I have used Gathered Stems and am always pleased with their creativity and quality of product. Whenever I give flowers as gifts I almost always get told "your florist is the best I have seen". The people are all exceptionally friendly. I have them also do work in my home with plants, flowers and seasonal decorations. They are real pros and I highly recommend them.

Been using Gathered Stems since they opened and always had great success with their flowers and arrangements. Their designs are creative and their flowers are so fresh, they always last at least a week. Would go anywhere else. Highly recommended!

I have been ordering flowers for friends and customers for years from Gathered Stem. I always receive the highest compliments about the uniqueness of the arrangements. Many people have asked me later where they came from so they can order for someone they know. I've also had 3 silk flower arrangements made for my house and they're just beautiful. My family knows If they want to send me flowers to order them from Gathered Stem.

I order all my flowers for friends and customers from Gathered Stem. They made an arrangement in a wire baby carriage for my daughter's shower. It was so gorgeous my daughter-in-law wanted they same for her shower. Everyone is bowled over by the unique arrangements. They make beautiful silk flower arrangements for decoration too! Wouldn't go anywhere else. Ashley knows exactly what to do every time.

I was so pleased with the altar arrangement you made for our church.  The flowers were fresh and lasted a long time after the ceremony ended reminding us of the beautiful service.  The asymetrical design fit the space visually too.  Thank you for working with me and incorporating my ideas.

Thank you for making the Norooz Gala such a success with your beautiful flowers.  When one entered the ballroom, the beauty and scents of Spring permeated the ambiance...how appropriate considering that the Persian New year is a celebration of Spring.  Thank you for working with us and customizing the flowers to the occasion we were celebrating.

Being in the interior design industry for 20 years I’ve seen a lot of beautiful floral arrangements; but I was surprised and thrilled when I got your latest arrangement with faux feathers and a vase that makes the arrangement a room accessory.

I asked for something funky and got something funky, exciting, beautiful and perfect for the space I requested it for. The coral roses and berries go beautifully with the dark chocolate brown in the faux feathers and original vase. It’s the focal point of the room, absolutely stunning.

Just wanted to say how beautiful we thought all the wedding flowers were this past week end. The space felt like the epitome of Spring thanks in large part to the flowers. I wanted to make particular mention of Sara's bouquet. It was perfect in every detail and an exquisite complement to the bride's overall look. Sara could not have been more pleased with it.
Thank you once again.
Best regards,

The wedding flowers were perfect. The flower choices were exactly what I had imagined. The hot pink roses were a nice touch. The improvised setup at the church for the altar flowers was well done and beautiful. We received so many compliments from our guests! Thank you!
I like the silk flowers at Gathered Stems because they look and feel life like. They don't look cheap or fake. The two matching wreaths and table centerpiece you designed for our house are exactly what I had in mind!
Good morning! I don't normally take time to give feedback about things online but I felt inspired to send some feedback about the video instructions on monkeysee.com.
It was excellent! Thank you for taking the time to do the segment. It was extremely informative and well executed. My eldest son is a senior this year and prom is Saturday night (we live in TX). I am excited to make his girlfriend a small bouquet for the event (I was never a big fan of corsages and think she can dry out the bouquet after the event as a memento) and your instructions on line really helped me to understand how to do it myself.
There is so much negativity abounding in our society and not enough positive. I just wanted to let you know that something you did was helpful
to me and thank you for it.
Have a wonderful day!
