I kept changing my specific vision and they ran with it. One of my favorite creative collaborators and probably the most influential in designing the wedding.

Wow, were do I start. Kim and her team is exceptional!! If I could describe Kim and her team in a few words I would say 1.Professional 2. Excellent Communication 3. Creative 4. Caring.
The flowers shop, or should I say amazing shop has many choices of vases, candle holders and display for backdrops, colors, and options.

Kim and her team went above and beyond. I would highly recommend them and I am looking for an occasion to work with them again :) Our ceremony backdrop was amazing, it was exactly what we wanted and all of the flowers were high quality, bright, and beautiful. Communication was on point at all times- response to emails were quick, if not within hours. Geranium lake went above and beyond to make sure we were happy, this is what I call exceptional customer service.

When we saw the flowers, backdrops and details, we were literally blown away, we loved them. I don't know how else to recommend them. We met with multiple florists, and within 30 minutes of meeting Kim, we knew we could not go with anyone else!! Take my advice and reach out to them!

I used Geranium Lake Flowers for my wedding and I could not be any happier with the level of service and the quality of the flowers!! When I first spoke with Kim over the phone, I knew I had to use her for my wedding. She was so incredibly knowledgable about the flowers and what we would need for our wedding- she asked questions I never would have thought of! We had a meeting at her studio space and she had perfectly nailed my wedding vision. It was so nice to know I didn't have to worry about the flowers the day of because I knew Kim had it covered. I would not hesitate to use Geranium Lake Flowers for any future event!!! More...

I bought a custom bouquet for my moms birthday. The arrangement they put together for $40 was exactly what I wanted and so pretty. I asked for unusual flowers and a creative arrangement and they definitely delivered! They also did this in very short notice. More...

Kim and team were phenomenal throughout the entire wedding process. They were recommended by our best friends who used germanium lake for their wedding a few years back. When we met with Kim she was very enthusiastic and made us feel comfortable that our vision would come to life. They also do the design for centerpieces which is a nice touch compared to getting rentals and having to come up with a display on your own. She even allowed me to call her the week of to clarify certain color combinations. Then when she arrived the morning of the wedding to deliver the florals, she said she'd had nightmares about not having enough of a color I had stressed and went to the local market early that morning to fix that. And they were TO DIE FOR.  So incredibly gorgeous, exactly what I had imagined, which is really something since I'm not the type to rave over flowers.I am so so thankful she had that concern to get more flowers. Kim and team truly are the meaning of customer service and satisfaction. They treat you like people rather than just another customer. I wish I had another event we could use then for already!

What an amazing team! The amount of professionalism, courteousness and friendliness displayed, was second to none. Geranium Lake Flowers allowed us to only have to pay attention to us, and not think about the wedding itself. And we’re very grateful for that. Great work, by a great team, allowed us to have a perfect day! More...

Kim did the flowers for my daughter's wedding in Cannon Beach and she was our day of coordinator.  The bouquets were simply stunning and the arrangements, especially the ceremony arbor, were absolutely incredible. Not only does Kim know her flowers, she knows brides and how to work with other vendors, the bridal party, and guests! The floral arrangements were some of the most gorgeous I've ever seen and Kim and her team were willing to work with my daughter's vision to create something truly magical. She made dreams come true and I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting something extraordinary! More...

The staff at Geranium Lake Flowers were so so wonderful to work with. They made the most beautiful arrangements for my wedding day. I wanted to go with very textural flowers to go with my mountain wedding and the pulled it off without a hitch! They staff were very open to any critiques and they answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease about my choices. I knew they were the florist for me the second I sat down with Malia during my consultation. They even delivered my flowers to my venue an hour outside of Portland! I would highly recommend them for any wedding or event!! More...

We used Geranium Lake as our wedding florist and they were hands down the best vendor decision we made for the entire wedding -- so much so that I felt the need to open a Yelp account so that I could properly write a review for them. Kim and her team delivered the most amazing floral arrangements and truly made my vision come to life. Living in New York, much of the work we did together had to be done over the phone and by email, and yet Kim listened to every detail and went above and beyond to make sure the end result was even more spectacular than what I had envisioned. She was also extremely helpful and thoughtful in providing us with her professional views on how to best utilize the space at our venue since she had done many events there before. I found myself seeking out her expertise over and over again as she willingly shared her knowledge and advice on everything from floor plan ideas to centerpieces, enabling us to accomplish the "wow" factor we wanted for our wedding. Ultimately, all of those conversations paid off as every single one of our guests (men and women included!) marveled at her work. Moreover, as the bride, I have to say my bouquet was the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen and that was all thanks to Kim as I know she went out of her way to find stunning lush white peonies especially for me. Kim is a truly a creative genius when it comes to flowers and room aesthetics and I cannot emphasize enough how truly appreciative and happy we are that we had the pleasure of working with Kim and Geranium Lake. If you are debating a florist for your wedding or next big event or even if you are just looking for a beautiful arrangement, look no further than Geranium Lake - they will not disappoint! More...

