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!!

Penny went above and beyond to make our wedding day special. Due to tropical storm Andrea, we had our wedding pictures done a day earlier to beat the storm. Penny called to just check in and see how I was doing. When I told her that I was having pictures that same day, she said, "You will need a bouquet and a boutinerre." She not only dropped them off to our venue, but didn't charge us extra for going out of her way and I am sure adding more work to her already busy day! I highly recommend Penny. She made the most beautiful arrangements and was just so easy to work with for the entire process. We love her!

Penny was such a great person to work with! She took time in our initial appointment to get to know us and our story. We had a tight budget to work with and she was able to work within our budget while providing us with really beautiful centerpieces and bouquets. Penny even added a personal touch by incorporating butterflies into my bouquet, which made it even more special to me. She also checked in with me before the big day to tell me how great my flowers looked.

Our bouquets and centerpieces looked absolutely beautiful on our wedding day. We received many compliments from our guests about the centerpieces. I really loved how beautiful the bouquets turned out and they really add a great pop of color to our photos. It was a pleasure working with Penny and she is the first and only florist I would recommend in the future.

Where do I even begin? Blossom and Bee, and more specifically Pennylnn, is everything and more you are looking for in a florist, ESPECIALLY on your wedding day. Pennylynn’s vision was incredible, and after only our first meeting, she immediately understood the vintage, romantic, Great Gatsby-ish look and feel I was going for. She brainstormed ideas and shared them with me throughout the months leading up to the wedding – her dedication was admirable and above and beyond what I would have expected going into this. I was very upfront with how much I could afford, and Penny worked with my budget and helped me come up with ways to stay within it (i.e. use flowers that our in season, white flowers are typically less expensive, etc.) She made sure that we were able to go to the church and venue together so she could actually see what she would be working with prior to the wedding, and prepare accordingly. And then the day of the wedding, Pennylynn arrived at Park Savoy way ahead of time so everything was set up before cocktail hour! Even being run-down with the flu, Penny pulled off what I (biasedly) think is the most gorgeous floral arrangements I have ever seen and completely set the tone and mood for my wedding. If you want to be surrounded by the best florist, who genuinely is passionate about creating your ceremony and reception into a vision – make sure you book Blossom and Bee.

After going over my vision, Penny took that vision and brought it to life. Penny is not only a florist, but also an artist. The flowers that she created for my wedding were absolutely perfect. Penny worked exactly within our budget, and truly made me feel that our vision was not out of our reach. She helped give us suggestions and ideas that helped piece together the wedding of our dreams.

Our guests raved about the beauty, attention to detail and unique touches to the flowers and decorative flares that Penny brought to our ceremony, bouquets and boutonnieres. Penny will not disappoint. She is detail oriented and worked directly with our reception venue, taking the pressure right off of our shoulders to set up all that we had discussed. It was all a perfect dream. Thank you 100x’s over Penny!!

We needed full event design in addition to flowers. We met with penny and were very impressed with her portfolio and with what she envisioned for our wedding design. The entire process was easy and stress free. She was so accommodating during the planning process and the wedding day itself. Our decor and flowers were AMAZING

What can I say about Pennylyn and Blossom and Bee.... Penny is truly amazing at what she does. I was absolutely amazed at how beautiful our flowers turned out for our wedding. It was very nice to see our flowers at our guests homes looking amazing even a week after the date. Penny more than exceeded every expectation I could have ever hoped for. She is the easiest and most easy going florist you can ever work with and her work in impeccable.

Penny was the most amazing person to work with. Her energy and enthusiastic personality made me even more excited for my day after each of our meetings. Penny was so flexible to work with. I decided to change the set up of our centerpieces two weeks before our wedding. Penny took my new vision and ran with it even under such a short time frame. Our flowers for our wedding were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.We have received rave reviews on our centerpieces from all of our guests. My husband even went back to Penny to have one of my centerpieces recreated as a gift to me.

Pennylyn is the best! She is a pleasure to work with and fun to be around. She is more than a florist; you develop a relationship with her through the planning process. She even became a therapist in some ways (ha!) She listened to what I wanted, added a unique spin and created a beautiful product. She went about and beyond to ensure I was more than happy with everything. She truly cares about her craft and is extremely talented!

I’m not a flower person at all so when the time came to pick my bouquet and my girls’ I knew I needed my mother for this. My mentality was if I can’t eat it or use it again then I don’t want it LOL. The day I met Penny I knew I wanted her to be my florist. She was young, energetic, corky and she was totally just like me. I loved her soooo much I hired her to be my DOC as well. I’m sort of a control freak but I knew I had to designate someone to do all the little details for me on the day of and she completely eased all my worries.

I wanted to do something completely different with the girls’ bouquet so I told her I didn’t want a traditional bouquet for them. We decided we wanted to kind of have them cradle them as opposed to holding them. I gave her complete authority on what kind of flowers to use, I just told her I want her to incorporate my colors (plum-eggplantish and dark teal)…. When her assistant came to drop off my bouquet and the girls’ the day of my wedding I was completely blown away with how beautiful they were. All I could say was “they’re perfect!” – and this coming from the girl who didn’t like flowers haha…. I also requested she make girl crowns for me for my flower girls and those too came out amazing. My flowers were beautiful my only thing would be I would have wanted more colors in it. But that’s my fault since I said I don’t really care what my bouquet looked like. Haha…

Now as my DOC, when I arrived at CB, she was already there setting up. She did an amazing job with everything!!!! All the little details I asked her to do she nailed it! I had an “acknowledgement” table for H and I’s grandparents (some are deceased and some are too old too travel – my granparentals are in California and Philippines) so I asked her to create an acknowledgement table as opposed to memoriam table. I had pictures from the night before that I forgot to frame and she did an awesome job displaying them with very short notice.

All in all my experience with Penny was nothing short of perfection.

Penny & her staff at Blossom and Bee were a pleasure to work with. Penny is a lot of fun, incredibly creative, and willing to work with you time and again to create the perfect design for the wedding. She met with me countless times at her shop and at the wedding venue to review and finalize the details. She oversaw the other vendors in the setting up of the ceremony. We got tons of compliments on the florals she did for the rehearsal dinner, wedding day & brunch. I felt more confident with her there, and appreciate all the work she did for us! We will be shop customers for many years to come!

Penny is GREAT! I had met with several florists and none of them seemed to share my vision until Penny came along. She is so creative and is very passionate about her career. The day of she was on time, the flowers looked even better than I thought they would and they lasted the entire day! Her prices are also very reasonable! I have reccomended her to all of the brides to be I know and would highly reccomend her for your wedding day.

This was a 2nd wedding for both my husband and myself, so we wanted to keep it low-key on a Sunday afternoon. Penny gave us great suggestions for our floral table arrangements and also kept it within our budget. The arrangements far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend Blossom and Bee.

I wanted something different for my wedding. Pennylyn at Blossom and Bee was able to make centerpieces that were a reflection of my taste and personality. My bouquet, the bridesmaids' and the boutonnières were unlike anything else I have ever seen. I went to other florists and they showed me the same flower designs that the others had. Blossom and Bee has a fresh approach, and she listened. Pennylyn gave me a breakdown of everything and there were no hidden costs and no last minute surprises. I had a very large wedding and Blossom and Bee was able to work within my budget. It was an excellent experience and Blossom and Bee made my wedding day unbelievable!
