Why should event planners prioritize budget for floral design?

Lending care and attention to all details of your environment honors the excellence and creativity of God. Flowers soften a space, making it more vibrant and elegant. Plus, flowers make people happy.

People give them a bad rap, but they can work well if they’re the color you’re looking for. Buying seasonally always helps too. Shipping in a flower from Israel will cost way more than something that’s growing locally.
