Events and Covid-19
Gosh, this is a weird time. Who would have thought a month ago that so many parts of the country wouldn’t be allowed to have events, see their loved ones, or even play in a playground? To keep each other safe, especially our most vulnerable neighbors, I 110% support the social distancing and closures of non-essential business. For me, this means two things: 1) many events have been postponed, and 2) I’m technically not allowed to go into the studio. As you can imagine, my bank account is taking a hit. The income that I usually depend on in the Spring is gone. It’s a hard time, although this post isn’t about me, it’s about YOU.
All of you wonderful people and clients who have been meticulously planning and designing once-in-a-lifetime celebrations. I FEEL FOR YOU. I’m here for you. Having to postpone your wedding or your son or daughter’s mitzvah is heartbreaking. You might be sad, angry, confused, and hurt. But the thing is – you aren’t in it alone. You have me. Your trusted event designer and florist. I’m working diligently with my current clients to accomplish the following through this covid-19 crisis:
- Postpone your events.
- Temporarily cancel our policies for fees regarding rescheduled events. No extra fees will be applied. Each client’s payments will be used towards their new date.
- Redesign for free, if necessary. The floral supply line has been insanely disrupted and we aren’t sure when it will be fully back online. This means we’ll be making a game plan in case we have to relay on all local flower farms for 2020 events. Luckily, here in the lower Hudson Valley we have amazing flower farms.
For prospective clients, I’m offering some specials. Because of all of the social distancing restrictions, my Spring sales are way down. 2021 couples and mitzvah parents: THIS IS THE TIME TO BOOK. Anyone who books me for floral design and/or event design by April 30th will get:
- A free bridal bouquet or a $250 credit towards your final bill
- 5% off of the delivery, set-up, and breakdown fees
