Pennylyn was outstanding to work with. She is very talented and flexible. Her ideas and willingness to meet our budget really helped to make everything easy and I couldn't be happier with the results.

Amazing, Beautiful, Elegant....the list goes on

The flowers were important to me and so was my wallet. I was a particular bride when it came to the quality of the flowers, professionalism, and service. Penny surpassed expectations and her willingness to work with me was such a breath of fresh air. I met with her multiple times and was so detailed about what I pictured, maybe too detailed, but she was extremely patient and listened to everything. She worked with my budget and really stretched each dollar for me. My flowers were beautiful and classic (and they were everywhere)! I even gave her a beautiful engraved wine box and said to be creative and, if she could, to use planted flowers that I could reuse. Again, she surpassed my expectations and I would recommend her to everyone.

Penny is a very nice person and when you speak with her, she seems so passionate and willing to do anything to make the bride happy. I really believed in her passion and thought that my day would be absolutely perfect with her as the florist. She has such a bubbly personality and a contagiously cheerful disposition.

This is why I'm so sad that I have to be writing this review right now. She is so sweet, but she is not a good florist. Personality-wise - she's great; Professional-wise - not so much.

First, two days before my wedding, she called me to let me know that she couldn't provide the candelabras that she promised me. So I had to get them myself. Then she came late to my wedding and did a rushed job decorating the candelabras I bought and even left thorns on my bridesmaids roses. To top it off, my bouquet consisted of about 5 roses when we discussed that it would be a full, luscious bouquet.

There were very few flowers in the reception and the centerpieces fell apart. We paid her $1900 and we didn't get our money's worth at all. On top of that, she still wanted to ask us for more money after the wedding. When I told her that I was unhappy with a few things that she did, she even said that she didn't believe me.

She also has a very bad memory. I had to remind her of things in our contract numerous times, and even though she takes notes at every meeting we had, she didn't look at them often, as she continuously forgot things that she promised us. She responds in a decent amount of time, but she just doesn't pay attention to things that she discusses with her customers.

I just can't believe that things turned out so badly. I expected so much from her, especially because of all her glowing reviews and the fact that she seems to be so passionate about her job. It really seemed like she wanted to do her best for us and make it the best day, but she just took our $1900 and delivered poor service.

Very disappointed for my wedding.

I used Blossom and Bee, specifically Pennylyn, for my flowers for my July 4th wedding. I couldn't be happier! Pennylyn was a pleasure to work with from the beginning, always responding to my questions and giving me great ideas. We collaborated together so well, and her energy and enthusiasm for her craft makes her so enjoyable to work with. She has a great eye for event design. She worked within my budget, and although my budget wasn't too big she gave me everything I wanted and more. I met with other florists prior to choosing Pennylyn and they all just rudely told me that what I wanted and what my budget was didn't match. That wasn't the case with Pennylyn. She's honest and told me that anything could work within my budget, it's just some florists you're paying for the "name" and not for the quality and quantity you should be getting for the money you pay. My centerpieces were beautiful, my bouquet was outstanding and my girls' flowers were gorgeous as well. The boutonnieres were also so unique, and we received a ton of compliments on all the flowers. For my centerpieces I showed Pennylyn a few pictures of what I would like and she put them together so beautifully. My husband even noticed how beautiful and fresh the flowers were. That says a lot. We've been to a bunch of weddings this year and the quality of Pennylyn's flowers significantly outweigh the competition from what we've seen. It's 10 days and my bouquet is finally being thrown out :-( All in all, I would definitely recommend Pennylyn to any bride, whether you have a tight budget or not. Her work ethic, eye for design, love for her craft and personality made her an absolute pleasure to work with. I'll be using her again for other events in the future for sure! Love, Nicole & Joe <3

My husband and I used Blossom and Bee for our wedding. Penny is VERY nice and easy to work with. However, many of the details we discussed leading up to the wedding were completely ignored when it came to the actual day. For example, I had asked for my MOH bouquet to be different from the rest of the bridesmaids bouquets- it ended up being the EXACT same bouquet. Also, I asked for dahlias and spider mums in my bouquet... and I had neither. I also asked for my bouquet to be dark purple and it ended up being light-medium purple. While I will agree that her work did look beautiful I wasn't a fan of the quality. We asked for a "floral headpiece" for the flower girl, she put it on 10 minutes before we walked down the aisle and half of the flowers fell off- they were hot glued to the headband (I was under the impression that they would be wired or something). Also, I gave er brooches to put in my bouquet and 3-4 of them fell off before the ceremony as well because once again they were hot glued to sticks rather than being wired in. She is a nice person and her arrangements do look very pretty. She just does not follow most of your requests and the work does not last very long.

Penny, I didnt respond to your text message because I didnt feel like getting into a pissing match with you. You did NOTHING that you said. You said my bridesmaids would have dark purple hydrangeas, they were white. You said my boquet would have dahlias and spider mums, they did not. You want to blame this on "not being able to get the correct flowers" sure, go ahead. How about the fact that we agreed on doing a special maid of honor boquet? Because my MOH's bouquet looked exactly like the other bridesmaids. I never once said your arrangements didnt look lovely, they did. I was just disappointed that you did not follow any of my requests. Also, the flower girl headband could have been made to last longer, as well as my bouquet- which both fell apart in minutes.

Blossom and Bee responded with the following comments:

This is the first time I have ever been left a less than stellar review and I am truly disappointed by this. I have attempted to contact this bride to discuss the situation and I have gotten no response. I have beautiful images from this event which reflect the "quality" of my work. In fact, I am so proud of the images, they are on my website. I strive to make every couple happy and almost always exceed their expectations. All of our agreed upon details were listed in writing and unfortunately, when dealing with florals, there are times that certain varieties are unavailable or substitutions must be made. This is all spelled out in the contract which is signed by every client. My designers use various methods for adding embellishments which include, wire, tape and glue - this is an industry standard. I truly enjoyed working with this couple and wish them nothing but the best in the future with lots of love and happiness.

Penny has a beautiful eye and touch in her line of work! She truly turned my ideas into what I wanted and made our day that much more beautiful! The quality of her flowers are impeccable and 5 weeks later I'm finally throwing out the last of my centerpieces :(. Penny is great at what she does and was always professional and great to work with! Her follow up is amazing and she accommodates all of your needs. She truly went above and beyond to make our day stress free! I wasn't worried about anything and was completely in awe at the final product. My husband and I recommend Blossom and bee for all of your flower needs :)

Penny provided the most amazing flowers for our wedding. I had many guests tell me that their centerpieces that they got to take home lasted WAY longer than the average flower. My bouquets were outstandingly beautiful, and met all of my expectations. Penny works with your budget, and makes sure you get what you want. I would recommend her services to anyone!

Blossom and Bee. Simply Amazing!! I couldn't have asked for a better florist. Pennylyn is so easy to work with and understands your vision. I told her what I wanted as my bouquet and she made it 100 times better then I had envisioned. Pennylyn put floral touches all over the venue and the centerpieces were perfect. She went above and beyond with the small details and surprised me with a few touches she added.
I'm beyond happy with all the floral arrangements and hard work Blossom and Bee did for our wedding. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a competent and very talented florist!!
