Beautiful bouquet and fast shipping! The box the bouquet shipped in was perfect for travel to our destination. I enjoyed communicating with the seller. Very responsive and friendly. Great experience! Highly recommend.

I'll start with the good: the communication with the seller was great. I didn't have any problems and she was always quick to reply. Unfortunately that is where the good ends. I purchased this boutonniere from her and when I got it in the mail it was very poorly packaged. There was no proper protection. She used an already used package bag and then when I got it opened she had stuffed the boutonniere into a lavender scented soap box. A soap box! It was squashed,reeking of lavender. I'm sensitive to smells and lavender is one of them. Thankfully I didn't break out in hives like I normally do, but I am very disappointed in this product. The boutonniere looks ok, but doesn't look like what the picture shows & no exactly what I was expecting. I won't be using itfor my wedding, but will be looking for another one from someone else.

I could not have known that the customer for this specially priced $6.50 boutonniere was allergic to fragrance and have apologized. I use recycled packaging for all my shipments and thought the clean little soap carton would protect the boutonniere within a padded envelope and gave the customer instructions on how to reshape it. It's the same one on the photos with the black ribbon she requested, so I'm not sure what her expectations were.
Love Conquers All
Welcome! ♥ I'm Sandra, and my Shop is inspired by the 13 years I lived, worked, and travelled in Europe. The pretty Paris flower stalls, the so-tiny-yet-so-lush British village florist shops, and the blooming fields of France, Germany, and Switzerland remain with me. Always making things beautiful on a budget, I took floral design & interior decorating courses and designed for friends.
Please note that (poly)silk flowers, even "real/natural touch", don't look and feel exactly like fresh flowers, but rather are their own art form developed over many centuries. The global fresh flower industry consumes vital water, emits CO2 when refrigerated during transport, and uses harmful pesticides. Silk flowers are actually more ecological, and they become cherished keepsakes.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
I offer affordable ready-to-ship and mix-and-match silk bouquets and button nosegays, all of whose ribbons can be changed upon request, and I accept custom orders upon my discretion. If ordering bridesmaids' bouquets, the bridal bouquet must be bought as down-payment before work on an order begins. The rest of the order will be described in a second listing, and photos will be sent for final approval. Payment must clear before all items are mailed in one box. Please read my "About" section, as well as Policies and item descriptions; use a ruler or tape measure to check that dimensions are what you had in mind.
Store silk flowers properly to last indefinitely, i.e., never outdoors or in a hot attic where the temperature will slightly melt and "wilt" the flowers. Dust occasionally with a tissue or soft cloth dampened with tap water. Should a flower head fall off in transit, don't panic; just reattach the flower to its stem with Elmer's Glue. If threads have formed at any flower edges, carefully snip with a small scissors to "freshen" their appearance. Always readjust flowers by their stems, not by the flower head. Bouquets are taped and often pieced together; keep together as is after the wedding to place into a ceramic vase. Contact me via Etsy convo with any questions.
Gift wrapping and packaging
If you would like an item gift-wrapped with a small card, let me know your details in the note to seller at checkout or with an Etsy message. Please be advised that I generally use clean recycled and/or recyclable packaging and dissolvable packing peanuts to be environmentally responsible.
