Working with Arlene and her staff was a pleasure. I was planning my daughter's wedding. My daughter sent me with inspirations photos for flowers and centerpieces. Arlene was able to look at the photos and design her bouquet and centerpieces. Arlene designed the ceremony arbor and decorations. The ceremony looked beautiful. The reception hall was glowing. My daughter wanted candle centerpieces and Arlene design the most beautiful centerpieces. My daughter and son in law were blown away by the beauty. The guests raved about the tables. Arlene even rents Chivari chairs. One stop shopping. I will use Arlene every time!!!

No need to look elsewhere. Arlene goes beyond of what she can do. I can't explain how gorgeous my flowers were. It looked like I spent over $10K in flowers.

Arlene and her team are AMAZING!! They are so talented at what they do. You can tell that this is their passion and it shows through in their work. I had my ceremony and reception in the same venue at The Vault of Tampa so I had no idea what the ceremony or reception was going to look like. I was blown away when I was finally able to see it. I was speechless and I could not have picked a single thing to change. Everything was flawless!! Inhad and still have so many people that rave about the flowers and the decorations. She and her team are amazing. They do what is the most beneficial to your budget. I walked in there with no set budget and she still did nothing to over charge me or hide any costs. They were upfront and so easy to work with. I recommend her to every single one of my friends who are getting married soon. Loved everything about my wedding. Can't thank her or her team enough.

Arlene Floral did our decorations and flowers for our special day with thorough details. Flowers were all that I dreamed about and more. The decorations were of high standard, just simply glamorous, simple but sophisticated at the same time. We loved it and the guests did too. And to top it off the surprise you made for us (the gazebo) and that's when we cried when we saw it; Very chic!!! Thank you for an outstanding service Arlene!

All I can say is WOW! Two weeks after my wedding, I still have people complimenting on how beautiful my ceremony and reception was. I had a family member that asked if I spent a million dollars on everything; Arlene is very helpful and very skilled at what she does. Everything was beautiful! My bouquet was so beautiful with little diamonds (fake but beautiful) in the center of each rose! Arlene was very patient with us especially when we made last minute changes! I highly recommend her! You won't be disappointed!

There was one word to describe Arlene and her staff's work: STUNNING! I sat with Arlene early on in the planning process and I gave some ideas of what I wanted as far as colors and flowers but she did the rest and it turned out better than I could have even imagined. Every table had a little something different and the bouquets were perfect. We sprung for her to do the draping and it was absolutely beautiful and transformed the room. I was VERY pleased with the work Arlene did. She made my wedding more beautiful than I could of ever hoped for. Thank you Arlene and her amazing staff!

Where do I begin? I just got married at the Rusty Pelican this passed Saturday & I have to say that I was speechless when I saw how beautiful my bouquets, ceremony & reception centerpieces were! I wasn't sure what to expect, since I had picked everything out so long ago. But I must say I am still shocked at how amazing everything looked. Arlene totally mastered my vision for everything & I can't thank her enough! The reception ceiling draping as well was beyond gorgeous. I have not stopped receiving complements as to how beautiful everything was. Thank you so much Arlene you truly are the best!!

The flowers looked gorgeous on our wedding day. The centerpieces were better than I had imagined. Arlene also included quite a few items for free with our wedding package and did a wonderful job with not only the flowers, but with the draping that we had at our reception. She was very flexible and changed an order for me close to last minute. Thank you!

I cannot get over how amazing this woman was! My husband and I, family, friends and guests could not get over how amazing her draping and centerpieces were. If you are looking for a florist ARLENE is it. She is HONEST, fair, sweet and professional. I cannot say enough about how great she was. She was quick to get back to me with any inquiries I had. Although she is a little far out there (I am in Lakeland) her services were well worth it, I would of paid more of a delivery fee with a local vendor and wouldn't be getting everything that I wanted. Arlene worked with us and made our vision come to life. I recommend her to any bride out there looking for someone to make a wedding dream come true.....ALSO, Arlene does more than just flowers...she does linens, chargers, etc. She can truly take care of everything that your tables will need! My girls loved their bouquets and my cascading orchid bouquet was beautiful as well. The boutonnieres were gorgeous, the flowers on the cake were spectacular, the centerpieces breathtaking, the draping and the chandelier to die for.....OVERALL the quality and attention to detail could not have been better. Arlene we love you and will miss your sweet self and Maria too!