We couldn’t have been more happy. Everything was absolutely perfect. Kim was able to effortlessly translate a few adjectives and photos into exactly what my daughter wanted. For an August wedding, the peonies are out of season. However, this is a favorite flower of my daughter’s. She mentioned that peonies were her favorite, and they made the effort to find them in just the right shade of pale pink she envisioned for her bouquet. Each piece was a work of art from the bouquet, to the chuppah, her hairpiece, and the groom’s boutonnieres. Everyone is easy to work with and the communication was outstanding. The delivery of all the flowers to various places reduced the stress and everything fell into place, beautifully. Highly recommend Geranium Lake Flowers. Thank you, Kim. More...

Kim Foren and Geranium Lake Flowers are FANTASTIC!!

We live in NY and Kim did the flowers for our wedding in May 2017. Even though we weren't close we were able to skype to go over everything. We always felt like we are included in everything. She was able to take our ideas and vision and bring it to fruition. It was truly breathtaking!! Our guests are still talking about the florals 5 months later.

We absolutely recommend Geranium Lake Flowers for ANY event need! You wont find a better florist

Kim was amazing! Truly saw my vision for our wedding day and we couldn't be more pleased! She listened to our every wants and needs and she really came through on our big day! The floral arrangements were STUNNING and we received so many compliments from our guests. It's always fun working with vendors who truly love what they do, and Geranium Lake was nothing short of amazing.
I think of myself as a floral enthusiast, and Kim knew exactly what I wanted, the color palette, and the theme of our wedding. Cannot recommend Geranium Lake enough! :)

Kim was great. She created a magical ambiance in an outdoor dinner under the stars. Her ideas around details like the flower girls gathering basket which was perfect! The lanterns with loose flowers and all the candles were amazing! We paired the flowers that she prepared with planted baskets to keep and share and they really worked together. More...

We truly couldn't have been any more pleased with the way our wedding day flowers turned out. In fact, the work that Kim and her team did was beyond what I had ever imagined. I can recall just gasping at how pretty it all was, and how true to us it felt.

At times, the vision I had had was hard to express, and yet, Kim seemed to breathe life into it in a very beautiful and easy way. We had several conversations during the planning phases, some of which I forgot, and then on the wedding day I was shocked at the way she incorporated every little detail in, and even added elements to make it a bit more magical. Kim didn't force her own personality into it in an unnatural way, but instead found a way to pull it all together --
while always respecting the ideas we had along the way.

I really can't stop singing the praises of Geranium Lake. They worked within our budget, and never made us feel pressured to do more (as with so many things in the wedding vendor world). On occasion she even shared a bit of her wedding planning wisdom, which was welcomed.

Kim really is the Goddess of Flowers, and you wouldn't be let down if you worked with her for any occasion. If you're looking for a little Magic and Creativity, she is your woman.

Geranium Lake completely exceeded all our expectations and we highly recommend them! They provided all the florals to our wedding and we couldn’t have made a better choice. Best of all, they’re prices were more than reasonable.

Kim Foren and her staff were wonderful to work with start to finish. Kim had great communication with us throughout the whole process and was always available to answer every question. We felt no pressure at all during our sessions and she was so genuine. Kim wanted to give us her best and she fulfilled her commitment!

Kim was able to take everything we had envisioned on our Pinterest and turn that dream into a reality. It was so stress free, which was a breath of fresh air with everything we had on our plate. When we asked her to incorporate tweedia and stephanotis, she was more than accommodating. She didn’t even mind when we wanted to make a few last minute additions.

On the big day, her staff showed very early during our wedding day to make sure everything was prepared and arranged perfectly. Everything from the floral pattern on the aisle to the wedding bouquet were remarkable. At the end they provided a cleanup service which was one less thing to worry about.

We took most of the florals home since it would’ve been such a waste to throw them away. The flowers we took home lasted for weeks, which is a testament of how fresh everything was. If I ever have any other floral needs I’ll be definitely giving Kim and Geranium Lake a call! THANK YOU!

Geranium Lake did a fantastic job with our wedding flowers. We walked into their store only planning on getting an idea of what it would cost and ended up booking our wedding flowers with them. It was surprisingly affordable. Kim Foren and her staff designed some of the most amazing flower arrangements and bouquets. The boutonnieres and corsages were works of art. I'm very happy we decided to hire Geranium Lake to design our wedding flowers as they helped make the day truly special, elegant and memorable. More...

For my small October wedding, I ordered a bouquet and two corsages to be delivered to SW Portland. One bouquet and one corsage arrived. I gave Kim a call on her cellphone about the missing corsage, and, despite the Portland marathon going on, she personally delivered another corsage within the hour after I called. The flowers were amazing and exactly what I wanted, and I really appreciated Kim's willingness to come out on a very busy day to make sure I had all of the flowers I needed. More...

So I am from Austin Texas and we planned our destination wedding in Portland. We had a huge wedding planned in Austin but after the unexpected passing of my sister in law in February made the last minute change to Portland. We were recommended to geranium when we booked our venue at Hotel Monaco, and let me tell you they did not disappoint. I was so worried about not being able to be there in person to talk about flowers, but the multiple phone calls and emails were super easy and they captured my vision PERFECTLY!

After a long discussion on the phone and photos from Pinterest they took what I had in mind and made it a millions times better! When we went to look at the flowers the day before the wedding my girlfriend even said my flowers were definitely going to be on Pinterest! I was blown away by my bouquet and the flower crown they made for my niece who was the flower girl. They made a beautiful garland to go around the redwood deck. They also made a stunning arrangement that went on our cake table.

