Working with Kristen was an absolutely fantastic experience. Communicating with her was a breeze and a joy. Her creative suggestions and expertise brought my vision to life and made the florals for our wedding beyond what I could have imagined. After my first conversation with her I trusted her fully to do our wedding. She allowed us to utilize vases we found that matched our color scheme and came up with great ideas to incorporate other floral arrangements to match. I had a rather specific image in mind for my bouquet and my bridesmaids bouquets and she executed this perfectly. She was respectful of our budget and helped us find ways to stay within that budget while still achieving the look we wanted.
Our wedding was during a record heat wave, but at no point did Kristen express concerns about this. I never once worried about my flowers in the heat because Kristen was prepared and took every necessary precaution to make sure they all looked amazing all night.
I have had multiple people ask me where I got my flowers and comment on how beautifully they were arranged.
Working with Kristen was totally stress free and added such a unique and personal touch to our wedding. We are so thankful we found her and would absolutely recommend her to everyone!

I found Kristen through several online searches of florists in my area. She had wonderful reviews, and many saying she is able to work with your budget. From the get go she was super responsive. After my initial email, she worked quickly to get an idea of what I was looking for and sent me an estimate / proposal for my wedding. I wasn't 100% sure what I was looking for, but knew I wanted sunflowers and sent her over some inspiration pictures. I booked her right away based on how affordable her services were! A month or so before the wedding she called me to go over everything she had in the proposal. She was very accommodating and removed some things we no longer needed, and added flowers we decided we wanted during our planning process. I am clueless when it comes to flowers, and Kristen helped me decide what would look nice together, and flowers that were similar to my inspiration photos. A few weeks later, we had to drop off the vases we purchased for the centerpieces to her house. My husband got lost on the way, so I called Kristen to see if she could help us with directions. She was so kind and took my husband's phone number down to help him find her, and then even texted me when he got there to let me know he made it!

The day of the wedding everything was at the venue and set up before either my husband and I arrived on site. Everything was absolutely beautiful, from the bouquets and the centerpieces, down to the cake! I can't thank you enough for making my flower vision come to life!

I hired Kristen for our wedding this past weekend and it was easily one of the best decisions we made. Our flowers were absolutely stunning and she exceeded every expectation I had, not to mention she is very responsive and flexible which made me feel incredibly comfortable. 5 stars. Pictures to follow.

Kristen made all of our floral dreams come true at our wedding! She listened to what we wanted and made it come to life perfectly. Her flowers were beautiful and they received many compliments from guests. Her gold moon gate ceremony backdrop was particularly stunning. Kristen also listened to an idea I had about surprising my mother with an arrangement to attach to her wheelchair and my mother loved it! I highly recommend Kristen--she is extremely prompt, professional, and talented! More...

When I was looking for florists, I was looking for vendors who made beautiful designs, but were also within my budget. Kristen really surpassed my expectations. From the start, she was extremely responsive, going back and forth with me on the different arrangements I needed, and even sending me a pinterest page of flowers that I would like. I met with her in person and she was extremely flexible, always listening, offering her suggestions, and making sure she took down all the details. She was also willing to work within my budget, which I truly appreciated. Come wedding day, she went above and beyond, my guests kept complimenting me on the beautiful flowers!!! They really were a work of art and was delighted seeing how they made my wedding so special. Overall, if you want a florist who knows what she is doing, is friendly, flexible, and responsive... look no more! More...

Kristen was amazing to work with! I gave her a general idea of what I was looking for and she hit it out of the park! Kristen went above and beyond what I was expecting with everything from the bouquets to the table decorations. Not only was everything gorgeous, her prices where much more reasonable than other vendors I had spoken to. I would highly recommend working with her! More...

Kristen provided gorgeous, fresh flower arrangements for the church, the wedding party, and welcome table. She brought my daughter's vision to life perfectly, was on time, was both personable and professional, and she always responded to our questions promptly. Highly recommend her for any function that needs floral arrangements. More...

We hired Kristen to do the flowers for our wedding at the Ipswich Country Club in May 2019. Kristen was wonderful to work with and was always willing to go the extra mile. We had originally asked Kristen to do flowers for the wedding party only and were planning to make our own centerpieces. About a month and half out we decided to ask Kristen to do the centerpieces as well and she jumped right in and even offered to paint the vases we had bought herself. When Kristen arrived with the flowers on the day of, I was truly blown away by how beautiful they were. From the centerpieces to the bridesmaids bouquets to my bouquet, everything was just above and beyond what I had ever expected. Kristen even brought some extra flowers to arrange in the entry and on our sweetheart table. I can’t recommend Kristen highly enough. More...

