My husband and I used Carol for our wedding this past Labor Day weekend and were very happy with how everything turned out. With very little thought and planning done on our part before our initial meeting, Carol managed to turn our jumbled mess of thoughts and obvious lack of preparation into a beautifully thought out collection of floral decoration ideas. From the arch design to the centerpieces to the bouquets and boutonnieres, everything looked individually lovely and charming in their own right, but also wonderfully coordinated from a big picture perspective.

With respect to our personal interactions, Carol was also always very prompt in returning emails and phone calls and always did so with a friendly and cheerful spirit. During our two meetings, she was very laidback and made sure to ask about any ideas we had, but also helped guide us towards a final design with a bunch of her own ideas when it was clearly needed. For anyone reading this, there should be no doubt that Carol knows what she's doing when it comes to floral design and that you will be in good hands if you choose to work with her.

After interviewing 4 other florists in the area and being seriously underwhelmed with all of them, Carol was a breath of fresh air. She is AMAZING. Not only is she super friendly and extremely prompt in returning emails and phone calls, she is incredibly talented at what she does and very reasonably priced.

Carol designed the flowers for my wedding this past Memorial Day weekend and I could not have been happier with the result. She listened to what I wanted and was able to enhance it to be more than I ever imagined it could have been. I received tons of compliments on both my bouquet and the arrangements - everyone loved her work. Looking back through my photos, I keep noticing small details of how she tied everything together to create a wonderfully cohesive overall display.

All in all, I LOVED working with Carol and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone who asked.

I found Carol on another website when my fiance talked me out of doing my own flowers. She was amazing because I kept changing my mind about the colors I wanted and what flowers to use. She worked with me on budget and took off the added stress I would have had if I had done the flowers myself. She was so easy to work with and it was great because I was planning the wedding from out of state. She even placed the flowers on the cake for us and it was perfect. I can't say how happy I was with everything she did. She hit the design and look that I wanted perfectly. You'll love working with her, we did.

j had found design with flowers/carol on yelp and am so so glad i went with her. she is awesome! i was originally thinking i could do my own flowers because i wanted to save money but in the end i decided to find someone priced reasonably. save myself some headache and stress

i actually talked to about 4 florists. carol and i just connected. she saw what i saw and had the same vision in mind that i did. when i first went to meet her i loved the diversity in her portfolio. she had also already executed some of the ideas that i had in mind. she was not too technical as some other florists were. she just speaks normal language. another florist i talked to was very opinionated saying that i could use carnations to keep costs down and i should use white paper lanterns so it would photograph better. in the end i found carol easy to work with and easy going. did i mention reasonably priced?

when we went in for some samples i was happy with what she came up with. we delivered some jars we had been collecting for the centerpiece vessels to save some money.

the day of she delivered the flowers on time to our hotel. i loved them. there were corsages for our moms, bouts for the guys, bouquets for the girls and a flower garland for my dog! all of them were perfect in size and quality.

when i got to the venue she was still there setting up! i was in awe of what she had done! the colorful centerpieces looked even better than the samples did. the garland she created for the arbor was just what i had in mind. so beautiful! i wish i could've taken it home. then the aisle. i had wanted gerber daisies fading from red to pink to white and she did just that! i loved it! i was so happy!

i would confidently and gladly recommend carol to anyone! she is just that awesome!

My wedding was on June 29th at the Rengstorff House in Mountain View and a florist was not included in a package with the venue, so I went on Yelp and saw the reviews for Designs with Flowers and took a chance and I am extremely happy I did! I was looking for a florist with creativity, originality, & reasonable pricing... And Carol was a complete package! I met and spoke with Carol on several occasions about my vision, to share photos of inspiration, and she took everything into consideration! I needed my bridal bouquet, toss bouquet, (2) bridesmaid bouquets, many boutonnieres, many corsages, flowers for wedding arch, and flowers for the aisle. On the Day of the wedding, Carol was early to the venue, extremely helpful with giving every one their floral pieces, & patient with set up and all her work came out very classy, elegant, and gorgeous!

If you are looking for a very creative florist whose love for her job reflects in her work, please go visit Carol, it will be one of the best decisions you could have ever made!

Carol, thank you so much for all your beautiful hard work and I can not wait to work with you again in the future!

Carol is absolutely wonderful. She is a very talented artist and very flexible to work with. Carol was patient and thoughtful as we looked through numerous photographs to develop a vision for my wedding. She had fantastic suggestions, impressive knowledge, and wonderful artistic sense. She even put together samples for each piece and adjusted each arrangement according to my comments. I couldn’t have been happier with the final arrangements. I received so many complements on the gorgeous flowers, from my bouquet to the centerpieces. And Carol was a joy to work with. She was thoughtful, flexible, respectful, and truly seemed to love what she does which shines through in the high quality of her work.

I hired Carol at Design with Flowers to be the florist for our September 2011 wedding. She did an excellent job making my vision a reality and I was so pleased with all of the flowers on my wedding day. Carol is truly an artist. She listened very carefully to all of my likes and dislikes and was able to create exactly what I had asked her for, which wasn't an easy task because I am really picky! Not only did she nail my vision but she also was able to work with the smallish budget that I gave her, which really impressed me.

Carol is a very sweet woman and was very flexible and easy to work with. She offered to stay late a few times so that I could meet with her after I got off of work. I collected almost 100 mason jars and smaller bud vases for my centerpieces and Carol let me drop all of them off a few weeks before the wedding and transported all of the vases to my venue on the day of the wedding. My bouquet, the bridesmaids' bouquets and the boutonnieres all turned out perfectly. I keep looking through my wedding photos and admiring how beautiful the flowers are and how closely she matched what I was envisioning. Give her a call!

I did not want to spend a fortune on flowers but wanted something beautiful and professional. I went in with some ideas, and Carol was able to make my ideas into beautiful arrangements (bouquets, boutenieres arbor decorations and cake topper). She was also very flexible and worked with me as I ended up needing more flowers last minute - such as a cake topper. She did a beautiful job and was a lovely person. She came early to the wedding site and stayed until all floral details were in place - all the family commented on how nice she was. If you want someone talented and flexible who will give you personal attention I highly recommend Carol at Design with Flowers.
