I have known and worked with Randy for twenty years. He is incredibly talented, and a joy to work with. Randy has more than a green thumb, a real artistic flare for not just floral design, but design overall. He has an incredible eye for color and composition, and knows just when to add WOW or employ restraint. His work adds immeasurably to the chosen event design and helps to create just the right aesthetic. With Randy in charge of your florals or event accents, you can have every confidence that your event will be visually stunning, and that all the details will be expertly handled.

I had the good fortune to collaborate with Randy Watts while planning functions held at the French Embassy for two decades. He has an artist's eye that captures the spirit of the décor (including challenging linens with vibrant patterns) in his striking floral arrangements, achieving the perfect focal point for each table and additional arrangements that pull together an entire room. He met with every one of my clients so he could better understand their preferences and their budget. His arrangements are unfailingly elegant and the individual blooms are at peak perfection.
I admire his versatility; he creates arrangements that express his client's taste: modern and dramatic, dainty and charming, and updated classics, like his creations for my own wedding. We entrusted him with all the choices concerning the flowers; the arrangements for the garden, bouquets, tables, mantelpieces, etc. He met with my wife and learned that she loved going to art museums and which flowers she did not like. We saw his arrangements for the first time as he personally set up our venue, as he does for all his clients, and his arrangements surpassed anything we could have imagined. The flowers were inspired by paintings in our National Gallery of Art: Victorian in style for the large outdoor urns and a mix of flowers and grapes in a delicately wrought silver vase lifted right out of a Dutch still-life for the tables in more intimate rooms of an historic home. Mr. Watts does not overlook the importance of what his flowers are placed in and has an array of choices that are unique. He is a good listener with excellent taste and a floral arrangement designed with you in mind will be memorable and beautiful.

Just wanted to pass on my huge appreciation for the beautiful arrangements you provided at my last event. As always, they were stunning! My client raved about the flowers, saying how unique and artistic the arrangements were. And, the fact that you were able to pull it off on such short notice really means a lot. So, thank you once again. You truly are the best event florist in DC!

Randy Watts is a very close family friend and a gentleman. I have known Randy since the early 1970s and he has remained a very special person for all my family. His talent with flowers has never been equaled as far as I am concerned. At my daughter's wedding, he made our home a lovely show place! I wish him well in all his goals in life.
