Frequently Asked Questions
While our high-quality designs look like the real thing, NO: we do not offer fresh floral or plant services. We specialize in permanent (artificial) florals and plants that are "faux real" and last many seasons with easy, minimal care. Many of our bouquets and centerpieces are great for unique gifting and we can ship right to your recipient's door! Read our DISCLAIMER HERE.
"Permanent" botanicals and florals (otherwise referred to as "artificial," or as we like to call them: "faux-real") are perfect for busy people who live life on-the-go but who want beautiful, fresh looking designs to greet them and their guests in their homes, offices, or other favorite spaces... and that also need little maintenance and last through the seasons.
As a family-run operation who started in the fresh floral business with years of growing up in fields and greenhouses, we -know- what fresh stems should look like. Our selections are carefully curated and we only source the highest quality faux stems, flowers, and botanicals that could fool even the most skilled gardeners. Just like the natural seasons, our selections change to reflect what you'd find throughout the year.
Need a specific faux design, stem, or piece? Contact us for a custom design or special order HERE!
You bet! Custom "faux real" floral and plant designs are our signature service and we love to create one-of-a-kind creations for you and your loved ones. CONTACT US to schedule your design appointment. Bring your own container or purchase one from us! READ MORE HERE on how to schedule and prepare for a design consultation appointment.
Please allow 4-7 business days for production (up to 14 days during our busy holiday season) - PLAN AHEAD! Designs that require turnarounds in 72 hours or less will incur additional labor and rush fee charges.
In addition to beautiful "faux-real" floral and plant designs, we specialize in "found goods": salvaged pieces or antiques from our many "pickin trips" -- and sometimes we turn them into unique pieces of art or "up-cycled" functional items for your home!
We also love supporting small business creatives, artists, and artisans and offer unique gifts like jewelry, accessories, home decor, specialty books, artwork, holiday decor, and so much more.
Of course, we do ship! :)

We're happy to help! Sometimes our designs are more popular than we can keep up due to a variety of reasons (usually issues with product delays), so contact us if you see a design you like but it says "Sold Out."
We most likely can create a made-to-order one for you if our product/supply sources are available. Note there may be some small changes or variations from the photos but will still be beautifully hand-crafted with love!
Need multiples of a specific design for a special event or project? We can help with that, too!
Heck yes! Due to the delicate nature of many of our products, we use ground shipping exclusively via UPS for orders on products and designs in our online store and in the shop - no need to pack it up to drive home from your visit to Hilton Head! We ship nationwide.*