One of the elements of planning our wedding that I was most excited for was flowers. I absolutely love fresh flowers, and wanted have a fun, personal and unique bouquets and centerpieces at our wedding. Kristen did the flowers for my sister's wedding which we loved, so my fiancee and I reached out to see if Kristen could work with us, in our budget. From the very first interaction and until the day she dropped off our flowers, Kristen was incredible to work with. She listened to what we were looking for, made recommendations based on our bridesmaids colors and venue, and made sure to incorporate my favorite flowers and antique pitchers we had collected to be part of our theme. Each of the bouquets and boutineers Kristen created was unique, but they all tied together beautifully. I couldn't have been more thrilled with our flowers or working with Kristen - everything totally exceeded our expectations!! More...

Kristen was the best choice for our wedding. We got married at Willowdale Estate and she did a beautiful job. Right when we met her at her beautiful home, we knew she was the one! She not only did she come up with gorgeous ideas based on my colors, but she worked within our budget and gave fantastic suggestions. More...

Kristen Blais is amazing. Period. She is super flexible, friendly, thoughtful and most importantly, does beautiful work! We called Kristen "late in the game" and she was easily able to accommodate us. Her prices are more than reasonable, and her work is just beautiful. Our guests all were wowed by the flowers and table centerpieces....we were as well! If you want beautifully arranged florals, a thoughtful designer and someone who will work with your ideas, Kristen is absolutely the person to work with. If you are holding your wedding at Willowdale, even better! She knows the venue and will stand and deliver! Loved her! More...

She did a wonderful job hearing my thoughts and ideas and bringing them to life! Her bouquets and arrangements well exceeded my expectations!

Kristen did our flowers for our wedding and she was fantastic! I chatted with about 10 vendors for flower arrangements and she was so easy to talk to, able to help me work through my needs and budget and she had a beautiful vision for our wedding day. I live in Virginia so it wasn't easy planning our wedding in Boston but she made it seamless. I did meet with Kristen one afternoon to go over all of the final details and she put me completely at ease and it really felt like we were on the same page with the designs and pricing. The wedding came and went and I can say she exceeded our expectations!! The bouquets, table arrangements, boutonnieres, corsages and decorative flowers were absolutely stunning. We received so many compliments from our guests about the flowers and how beautiful they were. I would HIGHLY recommend Garden Designs by Kristen! More...

I cannot say enough good things about Kristen. Right from the beginning she was very responsive and thorough, always making sure we were exactly on the same page. She was so warm and excited when we met with her and was eager to both hear my thoughts and to offer her expertise. I was so grateful that she was able to make changes throughout the planning process and to always be mindful of our budget.
Then when the day actually came, she shared in my excitement and let me sit back while she took care of everything. And the flower, OH MY GOSH were they stunning. They were more beautiful than I could have hoped for.
Kristen was so easy to work with and has such a beautiful eye. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Kristen did a fantastic job with our wedding flowers. She put together beautiful displays, center pieces, bouquets, and boutonnieres. She was very professional, punctual, and easy to work with.

Kristen is the best! She and her team are super creative and have done a fantastic job designing holiday decor for my house, porch and container plantings. I've used Kristen for winter holiday (including lighting) and 4th of July and am so happy with her team's service, attention to detail and level of respect they have for my property (they work clean and left everything spotless!) I highly recommend Kristen. More...

Kristen was amazing! The flowers themselves were absolutely perfect, and Kristen was so friendly and professional. I booked really late, but she got right to work and came up with a masterpiece. She was really aware of the styles and colors I wanted - we went through my Pinterest page together, which I loved - and also put her own spin on it, too. She created beautiful and elegant arrangements for my ceremony, the wedding party, and the reception, plus some extras for my cake. She was mindful of my budget and very open about cost for each option we discussed. I wanted a florist who would listen to what I wanted and then just take care of everything, without needing to check in with me on lots of details, and Kristen filled that role perfectly. I would 100% recommend her to anyone! More...

One of the best decisions I made was choosing to work with Kristen. She is responsive, creative, and loves what she does. She went well beyond helping us with our incredible flowers; she suggested table cloth ideas (which I immediately went with and loved), had inside tips about our venue, and even had the amazing idea to use extra lace for my dress in the centerpieces. She added SO much to our day and I truly can't thank her enough. More...

First, Kristen's passion for her profession is apparent from the moment you meet her. She loves what she does, and it shows in the beautiful designs she creates. We wanted a custom garland for our event, and she brought it to life in the most elegant way. She created such beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres, wristlets, corsages, and centerpieces - we received so many compliments on everything she did.