They answered any concerns I had and delivered the flowers to our hotel and I didn't have to worry about a thing. I am so pleased with their customer service, the arrangements and everything about them. I would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of getting married in Portland. With them you don't have to worry about a thing! Thank you for the stunning flowers it was everything and more!

Kim and her amazing ladies at Geranium Lake are outstanding!! From consultation, to setting up, to her aesthetics, we had the best experience with her. All our guests were raving about our arbor flowers and the centerpieces - we asked for "simple stems in a mason jar" and she wow'd everyone with gorgeous peonies, lupines, wildflowers, and such textured greenery. You will not be disappointed with her creativity!! More...

Kim, the owner is phenomenal. We wanted a garden theme with candles and the room far exceeded our expectations. She did the flowers for our cake to match my bouquet. I also have a disabled sister that needed to be in a separate room and she made her room match the main reception. I also hired her daughter to help with my sister during the wedding and then tasks afterwards to help us mail our wedding items home. I recommend Geranium Lake Flowers without hesitation! More...

Geranium Lake Florist was the perfect choice for our wedding day! They are very professional and produce beautiful products - just visit their shop and you will instantly see the creative and stunning work they do. I loved that I was able to be more involved in some of the decisions that meant more to me than others when it came to decorations. The week of my wedding, they even let me come into the shop and look at all of the flowers that had arrived for our wedding. I got to help hand-pick the arrangement for my own bridal bouquet, and that was such a fun treat. Everyone I worked with was also incredibly flexible with my ideas, which was very helpful since we were planning the wedding from a distance. Being able to make some last minute moves/alterations with the items we ordered was clutch since we hadn't been to the venue in the months leading up to the wedding. Overall, I would highly recommend Geranium Lake Florist for a wedding -- they're the perfect company that allows you to be as involved as you wish but also trustworthy enough to be able to sit back and be hands off because they always produce amazing products that align with your vision for the big day.

Gardenias are hard to find.  A competitor (THANK YOU LUBLINER !) introduced me to Geranium Lake when I could not find a gardenia corsage.  Hannah and Kim were incredible! They had no gardenias available on short notice and I HAD TO have the corsage in less than 48 hours...Undaunted, Kim  personally visited a local grower, selected and harvested two (2) blooms, brought them to the shop, crafted a Gorgeous Corsage with a Sterling (purple) Rose, and had it for me to pick up in a 24 hour time frame.  My jaw dropped at the price: $5 LESS THAN any other retailer I spoke to, and was turned down by, before I found GERANIUM LAKE!Wowee Howee I am impressed!  PS.  I disagree with the reviewer who indicated they were "Pricey"...I think I got MORE THAN I PAID FOR in service, quality and attitude!

When I first started planning my wedding, I had no idea what I was doing. Not only had my fiance and I just moved to Portland from New Mexico (can you say, culture shock?), I was also simply not somebody who sat around planning for 'my big day' my whole life, so I literally didn't know whether to start with the cake or the dress! However, I knew I wanted breathtaking flowers, so directly after solidifying my dream venue, I set out in search of the perfect florist. As luck would have it, I quickly found myself at Geranium Lake speaking with Kim Foren. What was initially outstanding for me about GL, is that I knew I would not have to buy my own decorations (only to have to then figure out where to put them afterward...), as GL is not only a flower shop, but also a wedding decor shop. Ultimately, they rented us our chairs, the beautiful vases, some candelabras, etc., and the flowers were as romantic and breathtaking as I had so highly been hoping! I think, due to having frequently frequented Pinterest, it was pretty clear to Kim that my ideas were all over the map, but she very patiently helped me hone in on exactly what my true preferences were, and at the end of the day, she and her lovely crew put said ideas into motion thereby creating the most lovely ceremony and reception spaces I have ever seen (obviously I am a little biased). Everything was literally PERFECT, and my husband and I barely lifted a finger! For a small fee, she even stayed by my side through the evening, as my day-of wedding coordinator, and dutifully helped us stay on our rather tight time schedule! Did I mention that we would not have had our also amazing wedding cake if not for Kim?! Well folks, the list goes on and on- but, in short, Geranium Lake is fully responsible for our eerily flawless wedding day, and for this, there are simply not sufficient words to express our joy and gratitude! Thank you, thank you! Those looking for a florist and a little direction- look no further, and good luck! More...

Kim and the staff were so helpful! I am still getting compliments on how beautiful my flowers looked! My bridal bouquet was breathtaking, and Kim delivered it to my hotel the morning of, herself. GL also provided the table linens, chargers, and all vases. I loved the final result, and consultations before hand made me feel so comfortable. Thank you, Kim and team! More...

We chose Geranium Lake Flowers based on seeing the artistry of the floral work the company produced. After meeting with Kim, the owner, we found the business could help with a lot more. We ended up going with flowers, table linens, candle lighting and other decorative linens such as for the stage and hiding rooftop AC units. We had an idea of what we wanted; a theme and colors, but gave some creative license. We were not disappointed. Everything was decorated beautifully and we were so grateful for the assistance in that arena. More...

I walk by this place every day and their lovely ever changing display catches my eye every time. You can expect high quality plants and beautiful flowers from this place. I bought a big pot of hydrangeas and is very satisfied on how good and healthy this plant really is compared to anywhere else I could find. You can also order off their catalog if you don't see it in their store. Service is professional and friendly. Price can be a bit higher, but you know it includes quality. The pop-up sales and fun events keeps this place exciting. Get on their email list :) More...

