    Best Florist in Kansas City

    For flowers Craig Sole Designs is the best! I called everyone in town, and they either said teardrops would be too difficult, or they were booked and to call Craig Sole! Its a small family run buisness run out of a building that used to be a house they turned into a beautiful flower shop!! They have been in the business for years. If it's difficult Pinterest type idea you have in your head, Craig knows what he is doing and can do anything! I had no real plan in my head and my bouquet was so gorgeous! All I said was no yellow red or orange and I wanted a teardrop and I was shocked by what he created! He even teaches you how to hold it to make you look the best depending on the shape or type of bouquet. Craig is a wonderful and fun man! Every interaction I had with him was a blast! I told him I needed flowers to decorate our cake and he said "how big is it, and what color flowers?" I told him and he said he knew exactly what and how many we would need! He is so much fun and will make you a work of art out of flowers that will literally make you gasp when you see it! I will use him for any future flower needs! He is a kind honest man who wants to make sure you are taken care of! When I asked him about preserving my bouquet he said don't... that it costs way too much usually twice as much as you pay for a bouquet itself and to spend that money on the honeymoon or something else that would be more worthy of the price tag! I really recommend This gem of a florist! They will work their hardest to make sure the flowers on your big day are perfect! Whether you only purchase a bouquet for yourself like I did, or if you go all the way and buy flowers to fill the whole venue, bouquets for all your bridesmaids, and boutonnieres! He will treat you exactly the same, with the same care, respect, and support! He would have delivered my one bouquet, but unfortunately he had 3 weddings that day, and I was so thankful he still accepted me as a client! He said he could add in one more bouquet no problem once I let him know I couldn't find anyone else and they all kept telling me that I should call him. I also found Craig himself or someone else, since everyone there is equally kind, knowledgeable and helpful, are always super easy to get ahold of on the phone daily if you ever have any questions or concerns! Sole Designs really are the best at what they do! You will not be disappointed if you choose to share your Big Day with them!

    Craig is amazing, and his designs are stunning. And by stunning I mean stop-in-your-tracks and appreciate the beauty of the moment because EVERYTHING LOOKS GORGEOUS. His arrangements transformed our ceremony and reception, with everyone raving about the flowers. But aside from being the best at what he does, he has this wonderful and warm personality, and is delightful to work with. Craig is an artist while I’m the analytical type, so it was a ton of fun just figuring out what to do and leveraging his creative personality. He will take whatever ideas you have (whether it’s virtually nothing or an entire vision), and then make your entire event beautiful. And really, he’s just easy to fall in love with…I can’t imagine having chosen anyone else!

    Craig is the funniest and most telant florist. He was so much fun to work with. He has so much energy. I love going to his shop and pet his cat and dog while discussing the wedding details over some nice cold drinks. I think he is secretly a magician because I just have to tell/show him what I want then he can just make it come true within our budget!! All the flowers and decorations he did for the wedding was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I wish I could live in that day forever!

    I can't say enough positive things about Craig & his entire team. They are so creative, flexible, and a joy to work with. Flowers were a very important component to me as I think arrangements can completely transform a space, and beautiful bouquets make wedding pictures that much prettier. I had so many different color schemes in my head and changed my mind about 5 times, and each time Craig was so helpful and fun to bounce ideas off of. In the end, he helped bring all of my ideas together and create bouquets/arrangements that were more beautiful than I could have imagined!

    Craig not only delivered GORGEOUS arrangements to my wedding, but he exceeded my expectations by going above and beyond with helping highlight the venue and give me tips on how to pose for photographs. He is especially fun to work with, too. What a great sense of humor! Craig is simply delightful and I would recommend him to anyone needing floral services.

    Craig is kind, attentive, and TALENTED! He's a total pro, and I am beyond grateful he was our florist! I live in NYC and my husband and I decided to get married in my hometown of Kansas City. I was concerned about finding the right florist and Craig was IT! He nailed my vision, my specific tastes, and took in to consideration our budget to create the most beautiful, cheery, and elgegant arrangements. I'm so pleased!

    Craig Sole is the wedding florist of your dreams!!! We came in with a vision and he literally made it come to life in a couple of sit down meetings (around 5 hours total - he really gives you his attention!). He focuses on you, what you want, AND what your budget is - while adding in his 30+ years of experience and creative genius. He's so congenial and enjoyable to be around, I'd go back to just to hang out with him in his inspiring little downtown OP house turned florist shop. I felt that Craig was invested in making my wedding come to life as more than just a florist, but also a friend and an all around designer as well. Our venue was a little different (a restaurant) but he still jumped right in with us. He's been doing this for so long and he saved us on so many things simply with his free ideas! He came to help set up himself on the day of and I was just so appreciative of everything he did and said that I cannot stress enough how amazing our experience was with Craig and his entire staff! :)

    I called Craig from out of the blue, and sight unseen he produced the perfect bouquet for my parents' 67th anniversary. He translated my wishes into a gorgeous, colorful, and witty burst of joy. It arrived in perfect shape, on the date as agreed. Craig is fun to work with, and my parents were thrilled. Craig kindly sent me a picture of the arrangement, so I'm happy too!

