Wedding Flowers Could Not Have Been Better

I cannot more highly recommend Opalia. Meghan handled the flowers for our daughter's wedding, and did an amazing job working within our budget. She was very conscious of the couple's like and dislikes, and their desire to highlight seasonal flowers, and kept these needs in mind throughout the process. The resultant arrangements and candles were gorgeous, and Meghan worked hard to use them to their full extent (as a backdrop for the ceremony, then at the reception--even repurposing the bridal party bouquets to be used on the tables). She also found a creative way to frame the ceremony in the venue's space. She was a kind and calm presence throughout the planning, and at the actual event. Another lovely touch: Opalia helped us to donate our flowers to BloomAgainBklyn, an organization that picks them up, puts them into new arrangements, and delivers them to nursing home residents and shut-ins. It felt so gratifying to be able to pass along these beautiful flowers to others.

Best Service and Flowers I have ever ordered

I ordered flowers from owner, Phoebe Crary, to be in anticipation of my arrival at a friends house. Not only was the service great, but the flowers lasted for over 7 days (the duration of my visit). THANK YOU, OPALIA, FOR MAKING MY TRIP TO BROOKLYN SUCH A SUCCESS!

As a previous student of "THE SUPERB" Felipe Sastre I can say that he has taught us so magnificently and Opalia has done so well thanks to his precociously outstanding teaching style, I can only hope that I myself can do as well. Cheers to FELIPE SASTRE! ALL THE BEST TO OPALIA AND MUCH APPRECIATION over and over and over again TO FELIPE SASTRE AS HE IS INDEED A GREAT ARTIST WHO HAS TAUGHT MANY SO WELL!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
