Website was easy to navigate and picture depicted approximate appearance of arrangement. Although I didn’t see it, the recipient said it was very pretty.

Creative Occasions delivered the most stunning arrangement for my Mom on Mother's day. With the COVID 19 prohibiting me to spend the day with her, I felt her big smile in describing how perfectly fresh and arranged the flowers were with the coordinating card . Thanks to Mark's keen eye for probably 6 + duplicate orders from me, due to a computer glitch, the order went perfectly. No doubt, I am glad I discovered Creative Occasions for my future needs.

What can I say? Y'all are legends. I procrastinate until the last possible day and you saved my behind. Well kind of. Bought flowers for a friend going through a rough time, and she loved them. The poem I wrote was a hit too! She cried (bonus points.) Consider this an invitation to our wedding in 2022. I'm gonna need flowers on New Years eve as well. ps: If I dont marry her (she's way outta my league) I'll still use you guys for future purchases. Good yard! - Beaux

The flowers were fresh and lovely. I was very disappointed with the appearance of the arrangement because the main reason I selected it online is because of the gorgeous palm frond/grass heart in the photo. The delivered arrangement had a wrapped bent wire heart.

Hi Blue! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with my shop. I'm so sorry about the misstep with the "heart" in the design. Unfortunately, we simply ran out of the grass needed to replicate that heart and substituted the wire heart (which we had also featured in another design). I am, however, glad to hear that you were pleased with the arrangement itself and I hope the recipient enjoyed them. Thank you for your business and we look forward to helping you again soon! Mark

Mark and team are AMAZING. I cannot say enough good things about them. They took my vision and truly brought it to life -- from the floral arrangements to the drapery -- it was all perfect. I had a million questions and changed things a million times and it was never an issue. I cannot recommend them enough!

What a surprise to received a beautiful Fall bouquet for my November birthday. The colors remind me of the many orange and red hues of our beautiful Blue Ridge mountains. The flowers have held up well, the roses have opened to their full glory and I have so enjoyed this lovely gift. I am also happy to know of this floral shop for my own future purchases. Thank you.

Mark and team were a delight to work with. They were able to take my extravagant vision and turn it into something just as beautiful, but within my budget. The flowers were fresh and arrangements were just amazing and everything was delivered on time to reduce my stress levels. I thought the prices seemed high, but once I saw how big the bouquets/centerpieces were, I was so glad I chose to go with Mark's ideas. Mark also put up with my constant changes, additions, emails and requests and really made my wedding memorable and beautiful.

Mark Frye at Creative Occassions was exceptional. We had a small wedding in July of this year and the flowers were remarkable. Since it was in a home, the predominant decoration setting the ambience for the occassion we could not have asked for anything better. As we prepared for the wedding Mark listened carefully and offered heartfelt suggestions. In a heartbeat I would go back to Creative Occassions without hesitation. He made the day so special!

I cannot find enough words to thank Mark and Laura for bailing me out in an end of day pinch for a funeral viewing that started in 45min from my call (flowers from the online giant didn't show). She stayed late to create a beautiful large blue and white flower basket to properly represent us as core family for next to the casket. It arrived in about an hour. It was beautiful! Everyone loved it and commented on it. Mark was so kind and understanding and willing to work with me! He also sent me a pic with size relativity so I could rest easy it was accomplished!

Mark was great to work with! The flowers were beautiful and everything that I dreamed that they would be. He took the few ideas that I had and turned them into works of art. I could not have been happier; everything from the centerpieces to the bouquets were picture perfect. I cannot say enough good things about what Mark and his team did for us. Our wedding was beautiful, thanks, in large part, to Creative Occasions.

Mark and his team were a dream to work with. I was an out of town bride, and Mark was able to make time to meet with my fiance and me when we walked into his shop, about five months before the wedding. He listened to our vision, provided suggestions on how to keep costs down, and was responsive to every email and phone call I left. Mark is such a wonderful person, every time we spoke he was excited and happy and genuinely engaged. He was easy to work with, flexible, and turned our crazy ideas into a reality. Thank you Creative Occasions!

Mark at Creative Occasions brought beauty to my wedding day through all the florals. My bridal bouquet was the most beautiful bouquet and totally matched my inspiration! My bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, and family flowers were all stunning. I can't forget about all the center pieces at the reception and the bouquet at the church! All just stunning. My favorite piece (besides my bouquet) was the tall orchid centerpieces! They really were a work of art. I highly recommend working with Mark at Creative Occasions for your wedding! He will make your vision come to life through his work.

The flowers that adorned the tables for my daughter’s wedding reception at the Taubman Museum of Art were beautiful, and the wedding party bouquets were lovely as well. Everyone commented on the beauty of the arrangements with the flowers and colors chosen. When we walked into the Taubman for the reception, the auditorium and atrium looked stunning. We appreciate all that Mark Frye and Creative Occasions did to make the reception the evening of the wedding the couple’s dream.
