Excellent Service/Beautiful Flowers
Emma handcrafted the most beautiful, understated bouquets for our wedding. They were everything I asked for, and more. It was effortless working with her...she responded quickly and had excellent suggestions. I would choose her hands-down over anyone else!Sent on 05/27/2019

First Blush does gorgeous work! Our bouquets, centerpieces, and ceremony arrangements were breathtaking, and we got lots of compliments on them. Emma is easy to work with and has great ideas for special touches. Our flowers gave us a storybook wedding. I highly recommend First Blush for any event.Sent on 06/06/2019

First Blush made our rained out rehearsal dinner into a smash success!
Emma made our rehearsal dinner flowers possible! We were overwhelmed by a bulk floral order we made from a local farmer, and she helped transform them into something beautiful. Especially when torrential thunderstorms forced us to squish our outdoor event for 100 into our home at the last minute! Her arrangements made our event feel inviting and intentional rather than crazed and haphazard. Emma's florals turned our dusty garage into a fun, casual party venue - thank you for all your help!Sent on 12/17/2018