My bouquet, my groom's boutonniere and our party décor was provided by Geranium Lake. The flowers were gorgeous and beautifully incorporated our gold/champagne theme. Kim was incredibly helpful with the décor ideas. Everything was delivered at the right time, at the right place. Kim stayed in touch, sent helpful reminders and was always available for follow-up questions. Working with Geranium lake was one of my favorite experiences in the wedding-planning process. More...

Kim was fantastic! We had our consultation meeting recently, and I couldn't believe how creative and open to "quirky" ideas she was. I'm a strange individual, so my desires for wedding planning are a bit odd, but she hopped right on board, and I'm so excited to work with her! More...

I must say Geranium Lake flowers never lets me down!  I live out of town and call them every year on my mom's birthday for an arrangement.  Needless to say they always go above and beyond even if I need something the same day. The flowers are beautiful and my mom could not be happier!  Thank you!Jason Dedrick More...

If there is anyone who can make your vision come true with beautiful colors, textures, and décor, Kim is it!  I came to Kim with an abstract wedding idea that perplexed others. Kim knew exactly how to make my vision come to life in a tasteful and classy way. Using exotic flowers to make beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres, constructing ornate place settings and using a variety of objects and fabrics to bring the concept to life are just a few of Kim's specialties.  Also worth mentioning, and somewhat unique, Kim doubles as an excellent wedding coordinator/ director combining excellent interpersonal skills with a take charge attitude.  A definite plus for those of you who have friends and family that are easily distracted.  I would recommend Kim to anyone looking for a fun, reliable and helpful wedding planner/ coordinator/ director/ florist and visionary!

Beautiful flowers!

I went in not knowing exactly what I wanted but Kim took the time to review my pinterest page with me to come up with a plan. She had so many great ideas and immediately knew what I wanted before I even realized what I wanted. She worked with my budget and produced beautiful arrangements along with gorgeous candles of all different sizes and in various containers. Kim has great vision and style! We were all very happy with how everything turned out! More...

I scoured to find a more artistic florist. I wanted unusual flowers, modern aesthetic. Kim at Geranium Lake is so creative. She can do EVERYTHING from traditional to more obscure. I had giant proteas with smaller arrangements and it was gorgeous! My bouquet was exquisite! She understood my direction like no one else did. They are very professional and very flexible. We had to postpone our wedding and she did whatever needed to be done. She was very thorough - what we liked, didn't like, aesthetic of our wedding, asked what my husband was wearing, what my wedding dress looked like. We didn't have a color scheme for our wedding but all the colors looked great together without it looking like a rainbow mess. She is VERY good at what she does. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Any future events where we need flowers, she will be my first call. More...

Kim is amazing! She understood the vision for my wedding immediately and pulled out my favorite flowers to accent the floral arrangements. I trusted her - and because I was busy planning everything else - allowed her to be creative and come up with the floral concept based on my original vision. The final result was unbelievable! Kim was able to quickly make changes that I requested - just one or two flowers - and the final result was perfect!

My wedding concept was unique and my vision was specific, but Kim and the team at Geranium Lake were practically psychic in creating the floral arrangements. The final result was gorgeous! Thank you Kim and Geranium Lake for helping make my wedding day magical!

I was so surprised to receive periodic pictures & updates via text as the staff at Geranium busily brought my dream ceremony to life. Everyone commented on the elegant designs & extra touches and in truth, they were all Geraniums ideas! I couldn't be happier with their service nor their work. Fabulous all the way around! More...

My first experience with Geranium Lake was a few years ago when my best friend sent me flowers for my birthday....the arrangement that showed up was not like anything I'd ever seen - I loved getting something other than a bunch of flowers in a standard glass vase.  Since then I have used their services a few times myself.  Is it more expensive than other places?  Possibly...Do you like to impress the people you send flowers to?  Of course....Is it worth paying a little more to get something that people won't expect and feel like maybe you put a little extra effort into?  Absolutely!On another note, I'm on the board of a local non-profit organization and one thing Geranium Lake does is help non-profits with their floral arrangements for events.  I contacted them and set up a meeting and gave them my budget....I figured there was no way they would take me seriously.  Not only did they take me seriously, they worked with my tiny budget and let us come in and do the arrangements (with help of a staff member) and helped make our event a success!  I have had nothing but pleasant interactions with all of the staff members and owner of this business and will continue to support them.

Kim made the two altar arrangements and my bridal bouquet for my wedding this weekend. Her prices are a bit high, but they are within the same price range I was quoted by other florists. And I really, truly believe this is a case of, "you get what you pay for". I was thrilled with my arrangements and bouquet. I live in California and did not have a chance to consult with Kim or her team in person. But when the flowers were delivered it was obvious she had listened to every word I told her on the phone and that she had used the reference images I emailed her as inspiration. I felt my flowers were unique to me and also fit the venue perfectly (Pazzo Ristorante's wine Cellar in Hotel Vintage Plaza). I was extremely pleased with the quality and beauty of my flowers!