My husband and I went with Arlene Floral Designer after having met with another florist in South Tampa. In comparison to the dismal experience we had in South Tampa, Arlene was very professional and had a beautiful portfolio of work to share with us. She is also a vendor for our venue, the Rusty Pelican Tampa, FL. Being green to the bridal woes, she walked me through every step of the floral choosing process. We booked her pretty early in our wedding planning and she was so patient with me while I changed my mind at least 100 times in the year and a half prior to our nuptial date on November 3rd, 2013. She offered suggestions and gave plenty of options which eventually led to a beautifully decorated ceremony and reception, and she takes care of all the set up and clean up which makes a huge difference on the big day. Using Arlene Floral Designer made my day that much smoother knowing I had a quality, professional team on my side!

Arlene Floral Designer was amazing to work with! She was so nice and seemed genuinely interested in my wedding day. Her work is beautiful...the bouquets and table decorations turned out perfect. The draping also made the room look amazing and the guests were so impressed. She listens to every detail and gives her opinions to help make your day perfect. On the day of the wedding everything was taken care. One thing was wrong with our order but her team fixed it so quickly I did not even see the issue. I made a lot of changes along the way and she was always accommodating and very organized to keep up with all the changes.

Arlene Floral Designer was amazing to work with! She was so nice and seemed genuinely interested in my wedding day. Her work is beautiful...the bouquets and table decorations turned out perfect. The draping also made the room look amazing and the guests were so impressed. She listens to every detail and gives her opinions to help make your day perfect. On the day of the wedding everything was taken care. One thing was wrong with our order but her team fixed it so quickly I did not even see the issue. I made a lot of changes along the way and she was always accommodating and very organized to keep up with all the changes. Her prices were very reasonable, especially for the quality of work she does. I was very happy with her work and would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding in the area. Read less

I can't say anything negative about this company! I booked early, and I had plenty of time to decide what I wanted for my big day. Communication was always open, and someone was able to answer my questions. On the day of, AFD came to our hotel and gave us our flowers, then went to the venue to set up centerpieces, linens, and flowers for the men. I noticed the ribbon on my bouquets were wrong, and Arlene herself came to fix them promptly! I am so happy my wedding coordinator referred this company, because I was thrilled with the outcome!

Arlene provided all the floral arrangements, bouquets, and corsages for our wedding. I presented her with my ideas and she brought them ALL to life. She is extremely sweet and easy to work with. I really appreciated how she took my ideas into consideration and really strived to stick within my budget without sacrificing the original idea. I was extremely grateful for her professionalism and suggestions; she recommended and provided a memorial candle to display at the reception in honor of my grandparents. It is this type of personal, compassionate service and attention to detail that sets her apart. The center pieces paired with the amazing ceiling draping that she created, really made our reception space magical and romantic.

Arlene did an absolute BEAUTIFUL job of our flowers and were so flexible throughout the wedding process. I changed my mind a few times and Arlene had no problem working with me to help create the arrangements and bouquets that I loved. The day of the wedding I didn't like the flower girl arrangement and they created a brand new bouquet on the spot for her!! My guests were blown away with how beautiful the entire venue looked from flowers, chairs, table cloths, candles and the entire church. I would definitely recommend Arlene and her team!

I was super happy with Arlene and her staff. Everyone is super personable and easy to work with. They went above and beyond to work with my limited budget to make my wedding day more than I could have asked for. The only one little thing I was expecting was some crystals to be hanging from the drapes and there weren't any, but it still looked great! The flowers were gorgeous and I'm still enjoying the flowers almost a week later! I would highly recommend Arlene to anyone else needing a florist! I will be sure to use her for my own future events.

Arlene did an amazing job the day of, everything turned out exactly like I wanted. It was perfect. Leading up to it though, it was a little hectic... we went in 3-4 times and every time we had to go over the details of the wedding because she had misplaced the paperwork or changed the system. That was a little frustrating but on the day of the wedding, everything was exactly how we wanted.

She will work with you on the price of your flowers and still get you what you want, which is very hard to do. Other florists have minimums for certain times of the year, Arlene does not! Her flowers are beautiful, decorations, center pieces, everything she designs and displays is stunning!