Also, her attention to detail is off the charts. I mentioned to Kristen that I had leftover lace that I'd had removed from my dress, and she used that lace on my bouquets, our centerpiece vases, and even the flower girl basket. She also gave samples of the lace to our wedding coordinator, who was then able to match it with other details on our day. Walking into our reception room and seeing all of these perfectly corresponding pieces took my breath away, and that's all thanks to Kristen's great ideas and follow through.

If you are lucky enough to work with Kristen, you will have moments on your big day where you are just in awe of how much she thought of and added to your wedding.

Kristen demonstrates a wide knowledge- base about gardens, designs & professionalism. She, & her team, has worked hard to carry out my wishes with thoughtful suggestions, & in a timely manner. Kristen has done such a fantastic job in the installation & maintenance of my garden. She has transformed my very small back yard into a beautiful, & amazing garden. It will be featured in next year’s garden tour here in town! More...

Kristen did a beautiful design and back yard garden installation for me. Everyone who comes to see the yard says the gardens need to be on a garden tour! She works extremely fast, did the project exactly when she said she could and finished right on time. Don’t let the name of her business fool you, her and her crew installed 4 huge trees. She was affordable and always available for questions. Great job Kristen! More...

Kristen and her team swooped in to create a miracle in my backyard! I couldn't have been more pleased. She listened to what I wanted to accomplish and then made multiple suggestions that in some areas made much more sense. Things were weeded, overgrown decorative grasses were split, bushes moved to better locations etc. I would not hesitate to recommend this business. More...

The flowers that Kristen put together for my wedding day left me in awe. They were absolutely beautiful and were everything that I could have hoped for and more. This lady is so incredibly talented (and also super sweet). My husband and I took the leftover flowers from the reception with us on our honeymoon because these beautiful arrangements needed to be treasured for as long as possible. I also dried out my bouquet so I can keep it forever. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything, Kristen!! More...

Kristen was amazing!! Honestly I selected her because she was within my pretty tight budget, and she totally exceeded my expectations. We worked together mostly via email before the big day, and she did a great job helping me narrow down my somewhat scattered vision. She's very experienced and can work with many different vibes. I was a little anxious because most of the photos of her work on here are of tighter/more formal looking arrangements and bouquets and I was going for a messier, more organic vibe. She was very confident/assuring throughout the design process and totally knocked it out of the park! She also made things work that I didn't think were possible -for instance our welcome sign easel and frame were extremely flimsy so a few days before the wedding I wrote to say to leave off the flowers on it, yet somehow she totally made it work! She doesn't do a ton of weddings each weekend, so I trusted her team to get things where they needed to be on time and with great attention to detail and they totally pulled it off! Highly recommend!!! More...

Kristen is incredible! Her work is absolutely stunning and she is a delight to work with. She is warm, friendly, and genuinely cares about giving you exactly what you want. I was amazed at how she made the vision in my head come to life and then even further exceed expectations, all while staying within my budget. Everyone who attended the wedding, my bridesmaids, the other vendors, and anyone who has seen photos from my wedding have raved at how gorgeous the flowers were. Kristen was helpful in guiding me through the process, providing ideas and resources, and I felt comfortable leaving some decisions to her, given her expertise. I cannot say enough positive things about Kristen and her business. Professional, personable, easy to communicate with, and affordable. The flowers were one of my favorite things about my wedding and compared to many floral shops, I feel you're getting more for your money, both in quantity and quality. I highly recommend Kristen and will tell every future bride I know about her. More...

The flowers were absolutely beautiful. Kristen was by far one of my favorite vendors. I remember the day of my wedding repeating over and over again how beautiful the flowers were. Kristen listened to exactly what I had in mind in terms of color and style and then delivered on this and then some. Prices were reasonable and she was flexible to allow me to make some last minute changes. I can't say any negative things about this vendor. You will not be disappointed! More...

After searching the internet, contacting several other vendors, and receiving a few proposals for the flower arrangements for my daughter’s wedding, I read a number of very positive reviews of Garden Designs by Kristen written by brides whom had recently used her for their wedding flowers. Soon after, I met with her. Kristen was a pleasure to talk with and she listened carefully to my flower preferences and style ideas while she made thoughtful suggestions. Kristen seemed very organized and she was willing to work within our budget. In addition, she answered emails promptly, provided photos of her floral designs, and sent me a detailed proposal within a few days. Also, several months before the wedding, Kristen met with my daughter and I again to go over everything and she left us feeling comfortable and confident in her work. In the end, we were thrilled with the absolutely gorgeous flowers Kristen designed for Sarah’s midsummer wedding! Everything from the stunning bridal bouquet and ten lovely, complimentary bouquets for the bridesmaids to the buttonaires, mother’s flowers, ceremony decorations, and reception centerpieces were all beautiful and reflected the colors and style that we had hoped for. And, we got many compliments from our guests on the flowers! We would highly recommend you consider Garden Designs by Kristen for your wedding floral arrangements! More...

