1. INQUIRY

Once you've perused our galleries, read testimonials, and performed your due diligence, give us a call, shoot us an email or fill out a contact form and we'll get back to you within 24-36 hours. We respond quickly because we know you're juggling a million things at once and we'd like to put your mind at ease.

 

 

2. GETTING TO KNOW EACH OTHER

We'll collect the basic important information for your event and share some info about us to be sure we're a good match. If our calendar is free on your event day and the stars align, we'll schedule a complimentary consultation.

3. COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION

This is the fun part where we host a coffee date in our studio and get down to the nitty gritty about your vision. Botanica consultations are led by Zoe Gallina and Ian Prosser Production meetings are led by... well... Ian Prosser. 

Bring inspirational photos, Pinterest boards, magazine cut-outs or paint/linen swatches to help guide us. 

 

 

4. PROPOSAL DESIGNING

Using everything we've gathered from our meeting, we'll build a customized proposal detailing our ideas and pricing options within 7 business days of your consultation. In being respectful of your budget, we'll include multiple levels of pricing and floral design recommendations that don't disrupt the integrity and quality of your flowers.

 

 

5. Making it official

Once you've reviewed our proposal, we'll make things official by securing your event date with us. We'll then prepare an agreement and deposit schedule and any requirements for your big day. Don't worry - you will still be able make changes to your design proposal!

 

 

6. POLISHING & FINE-TUNING

You'll have the opportunity to revisit and tweak your proposal as many times as you'd like up until three weeks before the event date. Any changes after that three week mark may sacrifice the quality and availability of your flowers and decor.

 

 

7. TEST RUN

Here's where the real fun begins! If your confident in your proposal, we'll invite you to the studio for a sample viewing of your table design. We like to host you no earlier than 6-8 weeks before your event date to make sure your flowers are in season for the sample.