I left our lenthy meeting with all of my answers to all of my questions! She is so attentive, and wants your event to be even more spectacular than you do!! :-) She takes such pride in her work!! She asks many questions to make sure and get all the details exact!! Her work was incredible!! She was the kindest of all of our vendors!! She is the BEST to work with!! I was delighted with her from the moment I met her!! At first I thought she was going to be one of the many florists I talked to until I met the right one! But, when I talked to her and realized of her beautiful work, we stopped looking for florists and moved on to our next vendor!! She is spectacular to work with.....You will not be disappointed!! Both my daughter and I are very creative and artsy, so I was concerned no one could match our high standards!! Arlene did all of that!! My daughters special day was made so much for spectacular by Arlene and her wonderful team she works with!! I thank Arlene, and have given her name out to many of my employees as she was our very BEST vendor we hired!! You will not be sorry!! She makes your venue come to life!! :-)

Arlene was the perfect florist and decorator for our wedding at the Rusty Pelican in Tampa. She made everything beautiful, full of colour and elegant. She is such a sweet heart when you meet her, making you feel comfortable and also if you are a bride who isn't always sure of your choices she also is good at pointing out what will go together nicely.

So happy we went with her!

When I went to see Arlene in person at her showroom, I was excited as soon as we started talking! She is such a beautiful person to work with because she is always smiling and showing her excitement towards me (the bride) and the wedding! She did her very best to work with our budget and came up with ideas to bring down the price if it was too high. Her designs were just BEAUTIFUL as well! I am very pleased with all of her work especially my bouquet, which is in the process of being preserved. She also allowed me to put some left over lace that came from my veil onto my bouquet as well as a special trinket that belonged to my husband's mother onto his boutonniere (HE LOVED IT). If your considering going with Arlene, go into her showroom and speak to her to get all the details!

I cannot stress enough thanks to Arlene and team for the amazing job that they did at my wedding. My bouquet, all the florals, and the AMAZING ceiling draping was second to none. From start to finish, Arlene handled everything, meeting my every need and also allowing me to bring in my own items for her to set up, due to budget cuts. The day went flawlessly and I have only heard amazing things about our centerpieces, bouquets, and the way the room looked. She will work with your every need, and she will ensure you are happy. Things I didn't even pay for or think of were included, and two days before my wedding, she asked if I would like the new ceiling draping which was more then double what I paid for, but a wedding the night before was having it. Well of course, I know it was less work for her team, but in this industry, we know that many florists/decorators would have opted to remove it and only give you what you pay for. I went to another florist who wanted to charge me for every votive candle and every item they put out. With Arlene, it was not that way. She works so hard to handle every request, and has awesome ideas for everything. She works from her house, so there is no overhanging costs, such as those fancy florist rooms, and I can ensure that every wedding, Arlene treats as her own. I cannot thank her and her team enough for everything they did. If you are looking for a great florist/decor person, on a budget, and with great ideas, call Arlene. She will not disappoint!

Arlene did an absolutely amazing job providing us breathtaking flowers at an affordable price. She was very flexible allowing me to add flowers to my order 2 days before the wedding. She provided wonderful service the day of the wedding delivering flowers to the hotel, then travelling to the venue to deliver boutoniers and corsages to the groom's side who were not at the hotel. She waited for a while for some people to arrive so she could pin their flowers on. She was beyond friendly and wonderful, my groom commented that she went way above and beyond and was just amazing.

When it comes down to it, the flowers on my wedding day were lovely. No one outside of myself and my husband would know anything different. However, the flowers were NOT executed the same way that we wrote up in the contract. There were many factors that were as intended, but there were several items that simply were not done the way we agreed upon. We did also contract Arlene to do the ceiling draping and that made the room. It was absolutely gorgeous. I would say if you are very particular about every detail being executed the way you envision, you might want to keep looking.

At first I thought her rates were a little pricey, but for what you get, it's worth it. My bouquet was stunning! I am so sad it cannot last forever! She arrived right on time at the church with all of our bouquets and instructed us on exactly what to do with them once we arrived to the reception. Se also set them up beautifully so the photographer could take pictures of them upon arrival. They looked amazing.

We also enlisted her services to set up and drop off centerpieces we had made ourselves. I'm so glad we did that because it saved us the hassle and she did exactly what we had requested and we were able to pick them up from her a week later boxed and still arranged just as we had provided them to her.

I would definitely recommend Arlene for what you get and working with her is a pleasure!