Planning a wedding out of state was a very difficult project, I called around to many florists, spoke with them to see if they understood my vision, not many of them did.... After speaking with Kristen my decision was made! She was not only flexible, but she "got it". Its amazing to find a vendor who is truly looking out for your best value. Kristen made amazing suggestions, worked with our budget, and created amazing pieces. She made sure that everything was written out, organized and perfect!

I would suggest her to ANYONE of my friends and family! Such a pleasure to work with!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Kristen! We came in with a tight budget initially, and she had so many creative ideas to help us save money on flowers. We ended up going over budget on our own accord, but still would have paid A LOT more with any other florist for what we got. Kristen was always responsive and professional, and also kept me calm throughout the planning process. She also acted as a friend to calm my nerves when I was anxious about everything looking good together. She acted as our "event design" person as well. She stored all of our event decor (for both ceremony and reception locations), and put everything together. I got many many compliments on how beautiful our flowers, and all other decor was, and I credit all of that to Kristen. If you are looking for a florist, definitely book her! More...

We had used Kristen previously for some landscaping, and also for a large fundraising "Ball" at a beautiful colonial hall. For that event, and for this wedding - as always - Kristen did a stunning job. She met with us several times, took excellent notes and pictures of exactly what the bride wanted, did all the delivery and setup. The bride's bouquet was - without doubt - the most beautiful work of art I've ever seen. My daughter has worked as a wedding planner, so she has been involved in multimillion dollar weddings many times. This, however, was the most stunning I've ever seen. I would highly recommend Kristen for any event at any time.

For my second daughter's wedding - at our home - Kristen truly outdid herself. Landscaping to accommodate her needs - even in her colors. Flexibility, ease of use, creativity - way above and beyond the call. I can't say enough about how wonderful she is to work with, and what a beautiful job she does. I would never use anyone else!

Kristen is AMAZING! She arranged all of the flowers and decorations for our wedding in late October and she was so wonderful and easy to work with. I like to think that I'm pretty laid back, but I'm afraid that I came at her like a whirlwind - and she was so calm and patient with me throughout the process. She did everything I asked for and so much more (i.e. she took the remainder of the flowers and put them into the ladies room)! She was extremely creative and helpful with suggestions. The bouquets and the centerpieces were just gorgeous.

And on top of all of that - she fit everything into my budget!

I think the proof is in the pictures but the journey to get to that beautiful end result was so enjoyable with Kristen - I just can't recommend her highly enough!

Book her for your wedding/special event! You will not regret it!

Kristen was a dream to work with for our wedding. She understood our wishes and our budget, and created BEAUTIFUL centerpieces and bouquets that reflected everything we wanted.

Kristen did a beautiful job with the three bouquets I ordered and bud/medium vases for my centerpieces. I really appreciated how responsive and encouraging she was with my ideas and really took the vision I had and brought it to life. She is so sweet and easy to work with - she also had two pillars we rented from her for the ceremony and she covered them in eucalyptus, which made a really beautiful wintery/earthy look. I love flowers and this was an important part of the day for me and Kristen really brought everything together just the way I wanted. More...

Kristen was wonderful to work with and NEVER tried to up sell her services,. In fact it was quite the opposite, on our first meeting she came up with many ideas to save money.

I chose Garden Designs by Kristen for my October 2016 wedding and am so happy I did!

Kristen was the only designer that I met with. I felt very comfortable when we met and felt that she listened to what I liked and didn't like. It was clear to me that she is very knowledgeable about flowers, greens and plants. I told her what my budget was. I know some people like to keep their budget close to the vest but I wanted her to be able to accurately provide me with what could be done for the amount. I really like the ideas that she had and what we came up with together. We were in touch a few times after our meeting to finalize details.

