It’s been sometime since our last post, but feel free to connect with us on Facebook where all the FUN things are happening like gorgeous wedding pictures of my previous brides and arrangements.
Just the TWO of US” Flower packages:
Above is the first bouquet that I’ve created for my elopement packages.
I’ve had a lot of brides inquire about these packages, and so I’ll be creating set of arrangements that will include different REAL TOUCH TROPICAL FLOWERS.
Most of these packages will only include the bridal bouquet and bout,  but we can always add more items if time permit. 
Updates on Shipment Date:
If you're wedding is in the FALL of 2015 or early 2016, NOW is the perfect time to submit your order form.
If you’re interested in ordering a sample of the flowers before you decide to book, I will be more than happy to assist with that.
Remember, it’s never too early to BOOK YOUR DATE, and if you don't have all your flower details, you can always secure a date with a booking fee of $75.00

Plumeria's Wedding Flower Boutique Reviews, Best Wedding Florists in New York City - 2015 Couples' Choice Award Winner


Hello Beautiful Brides!!
  Happy New Year 2015!!!!!
And look at what the NEW YEAR has welcomed us with.  That’s right we won the 2015 WeddingWire COUPLES’ CHOICE reward.  I am so grateful to be a part of this year and even more excited about create the floral visions for my brides.
2014 was certainly a great year for my family and myself.  Early in the year, my younger sister and I gave birth to beautiful baby boys: Dilan and Jasper, we call them the twin cousins.  We were due a few weeks part, and it just so happened that we gave birth one day apart…. Imagine that, huh.
I was truly a magical moment.  Life after marriage is FILLED with so many memorable moments.  Not in a millions years would I have ever thought of the idea that my sister and I would have children born literally 24 hours apart. But such is the BEAUTY of Life.  It’s a gift that keeps on giving. 
It can get even more exciting as a business owner.  Your personal life can sometime pretty much dictate the direction of your business.  Having a newborn at home, made it a great challenge for me to execute the plans that I had for my business because of so many unexpected events.
However, when your HEART is set on doing your BEST, the good always kind of out ways the bad, and everything works out for the best. It’s also the same thing in planning your MAGICAL WEDDING DAY.  Whether small or big, destination or  local, challenges are inevitable, but overcoming them is what makes the moment even more magical.
I LOVE beging a part of those moments, and as your floral designer, I PROMISE to deliver to you nothing but my very best.  I am presently ACCEPTING orders for the 2015 wedding season. It is very important to BOOK your dates as early as possible.
Placing your order 6-12 months in advance is always a great idea, as it will help eliminate the stress involved in last minute orders.  As always, you can pay a BOOKING FEE of $75.00, if you are not yet sure of the details of your arrangement. 
I am so looking forward to chatting flowers with you ladies, please email me: with your questions and/or concerns.
As always blessed planning,
Sandy Basiten
Happy Thanksgiving My Beautiful Brides!!!
Its been such a long time since my last blog post, and I did not want the year to pass without giving you ladies an update on what’s happening here at Plumerias Wedding Flower Boutique.  Before I go into those details, allow me to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for your loyalty and commitment to creative.
 December 1, 2013 will mark a full year since I took over this business, and I am proud to say that I have had the privilege of creating bouquets for brides all over the global including England and South Africa.  I know that this coming year will be an even bigger success.
As far as the shipment dates goes, I am currently taking orders for 2014 Wedding Season.  If you are interested in getting your flowers created by me please submit your order form as soon as possible.  Please keep in mind that I cannot promise any shipment dates until a deposit is made.
Custom flowers are shipped to brides at least 4-8 weeks before the wedding date.  For example, if your wedding is on January 16, 2014, an ideal shipment date would be at the least December 16, 2013 or earlier. However, this is only if those dates are available.
 In essence, the sooner you submit your order form, the earlier I can give you a shipment date for your custom order.    I am presently working on posting dates for shipment dates for 2014, but in the meantime please feel free to submit you order form and I will reply with a quote and instructions on what follows. 
As always if you need any clarity on shipment dates, please use the “Contact Sandy” link for all your questions.  Again HAPPY THANKSGIVING, and continue to enjoy every step of wedding planning,
With much love and blessings

