Working with Jessica was super seamless and hassle-free. She did an amazing job of understanding what I was looking for and putting together pieces for our big day. The bouquets were absolutely gorgeous and the centerpieces and other table decor were stunning. I had a number of guests comment on how great the flowers were. She was able to work with the pieces I found to include and added her own pieces and creative touches to really make our vision complete. All-in-all it was super hassle-free and the result was amazing. I would highly recommend for any couple looking for beautiful florals!Sent on 01/22/2019
Anemone Chicago's reply:Thank you, Tricia for the great review! It was a pleasure designing for you and we loved the suitcases.

From design to delivery to follow-up, Anemone and Jessica Petty Smith was an excellent choice. Her design instincts, coupled with my goals and desires, made for wonderfully quirky, colorful arrangements that impressed the whole party. They also have greening practices, which makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside (not a lot of waste like foam and such). We got an excellent price and service was continuous. All the thumbs are up.Sent on 04/30/2018

We loved working with Anemone Creative. I was basically sold already when I first talked to Jessica about doing flowers for my wedding (from looking at her blog, which you should check out), but talking to her on the phone very quickly got me to 100%. Jessica very efficiently took a few Pinterest pictures and vague thoughts (…foliage? Different flower shapes? The venue is blue?) and was able to come to a coherent idea of key flowers (blueberry and yellow roses and thistle among others) and color palette and show me pictures of similar weddings she'd done over a short call.Sent on 09/01/2019
Jessica was great at thinking of budget friendly ideas - she designed the flowers so nothing needed to be returned and suggested reusing bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces, for example. While putting together our proposal, she visited our venue and came back with great ideas for additional decoration, but didn't push us to do anything we didn't feel comfortable with. We also really appreciated her eco-friendly approach and how easily she was to work with on tweaking the proposal.
Day-of logistics went swimmingly - flowers arrived to our getting-ready location on time, and when we got to the venue everything was already set up and gorgeous. The flowers themselves were totally amazing and perfect for us. After the wedding, we took the bridal bouquet apart to press the flowers and that process really made it clear how intricately and thoughtfully each individual bloom and leaf was selected and arranged. 5 stars, could not imagine better.

Beautiful Bridal Bouquet!
Anemone created a bridal bouquet for my wedding, and it was absolutely gorgeous! Jessica was professional, responsive, and great to work with from start to finish. I provided some inspiration pics for the bouquet, and Jessica ran with it to made something really special. I highly recommend Anemone for your flowers!Sent on 07/08/2019

Hire them now!
I can’t say anything but the best things about Anemone Creative and Jessica! We were going through various vendors for flowers and nothing seemed to match our style/vision or was just not realistic within our budget. However, when I chatted with Jessica, she was AMAZING! Right away, she knew the style I was looking for in our flowers and understood my priorities. She somehow magically made my vague disjointed ideas (and a few random photos from the internet) in to a seamless and classically beautiful design through the personal flowers and centerpieces. I also appreciated the time and effort Jessica put in to ensuring she understood exactly what we were hoping for in our various flowers. She would schedule time for us to chat over the phone or would respond quickly to emails. I also appreciated the flexibility that Jessica offered to ensure that the weird logistics of our wedding day didn’t stop us from having the flowers we needed when we needed – she was so flexible! While there were several vendors that had me a bit nervous in terms of quality and execution for the day of our wedding – Anemone Creative was NOT one of them! It was clear from the beginning I could trust Jessica to do an amazing job and that is exactly what she did. I can’t thank Anemone Creative enough for helping make our day so special! I so so so so recommend that any couple looking for an all-star vendor to help with their flowers and décor – hire Anemone Creative!Sent on 04/04/2019

Went above and beyond!
So great! I can't recommend the Anemone Creative team enough. From start to finish, Jessica was there to help nail down our ideas. She truly listened to what we wanted and the budget we had to work with, and ultimately she helped create the wedding of our dreams. The flowers and details at our ceremony and reception were exactly what we wanted and way more. Over and over again we heard compliments from our guests about the bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, ceremony/reception decor, etc. Anemone Creative helped make that day one we'll never forget!Sent on 12/02/2018

Best floral company in Chicago!
Anemone Creative is the best wedding floral team in Chicago! Jessica and her team transformed our rooftop venue to be the most romantic candlelit party our guests had ever seen. They are so creative and hands on with the planning process. We could not have asked for better wedding decor and cannot recommend Anemone Creative enough!Sent on 10/28/2018

Beautiful florals + awesome to work with!
Jessica was a pleasure to work with! From the original consultation to my wedding day, I felt like she was there to bounce around ideas, share her expert opinion, and field all my bridal craziness. All conversations about pricing were straight forward and I never felt duped or knickled and dimed like with so many other wedding vendors. The flowers turned out amazing and I can't wait to see how they photographed. Jessica took my random requests and pulled everything together in a unique and beautiful way that I couldn't have imagined. Rock star status!Sent on 10/26/2018

Couldn't Have Asked For More
Jessica (and the whole team at Anemone) made our wedding all that we could've hoped for and more. We started off with a VERY tight budget, and Jessica worked with us every step of the way, getting our theme perfectly, and creating a magical night. Great designer, great vision, and great person. Thanks, Jessica!Sent on 10/26/2018