    Craig did the flowers for my son and daughter-in laws wedding last August. The flowers were exquisite. I have been lucky enough to use his services for years for my floral arrangements.
    One of Craigs's best attributes when doing either a large event or just a single arrangement is that he listens to his clients and then magically produces exactly what you were envisioning while staying within your budget.

    Wow, words cannot describe how beautiful the flowers were for my wedding. Craig Sole Designs was an absolute pleasure to work with and created floral designs better than we could have imagined. I met with Craig Sole a couple months before the wedding, as an initial meeting, and hired him after that meeting. In that initial meeting, Craig gave myself and my mother SO many tips regarding various aspects of the wedding that we utilized at the wedding. For instance, Craig noted my color choices were both cool colors and flowers of those colors would disappear in the dim lighting of my reception venue, and showed us pictures as examples. From there, he showed us different shades of the colors I wanted that would show up in the dim lighting, keeping with the colors I wanted just manipulating the shades of the colors to work better in the environment. Outside of flowers, he gave us many tips regarding table layout in the room, etiquette with my fiance's divorced parents to make them most comfortable, how to decorate the tables, and tips in many other areas of the wedding. Back to flowers, most of our wedding guests (we had 130 total guests) commented on how beautiful the flowers looked. We had 2 big displays, flowers as the centerpiece on 14 round tables, bridesmaid bouquets, bridal bouquet, boutonnieres, and wrist corsages. Craig Sole gave us great suggestions on how to use the flowers in multiple places to keep costs down (e.g., the bridal bouquet was the center piece on a family table at the reception, so one less center piece for a table was needed). Finally, after the event, Craig Sole Designs was incredibly flexible on the return of their vases. We took the flowers to my grandmother's nursing home and Craig Sole Designs picked them up from the nursing home a week later. Of all our wedding vendors, my family all noted how Craig Sole Designs was one of only three vendors that we had zero problems with, incredibly good service from, and would hire again any day!

    Craig designed the centerpieces for the Kappa Alpha Theta Founders Day! He used the black and gold theme to emulate good taste and style! Craig Sole is the consummate professional!

    Craig Sole was awesome to work with! After one meeting with Craig, he had a clear vision of exactly what I wanted and was able to create fabulous arrangements that we were so happy with. Craig is energetic, fun, knowledgable, and will exceed all expectations.

    It's been 2 years since my daughter's wedding, and I'm still thinking about the gorgeous flowers Craig Sole and his team did for the wedding and reception. Craig had lots of ideas for the bride to consider. He did everything he said he would do...and then some. The church looked beautiful, and the reception venue was stunning because of the floral arrangements. Love this guy!

    Craig was AMAZING!!! Not only did he make the most beautiful arrangements, but he delivered them to the rehearsal dinner site, picked them up, and redelivered them to the ceremony and reception site the next day. Everyone was raving about the flowers, and he was fabulous to work with. He is to the point, knows what looks good, and was extremely attentive and professional.

    Craig Sole was professional and responsive to our daughter and son-in-laws ideas for the flowers at their wedding ceremony and reception. We then trusted Craig to use his creative talents, and we could not have been more pleased. The flower arrangements were beautiful and they helped to set the stage for a perfect evening!

    Craig was absolutely amazing. From the first appointment, where he patiently explained ideas and etiquette to my parents and me, to reassuring my mom, to the day of the wedding he was wonderful. He executed our vision perfectly, actually he made it better. It was like he took what I was picturing in my head and made it real while staying within our budget. Craig also does little things to made your day even more special. For example, I had a handkerchief that I was not using the day of and he surprised me and used it in the wrap for my bouquet in addition to pins from my grandmothers (it was blue). I am so glad a friend of mine referred me to Craig and I highly recommend him!

    Craig is not just a florist; he is a very talented designer!

    He took our vision and made it come to life. He took a our small budget and made the centerpieces appear as if we paid five times as much as we did. Craig's ideas are endless and the flowers are beautiful and only the highest quality.

    Craig is fun and professional. He takes pride in his work and gives you 100%.

    If you want originality in your centerpieces and someone who knows wedding, you need to talk to Craig!

    Once I met with Craig I knew I didn't have worry about our flowers. He practically created my bouquet on our first meeting. The flowers were gorgeous and were a great value. Beautiful and unique table centerpieces, stunning altar flowers, darling flower girl wand.

    I was referred to look into Craig Sole Designs and was told that he is both wonderful to work with and affordable. Craig made everything so easy for me- I told him what I was looking for and I was in and out of his office within 45 minutes. I told him the colors that I wanted, some flowers that I like, and that I wanted him to surprise me on my wedding day. To say the least, I was beyond thrilled with his work! :)

    Craig was absolutely wonderful! It was a pleasure working with him from our first appointment 9 months prior the wedding. We were on the same page the entire time, and he envisioned everything just as I explained. The wedding came and the flowers were GORGEOUS! We got so many complements on the bouquets and flowers throughout the night. The chupah could not have looked any better!

    I would recommend Craig in a heartbeat!
