    Wedding Flowers

    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.

    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!
