I offer a free hour floral consultation. At the time of the meeting I ask that you bring as much of the following information that you have:
1. Floral budget,
2. Flower choices,
4. Style of bouquets and boutonnieres,
5. Names of who the bouquets and boutonnieres go to,
6. Floral arrangements needed (altar arrangements, guest book table, etc.).
I do only package pricing. There is a delivery charge based on the distance to your event. I do require a nonrefundable deposit to hold your wedding date. Every penny of this deposit goes towards your floral package. Two months before your wedding date, I require the remaining balance of your floral package.
Method of Payment: Cash, personal check, MasterCard or VISA.
I take extreme pride in my work and my reputation.
