CM Floral Designs & Events
Any Event on Any Budget
For fourteen years, Carolyn Easely, founder of CM Floral Designs & Events has provided her unique talents and beautiful designs to residents and businesses across The Woodlands area. CM Floral Designs & Events recently relocated from a smaller, storefront location on Rayford Road, to a spacious, 4,000-square-foot location on Budde Road, which houses a large and efficient work space for floral designers, a showroom to showcase different tablescapes, centerpieces for events, an expanded selection of silk flowers, in-house linens, and a spacious warehouse to store all of their inventory.
We sat down with Carolyn at her Grand Re-opening event1, and discussed the many benefits of their new location… as well as the one – albeit small – hitch. “No one knows where we went!” Carolyn said with her characteristic smile and laugh, “We’re here and we’re better than ever,” she went on. And indeed, it has been a change for the better.
CM Floral Designs & Events has become known for the personal touch and unique designs in their floral arrangements, gift baskets, silk flower arrangements and interior decor. But over the years, they have also brought many of event-related services into their repertoire. Now, with their new location on Budde Road, all of those services are located under one roof. And now more than ever, whether you need a quick bouquet on the way home to get you out of the doghouse – or you’re planning an event for hundreds of guests – CM Floral Designs & Events can provide you with ideas, designs and accessories.
Rather than picking out your linens at a party rental store, and your candelabras at another, or your centerpiece crystal at yet another location – CM Floral Designs & Events has all of this and more right there in the store. No more worries about whether a particular shade of tablecloths is going to coordinate with the ribbons on the staircase or the flowers in the centerpieces; at CM Floral Designs & Events, you create the experience you want with everything you need at your fingertips. Or perhaps you only have the barest of outlines for what you want, and you’re not sure how to bring it together. At CM Floral Designs & Events, you can see tables that are completely laid out in a rainbow of color schemes – from a minimalist design with classic lines and single-color themes to the topsy-turvy world reminiscent of Dr. Seuss or Alice’s Wonderland.
CM Floral Designs & Events always has high quality, fresh flowers on hand which come in directly from their distributor. The result is truly beautiful arrangements which tend to last much longer than typical floral arrangements. Carolyn’s floral designs with a whimsical touch are custom tailored for each customer and purpose. Carolyn and the experienced staff at CM Floral Designs & Events can create beautiful bouquets for birthdays and anniversaries; unique sympathy designs; corporate arrangements for lobbies or common areas; holiday decor for homes and offices – and so much more. Carolyn tells us, “I once made an anniversary bouquet for a couple who had a bit of an inside story between them involving Red Bull®. It might sound silly to an outsider, but when she saw the Red Bull® & Roses bouquet he presented her, he tells me she actually cried a little.” Carolyn has dozens and dozens of similar stories from clients over the years, many repeat customers which have come to depend on her exclusively to always have something new up her sleeve.
Numerous wedding and event venues in The Woodlands area also work exclusively with CM Floral Designs & Events – and have for many years. Hotels such as The Woodlands Waterway Marriott & Convention Center and Hyatt Market Street, The Woodlands; restaurants such as Amerigo’s and Kirby’s Steak House and many, many more. The reputation and relationship CM Floral Designs & Events has built with these and other area companies means that her Information Center – freely available to anyone who comes into CM Floral Designs & Events – is stocked with vendors such as caterers, photographers, videographers, DJs, bands, photo booths and limousine services; every service one might need to coordinate any type of event of any size.
So if you haven’t had a chance yet, stop in at CM Floral Designs & Events’ new location. It is truly a thing of beauty tucked into the woods. While you’re there, you can watch Carolyn and her staff work their magic right in front of you in their open work area. You can also browse amongst a selection of fine gifts and jewelry items – perfect for that last minute birthday, graduation, shower or anniversary gift. Once you see the personal touch CM Floral Designs & Events can put on your floral arrangement, gift basket, centerpiece or corsage, you may find all those other ‘assembly line, take-it-or-leave-it’ florists simply pale (or wilt?) in comparison.
CM Floral Designs & Events is located at 25915 Budde Road, right at the south-eastern edge of The Woodlands. Call them at 281 362-8977 or visit their website at CMFloralDesigns.com for simple directions from anywhere.
1 CM Floral Designs & Events Grand Re-opening event was catered by Katz’s Express. We were pleasantly surprised by the samples of dishes and desserts we tried while we were there, and learned from Sandi Maslak, their Catering Manager, that they’ve just put the finishing touches on a new holiday catering menu, which will become available beginning in the 2012 holiday season. Keep checking back with us for exclusive information about these exciting changes. (return to article)