Arlene is the sweetest lady ever. She was willing to work around my budget. But when you walked into the Church and the Reception site you would think "what budget?!" She made it look like I had no budget. She was simply incredible, knows what she is doing and the best thing about her is that she is just always so excited about her work and what she is doing for your wedding. It gets you all excited again.
She is a busy lady so it was a bit tough to get through to her a couple of times, but she would get back to me as soon as she could.
She is awesome and if you are booking at the Rusty Pelican and want your reception/wedding to the best it can be- hire her. She also does the ceiling draping that no one else can do. That made the room look beautiful and was definitely worth the extra money for that.

Arlene did a fabulous job with my wedding. The reception took my breath away. She did gorgeous draping on the ceiling of my reception and beautiful draping for the sweetheart table.She did a great job working within my budget and is super flexible (I made lots of changes and additions). Arlene is a little slow to respond to e-mails but I'm sure she gets a lot. One minor arrangement was missing from my ceremony but there were things I wasn't expecting at the reception, so it all evens out. I definitely recommend her.

Arlene did our flowers, lighting, & ceiling draping for our wedding. The venue looked beautiful. However, I was disappointed that our bouquets were not the colors I wanted or what we agreed upon. It was a lot of money to not get what you asked for. The flowers were to be hot pink roses, purple tulips, and green hydrangeas. There were no hot pink roses or green hydrangeas, but some other dull colored flowers that didn't go with the color theme of the wedding. If you use this vendor, be very specific so there's no room for substitutions.

It is difficult to express how happy I am that we chose Arlene for our July wedding. The service she provided was above and beyond my expectations. From the very first meeting with her, she understood exactly what I wanted. We were in very close contact the week before the wedding to finalize every detail and she did not miss a beat. She delivered my bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets to the hotel where we were getting ready. There were so pretty that I cried! When I saw the reception room for the first time, I could not believe how beautiful the centerpieces and all other details that Arlene provided looked! She also added draping and lights to the ceiling, which I highly recommend! Arlene, thank you so much for the high quality service and reliability you provided. You literally made my wedding dreams come true!

For some reason, I had a hard time deciding on which florist to book for my wedding. I’m so happy I chose Arlene. She does WONDERFUL work. Besides the fact that she has the sweetest personality, she listened to everything I wanted and did everything she could to make sure I was happy. In addition to the flowers, Arlene also did the ceiling draping in the reception. I’ll never forget the moment I walked into the ballroom and saw the décor…. It literally took my breath away. The draping, the centerpieces, the cake table…. Everything was just perfect. The guests did not stop talking about how beautiful the room looked. She really took my vision and made it a reality. You won’t be disappointed with Arlene. Oh and if you’re able to…. I highly suggest the ceiling draping!! Totally worth it!!

Thank you for everything Arlene!

AMAZING WORK!!!! Arlene is a true pleasure to work with because of her professionalism and outgoing personality, she is just a true sweetheart and has a ton of electrifying positive energy. My husband and I went into our appointment and told her the colors and theme we were going for and she made our vision come true. She went up and beyond and everyone was saying how it was the most beautiful Wedding they have ever seen. We had back draping to our head table, chargers, special linens, menu cards, beautiful huge cascading centerpieces, candles and so on. She can do it all and make life so much easier!! I would HIGHLY recommend Arlene and her staff to anyone. You will be VERY pleased if you hire Arlene!!

We loved working with Arlene! She had multiple meetings with us which really helped us narrow down our vision and get exactly what we wanted. She has everything, so we ended up getting our linens from her as well (which I would recommend, because she has a lot to choose from). She has a show room where she will set up a table so you can see how the tables will look the day of the wedding. She is so sweet and you can tell that she just loves her job. The day of the wedding, everything was set up and looked absolutely perfect, and I didn't have to worry about anything!

The sweetheart and cake table looked very elegant. She was able to work around our budget. She decorated the garden and terrace area on our venue and everything looked stunning. When I first walked in the reception area my first word was WOW. I wanted to cry I was soooo amazed with everything I was seeing, it was unreal. Like I told you before Arlene may God bless does hands of yours! I would definitely recommend you in a heart bit!

From the moment I met Arlene and saw her work, I knew I wanted to use her for my wedding. She is truly an amazing woman and excellent at what she does. I went and met with her with a vision, that I wasn't sure how to achieve. When I left my consultation with her, I knew she was going to bring that vision to life. Her mind is just filled with ideas and will truly listen to your requests and vision and make it come to life. Throughout the entire planning process, she always got back to me very quickly and was always willing to help me with any concerns that I had. She provided all of my decor for me from the flowers, to the chiavari chairs, the charger plates, linens, centerpieces and more. I was blown away when I saw the ceremony decor and reception room for the first time. It brought tears to my eyes because she took my vision and made it reality. It was everything that I wanted and more. My bouquet and all of the flowers were just perfect. Everyone kept commenting on the room and kept telling me they had never seen a more beautiful room. I know that Arlene truly has a gift and is definitely the best in the area for wedding flowers and decor!! I loved every minute of working with her and would definitely recommend her to anyone getting married in the future!