Jessica did an AMAZING job for my wedding! She made the most beautiful flower crown for me, and a beautiful colorful bouquet. For my bridesmaids, she made gorgeous succulent crowns. Instead of the bridesmaids holding flowers, she made stunning cuffs of succulents that I adored! My flower girl loves bunnies. Jessica made the most adorable floral bunny ear headband for her to wear along with a mini version of my bouquet! She loved it and so did I! She made gorgeous succulent boutonnieres for my groom and groomsmen, as well as a mini one for my ring bearer. We changed venues at the last minute, and Jessica was so accommodating and amazing to work with. Our reception was at State and Main in Glenview. Instead of centerpieces, I asked that she decorate the four huge chandeliers with greenery and flowers. She went above and beyond! People asked me all night if that was the restaurant or our florist, and I said it was our florist Anemone! I felt like I was in a fairytale with all the hanging florals! Jessica even added beautiful succulents to the tables as centerpieces to match my bridesmaids and added gorgeous greenery in the bathrooms as an amazing surprise to me and I loved it!! Overall, Jessica went above and beyond and made my day more beautiful that I could have ever dreamed! She is a rockstar!!Sent on 07/26/2018

Jessica at Anemone Creative did an absolutely wonderful job with the floral designs for our wedding. Right from our initial meeting she was prepared and was able to incorporate her vision into our celebration without sacrificing my own. She was prompt with follow up, and was supportive and professional throughout the process.Sent on 07/04/2018
We also have to give Jessica special credit for being flexible. Because of our circumstances, we were unable to confirm our event with her until a week prior to our celebration, which left her in a tough position to try and arrange everything on a shortened schedule. Nonetheless, she was still able to provide us with an absolutely beautiful product, and we feel very fortunate that she was so accommodating.
We cannot recommend Anemone Creative enough. From their professionalism to the actual execution of the design, they were far more than we could have hoped for. Thanks Jessica!

The Anemone Creative team absolutely outdid themselves for our wedding on St. Patrick’s Day 2018. Their portfolio really intrigued me and when I first met with Jessica, the owner, she was very professional, helpful and more than accommodating. The only requests I had made was for pops of green and jewel toned flowers. The resulting bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpiece arrangements, wall accents and lanterns were stunning, seasonal, creative and well balanced. When we arrived at the venue, the arrangements took my breath away. Our guests are still singing the praises of the arrangements and accents and how stunning everything looked in the event space. I have recommended Anemone Creative to numerous couples already and cannot speak more highly of the professionalism that was exhibited and of their amazing work and attention to detail. I definitely recommend that you contact Anemone Creative if you are planning your big day!Sent on 04/07/2018

Jessica and Anemone Creative has been an overall complete pleasure to work with. When first meeting with Jessica, she knew exactly where we were headed in our explanation of what we wanted and DELIVERED in an awesome fashion!! The arch she made was just gorgeous, the bouquets and boutonnieres just beautiful. Jessica was a dream to work with and very accommodating with our requests (even one after the wedding). She also adapted quickly to the quick replacement of where the ceremony was to be held due to the rain. I would recommend Anemone Creative in a heartbeat if you are looking for quality flowers and quality service for your wedding!Sent on 12/26/2017

We were planning my Mom's 80th birthday party and I thought it would be fun to incorporate a costume theme into her party since she is a costume designer. We (my mom, sister and myself) met with Jessica and were pleasantly surprised by her enthusiasm and creativity. Jessica created 10 table center pieces that had decorated wire dress forms in the center surrounded by different flower arrangements. They were awesome!Sent on 12/31/2017
We had people from other parties at the country club stopping by to look at these. My mom was really happy with the result.

Jessica Smith is an incredibly creative and talented floral designer! From the first day I met her, she asked thoughtful questions and listened to my ideas and gained an understanding of my vision. Truthfully, my Mom was more particular about our floral pieces than me, and so Jessica ensured my Mom’s thoughts were incorporated. For instance, my Mom was adamant that my bouquet NOT be a “lollipop”. In response, Jessica created this elegant, cascading bouquet that used flowing green leaves and unique flowers to make it personal. I absolutely loved it and felt like a queen holding them. They definitely enhanced every picture!Sent on 09/25/2017
She is very hands on and present in her work. She was responsive, timely, professional, and most of all personable. She made me feel incredibly special and added the beauty of the day! Tapping her creative mind, Jessica is able to construct stunning displays to fit any color scheme, floor plan and budget.
Her extensive wedding experience proved valuable in creating the overall feel of our ceremony and reception room. She’s so detailed that she even suggested that our caterer lay the napkins flat on the dinner plate, instead of stuffing the water glasses, so as not to distract in the pictures. You’re not just getting a florist; she’s got an eye to help pull the whole look together!
If you’re looking for something better than cataloged flower arrangements and re-used designs, then you should pick Jessica Smith and Anemone Creative!

What a fantastic job by Jessica and team! My bouquet was fabulous -- her talent is so apparent with all of her creations -- including our ceremony arch: willow branches with painted green bases that matched perfectly. Jessica was always responsive, friendly, and full of ideas. Thank you for making our day extra special!Sent on 09/14/2017

The flower arrangements for my wedding were absolutely stunning! First, we looked at some color ideas I had in mind and Jessica went above and beyond my expectations. She used very fragrant, pretty and diverse flowers that looked so beautiful together. My bouquet was simply breathtaking. Myself and my guests were also very happy, since Jessica made the arrangements in to go vases, there was no wasting flowers and we were able to continue enjoy them for days ahead. Jessica was very professional, prompt and accommodated every request I made. I highly recommend her and her team for wedding flowers or simply any occasion. I will definitely keep her in my contact list.Sent on 08/02/2017

Jessica and her team were so wonderful and truly made my wedding day look beautiful! She listened to what I had envisioned and brought it to life. When I saw my venue with all the arrangements, it literally took my breath away. I cannot tell you how many people after my reception asked for Jessica's information.