The day of the wedding she was on time with the drop offs. My bouquet was just what I wanted--stunning. The boutonnieres and corsages were good sizes and lasted the entire event. It can be difficult to describe the feeling that you want your wedding to convey and how the flowers will add to that feeling---I wanted classy and festive but not typical (if that makes sense). Kristen NAILED it. The reception dining room was magazine worthy. I peaked in the room before anyone went in and it was breathtaking. There were swags on the fireplaces with plenty of greenery and harvest fruits and vegetables. The tables had beautiful centerpieces---so beautiful that my aunts took them without even asking me if I had anything planned for them! Two guests at the wedding specifically told me while we were at the reception they thought the flowers and decorations were beautiful-- it stuck out in my mind b/c what guests really focus on the flowers at a wedding-- it's usually just the bride!

Without hesitation, I recommend Garden Designs by Kristen for a wedding or another event. She was professional, her design skills were top notch and the flowers/plants used were high quality and fresh.

As I was not doing formal flower arrangements for my wedding, I needed someone willing to put together just bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres. Kristen responded with in an hour of my initial email, and was able to accommodate my needs with a very quick turnaround. The price was extremely fair, and most importantly, the quality was amazing. She worked with my favorite flowers and made sure I was happy with the color scheme. The bouquets were incredibly fresh, and adorned with fresh herbs (which I requested), so the smell was beautiful. It's been two days, and my bouquet still looks terrific. More...

Kristen is absolutely amazing. Her and I planned my flowers purely through email....which I know can be stressful without talking to or seeing someone in the wedding planning process. She was always quick to respond by email. The flowers were absolutely amazing, my bouquet was beautiful with tons of flowers (but wasn't "over the top"), it was just perfect. The flowers she picked were gorgeous. I did not have her do centerpieces, as I thought I would save money by making my own.....I was so wrong.. Making your own centerpieces is incredibly stressful, and the price can add up fast. if you can have Kristen do them I would go back and do that! Her prices were super affordable.

Kristen came highly recommended by our wedding venue and we were so happy with her communication and the final result! I provided Kristen with a couple of inspiration photos and she did an awesome job of creating a unique mix of the inspirations. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and added such an elegant touch to our cocktail hour and reception. Price was very affordable and we also highly recommend her!! More...

Kristen was the artist I hired to create the floral arrangements for my daughter's wedding. I use the words artist and create for good reason. It is not the work but the creativity behind the design that makes Kristen so good. for example, I sent her a picture of a decoration on the last chair of a garden wedding. I told her to do something like it. She took the concept and created a unique design I would never have thought of. No one wanted to sit in those last two chairs that framed the aisle because they were so beautiful.

Kristen is creative, professional, punctual, intuitive.

Bravo! Thank you, Kristen for a gorgeous wedding!

Kristen was wonderful to work with. The flowers at our wedding could not have been more beautiful and were exactly what I had envisioned. Kristen listened to all my thoughts and truly brought my vision to life with her extreme talent and design! We received so many compliments on the arrangements and were blown away by the beauty of each little detail. The flowers were stunning and you could tell had been cared for well in advance of the ceremony. Each and every petal and sprig were just gorgeous! I cannot say enough good things about Garden Designs by Kristen. Truly a wonderful vendor to work with. Thank you Kristen! More...

Kristen was fantastic! My wife and I met with her 6 months before the wedding to talk through our ideas. I wasn't really sure what I wanted, but I brought a few Pinterest bouquet photos and a picture of our cake to the consultation, and Kristen was able to create a quote for us that same day based on the photos. On the day of the wedding, everything looked great! We ordered five bouquets and a cake topper, and every piece was beautiful. The bouquets even arrived in mason jars, so our bridal party could take theirs home after the wedding. More...

What can I say that hasn’t already been said in the other reviews? Bottom line- I would highly recommend Kristen for your wedding! Kristen was so great to work with throughout the planning process, she was always extremely responsive and completely transparent when it came to pricing/budget. I provided her with a few pictures of what I liked for flowers, gave her my budget and let her have the creative freedom for all my floral arrangements- it was one of the best decisions I made for the wedding! She somehow knew exactly what I wanted! The venue for my ceremony was a blank canvas, Kristen’s ideas/execution of the ceremony décor exceeded my expectations and helped to create the intimate environment I was seeking! Ultimately, I loved every single bouquet, boutonniere, corsage, centerpiece and decorative arrangement! More...

Kristen was a delight to work with. She went above and beyond to make sure my flowers were perfect throughout the planning and execution. She was extremely responsive and willing to listen to all my ideas and make recommendations based on her experience, and to work within my budget. The flowers were exquisite and exceeded all my expectations. Thank you Kristen for your kindness and patience and for delivering such incredible arrangements from bouquets to centerpieces that made our wedding so beautiful! More...

