|Do we have to meet in person to work out our floral and
decorating plans for my upcoming event?
No, we do not have to meet in person. Our Shows and Events
account executives frequently work with event coordinators over
the phone and by e-mail. We are able, in this way, to discuss
your plans, exchange information and successfully work out the
May I see a sample of what you're proposing?
We understand that it is sometimes helpful to make a sample
of a proposed arrangement so you can more easily visualize
the concept under consideration. In this case, we are happy
to create the piece for you to see. We can also digitally
photograph it and send it to you by e-mail if you are unable
to see it in person.
I'm not exactly sure what I want. May I come in and see
the flowers and look at your facilities?
Absolutely! We welcome your visit. Simply call to make
an appointment with one of our Shows and Events account executives.
We will arrange a meeting at your convenience and be pleased
to show you our design and greenhouse facilities, our staff,
and our vast array of flowers, green and blooming plants,
trees, and other decorative items.
I have some ideas for my event, but I just don't know
how to organize them. Can you help me?
We certainly can! Tell us your ideas, and our professional
consultants will listen and ask the necessary questions to
help you transform your ideas into viable options about which
you can then make confident and informed decisions. The result
will be a finished, polished presentation of your ideas!
Am I responsible for getting the props back to you after
As a service of convenience to our clients and to help
prevent any accidental loss of product, Viviano Flower Shop
provides staff members who "tear down" the decorations
and pick up the props the day or evening after your event.
My event is scheduled in the middle of winter. Is it still
possible to create a fresh green summer landscape indoors?
Yes, it is! Although evergreen plants naturally go into
a period of dormancy in the winter, we are able to bring them
out of their dormancy in our warm greenhouses before we use
them in your landscape. This brightens their color. We are
also able to secure other shrubs, grass, fencing, flowers,
green and blooming plants, and even a mechanical deer or two
if you wish. Our landscape professionals will arrange everything-the
set up, the tear down and the removal of the display after
Do we rent or buy the plants? May we keep the plants?
We offer most of our plants for use on a rental basis.
By carefully tending them in our greenhouses, we are able
to offer healthy plants to our clients at reduced cost to
them. However, if you prefer to buy and keep the plants then
you may do so. This arrangement must be made with your account
executive at the time you contract your order.
Can you visit our facility to get a better understanding
of our special needs?
Because we understand that each event has its own special
considerations, we are happy to visit your facility or location
to do a site survey in preparation for planning your event.
If necessary, we will fly to your destination. We will document
the perimeters of your event area and specify any special
requirements of your site. Is your site a golf course with
rolling terrain? Is it an indoor exhibition hall where you
want to hang decorations from the ceiling? Do we need to procure
rigging or other specialized equipment to accomplish your
designs? Our Shows and Events professionals pay attention
to the obvious details as well as the smallest ones in surveying
your site and serving your event.
I must use union labor at my event. Are you able to work
with union requirements?
We have extensive experience working with unions and their
guidelines. When union labor is mandatory, we work cooperatively
and in partnership with union personnel to efficiently and
successfully set up your event.
