Everything you're looking for – I worked with Thomas for my wedding, and he did a magnificent job! The flowers were OUTRAGEOUSLY gorgeous! I can?t say enough about how obsessed my mom and I were with the job he did. It was beyond beautiful. And of course all the guests were extremely impressed. First of all, my bouquet was the most amazing thing ever, and looked so perfect with my dress. His ability to know what will work for your particular event becomes obvious when you see the final outcome. So as a wedding veteran, let me say: do yourself a favor and trust in him! Stress about other stuff; don't stress about this. He listens to what you want and then makes it truly fabulous. When we got to the event site, I was overwhelmed by how sensational the room looked. The colors, the combinations--just beyond expectations, more beautiful than I could have imagined. I am forever grateful to have found Prudence Designs, and will definitely use them for all my future floral needs.
Extraordinary customer service and floral vision!! – As the mother of the bride, I would like to highly recommend Prudence Designs for extraordinary customer service, high quality floral arrangements, and design concepts. From the church to the cocktail hour to the reception, the ambiance captured the emotion and personality of the bride and groom. With so many decisions to make for the wedding, Thomas O'Laughlin of Prudence Designs facilitated the plans with little direction and achieved the most memorable wedding for my daughter. The Prudence design team created the breathtaking atmosphere that family and guests are still raving about!!
Sophistication and Style Always....Prudence Designs has redefined what it means to be a florist.... – Prudence Designs & Events not only provided the flowers and linens for our wedding, they made the wedding. I was not only impressed with the diversity and freshness of the flowers, Prudence Designs helped us create a vision that represented who we are while creating a completely individual wedding ambiance. This vision surpassed any other wedding that I have ever attended, and I am constantly hearing about the floral design each time I see one of the wedding guests. I will never forget how it felt to walk into Kleinhans Music Hall (our reception location), I felt as if I was walking into the most lovely dream. Planning for a wedding is often stressful; however, working with the professionals of Prudence Designs was always enjoyable and easy. I am thankful for the amazing work that they have done for me, and I extend my highest recommendation to anyone planning a wedding in NYC or elsewhere. They have impeccable taste, professionalism, and above all...style!
Prudence pleases with a plethora of petals – UPDATE: Just to be current I revisited my review from a couple of years ago and find my opinion to be unchanged...except perhaps for Arturo's and Grayson's mastery of flower power which is ever increasing. With a consistency that is awe inspiring, they out do even themselves...still.
OLD REVIEW: O.k., the greatest compliment I can give is that I live in Los Angeles and I still use the floral talents of Prudence. If there is anything I can count on these days of ineptitude and compromise, is the skill, the artistry and excellence of Arturo's designs and Grayson's sense of what's needed. If I need a special floral arrangement, I call them and I suggest whoever is reading this do so too. And I may as well take this time to thank Arturo and Grayson for being there when some blossoms will cheer.
great staff, consumer friendly (they do everything), GORGEOUS flowers! – i just had some sent to a funeral parlor. it was noticeably the most beautiful arrangement there. i use prudence for every occassion and am always thrilled. they use fresh, seasonal flower with their own creative touch....absolutely gorgeous. you will not be disappointed.
Best flowers ever – Walking into Prudence Flowers and Design boutique is a fabulous experience foy your eyes, your nose and
and your spirit.
Grayson and Arturo have a special taste for flowers and design, I find it very elegant and vaguely old Europe.
It's something unique in town.
Constant Compliments on our Wedding Flowers – Overall I was impressed and totally satisfied with my experience with Prudence for our wedding. It's obvious that they have a great eye for design. The flowers they use are gorgeous and they have a gift for using just the right touch of color, scale and texture to make the arrangements unique and interesting - regardless of the overall size of the arrangement. The service was friendly and efficient. Especially considering how much (little) guidance I offered, the end result was worth every penny.
Phenomenal Floral Arrangements – I'd like to thank the users who previously and accurately gave Prudence the two thumbs up. Excellent service, elegant and appropriate designs for the occassion and an exceedingly well-priced value!
We've become fast and loyal fans of this shop.
Handsome men with good taste and beautiful flowers--a fabulous combination. – The Scene
You feel welcome the second you walk in to this super-cute Chelsea shop. Creative director Grayson has amazing sky's-the-limit visions coupled with a down-to-earth sense of what's realistic for your event. Arturo, the floral-designing mastermind, lets Grayson pick your brain for preferences while he picks the impeccable blooms to create them. The two are sweet, fun and full of ideas.
Tasteful, timeless and taking a step beyond what you've always dreamed of. Both partners, who also plan entire events, love an element of surprise, and a reception that feels less ceremonial and more like a real live party. Example: A backyard wedding with worldly touches like Moroccan lanterns, rugs, lounging pillows, hand block-printed table runners, lush arrangements and petals and candles afloat in the pool.
Wonderful store!! – Grayson is amazing and friendly! They recently opened up a Venezualan restaraunt next door that is out of this world.
I love having them in the neighborhood.