I couldn't stop looking at them while we were getting ready and during the reception (Kristen had some great ideas on how to decorate with our bouquets after the ceremony). I'm still getting compliments on the flowers! Kristen is your gal, especially if you're looking for someone to help you get creative about the space you're using. I can't say enough nice things about her and her work. More...

Kristen was fantastic! I chatted with about 10 vendors for flower arrangements and she was so easy to talk to, work through my needs and budget and she had a beautiful vision for our wedding day. I live in Virginia so it wasn't easy planning our wedding in Boston but she made it seamless. I did meet with Kristen one afternoon to go over all of the final details and she put me completely at ease and it really felt like we were on the same page with the designs and pricing. Well the wedding came and went and I can say she exceeded our expectations. The bouquets, table arrangements, boutonnieres, corsages and decorative flowers were absolutely stunning. We received many compliments from our guests about the flowers and how beautiful they were. I would HIGHLY recommend Garden Designs by Kristen! More...

Kristen was absolutely wonderful to work with and did a beautiful job with our wedding flowers. She was extremely flexible when we changed our minds on things (which happened more than a few times) and was very open to new ideas. She took our Pinterest boards for inspiration, but instead of copying it exactly, built upon the ideas and made something completely unique and much more beautiful than anything we could find online. I also loved that she took the time to write out proposals for us so that we could see everything we had discussed in writing. Kristen thought of many things that we hadn't thought to consider and was very conscious of working within our budget. Not to mention, she is very friendly and fun to be around! I always looked forward to our meetings with her (and so did the groom, who typically isn't into flowers at all!).

When the big day came, so did hurricane-level winds, and our outdoor ceremony needed to be moved inside. I didn't need to worry about anything, as Kristen was able to translate our vision perfectly to the indoor space. When I finally saw the flowers, they took my breath away. I think I actually spent most of the ceremony looking at the unbelievable arrangements behind us! The centerpieces brightened up the entire hall, and the overcast skies in our outdoor pictures make the bright flowers in the bouquets pop.

I would highly recommend Kristen for any wedding or event and look forward to seeing more of her work in the future!

Kristen was wonderful to work with for our wedding. As a military offer for my now husband and I she offered complimentary use of anything in her own personal garden for us to use for our floral arrangements. Her work is breathtaking. Kristen did a lot for us: bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, ceremony arrangements hanging with trailing vines, cup cake table and bathroom arrangements and she did vine work to cover poles inside the Sperry tent for our reception. She welcomed us to her property a year in advance to see what was in bloom during our wedding month. She was very knowledgeable and helpful, as I did not know much about flowers. She was fun to work with and always prompt with email responses and changes to the contract. I would greatly recommend Kristen, her work is amazing! More...

Kristen's flowers were extraordinary! I felt like my ideas and vision were all over the place yet somehow she executed things better than I could have imagined! I think this made walking in to see the bouquets and boutonnieres even better because my initial reaction was a gleeful, "how did she know!?" It only got better as I walked down the aisle to see altar arrangements that amazed me and had guests coming up to me during the cocktail hour just to talk about the gorgeous reception tent.

Almost as great as her work is her very reasonable prices. Other vendors quoted me event minimums higher than my total bill from Kristen. I cannot recommend her more highly!

Kristen worked with me to understand my landscaping preferences, provided beautiful concept drawings, and did the installations; including several huge planters. Everything was done within time and budget, and it all turned out beautifully. She is professional and extremely pleasant to work with and have on my property! I look forward to having her come back this spring to continue her routine maintenance and quality checks, plant some annuals in the many perennial beds she installed last year, and re-plant my planters. She is very creative - you are not going to see the same old geraniums, petunias, and marigolds if you hire her! Highly recommend! More...

When I moved into a new home several years ago, the yard was full of mature landscaping and flowers, and I had no idea how to take care of it. I learned about Kristen's business through a colleague and from our first meeting she proved to be professional, personable and incredibly helpful. She was able to share her extensive knowledge with me regarding the existing landscape, and was able to make suggestions to improve the visual appeal of the exterior of the home. For whatever garden design project that you have, I would recommend Kristen without hesitation. More...

My husband and I enjoy landscaping and design. Being very particular about what we are looking for - we usually would never hire a designer to help with our gardens. Kristen happens to be a wonderful neighbor and seeing the breathtaking landscape she created in her own home was one of the many reasons we chose Kristen to help us create a landscape with our favorite plants and bushes. I cannot wait for spring each year as my front yard is so beautiful and elegant. Lush with Hydrangeas and Boxwoods arranged and planted by Kristen, our garden has caused many to comment and stop by through the fall months. I highly recommend Kristen as she is passionate and knowledgeable about her design. She is professional in all aspects. Our landscape is stunning and the primary reason we love our home! More...