You pay a premium here. Let's start with that. You are however buying premium products. Every single arrangement I've ever had them do has been met with praise. No the typical "Oh these are nice flowers" but more along the lines of "Wow. Where did you get these?!?!" What I usually do is walk in with a dollar amount in mind and have them create something based on the occasion and they've always delivered. The quality of their flowers cannot be beat. Every day they bloom more and keep recreating themselves in to something new. Absolutely beauitful. More...

I have been a customer of Geranium Lake flowers for over 15 years.  I am an Interior Designer and VERY PICKY about what I want my clients, friends and family members to receive.  This is not an FTD Florist, this is not your run of the mill flower shop.  I never spend less than $100 on an arrangement..  I always have a very definite idea about color, size, style of the arrangements that I order.  I am not easy to work with, I always ask what flowers are available and give explicit instructions about how the arrangement should look.  Never once in all this time has anyone at Geranium Lake ever given me anything but stellar service.  I will say that I have never met the owner, but I have never needed to - her employees are fantastic!The floral arrangements that I have commissioned have been works of art and to this day anyone that has received one still talks about it.  I send my Mother-in-law at least 2 a year and she is always impressed (as well as her Portland Garden Club friends) by the beauty of the flowers.  I would not hesitate to use GLF for any event, large or small.

From our first meeting, Kim's talent instantly showed through and we knew we needed her for more than just her floral talent. She helped us with the wedding design, rentals, and day of coordinating BEYOND the GORGEOUS flowers. One of the coolest parts of working with Kim and Geranium Lake was that she is a great listener and really studies what your vision is. From viewing my pinterest boards, to table mock ups at her store-she not only nailed down exactly what I wanted, but brought forth a fun and creative flair. I was so impressed by that because I didn't want my wedding to look typical, but have a lot of personalized and unique parts woven in. Kim did that and went above and beyond to make my day an absolute dream. Her and her team are EXTREMELY organized and responsive too, which is very important for planning a wedding. She had an ongoing document of inspiration photos, and every single detail written throughout the whole ceremony and day from the timeline- from the flowers to every single design detail. Finally, Kim is just a really great person and so much fun and easy to work with. Her work ethic is insane and she truly makes her clients feel like you are her number 1 priority even though you know she's doing many other things. Thank you so much Kim and Geranium Lake's for your AMAZING work. I HIGHLY recommend them for any bride's floral, design, and coordination needs. More...

I am so grateful that I was referred to Kim and Geranium Lake. First of all, Kim knew right where to start; Pinterest. Our first meeting, she pulled up my pinterest on a huge computer screen and we talked through every detail of my decor. We came up with a few phrases to capture the day; Vintage, Romantic, Gathered bouquets, and Neutral colors. Our next meeting was spent walking around pulling flowers and assembling a sample bridal bouquet. We exchanged numerous emails about budget and general ideas and Kim was consistently responsive and patient. I was 100% confident letting Kim take over and make all the final decisions and the end product was even more beautiful than I hoped! I was stunned how she captured my vision and how the flowers truly tied the event together. I was pleased, relieved, excited, and utterly happy with every aspect of Geranium Lake and their floral design.

Thank you!!

Kim and her crew from Geranium Lakes did a tremendous job for my wedding weekend! She handled the flowers for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding, all decor elements, lighting and day of planning. Talk about superwoman!

I found that I instantly connected with Kim during our first phone interview when we discussed the vision for the wedding. She continued to understand what I wanted and offered up practical and beautiful solutions for our day through out the entire process. I honestly felt by the time we got into our wedding day, that she was a friend helping out rather than a hired vendor. She kept everyone under control, kept us on schedule as much as possible and never seemed stressed out, which was a greatly enabled me to enjoy our day.

I highly recommend Kim and her team and wish I could get married all over again to have the opportunity to work with her.

I knew that I would eventually hire Geranium Lake as my wedding florist when I saw a stunning valentine's day arrangement at my work. Four years later, Geranium Lake did not disappoint at my wedding. Kim figured out a way to hang over 4000 origami cranes in a ballroom to create a chandelier effect that was stunning. We gave Kim a piece of Japanese fabric as inspiration for the event and she created a room that was beyond my imagination. The flowers were bright and beautiful, matching the fabric inspiration, and setting off the bridesmaid dresses perfectly. Kim is so much more than a florist. Her team really are event designers and the results were stunning. Thank you so much Kim and your amazing team at Geranium Lake. My mom and I loved working with you. More...

I would recommend Kim to anyone who is planning a special event and is seeking advice on decorating and floral ideas. Kim is one of the most creative individuals I have met. She is generous with her time and is quick to share her ideas to enhance the decor for an event. Kim is reliable and returns phone calls and email inquiries. She is also sensitive to budgets and will help craft elegant floral arrangements with seasonal flowers. After my daughter's wedding, I received comments from several guests regarding the floral arrangements and the decor at the church and reception venue. Different types of flowers in lush, bright colors were intermingled. Over the period of months, as we were planning the wedding and reception, I had the opportunity to get to know Kim. I trusted her judgement and knew she would do a beautiful job with the decor. More...

Prices are a little high, but the quality and creativity is definitely worth it. I wouldn't have changed a thing! More...

When there were questions about color coordination, Kim was very patient and helpful. When we asked for suggestions, she came up with great ones. She followed through to the day after coordination of taking the flowers to a next-day brunch and then to charitable spot of our choice. The service was wonderful, and the beauty of the event was evident to all. Great job, Kim! More...

