I know you may be think­ing that an estab­lish­ment that has only 5 star reviews can’t be for real! WELL, it IS when it comes to Flower Duet.

After months of research try­ing to find a wed­ding florist, I had decid­ed to try and do it on my own because every­thing was out of my bud­get and no one seemed to want to work with me. I start­ed look­ing into tak­ing a flo­ral arrange­ment class or two so the flow­ers did­n’t look like a com­plete disaster…that’s when I found Flower Duet. I emailed her my sit­u­a­tion and she asked what my bud­get was. She was more than will­ing to work with me. We were able to save some mon­ey by doing a bou­quet ses­sion with my girls where we made all of our own bou­quets. These end­ed up dou­bling as cen­ter­pieces. Casey was there the entire time super­vis­ing us. It was such a fun expe­ri­ence with my bridesmaids!

I can be pret­ty par­tic­u­lar but every­thing turned out great!! The wed­ding flow­ers were beau­ti­ful and with­in bud­get — deliv­ered to the venue on time and per­fect!! Casey is a breath of fresh air to work with…so calm and sweet. I can’t rec­om­mend her enough. You will be so glad you chose Flower Duet.

My only wish is that I still lived in Los Ange­les so that I could take some of their classes!!!!”

Yay!.. just.. Yay!

My friend stum­bled the Flower Duet online while brows­ing through blogs and arranged for a few of us to attend one of their tours of the LA Flower Mart. Sur­pris­ing­ly enough, I was thrilled to get up at 5am on a Sat­ur­day to go! We met Casey at the des­ig­nat­ed loca­tion and from 7a-9a she led us through the fra­grant isles of the Flower Mart. Along the way, she gave us tips on how to pick the fresh­est bunch­es, arrange them prop­er­ly and make them last as long as pos­si­ble. Casey was SUCH a kind gal and you can sure as hell bet I’ll be attend­ing one of her arrange­ment classes.

5 stars for good ideas and kind people!”

wedding-flowersI can­not say enough won­der­ful things about Flower Duet, a flo­ral design stu­dio run by two amaz­ing sis­ters. These ladies are cus­tom florists who also offer a range of unique ser­vices includ­ing flower arrang­ing class­es (hand-tied bou­quets, cor­sages and bou­ton­nieres, round arrange­ments, wreaths, and more), tours of the flower dis­trict, and even a DIY DVD.

While plan­ning my wed­ding, I stum­bled upon their web­site, and decid­ed to take a hand-tied bou­quet class, and that class did not dis­ap­point. It was taught by Casey, and was so infor­ma­tive and fun! After you sign-up for the class, all you have to do is arrive at their stu­dio, where they have the flow­ers and equip­ment ready for you. And by the end of class, you walk out with your cre­ations. Casey is a fab­u­lous teacher, and also gives advice on what flow­ers will work best for the sea­son, loca­tion, and look of your event. After such a pos­i­tive expe­ri­ence with the first class, I decid­ed to take their cor­sage and bou­ton­niere class, which I also high­ly rec­om­mend. Then, I even took a field trip with Casey–along with some oth­er students–to the down­town flower mar­ket to learn how to select flow­ers, pur­chase flow­ers (yes, there is flower mar­ket eti­quette), and get an idea of what flow­ers are avail­able. Casey helped me pick out some flow­ers to exper­i­ment with. She observes the flow­ers you are drawn to, and can rec­om­mend oth­ers that will work with your pref­er­ences, or even show you hearti­er and/or cheap­er alter­na­tives, which is so help­ful if you are try­ing to stick to a budget.

Casey KNOWS her flow­ers, and will tell you what works and what does­n’t. Some wed­ding ven­dors make you feel ridicu­lous for attempt­ing DIY projects, how­ev­er Casey is not only sup­port­ive of such cre­ative endeav­ors, but actu­al­ly makes them pos­si­ble through her exper­tise. Even if you decide that you don’t want to do your own flow­ers, Flower Duet is a cus­tom florist and can do them for you.

Bot­tom line: work­ing with Flower Duet is a plea­sure, and I high­ly rec­om­mend them. Tak­ing their flower class­es and going to the flower mar­ket have been the high points of my wed­ding planning.”

Dear­est Kit and Casey,
What can I say that I haven’t already? Per­haps just MORE?

Thank you SO very much for the “Design­ing with Cit­rus” class yes­ter­day at the Hunt­ing­ton. I just LOVED the design which is say­ing a lot because I have loved and adored all the oth­er designs as well.

Also, I had for­got­ten to share the fact that after hav­ing tak­en the Regency inspired hand bou­quet class.… I con­tin­ued to make bou­quets for the next cou­ple of weeks. I took a bou­quet to each of my son’s teach­ers for teacher appre­ci­a­tion week. They were very well received. In fact, one of the teach­ers wants to take a class from you. I might be bring­ing her with me one of these months.

Anyhow.…many many thanks to you both. I so enjoy your instruc­tion, your com­pa­ny and both your bright faces.”
