  • We had a wonderful experience with Designs by Dara's Dara Ellis. She provided us with beautiful bouquets, corsages, boutonnières, and centerpieces, as well as chair, chuppah, and temple decorations for our wedding on June 10, 2017. I was stunned when I saw them. She is very accessible and very creative. She will take whatever decorating ideas you have and build on them. She would be a great florist to choose for any special event!

  • Dara truly is one of a kind! Not only is she creative, but she is such an amazing person to work with. She asked what my vision was for my wedding and she started to rattle off ideas; all that I loved. She was able to make my vision come to life. I collected my Grandma's Brooches and I asked Dara to incorporate them into my bouquet and it came out better than I envisioned. Her attention to detail and the love that she puts into her designs surpass any other florists I have worked with in the past! You will not be sorry when you choose Dara!

She captured our vision perfectly and made it even better! Her responsiveness is almost immediate and her prices are very reasonable too!! I would HIGHLY recommend Designs by Dara for any floral needs!

  • Dara did the flowers for our ceremony, reception, and wedding party and she did a great job! She was more affordable than other florist that I had spoken with. She was also very patient and helpful while I tried to figure out what my vision was. I changed my flowers and colors a lot, meanwhile she was always there to listen and respond and send me pictures and never got frustrated with me. I really appreciated that! I had daisies in my bouquets and really wanted them for the groom and groomsmen boutonnieres too, I was so happy when she suggested silk daisies for the boutonnieres because the real daisies would be too fragile and fall apart. She did an amazing job finding daisy boutonnieres to match the daisies in the bridesmaids bouquets. I also love how well she setup the centerpieces and really displayed my vision well. I got lots of compliments from guests about how much they liked the centerpieces. Everything she did looked great!

  • I wasn’t sure where to start with my flowers, but picking Dara to do my flowers was the best choice I made for my wedding. Dara was welcoming and had amazing ideas when we first met. She really understood what I wanted. I had a mix of low and high assortments which incorporated beautiful white pumpkins and gorgeous flowers. The flowers were so fresh. I highly recommend Dara.

  • This florist does weddings, but I used her for a baby shower. I didn't give Dara much time (a week), but she really came through with beautiful flower arrangements. My guests admired them and wanted to take them home! Dara also gave me the option to rent table runners so I did not have to buy them - the room looked great! She also delivered to my venue, so the process was so convenient. I would definitely use Designs by Dara again.

  • We used Dara for our wedding at The Mill in July. She was amazing! From our consultation, I felt she completely understood what I wanted and she executed the all of the flowers PERFECTLY. She was so helpful during the process and I felt her price and value was very reasonable. She is a true professional.

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE Dara! She is great to work with, she is easily reachable, and responsive, creative, and super friendly. She brought my ideas to life. The flowers were fresh, everything from bouquets to corsages were breathtaking. My guests loved the centerpieces and couldn't believe the little details involved. Dara is exceptional and I would recommend her to anyone that needs a florist for any event. I wish I could post pics to show just how lovely everything was.

  • I worked with Dara for my wedding at the Mill on 8/1/15. She was recommended by the venue and I had met her at their bridal show. When I went to meet her to discuss what I wanted she had tons of photo albums with ideas and I brought pictures of things I liked. She asked me my budget and then later sent me a "vision board" type document with pictures of what we had talked about along with the breakdown of cost. I do not know much about flower types and costs so this was VERY helpful to be able to visualize what we had discussed. She did the outdoor ceremony space, bouquets, boutonnieres, center pieces, and table runners all within my price range. When I first saw the bouquets I was speechless. They were exactly what I had envisioned, but better. The flowers at the venue were amazing too and helped tie together my theme. Thank you so much for helping making our wedding day so beautiful!

  • Designs by Dara - Dara was the first vendor I booked. I loved her work shown on her website, and felt she would make a great fit to our style. Dara was very responsive to my ideas and offered suggestions as well. She clearly knows her stuff, from look and feel of the flower arrangements to time lines needing to be kept, etc... Dara was quite lovely to work with and her pricing was more then reasonable. I would suggest any friend/family member to use Designs by Dara for any occasion that calls for flower arrangements!

  • Dara created the most beautiful table arrangements for our wedding celebration at The Mill on 5/30/15. I told her my budget and a few ideas I had and she did the rest. I know I got far more for my money with Dara than I would have gotten from other vendors I talked to. It took my breath away when I saw how beautiful her arrangements made the room look. Every wedding vendor should be as great and easy to work with as Dara. I highly recommend Dara - you will not be disappointed!!!

  • I used Dara for my April wedding at The Mill. She came as a recommendation from Amy. I am so happy I asked for her recommendation because my flowers came out exactly how I pictured them in my head! Not one flower wilted the whole day. Dara also decorated the gazebo for our ceremony, which looked like a dream. We just had 3 small clusters of pale pink roses at the center and each corner with draping fabric. The way Dara made those roses, we were able to move them into the reception room to reuse and they looked like they were additional pieces we ordered. We had them around our cake and card/gift box. We were on a budget so I couldn't order these pieces from the start. Dara also made sure we stayed within our budget, which was a great help. My bouquet was made up of white roses and stephanotis with pearls. The size of the bouquet and ratio of flowers were perfectly proportioned. The guys' boutineers were double stephanotis and my husband had a triple one. For something very simple, it l... Read more

  • Dara was so easy to work with for our wedding in August and so accommodating! Plus, she's a really great value. Honestly, she was one of if not the best-priced florist we looked at, but her work was just as good if not better than the others. We didn't look for much in terms of flowers; just bouquets of Gerber daisies, boutonnieres and a couple corsages and small bundles of sunflowers. Honestly, we were pretty much looking at the bare minimum of flowers, and simplistic ones at that, but Dara never made us feel like any job was too small. She was more than willing to work with us, and even gave us a few ideas that ultimately ended up in our final floral design. (For instance, we had rainbow bridesmaid bouquets, and instead of trying to dye and match indigo, she suggested subbing in bright magenta Gerberas instead. It was perfect!) She also helped give us a ton of centerpiece inspiration! We did not end up using her for centerpieces and instead DIY-ed them, but she does beautiful work an... Read more
