    Fantastic Food and Flowers!

    So wonderful! Whim did our florals and catering for my Bridesmaids Luncheon. They were so easy to work with and customized everything to fit our tropical theme. The floral centerpieces were gorgeous with palm leaves and pops of floral! They created a tropical menu that was so creative with coconut, pineapple and key lime inspired desserts, soy lacquered pork and a lemon arugula Parmesan salad that was to die for. I think it was everyone's favorite food of the weekend and I loved how creative and unique the menu was. We had it at the house we were staying at and the Whim staff was super nice and very helpful and the kitchen was spotless when they were done. All in all, they were fantastic to work with - definitely recommend. :)

    Amazing, delicious, beautiful

    Courtney at Whim took care of everything.. even all my last minute changes and indecissiveness with colors and arrangements. she was great and I would highly recommend working with her. The food was fantastic and everyone is still raving about it. We wanted a twist on clastic Austin, Texas food and Whim outdid themselves. The rentals were perfect and made our wedding feel like a dream. Highly recommend!
