Highly Recommend Floral Notes
Maureen was wonderful to work with for my son's wedding. She added several suggestions that helped make the small group wedding special. Her designs are creative and festive. She got to know the bride and groom in just one meeting - their style was captured perfectly. Maureen added seeded eucalyptus to the arrangements which is common in Australia. The bride's father is from Australia and was thrilled with the addition. We would highly recommend Maureen and Floral Notes.

Maureen's work is BEAUTIFUL! I requested a very simple rustic floral arrangement for all aspects of the wedding and Maureen more than delivered! She is very creative, had attention to detail and her work is stunning. On the business side, she is very responsive, I never was worried about anything with Maureen!Sent on 05/30/2019

Magical florals from a wonderful professional
If you’re looking for someone with endless creativity and beautiful floral designs, Maureen is your lady! After having our first meeting with her, my mom and I immediately noticed her passion for arrangements – a passion that translates so well into a final product and overall vision. We gave her a color scheme and a few preferences but let her choose the types of flowers and greenery and we’re so glad we did. Everytime I look at my bouquet and centerpieces, I have to smile.
In addition to creating amazing florals, Maureen was incredibly easy to work with as our plans changed due to the pandemic. She was consistently willing to provide guidance and input as we switched to a much smaller backyard wedding, making all kinds of accommodations to assist us. I’m so grateful for Maureen’s professionalism and creative eye. She really made our day feel so magical and special.