She personally delivered our flowers to the hotel in the pouring rain and made sure that we had everything we needed. My bouquet was absolutely gorgeous. The floral arrangements at the venue were stunning. When I saw the ceremony space, I was in awe because she took care of every detail. There were even floral arrangements in places I didn’t even think about. Our sweetheart table was beautifully decorated. To this day, people are still asking about the flowers at my wedding. Arlene went above and beyond to make my day so special. She even stayed until the end of the night. Thanks for everything Arlene!

Prefect!! The wedding set up was exteremly important to me. As a wedding professional the look of my day was most important. I wanted elegance, romance, and a beautiful display of our love. Arlene really captured that for me. I did not get a chance to see the setup prior to the ceremony because of the rain so the first opportunity I had was walking down the Isle. When I say the red rose column I thought the ceremony set up far exceeded my expectations. For the reception I was florred all the drapping, flowers, and candle light really brought the sense of romance I was looking for. Arlene and staff were a joy to work with. They are very professional, prompt, and creative. I would recommend her service to anyone who is looking for the "perfect" look. Arlene has many ideas are fantastic and affordable. Thank you Arlene for making my big day special.

My wedding was in September 2011, and I have to say that because of Arlene, my wedding looked beyond what my expectations were! I have read the other reviews and I was nodding and smiling thinking the exact same things, however one commented that Arlene's responsiveness was a little lacking- Arlene was completely prompt in returning any an all of my calls/emails, and very patient with me since I changed my colors a few times!! The flowers- perfect and A LOT and HIGH QUIALITY for the money! (I checked around, some florists will use lesser cheaper flowers) The decor, amazing and EVERY other vendor charges more for what she incorporates- I have gotten higher quotes for the exact same thing. My wedding was at The Rusty Pelican in the Grand Ballroom and the drape effect she does on the ceiling with the soft backlighting was stunning- again, her lighting was cheaper than going with what your DJ offers.. ARLENE YOU MADE MY DAY! She is so very kind and agreeable, just a joy to work with. I would recommend her hands down, you don't even need to look any further. Only down side, if you live in Tampa, the drive may be far to visit her shop, but who cares? :) Of All of the vendors I dealt with, I remember her the most fondly. I will write all glowing reviews on the other sites too, I was that pleased!

Arlene was absolutely fantastic. I recently was married in Tampa, FL at the Rusty Pelican. I have always loved the look of chinese laterns and went on a search to find them at a relatively inexpensive price. Not only did Arlene give me a way-to-good-to-be-true, affordable price, but the room was stunning. I couldn't believe that 12 large, white laterns would have such a huge effect on the look of the room. Everytime my groom and I took a minute to look around, we were truly stunned at the atmosphere! All of my friends who attended and are engaged to be married are now looking at hiring Arlene. I would recommend her over and over again for making my day absolutely wonderful!!

ARLENE!! I have no words to express how amazing she is! She truly made my dream wedding a reality!! She is truly a master of her work ! The hall we had our reception at had everyone very skepitcal but when everyone walked in all you heard were "gasps' It looked like as if we were on a episode of TLC.! She took EVERY word and thought in my head and brought it to life! She is incrediable and the only thing I regret is not being able to work with her any longer..she is such a sweet and kind person to work with. If you want to trust someone to bring your wedding to life..ARLENE is by far the ONLY one you should consider!

“Absolutely stunning” are the words that describe the work done by Arlene! The flowers were better than I imagined and the set up she did was exactly how I envisioned it. My wedding was all that I wished for and more! What is even better is that Arlene is incredibly easy to work with and really seemed to care about our event. I 100% recommend her to all brides!

Arlene out-did herself on the floral arrangement for the ceremony. They were beautiful and looked twice as expensive.

Arlene was the best!! She did everything to make our wedding be just the way we wanted it and everything turned out twice as beautiful as I had imagined.

We were so thankful for her and I have already recommended her to a few of my friends. If you are wanting someone to care about your special day and do whatever it takes to make that happen.....then call Arlene.