Kim Foren of Geranium Lake provided flowers for our wedding. Not only was she as professional and reliable as she was creative, but she also made the day visually memorable and stress-free. We loved her ideas for flowers and wedding-day decor, and her wonderfully inventive and creative suggestions that were always in line with our own taste.

With amazing attention to detail, knowledge of her business and familiarity with local providers and resources, she made our wedding EXACTLY what she wanted. By handling so many details (and thinking of things that we hadn't even thought of well in advance), our Big Day was an exceptionally beautiful, happy and carefree day. I highly recommend Kim and Geranium Lake!

Kim and Geranium Lake just did flowers for my wedding and I couldn't be happier with their service and the final results. I went to another florist for a consultation (who ended up quoting me exactly around the same price as Kim, so I didn't find her to be excessively expensive), and while they were nice and had a pretty portfolio, there was no connection like I felt with Kim.  It was obvious right away that Kim wanted to know about me and what I like in order to get an idea of my style all before we started talking about specific flowers.  Within 15 minutes Kim was making suggestions that felt tailored specifically for me,  "You'd probably like something like this?" and she was always right!  She also made the whole process very easy and fun, which was good since I went in with very little idea about what I wanted for my wedding.  I even threw her a curve ball and changed my mind on about 80% of my flowers a month before my wedding and Kim was extremely nice and accommodating about this. As we got closer to the wedding I just let Kim take creative control of the details because I felt extremely comfortable in her judgement and decisions.  She did a beautiful job, I had tons of compliments on the gorgeous flower arrangements and I had the most beautiful bouquet I had ever seen.  If I ever need to order flowers for another event I wouldn't consider using anyone but Kim and Geranium Lake.

I have nothing but great things to say about Kim and her team at Geranium Lakes! I think when it came to florists, I met with more florists than any other type of wedding vendor because I just couldn't find one that really nailed down what I wanted exactly. I also hesitate to just label Geranium Lakes a 'florist' because they go above and beyond just the flowers! Upon my first meeting with Kim, I felt like she instantly knew what I wanted with everything in the flowers, the decor, details and just the overall look and feel that I wanted. I kept telling her she was 'in my head' because I felt like I didn't give much direction, but it was like she already knew what I wanted!

Needless to say, our arrangements and decorations were stunning and we received many compliments throughout the evening. The birch tree centerpieces were a hit! I especially loved my bouquet-which included peonies (my favorite flower), which I've heard are out of season in September too, so it was such a treat to have them included! I just wish I didn't lose it! Too much fun at the wedding, I guess!

I also appreciated the quick responses to emails, questions, and phone calls. Kim was always very prompt in getting back to me with any inquiries I had. I hope I get the chance to work with Geranium Lakes again someday and I will recommend them to everyone!

Gosh! What to say about Kim and the folks at Geranium Lakes! I recently was married and I might not have done so, had it not been for Kim Foren & Geranium Lakes. They were the very first vendor that I hired, and helped to set the whole tone for my event.

Kim was totally open to my hair-brained ideas about decor and helped create a stunning altar backdrop piece made of paper flowers that was absolutely perfect for our wedding. Kim was able to take my scattered vision of "earthy" mixed with "sophisticated" and also "relaxed" and actually made a beautiful floral and decor design that totally captured my vision exactly.

Due to a lack of "same page-edness" with my wedding planner, I made the decision to fire her less than a week before my wedding, and Kim totally stepped up to help me. She coordinated the day-of proceedings and pulled all of my haphazard vendors into one smooth-running wedding machine! (Also, Kim seems to know everybody in Portland, and has great working relationships with probably any vendor you already have. Believe me, this is a serious asset. Other vendors genuinely like working with Kim and that creates an atmosphere of goodwill and ease, which, now that I am on the other side of my wedding, I can tell you that having a little peace amongst your people helps you have peace amongst yourself, if that makes any sense. Anyway,) She pulled my wedding out of the fire and helped me turn it into the most beautiful and personal event I have ever seen.

She saved me thousands of dollars by coming up with an alternative to expensive tent rentals. She added a shade of sophistication and yet also a dash of earthy-ness by suggesting wooden chairs and beautiful birch chargers. My Bouquet and boutonnieres were magazine quality and as quirky and individual as the people who wore them. I gave her a couple of boxes of books and a few weird odds and ends, and in minutes she turned it into a fabulous guest table that looked like I spent months (instead of an hour or so) planning it. The centerpieces for the reception tables were eclectic and simply put, perfect. I gave a few examples and descriptions of things I like (I like my flowers to have weird pods and things that look like they grew underwater on another planet) and Kim & Geranium Lakes found my perfect design approach without me having to hover and correct and stress out and be awful, and that in itself was a gift.

Without any doubt at all, Geranium Lakes is the best florist in Portland. Their new shop & event space is magical. Their staff is so creative and helpful and fun to work with (I

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Kim and Geranium Lake. I went in with really no idea what I wanted other than "bright and colorful." Knowing all of the locations in Portland, Kim can always pull just the right arrangements together. Since my father had passed away years ago, I asked Kim to wrap my wedding bouquet in one of his ties. She said she'd never done that before - you wouldn't know it, as she did a wonderful job to make sure he was with me that day and even included small pieces on my bridesmaids' bouquets. Considering they were my sisters and niece it made their arrangements extremely special to them as well. And they've dried beautifully.

