What floral services do you provide?
If you can dream it up, we can make it happen. At RUE ANAFEL, we have designed flowers for pop-ups, events, weddings, personal dinners, photoshoots, deliveries, open houses, and many other things. We have shipped dried bouquets to vendors to stock at their pop-ups in other states, as well as for brides to gift to their maids.
how would you describe your style?
Although we tend to be inspired by old, Dutch Master styles, we are able to branch out as well. Generally, our style is natural and wild. We always incorporate foraged materials for a feel of the season and how a habitat from a specific region would naturally look. Our goal is to recreate a garden or landscape, capture all that is encompassed within it. Not just the flora, but the branches, foliage, depth, and color.
WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU WORK WITH?
At RUE ANAFEL, we try our best to work with locally grown, seasonal, and fair trade products. We use both fresh and dried flora and foliage in our designs. We strive to utilize the natural beauty of nature, so you won't find us spray painting branches or glittering fruit.
CAN YOU TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS, WORKSHOPS, OR EVENTS?
Yes! We have flowered weddings out of state and internationally.
What is the best way to schedule a consultation?

We have worked with brides in other countries as well as states via e-mail prior to flying out the week before the wedding.
What should we bring to our first consultation?
Within the e-mail, hopefully we'll have answered the questions where, when, what your colors are, and what theme or feeling you're envisioning. You should bring items that will give us an idea of your personal preferences and feel for your event. Some examples might be: a photo of your attire, color and fabric swatches of your linens, any pictures you have seen that you like, and any items you intend to use at your event. We also need to know the number of people in your bridal party (if it is a wedding), number of guests expected to attend and your budget. I'll ask questions such as how you would like to bouquets and bouts wrapped, what your table layout will be like, and set up start and deadlines. If you get this information to us a few days before of our consultation, we can prepare a design board for the meeting.
