We had centerpieces made by Elizabeth and they were gorgeous. Exactly what we had in mind! She is great to sit down and talk with. She is very willing to show you what to expect so you are both on the same page. She even worked with another lady we had doing some decorating so they could complement each other, and everything flowed together perfectly!
A Flower Magician! Elizabeth, the owner, is wildly friendly and fun! She really made our visions come to life. She was budget conscious and took the time to truly consider what we wanted. I would use her again.
Two Thumbs Up! The Botanical Emporium is a jewel of a flower shop. The arrangements are gorgeous, flowers are fresh, and staff is friendly and very helpful. I come to the shop for gifts and centerpieces. The staff is super creative and always whips up something special and within my budget. All items are amazing and everyone wants to know who did the flowers! Also there is an outstanding selection of orchids and blooming plants in the greenhouse. This is a great shop and definitely worth visiting.
Gorgeous Flowers! Elizabeth spent many hours going over what I envisioned with my flowers and included my ideas of what works well together. I had visited other shops that were not helpful at all and this shop definitely was not that! My bouquet was absolutely perfect as well as all other arrangements made! Exactly what I wanted, with the help of a professional!
My flowers were everything I told them I wanted and more! People are still telling me just how fabulous the centerpieces were. I was so happy with my bouquet that I decided to have it preserved. Elizabeth is a woman with a vision and a plan and the resources to make all your dreams come true.
Exquisite Flowers. I never dreamed my wedding could be so lovely. I wanted wild flowers included in the arrangements on the altars, in the bouquets, and in the centerpieces on the reception tables. Other florists did not understand or could not do it. But Elizabeth and her staff worked wonders. They are imaginative, fine, creative florists whose designs are breathtaking, beautiful. I highly recommend The Botanical Emporium for exquisite elegance.
Just a note to say, "Thank you, Elizabeth," for delivering flowers to my home early Tuesday morning. My wife was still getting over the flu and was feeling down, but she was going to work anyway. You personally delivered the flowers before my wife left for work and talked and laughed with her. You made her feel better and lifted her spirits for the day. As you know, I am in Hong Kong and could not get home. So, I am grateful to you for the extra time you took for my request. As a side note, my family thinks you are wonderful and I do too. Thanks again.
Elizabeth's florist shop was included in our package through the Holiday Inn, and we are very glad she was. Elizabeth's arrangements were heavenly.
We had my mother and brother meet with Elizabeth in our place, since we were going to be out of town until the week before the wedding. The staff were very nice and courteous, and Elizabeth put together exactly what my wife was imagining. It was a beautiful arrangement of roses and candles using candelabras, and it was just perfect. Elizabeth is a true artist, being able to arrange something unique like that. We also got an amazing value out of the package, especially compared to other florist offerings. Elizabeth is great, highly recommended!
Thank you for the beautiful centerpieces. Everyone at the bridal shower just loved them, especially the ones taking them home. We really appreciated your help and advice. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends.
I was at a HS 2011 Graduation last week when I realized I didn't get any flowers for my niece. I called The Botanical Emporium. Melissa asked if I wanted her to put something together for me while I'm driving to the shop. I told her my niece likes white and pink. She asked if I wanted a tint of purple as well and how much. I told her around $30 and she can make it however she wished. When I got there, the flowers were in nice clear plastic because it was raining outside. I'm not really into flowers but...they were so pretty!!! When I gave them to my niece, she and her best friends kept repeating "OMG, this is the prettiest flower wrap they have ever seen!!!" and they are not exaggerating, because Melissa uses flowers I have never even seen before. They were light pink contrasted with white and some tiny purple flowers as well. Not the usual rose or lily. They were all laying flat but one higher than the other so when you hold the bouquet, every flower is showing. She saved my life. Everyone was complimenting the flowers when we got home and at the dinner at my niece's house as well. Thank you so much Melissa! :)
Elizabeth and all the staff were AMAZING!!!! Everyone was raving about the flowers and asking where they came from! Elizabeth went above and beyond to attend to our every need! She was soo accommodating and understanding. Her energy and creativity is incredible!!! She got me soooo excited about flowers!!! She even dealt with the country club when they changed coordinators 10 days before my wedding! This was not her responsibility, but she went above all expectations to ensure we had an amazing event!!! She was a breath of fresh air after interviewing numerous floral shops! I was totally blown away by the flowers!!! Everyone commented on them and were sooo impressed!!! Look no further. The Botanical Emporium is the way to go!!!
Gorgeous Flowers! The Botanical Emporium did all of the flowers for my wedding; the centerpieces, bouquets, and altar arrangements. I couldn't be happier with the end result. Our colors were gray and yellow, and I LOVED my yellow bouquet. I had some difficulty connecting with Elizabeth to begin the planning, but it was well worth the wait!
Thank you so much for the beautiful corsage that you made for me to wear to my boyfriend's prom on Thursday night. That was so kind of you to take your time to make sure it was the prettiest one ever. And thank you so much for the thoughtfulness that was put into it. You're the best!
Elizabeth did a fantastic job in understanding how I wanted my flowers for my bouquet, bridesmaids, centerpieces...etc. She has a very creative eye and pays close attention to detail. I chose her because she had many years of experience at the Carnegie Music Hall Foyer. She worked hard to use flowers within our budget and succeeded in staying within our means. The flowers at the reception set the whole stage for the evening. Everything was gorgeous!
The bride's bouquet of Black Magic roses was stunning as were the other bouquets for the bridesmaids. The rhinestones in the center of each little white flower in all the bouquets added a delicate sparkle. The mothers loved the diamond wristbands for their flowers. And, the centerpieces at the reception were absolutely amazing! Just enough of the feathers and black ting along with the candelabras to make the room what eveyone is now describing as "magical." Our daughter and her new husband couldn't stop smiling. It was like a fabulous dream!
Sunday morning I called The Botanical Emporium from Virginia (saw their website--awesome) to see if they would deliver that day, Sunday. My girl friend was sick in bed with pneumonia, and I wanted to send her flowers. The Botanical Emporium staff were very helpful. First, they made a bouquet of flowers in her College's colors. Then they helped me select a card (Monet's Water Lilies) and delivered the flowers Sunday evening. My girl friend was surprised and tells me the flowers are beautiful and she is feeling better. Thank you The Botanical Emporium. You are the best!