Hello Beautiful Brides,
It feels like forever since the last time I connected with you ladies to let you know what’s been happening here at Plumerias. Since I am person behind this whole operation, I would like to share with you a lot of pretty AWESOME events that has taken place in my personal life.
Most of you know that I became the new owner of this business in December of 2012. Prior to that, I recently married the love of my life in August of 2012.
Many of you will notice that a lot of unexpected circumstances will enter your life once you are married. The best part about it is that you are not alone.
In February of 2013, my husband and I learned that we were expecting, but unfortunately that pregnancy did not survive and by March we miscarried.
 I was totally devastated, but I had to go on with my life and business responsibilities. I sought the counsel of some close family and friends that kept me level headed during these trying times.
However, in April of that same year, we learned that we were expecting again. This time I wanted to be excited, but found myself afraid. I really did not know what to expect considering what we had to go through the month prior. But I held my composure and as days, weeks, and months passed I slowly started to accept my reality and ask God to help me control my negative emotions.
On January 30, 2014, I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy, Dilan. My husband and I couldn't ask for anything more than that. We are a blended family and now we have a total of 4 children.
I was extremely grateful for the ability to uphold all the responsibilities and duties involved operating my flowers business, because towards the end of my pregnancy I was put on bed rest because of high blood pressure.
Today, I can honest say that I am in a better place mentally and physically and I thought it was only right that I share these with you since I haven’t updated my blog in such a long time. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I really appreciate you. 
I will be on vacation the whole month of August, which means I will not be shipping any flowers in that month. However, I will be accepting order form. Please feel free to use the “ Contact Sandy” link for any specific questions.  I am so looking forward to hearing from you.
As always blessed Planning,

Hello My Beautiful Brides!
 It’s been such a long time since I last posted a blog letting you ladies know what’s been happening here at Plumerias.  I have been very busy creating bouquets and booking weddings for the next seasoning. I am having so much FUN with some of these orders.  I am so thrilled to be able to use my creativity in putting together some of these order that has been coming in. It is actually one of many things thay makes my job as a Tropical Floral Designer such an honor. 

Speaking of honor, I have been receiving a couple for wedding pictures. Let me tell you how EXCITING those moments are for me.  It really makes my day to finally get to see the wonderful ladies I work with, their beautiful bouquet, and of course that special guy in their lives, so please keep those pictures coming.
As of the date of this blog, I still have shipment dates available. Please look at the link Ship Date link for more information.  If you are interested in an available shipment date, you can submit an order anytime. Although I will not be available in August, you can still put an order in and I will get back to you as early as the first week in September 2013.
I took over this business in December of 2012, and it been about six months since I have been creating these beautiful tropical bouquets for brides all over the globe which includes, England, Canada, Switzerland, and lately West Africa. There is an increasing demand for these bouquets, and it is my dream to be in a better position next year to accept much more orders, and make more brides happy.
During my vacation time in August,  in addition to taking a family vacation and celebrating my one-year Anniversary, I will also be putting a plan in action to expanding the business. I will be certain to keep you posted as progress is made.  Still next time ,  continue to enjoy every step of wedding planning, and if you have any questions please use the “Contact Sandy” link on the website.
Hugs and Kisses,

Wow, it is so nice to see my flowers on the beach!

If you don't know by now, I am a major beach girl at heart. It's where I feel the best in life. I would spend time there almost every day if I could.

Seeing the bouquets I create in such beautiful scenery fills my heart with so much joy! Then add to that, the fact that I get to see how beautiful the girls are that I work with.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to those of you who take the time to send me your wedding pictures!

January - The Good, and Not So Good

I don't know about you, but I've always felt so hopeful and inspired when the New Year rolls around. It always feels like anything is possible. I say this knowing full well that anything is possible any time of the year! And yet, that feeling kicks in the strongest for me at the beginning of a fresh year.

The good news is I am refreshed and full of energy - this is always good when it comes to creativity and running a wedding floral design business. Both require energy, spirit, dedication, and...

When it comes to wedding planning there are so many decisions to make that I'm sure it can sometimes be overwhelming.

Add to that, the fact that the web is just full of beautiful ideas and photos to inspire you !!

I don't know about you, but I think it is sometimes helpful to see all the parts of a wedding - the colors, flowers, invitations, cake etc..... all in one place. This can help you visualize the whole theme, style, and color scheme in one place.

I found this inspiration board on...

2011 - A New Year Of Wedding Planning!

A new year and lots of planning for upcoming weddings.

I bet a lot of brides get engaged around Christmas. Isn't that romantic?!  I got engaged right before Valentine's Day so that was pretty fun and romantic too!

Here is a romantic idea if you got engaged around the holidays - I found this water globe at Things Remembered and placed a picture of my husband and I in it. I think it would be nice to do that with an engagement picture.

Kimberly looks lovely (and so does her bridal party)  If you click on the photo, you will have an enlarged picture to view this more easily.

You can't go wrong with using Plumeria for your flowers when a beach wedding is involved.

She was kind enough to let me know about a scent she found to make the flowers smell like real Plumeria.

I have ordered it and it will be an option for you if you'd like it!