Kristen and her crew are fantastic! Extremely knowledgable and helpful. I hired them after seeing her work all over town and every time I asked "who did your landscaping?" the answer always came back, "Garden Designs by Kristen." I've been happy with everything she has done for me since. She takes care of my business as well as my home landscaping and I can leave it in her hands and know I'm going to get something beautiful every time. From the moment I met her it was like I'd known her for years. She is very down to earth and easy to talk to. When asked to do something even last minute she never disappoints.
I would highly recommend her!

Kristen was a pleasure to work with and paid particular attention to our vision. Our yard was very overgrown, shady, and lacking curb appeal. Kristen suggested plant/bushes that would best grow in the environment we had. Under her direction we had trees trimmed, bushes removed and plants relocated in other areas of our yard. Kristen took our ideas, added a few of her own and created a beautiful garden for us. We are very excited to see everything bloom each spring! Our neighbors actually stopped by to compliment our new garden! More...

Kristen designed and implemented new flowers, shrubs, and bushes in our front yard. Kristen coordinated the removal of the old shrubs and flowers that were old, overgrown, and outdated.
We were very happy with Kristen's work. She and her team were very responsive, prompt, professional, and the work was completed exactly on the agreed upon schedule.

Since this project we have hired Kristen again for smaller projects in our yard. Kristen will be our first choice for any future design and planting work for our home.

Kristen's work was great and her pricing is very reasonable. Kristen was a pleasure to work with, she has a great attitude, and she met all time deadlines and was on budget.

We look forward to working with Kristen in the future.

She listens well, responds to special requests, allows for individuality while still integrating her own expertise and creative skills. Kristen is reliable, hard-working, efficient.

I hired Kristen to do a series of projects between June 2013 and September , 2014. The first project was to create a design to add color and interest to our backyard. She did a great job adding perennials and annuals. Later that year she also planted bulbs so that we had blooming tulips and daffodils to mark the beginning of spring. I loved looking out the kitchen windows and seeing so much color and beauty every day. Another project was to replant several bushes that had taken over a section of the back yard that blocked the view of additional plantings. After assessing our property she recommended moving them to a corner of our front yard that had no plants. The replanting was successful and now that area adds interest to the front of our house. She is very knowledgeable and very professional. I plan to continue to use her services for some new projects this year. More...

We have worked with Kristen for years, from landscape design, to planting, to troubleshooting and event design (weddings, Christmas, etc.). We have recommended her multiple times to many different people for different needs. She is an absolute delight to work with, always willing to take on whatever challenge we might face. She also collaborates well with, and is willing to recommend others who work well for ancillary work: stonemasons, tree removal/care, heavy equipment needs, etc.

Her designs are absolutely stunning, yet she can accommodate a wide range of styles. She is also always able and willing to come up with alternatives, whether for budget or personal taste considerations.

All in all, I'll never work with anyone else for our needs in this area. Our most recent project is upcoming, but, as I said, we have worked with Kristen continuously since 2007.

We've had so many compliments from friends and neighbors! Kristen chose plantings carefully with regard to the amount of sunlight the area receives, the style and color of the house and (as requested) ease of care and maintenance. Kristen also maintains the gardens for us. The result of her efforts is spectacular. We're so happy to have found Kristen and would highly recommend her...happily, she is truly as lovely as the gardens she designs! More...

We had build a new home and Kristen helped us develop a garden landscape plan that worked with our space and budget, yet allowed for future additions and growth around the home. I have seen others design plans for people that look great for a year or two but overwhelm the space with too much planted in an area. Kristen makes sure to show you what the space will look like in the future and then plant appropriately.

She was great to work with and really listened to our desires and gave us a colorful design plan and a complete plant outline to allow us to start within our budget yet allow us to expand as we were able to add more plants.

We will definitely use her again!

I highly recommend working with Kristen. Before working with Kristen, I was unclear on my vision and very unsure about how to choose the right florals for our wedding - but Kristen helped me discover what I was looking for and the eventual product was better than I could ever have imagined; she had great ideas and always stayed true to the goals I didn't even know I had.

The bouquets and floral centerpieces were stunning - she provided amazing details I could never have even thought to imagine like pearl beads along the bouquet wraps. She also built a BEAUTIFUL thatched arch with white lights that became the focal piece for our ceremony - we stood under it as we were married. The craftsmanship literally blew us away and has made all our ceremony pictures feel like a winter wonderland. Exactly what we were looking for. We received so many complements on this piece and couldn't imagine our day without it.

