DO YOU DO WEDDINGS AND EVENTS?
Special occasions are the best! Packages start at $2500 and service area includes the lower Puget Sound. For intimate, on-site events (max 8 guests) at Chateau le Fleur et Vigne, packages start at $250. Please visit the Consultation page to schedule an appointment.
DO YOU HOST WORKSHOPS?
Yes! It's a great way to teach blooming artists the elements and principals of design, while having fun with friends or co-workers in our beautiful Studio and Workshop at the Chateau. Due to social-distancing, we will be offering a live, online series in the meantime, but please stay tuned for dates of future on-location events.
DO YOU ONLY SERVICE OLYMPIA?
All deliveries to McAllister Park residents are complimentary, however, if you are in the Greater Olympia Area (Tumwater, Yelm, Lacey) and elect the Statement floral delivery service, we are happy to deliver at no cost. Pick-up from the studio is always free but deliveries greater than 5 miles incur a $9.95 charge, while 5-20 mi is $19.95. During holidays, delivery is a fixed $20 fee.
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR FLOWERS?
As an advocate for the Slow Flower Movement, stems are sourced from local farmers and/or American-grown, as much as possible. By keeping in-season, arrangements complement the scenery, are always fresh, leave a minimal footprint, and are composted after retrieval - or in some cases, redesigned with new flowers and given as "Circle of Kindness" gifts to those less fortunate.
WHAT IS THE BLOOM-REPLACEMENT GUARANTEE?
All subscription deliveries are backed by a bloom-replacement clause, which means that our flowers are intended to last at least one week - because of how they are procured and prepared - or else they will be replaced, at no cost.
WHAT DOES COMPLIMENTARY VASE RENTAL AND TAKE-AWAY ENTAIL?
Every month that we deliver your new arrangement, a new vase/vessel is provided, while expired pieces are picked up and composted, disinfected and reused. This cuts cost (and keeps your vase inventory in-home to a minimum). However, if you LOVE the vase your arrangement came in and don't want to part with it, email us and we'll include a small purchase charge on your next invoice.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY WEEKLY "THEMES"?
Each week, pieces have a specific focus or color palate, based on the month's theme. For example, January is "Zenuary" and features Ikebana-style pieces (the 600-year-old Japanese art of floral design). February is all above looooove, May is "Bach Flower Remedy Month," and July is particularly special because - if you love lavender - you're in luck! My family has a boutique farm in Olympia (Evergreen Valley Lavender Farm), so weekly arrangements will showcase this very special, colorful, and healing plant.
WHO IS "WE"? HOW BIG IS YOUR STUDIO?
"We" is mostly me - Genevieve, the owner. I procure and design all of the floral, write the articles, newsletters and social material, network with local business, and deliver the majority of our pieces.