Best of all, Kim does amazing things on a small budget. She's about the only florist I know who may recommend cutting down your order. I really appreciated that!

Finally, Kim herself delivered the flowers to my hotel room. She really goes above and beyond. And let's not forget, this is a woman who has been on the Today Show!!

I'd love to have another big event if for no other reason than to have another round of Geranium Lake flowers!!

Kim and her staff at Geranium Lake Flowers worked on my wedding this summer. They got everything just right! The table arrangements were classic and beautiful for my outdoor summer wedding. And my bouquet was so lovely -- it was the perfect wedding accessory. I was very, very happy with the service and would recommend them to anyone. More...

Kim Foren, of Geranium Lake Flowers, recently provided the design and floral magic for my daughter's Rehearsal celebration and Wedding in Portland. As this was a destination wedding for us, it was crucial to have confidence in her style and product. She graciously earned that and then some.
We met twice prior to the date, and Kim gave us all the time we needed to consult, viewed every photo we brought with us, and we left with a sense of excitement and...relief. She listened. We were able to email and receive quick responses back, make changes and additions when needed, and the final product was simply stunning. She executed every wish my daughter envisioned (even the most challenging) and pulled it all together.
The flowers and design staging were simply spectacular. We received too many compliments from guests to count., and cannot wait to see all of the photos. Our Sincere Thanks to Kim, Patrick, Madeleine, and the many team members at Geranium Lake. Fantastic job!

We used Geranium Lake for our wedding at St. Patrick Catholic Church and our reception at the Benson. Kim was wonderful to work with, listening to our ideas and applying her knowledge. I loved my bouquet and everyone raved about the flower arrangements at the reception. My family and I received many compliments on the flowers. We also used Geranium Lake's lights for up lighting at our reception, which was a great touch that provided a warm look to the room. I look forward to working with Geranium Lake in the future.

Kim's flowers were beautiful, fresh and unusual. She translated everything my daughter & her husband (!) wanted, and was so enthusiastic about our event.

None of us knows anything about flowers, but Kim was able to help us realize the perfect wedding by her thoughtful questions as to style and color preferences, and by showing us photographs of different flowers and arrangements to which we could respond.

I would definitely use her services again for a party. Judy S.

Beautiful flowers. The colors were exactly what I wanted. Kim could not get the peonies I wanted and called to make sure she could use gardenias instead. Of course, you can! The bouquet was beautiful and smelled wonderful. I also requested 3 clusters of flowers to put on the cake and they were beautiful and made the cake even more pretty. I had also neglected to order a Corsage for 1 person and called the morning the flowers were to be picked up to order it and the gal on the phone was very kind and it was ready when flowers were picked up.

Geranium Lake Flowers is a premier florist in the Portland metro area. The team, led by Kim Foren, is inspiring, charming and very creative. We didn't have to look anywhere but here because they value and price is unbeatable and they do the best work in town. More...

Kim and her team at Geranium Lake are the best.
B-E-S-T.
You will not be disappointed.
Amazing.

Go to Geranium Lake if you are interested in commissioning an artist to create a masterpiece! That is exactly how I felt about my experience working with Kim. I still can't believe how beautiful she made our wedding. I provided her with a general idea of our (my!) wedding style and just let her roll with it. It's been about 6 months since the big day and when I look at our pictures I am in awe of how absolutely beautiful she made everything.

I highly recommend Geranium Lake.

Kim and her team at Geranium Lake are the best. B-E-S-T.You will not be disappointed. Amazing. Yes, as another reviewer said, Geranium Lake isn't exactly a budget shop. But you don't go to Geranium Lake because you're trying to save money; you go because you are commissioning an artist to create a masterpiece! That is exactly how I felt about my experience working with Kim. I still can't believe how beautiful she made our wedding. I provided her with a general idea of our (my!) wedding style and just let her roll with it.

I knew the minute I met Kim this was the florist for me. I admired Kim's strong spirit and her expertise. In the midst of so many wedding decisions to make, it was wonderful to have a professional artist to guide me through this journey. Her taste is exceptional and you dont want anything less for your special day. Her creativity amazed us and did not go over our budget. On our wedding day, I looked out and my jaw dropped in awe. Geraniums flowers were even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. We were so impressed and everyone still talks about it being one of the most beautiful weddings ever! Thanks Geranium Lake More...

Kim Floren and team did an amazing job at my wedding. I had previously booked with another vendor for flowers which didn't work out. Kim took us on and immediatly created a vision for our rehearsal dinner and our wedding day which was perfect. The flowers were romantic, and grand. I recieved, and still am recieving compliments from guests saying that the flowers were the most beautiful they have ever seen. As a bride nothing could make you happier! The best part about working with Kim is that she is a true artist, you can trust that her fabulous and creative vision will translate into something that is perfect for your day. My favorite thing about the wedding, besides the groom :), was the flowers...and I have Kim to thank for that. Kim is the best and I will sing her praises to everyone who is planning a wedding!

Kim was very down to earth and helped us narrow down exactly what we wanted. She not only helped in the overall design throughout the months, but she was a support when I was stressed and shared her lunch with me when I was hungry =). Many people said that our wedding was the nicest they have ever attended, and Kim contributed to this result. More...

