Orders to Canada and the US over $150 before shipping costs will include a complimentary shipment tracking Number.
Orders to anywhere else will not include a tracking number. It is very expensive. Contact me if you really want to know the price.

I Convo all buyers (usually within 24 hours) upon receipt of payment to say hello(!) and address any notes they have left me in "Message To Seller".

Customs officers may open parcels for insepction. They mean no harm, so don't be alarmed! But for this reason, our packaging is simple and sturdy, not fancily gift-wrapped.

Very, very rarely do packages get lost. We have shipped hundreds and have had it happen once, and in the end, the post office fixes these errors after a long delay! In the event that it does occur, we will do everything we can with the post office to help you. Also, please remember to provide the correct shipping address! Reimbursement or replacement of lost packages and undeliverable orders to wrong addresses provided by the customer cannot be given at this time. Contact us if you believe your parcel was lost.

Refunds and Exchanges

Much of what is sold here is made-to-order/custom-made, and used only in special occasions. Like so many sellers whose products are of this nature (e.g. special events and weddings!), I generally cannot give refunds or exchanges. Deposits, partial payments, sample orders are also not refundable, because this money would go towards the purchase of materials that are bought specifically for your needs. HOWEVER, each situation is considered individually with the primary intent of wanting to make you happy. If ever there is a problem, please contact me and let's work something out! I will do everything within my power to set things right.

Please ask me lots of questions before ordering! Thank you for your understanding!

SIZES: all dimensions provided are approximate due to the handmade nature of these products.

COLOR - ON SCREEN VS. ACTUAL COLOR: computer monitors commonly show colors that are slightly different from the actual item, so if you are very concerned about color, I strongly encourage you to order one first as a sample.

FEATHERS AND FLOWERS: every effort will be made to create items that match the picture, but materials often have natural variations, therefore please understand that items may look slightly different in each case. The overall look will not be affected.

COLOR NAMES AND ITEM DESCRIPTIONS: colour descriptions and colour names can be very subjective. This means that although there is a clear distinction between colours such as "green" and "red", the difference between "turquoise" versus "teal" and "magenta" versus "fuchsia" is highly subjective (just to name a few examples). My "magenta" may be very different from your "magenta", and so on. Again, if you are very concerned about colour, Convo me for a sample for a small fee.

Additional Policies and FAQs


- For quoted prices of more than $100, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required before design work begins; for quoted prices of less than $100, full payment must be made upfront.

- All quoted prices include 4 REVISIONS. When a buyer receives a set of pictures for the custom design, and replies to me with requests to modify the design, this counts as ONE revision. So in total, this process can be repeated up to 4 times. After this, each additional revision is 25% of the item cost, or you will receive a full refund to terminate the order.

- for bouquets, boutonnieres, and pin corsages, the stem will NOT be ribbon-wrapped until the design has been finalized. Once the ribbon wrap is placed on, no more changes can be made.
