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!!

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.
