    Wild, natural looking arrangements that stole the show

    We were looking for a “wildflower” look for our wedding day which led us to working with Bowerbird Flowers. They went above and beyond my expectations. They came up with the idea for the most beautiful ground arrangement to go under the tree we were married near. It elevated the space while still feeling natural. Everyone at the wedding commented on how beautiful the arrangements were. My bouquet was beautiful and I can’t wait to see how all of the flowers look in our photos. Thank you Diane and Lily for making our day perfect!

    Bowerbird will give you the wedding florals of your dreams!

    If I could give Bowerbird one hundred stars I would - I cannot recommend them enough! They executed this stressed-out, anxious Covid bride's vision to an absolute tee. Diane and Lily were patient, friendly, and extremely professional during all our design meetings. Likewise, they were flexible and understanding when discussing pricing, logistics, or last-minute adjustments. And most importantly, they both have incredibly sharp style, which enabled them to curate the most gorgeous floral arrangements for my rehearsal dinner and wedding. I recommend them without hesitation.

    Breathtaking flowers!

    Bowerbirds did the flowers for our rehearsal dinner and reception. I was blown away by how beautiful and unique the flower arrangements were. The Bowerbirds team was great to work with -- very flexible, dedicated, creative, and attentive. I would definitely recommend!