Kristen was responsive, professional, and went above and beyond. I planned my wedding from out of town and having Kristen locally was an amazing stress relief - she even went to the venue to check up on their holiday decor because I couldn't be there. On top of it all, her prices were competitive and she was a pleasure to work with.

Thank you Kristen!

When my first florist bailed on me, I was a little devastated. Being able to find Kristen turned my world around. Starting from a few emails and a meeting to more emails for exchanging ideas, working with Kristen was just so pleasant. She is very professional even her primary work is garden design but not wedding floral. And her garden design knowledge actually put her outside the normal wedding florist's box and made her creative. She even came up with ideas that to reuse the flowers on the ceremony to the reception which saved me money. Her work really wowed me on the wedding. She set everything up so perfectly that I was able to be worried free. All of my guest raved about how beautiful the center pieces are and I really can't say enough good things about Kristen, and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wedding florist or help on garden design.

I couldn't have asked for a better florist than Kristen! I have to admit that I didn't have a detailed or clear vision of what I wanted before I met with Kristen, but she helped me narrow down a vision and theme for the wedding. She sent me ideas on Pinterest boards, I checked out the beautiful floral arrangements in her portfolio on her website, and I swapped photo ideas with her. The bouquets and centerpieces that Kristen delivered to the wedding venue were amazing! The designs were very creative and original. She has a great eye for creating interesting floral arrangements. My bouquet and centerpieces still look and smell great 5 days after the wedding with some watering. Kristen was very prompt in replying to emails. Her pricing was beyond fair. My husband and I first met Kristen at her home to talk about floral arrangements. Her home, inside and out, was straight out of a magazine. I was in awe of her landscaping, and I wish I could decorate my home the way that she does. When we left her home, we saw 2 different birds playing in the bird bath in her front yard. We had never seen actual birds in a bird bath before so we knew that working with Kristen was going to be magical. More...

Kristen from Garden Designs was beyond amazing! I was not a fan of flowers until I had the pleasure of meeting with her for my wedding. She was always professional, easy to contact and got back to us with any questions that we had. When first meeting with her, she came prepared with ideas and although is very knowledgeable in an array of flowers, was willing to research more to make perfection. She made the most beautiful bouquet's and arrangements and was able to make the personal touches I had requested. I received RAVE reviews from family and friends about the arrangements and how beautifully unique they were. From personal experience, I do not hear of the florist receiving wonderful compliments equal to the other vendors, but Kristen accomplished it. On top of her being beyond amazing, her prices are extremely good. I plan on her using her in the future for anything and will happily recommend Kristen to others. More...

I don't think I can say enough great things about Kristen! She was wonderful!! I actually felt sad when my wedding was over, because I felt a bond with her! When I met her for our initial consultation, I knew she was the perfect florist for my wedding flowers. She is so talented and truly is an artist! I was looking for an antique, romantic feel- and not only did she create my dream centerpieces, but she went above and beyond adding details that were literally breathtaking! My bouquet was beautiful- along with the bridesmaid's bouquets. She also worked with my budget and helped me to stay on track. She also gave me ways to stay in my budget and get the most for my price. She was beyond willing to work with me!

She gave GREAT ideas that helped add to the feel of the wedding (for example- adding lace overlays to tables, adding elegant pearls to votive candles and antique vases on the place card table). I can't count how many people complimented the beauty of the centerpieces! She also helped me to stay on track! Without EVER being the slightest bit pushy, she sent friendly reminders that kept me focused without ever having to worry that I was missing a detail. I never had to worry about her not coming through or missing something- she was so on point!

I absolutely LOVE Kristen and recommend her services to ANYONE!

She also sent helpful ideas and suggestions to me throughout my engagement. I really liked that Kristen allowed me to select and purchase my own vases for the centerpieces. I was able to save a lot of money by choosing inexpensive vessels--this was not an option given by any of the other florists that I interviewed. Overall, because of Kristen's experitce and my confidence in her, I was able to cross off "flowers" as something to worry about on the big day, and she did not disappoint, the flowers were LOVELY!

I've been lucky enough to work with Kristen on various projects/corporate fundraisers over the years. Kristen was brought into a (then) recently renovated estate home (the Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA) to decorate for a fundraiser auction. Her work was exquisite - from mantel arrangements to large table displays to smaller bouquets for high-tops, everything was just right.

Because of her reputation, we left it all to Kristen and she got it perfect! The flowers colors were perfect for the season and coordinated well with the decor of Willowdale Estate.

I would recommend Kristen without hesitation to any of my friends, family, and business associates.
