EVENT FLOWERS & DESIGN WORK
One of the most rewarding feelings in the world is to walk away from a wedding knowing that our team helped create something extraordinary and memorable for a couple on one the most important days of their lives.
We approach wedding work with the same passion with which we grow our flowers; we are seeking to create an aesthetic experience of beauty to send out into the world. Each wedding is very unique unto the individuals involved and we love creating a framework for our floral design around what each couple envisions for their day.
Some things to keep in mind when thinking about Bluebird Meadows as your floral designer...
What makes our work unique is that almost all of our design elements are grown right here on our farm, making our arrangements authentic and heartfelt. We intimately know each flower we use in every arrangement having taken it from seed to harvest; we like to think this intimacy and love comes across in our work and makes it all the more special for everyone involved.
We work with flowers by the seasons. If you are particular about specific flowers, we may not be the florist to work with as it's more about selecting the best of what is blooming in our fields at any given time.
We are a sustainable farm so you can feel really, really great knowing your flowers are chemical free and not imported from another country, and how much you are reducing the carbon footprint of your wedding by using a local farm.
The sooner we are booked for your wedding, the better we can plan and plant according to your palette and vision. That said, we can accomodate most color themes at most times.
FULL SERVICE WEDDINGS
Our full-service weddings express the best of what we do. We work closely with each couple to design and create a beautiful, seasonal floral display according to their taste and preferences. This option includes a consultation, design collaboration, delivery, and on site set-up and break down including any installations. We act just as a florist, making sure everything on site is as perfect as possible. Full service pricing for 2020 starts at $3K, and most of our weddings fall between $3k-$30k. Best months for full service weddings are mid-March through October. Weddings that fall outside of our main growing season, (November-mid March), full service pricing starts at $4K.
A LA CARTE WEDDINGS
Our farm and design team also offers an a la carte wedding option where we arrange some or all of the bridal party and reception florals but do not set up, break down, or do any on site installations. Flowers are typically picked up at the farm or at the Durham Farmers' Market, though we can deliver for an additional fee. This is a more economical option and does not include a face to face consultation. A la carte pricing starts at $750.
DIY & BUCKET WEDDINGS
We often provide buckets for clients who want to do all the arranging themselves using the best of what is local. We charge $85 for a 2 gallon bucket from May through September, and you should be able to get 8-10 mason jar size arrangements from one bucket depending on your arranging style. We can usually do color themes on the buckets but do not allow for choosing specific flowers received.
We create arrangements for special events throughout the year. Birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, graduations, corporate events, holiday parties and more. Please email to inquire about special events.
