Alex will make your wedding floral dreams come true, and on a reasonable budget, too. She has really great taste and her shop is simple/modern stylistically, so if you are looking for less traditional arrangements like I was, it's the place to be. She'll help you find your "vision". I have to say, receiving my bouquet and hair flowers from Alex was probably one of the best moments of my wedding day!

More importantly, Alex has an attitude you won't find elsewhere. She brainstormed with me and bore with me as I went through idea after idea, and sent picture after picture. She's flexible and totally easy-going. Decide you need a few extra arrangements around the room a few weeks before? Or a boutonniere for the groom the week before the wedding? She'll make it work. The thing I like most about Alex is her integrity. She might suggest buying a certain vase or such from her shop, but she won't pressure you into it. If you want to provide your own, that's fine. It really impressed me how the flowers were 1st priority with her, and she didn't try to sell me lots of other stuff like other florists tend to do. Oh, and she put everything together on my tables so quickly and efficiently on the day of the wedding - it was impressive!

I can't recommend Petals & Roots enough!

A true hidden gem! Felt warm and welcome the minute we walked through the door. We recently got married and this was our first and last stop. The shop owner, Alex spent a great deal of time with us to figure out exactly what we were looking for. When we came back to see a sample, she had taken our ideas and improved on them tenfold. Throughout our wedding planning, Alex was responsive, patient, and understanding. Really a great experience start to finish. Highly recommend!

Alex and her husband, Pete, are the best! We had an impromptu first-meeting with Alex and she immediately understood the vision I was going for. When we showed up the next week, she had a sample centerpiece ready for us and it was spot-on! She offered help and advice on other decor my husband and I were working on, and you can just feel her enthusiasm and love for what she does. When we arrived at our venue, everything was perfect! Their prices are totally reasonable too. Alex is so sweet - you feel like she's your friend, not just your florist. She even stayed to watch me walk down the aisle :) Can't wait to have another excuse to order flowers from Petals & Roots!

I had a great experience with Petals & Roots. Their shop is very inviting, featuring seasonal floral arrangements throughout the shop and the decor is clean, modern, and professional.

I had no clue what direction I wanted to go with, but Alex helped guide me from square 1, taking the time to listen to my ideas and offer her expertise. She then transformed our vision into amazing sample centerpieces to ensure we would receive exactly what we wanted.
Alex was always available for questions and was a pleasure to work with, I never felt pressured and she stayed conscious of our budget.

The bridal bouquets, centerpieces, candle arrangements and alter pieces turned out even more beautiful than I envisioned!

Petals & Roots provided the flowers for my wedding this past summer. I truly believe they were the best possible choice for my wedding. I've never been the type of girl who got excited about flowers. Before I walked in the door, I had no idea what I wanted or even if I really wanted flowers at all. However, Alex is just SO genuinely enthusiastic about what she does, that I caught on to that excitement as well.

She put together samples for us and they were beautiful. She made little tweaks with us when we went to the shop to see them. I had confidence that no matter what she did with the flowers, they would be beautiful. And I was right. On our wedding day Alex showed up on time with everything. My bouquet was gorgeous, and everything I never knew I wanted. My bridesmaids loved their bouquets as well. The centerpieces were just like the samples, and guests said how much they brightened up the room. I was happy to have my guests take home to centerpieces after the event so that Alex's hard work could pay off longer.

If you're looking for a florist who will do an awesome job and make your life easier during such a busy time, check out Petals & Roots. I would most definitely do it all again!

I have to start by saying that in planning my wedding, flowers were not initially a top priority. I went with someone local, showed them some pictures, and called it a day. Our wedding was originally planned for November 2012, but we had to postpone because of complications from Sandy. When we re-planned out wedding for June 2013, I found out our original florist was unavailable.

Since we had originally planned the wedding, Alex and Peter had opened up Petals & Roots in our beloved neighborhood of Astoria. I had walked past their shop and seen it featured in the Boro magazine, so with only a few short months to the wedding, I stopped in to see if they were available for my date. From that first meeting, Alex was incredibly engaged and helpful. Throughout the whole process, she listened to my thoughts, took note of what I liked and gave excellent suggestions, and worked with my budget. She created a gorgeous sample centerpiece to make sure we would be happy with the final results and carefully went over day-of details with me. She was so amazingly creative, incorporating succulents (which I am obsessed with) into the pieces and complementing our color scheme. I learned so much just from sitting in the shop and Alex showing me the latest things she had picked up from the flower market. I am actually interested in flowers now!

Even though it wasn't ideal for our wedding to be postponed and to have to search for a new florist, everything really ended up for the best. Alex and Peter provided such attentive, but laid-back, no-pressure service, and amazing final results that we got so many compliments on. I just couldn't have been happier with everything, from the bouquets and boutonnieres to the altar arrangements in the church and reception centerpieces - and with a wedding party of 20 and a reception with over 200, we certainly gave them plenty to do!

Alex is amazing. She and her team are very creative, flexible and kind. She was always friendly and warm when I frequently stopped in to discuss my wedding and all of the details- even non floral discussions were met warmly. She recommended other vendors too when I was in need like my amazing make up artist. She saved the day on that one.
The day of the wedding all of my guests were blown away and the amount of compliments I received on the centerpieces and bouquets were so wonderful. The centerpieces were elegant and stunning and you could tell each one was made with love and lots of time and detail.
They were beyond my wildest dreams and Alex is one of a kind.
I interviewed numerous florists and she was hands down the absolute best.
She is an absolute professional and was flexible within my budget. She and her husband work as a perfect team. I will always use Petals and Roots for any floral arrangement for gifts, my own home or another special event.

Petals & Roots did an incredible job with the wedding we worked together on. From the centerpieces to the bouquets to the breathtaking topiaries that created the altar at our outdoor ceremony, each piece was dramatic, fresh, and exactly what we wanted. Alex made herself available to me (the planner) for decor consults, even adding her creativity and vision to the linens, etc, when asked for her opinions. It was a very modern, preppy wedding, and the choice of vessels and 'ingredients' were all pitch-perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

So many things take place the day of your wedding...and like anything you look back and say, "maybe I shouldn't have worn hot pink shoes, hired trapeze artists, put Aunt Margy next to Aunt Lin." But there's one piece of my wedding I know I will always look back on and say, "it was perfect!"
Those were my unbelievably beautiful flowers. People still talk about how decadent, elegant, and stunningly breathtaking they were. I could not have imagined more beautiful flowers. Petals & Roots delivered beauty and so much more!