I adore Kim and her staff at Geranium Lake Flowers. After seeing their work at a friends wedding, I had to have them do our wedding. I found Kim incredibly approachable, responsive and artistically brilliant. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted but at our first meeting, she helped organize my thoughts and offered excellent suggestions. I was working within a strict budget and Kim was able to stay under my budget without sacrificing quality. On the day of my wedding I was overwhelmed with joy when I saw the decor for the ceremony and reception rooms and the gorgeous arrangement of flowers. Every guest commented on how perfect the decor was and I owe it all to Geranium Lake! I don't think I've ever seen my mother so amazed. Their services extend further than just flowers. Kim arranged for the lighting package and table assignemts which were both to die for. I will be forever grateful for Kim and her team for making my day so memorable and for being supportive and reassuring every step of the planning process. More...

We were so pleased. We was so impressed by how it took really minimal direction and input to get exactly what we wanted. I'm not a flower-guru, but Kim really helped me tease out what I was looking for. The whole process was so much easier than I anticipated and the flowers were just stunning. We had several guests who commented that they thought they might have been the most beautiful flowers they'd ever seen at a wedding---we certainly thought so! More...

Kim (owner) is fantastic. So little work on my end to communicate my vision for our wedding. She didn't do exactly what i asked :) but it still looked stunning. You would be lucky to have all of your vendors do the job Kim did. Of all the folks we chose to work with, Kim was one of the best. And let me tell you, find a good vendor (caterer, bridal consultant, photographer etc.) is very hard to find. The wedding industry is a total racquet - and they just want your money. Kim didn't make me feel that way. More...

Geranium Lake Flowers creates beautiful flower arrangements. For our garden wedding, Geranium Lake was able to be imaginative in making the most gorgeous bouquets I have ever seen! The owner was able to completely capture what we had hoped for our wedding. The flowers were fresh, colorful, unique, and perfect! I could tell that the owner had truly listened to our desires before creating our flowers. We did experience difficulties with the delivery process. Some of the items we ordered were left behind at the store. Geranium Lake did what it could to remedy the situation, and seemed geuinely apologetic. There was stress on our wedding day because of the forgotten items and because only one delivery person was provided, which caused many of our family and friends to help with the heavy lifting to ensure all the flowers went where they belonged. Geranium Lake Flowers creates the most imaginative and most beautiful flower arrangements that are ideal for one's wedding. However, their delivery process needs some improvement. More...

Hmm, I will knock of one star because it is quite expensive (for ptown income levels) but I mean, come on, look at the price before you place your order.I was a temp nearby for a couple months back when I still held out hope of being able to live in portland and get paid well. I saw this place a few times while running errands in big pink. It's small but they have a broad selection and lovely display. They had king protea, the national flower of South Africa, which I thought was cool. They occasionally have sales; I bought a $5 slightly droopy live hyacinth that's still going strong today. My employers got a few bouquets here and they always got rave reviews but yes, they do run  in the $45-$60+ range. They're fairly creative and use really nice local and/or unusual content in their arrangements and sometimes include glass or other types of reusable vases. I never had any issues with extra fees or surprise charges. I also never had any problems with the employees. You can 'create an account' online and then just bill to that credit card when you next place an order -- very convenient for businesses.If you want cheap flowers buy a vase at the bins and some individual cuts at new seasons.

I was cleaning out my wallet earlier and came across a Geranium Lake Flowers business card, so I thought I'd yelp them.I worked a two month temp job in the Bank Tower this summer and got well-acquainted with the Starbucks and yummy salad buffet on the first floor (I really wish I could remember the name of the salad place because it's cheap and really good...it's next to Geranium Lake Flowers if that helps...they have chicken teriyaki too).Anyways, one day I decided to go into Geranium to order my mom some flowers. She had been having a really rough couple of weeks, so I wanted to get something to cheer her up. I didn't have much time to go through and put together something really nice, so I talked with one of the ladies there and asked if she could put something cheerful together for my mom. She was really friendly and totally patient as she listened to me try to explain just what I was looking for. I had a somewhat limited amount of money to spend and, after talking with her a bit, I decided to pay the amount I was comfortable with and trust that she would put together something really nice. My only request: that she include some of the super-cute sunflowers they had all over the shop.Long story short: my mom bawled like a baby when she received a HUGE vase of colorful flowers at work that afternoon. I was so surprised to see how many flowers (and how large of an arrangement and vase) my small/moderate amount of money produced. Shipping was super cheap, so I know that definitely helped, but I was definitely surprised.Overall, I was pretty impressed with the place. I had a really good experience with them and would definitely use them again if I were to end up back at the tower and needing to cheer someone up. More...

Geranium Lake did flowers for my wedding four years ago, and it was magnificent. Worked with us to combine our ideas and their creativity. We have used them ever since for any flower-demanding occassion. Delivery is easy, and their service is great. When they deliver to my wife's workplace, the receptionist always know who the flowers are for because they are always so unique and different! More...

At Geranium Lake, they are floral artists! Colors are bright, arrangements are fresh, unique, and stand out from the crowd. I work across the street so I originally patronized them for convenience. Now I would choose them over another florist any day because of the quality of their work and their great service. You can't go wrong! Gorgeous flowers, skillful and creative designers, great selection, and no matter how busy they are someone will drop everything to help you. Try them! More...
