“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” – Lao Tzu
Rosemary's Garden Florals was built out of love. Our owner, Rosemary Sammons, first discovered wood florals in 2020 when she began planning her wedding. While creating all the bouquets, accessories, and arrangements for her own wedding, she fell in love with wood florals and what they symbolized to her: florals that would last as long as her love for her husband and his love for her.
In December 2020, Rosemary founded Rosemary's Garden Florals as a small craft business in Winter Haven, Florida, selling magnets and home decor with her painted flowers at craft fairs and farmers markets. As the first florist in her area to bring wood flowers to the market, she delighted local residents with her creations. As she became more confident in her abilities and learned techniques to produce the highest-quality florals, she ventured into the realm of wedding and event florals.
Now in its third year of operation, Rosemary's Garden Florals specializes in customized everlasting wood and real-touch wedding florals, hand-delivering to venues in the state of Florida and securely shipping to clients throughout the United States.

The first step in our creative process is having an online consultation. This special appointment is necessary to ensure that our team can fully understand your needs and answer any questions you have. The online consultation is a short appointment usually only lasting 30 minutes, and is designed to help you decide whether we are the right choice to create your wedding or event floral creations. In order to schedule a consultation, you will need to fill out a short questionnaire that will tell us more about your floral needs, your vision, your budget, and any other preliminary details that we need to know.
If you decide that you would like us to create your wedding or event florals, then we will secure your date with a deposit and schedule an online logistics meeting with our owner and floral artist Rosemary. The logistics meeting is scheduled for one hour, during which Rosemary will collaborate with you to plan the florals of your dreams and provide you with a completed final quote. Once the quote has met your approval, an invoice will be sent to you via email, which must be paid in full 60 days before your desired completion date. The invoice includes all expenses necessary for your order.
Two months before your desired completion date, our team will reach out to schedule an online design meeting. The design meeting will be scheduled for one hour with Rosemary to plan your one-of-a-kind floral suite. Flower styles, greenery/filler types, color scheme, and special touches will all be finalized during this meeting. You will also have the chance to make any revisions to your order, such as adding additional boutonnieres or removing an unneeded centerpiece. Immediately after your design meeting, our team will order all the supplies needed to create your florals.
Depending on the size of your order, you will begin to receive emails with photos of your in-progress florals between one month to two weeks prior to your desired completion date. These photos will show your painted flowers before they are made into arrangements, as well as samples of single arrangements such as a bridesmaid bouquet in order for you to provide approval before we proceed. Once your entire order is complete, you will receive a final photo gallery. Your florals will then be prepared for local delivery to your venue, pickup, or shipping within the continental United States.
Wood flowers from Rosemary's Garden Florals are handcrafted from all-natural renewable wood from the Shola plant, a flowering aquatic. The Shola plant grows to be about six feet tall when mature, and the wood from the Shola plant is one of the lightest woods in the world. Since your florals will be handcrafted from this special material, no two blooms are exactly the same: your wedding arrangements will be exceptionally unique.
Your wood flowers will be hand-painted any color you wish using dip dye, paintbrush, or airbrush with incredible attention to detail. Once your arrangements are finished, they will last a lifetime as long as they are kept in the proper conditions.
To care for your wood creations, keep them indoors except for excursions. Never store them in airtight containers or expose them to moisture. As long as these simple guidelines are followed, you will enjoy your wood florals for a lifetime.
Real-touch florals are the most realistic alternative to perishable flowers and are made to last forever. Real-touch florals are weatherproof, so they may be used for outdoor decor, unlike our wood flowers. Our real-touch flowers are made from high-quality latex, polyurethane, or foam materials. We source all our real-touch flowers from companies located here in the United States.
