The best florist! Highly recommend!

Melinda is spectacular. She is so professional and helps to create a realistic vision. I came in with basic ideas of what I wanted and a budget, and she basically managed the rest! Melinda was very communicative on the types of florals, how to maximize on the space, and colors to highlight. I am still receiving compliments from our rehearsal dinner and wedding flowers. I could not recommend Festive Designs enough. I am so lucky I got the chance to work with them!

Beautiful flowers

We hired Festive Designs to make the flower arrangements for our wedding at Cass Winery in Paso Robles this year. Melinda did a fantastic job with the flowers - they were stunning. Further, Melinda was very flexible throughout the process. We had to move the wedding several times due to covid, and she was happy to accommodate each move and even rearranged her schedule when we nailed down our chosen date. We would highly recommend Festive Designs! Many thanks.

Beautiful Bouquets and Decor that Brought my Wedding Dreams to Life!

Melinda and her team did the most amazing job with the flowers for our wedding! The bouquets were stunning and the ceremony decor was better than i imagined it would be! I asked for some draping along our aisleway and they made it happen, too! The flowers were so fresh and lush and perfectly coordinated with our color theme. Melinda was very responsive and made communication through the planning process super easy!

Melinda is so talented and has such an artistic eye for design. She has been doing this for longer than I have been alive and her passion for this really shows. We sat down with Melinda to talk about the flowers for our wedding and she was full of knowledge, advice, floral books, recommendations and creative ideas to execute what we were looking for. She has very reasonable prices and does a killer job at putting your vision into a reality. She helped make our wedding beautiful and I am forever grateful for all that she did for us! Thanks again Melinda! We will be back for future events!
