Amazing Job with Wedding – We had an amazing experience with Starbright Florist. We worked with Tom who was outstanding. He is passionate about what he does, is incredibly talented, but also really listened to our requests and desires for our wedding. We couldn't have been happier with the result. Not to mention the pricing was extremely reasonable. Couldn't give a higher recommendation for this store.
Beautiful Wedding Flowers – Starbright Florist did the flowers for our daughter's wedding on July 30. They were very professional, did a centerpiece ahead of time so that we would know exactly what it would look like, and gave us very reasonable prices. Their delivery was prompt, and the flowers were gorgeous, very fresh, and beyond our expectations. We highly recommend them!
Most Accomodating Florist in NYC! – I have used Starbright floral design both for business purposes and also for personal use. I work for a non-profit here in New York City planning fundraising events. Starbright has been a generous contributor to our organization for more than 5 years. For years at a time they provided a fresh arrangement of beautiful flowers at the house of our program for homeless women - and they have provided fresh gorgeous flowers for our events. Tom and Nic are always generous with their time and creative in their floral displays.
Just recently Starbright was a sponsor of our event and provided us with a display of gorgeous flowers for our event.
In addition to providing florals for events - Starbright is great when you need a fresh arrangement delivered in a hurry! I always feel confident when I call and ask for a beautiful display to be delivered that it will be perfect.
I am also using Starbright for my upcoming wedding. I am working with Tom for this. He is very creative and I just know they will be a hit!! I will update again after my wedding - but i'm sure it will be fabulous!
Tom's wedding arrangements will turn heads! – Tom Sebenius and the gang at Starbright designed the flower arrangements, flowers for my cake and the bouquets for my June 4th wedding ceremony and reception at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. They were unique and completely stunning. In addition, Tom was the best and simplest vendor to work with!
When I met Tom, I was instantly struck by how he radiated this amazing passion for floral design. I decided to set my obsessive compulsive bride-to-be tendencies aside for once and leave the creativity up to the flower expert!
I shared with Tom my two desires: 1) I had a seriously tight budget and 2) I wanted my flowers to be bright and unique and contrast against the conservative, dark elements of my venue.
Tom and I talked about flowers I liked. When we realized they would be difficult to do with my budget, he introduced me to flowers I had never heard, for example the Sea Holly. His suggestions were not only more affordable, but even more beautiful and definitely achieved the look I was going for.
As far as a businessman- Tom is super organized, super accessible and responsive. We communicated regularly via email and his responses were impressively prompt. He also coordinated with my caterer and my baker directly, which was super helpful during the hectic week leading up to the wedding.
All in all, Tom's flowers made everyone smile. In fact I must admit, I was a tad jealous as I left for my honeymoon that my mom got to enjoy all the beautiful flowers for another week! And I have definitely instructed my husband that any flowers he buys for me in the future must be bought directly through Tom!
Thanks again! I can't wait to buy more flowers from you and especially receive one of your beautiful arrangements again!
Tom is the best! – Words alone are not sufficient describe how pleased I am with Starbright's service. Nevertheless, I will try to write a review that will do them justice. I emailed Starbright very early on in my wedding planning process, back when I was searching for a good but affordable wedding florist in Manhattan. I knew a difficult path lay ahead of me, and I did not have high hopes. However, I received a response from Tom, and from the very first email, I could tell that how talented he is and how much he cares about his work. He and the Starbright team were willing to work within my budget and continued to correspond with me for a period of months, during which I vacillated between various ideas for centerpieces and bouquets. Although I had not even committed to using Starbright as my wedding florist yet, Tom and I became regular email buddies. He always enthusiastically answered all my questions and I continually asked for his advice on issues that fell well outside the scope of floral design, such as the overall color scheme for the wedding, my dress, hair, makeup, and invitations. Before long, I could not imagine going with any other florist. And besides, Starbright's prices truly could not be beat!
Eventually, my mother, my now husband and I met Tom at Starbright's headquarters and for all of us, it was like meeting an old friend. Tom met with us for over an hour as we sat down to hammer out some of the nitty gritty. Although I had picked out a fabulous Starbright design for my centerpieces, I felt like it was not 100% what I was looking for. But of course, I was not able to put my finger on what I felt the centerpiece was lacking. Tom, florist extrordinaire, sensed my hesitation and came up with a solution. He drew a few sketches of an idea he had and we agreed to meet again in a month. We all went back to Starbright expecting to see a work in progress. However, that is not what we got. Tom created a complete centerpiece for us, based on just the sketches and my vague descriptions of what I thought I was looking for, and it was absolutely perfect! For the first and only time during the wedding planning process, I found myself completely speechless! With the centerpieces completely set, we then turned to the bouquets, aisle decorations, bouttonaires, etc. At that point, Tom had my complete respect and trust, so I left the rest of the floral planning to him. I simply provided some input here and there and calmly waited for the wedding day. As the months went on, Tom remained a true and trust friend as I went through various wedding dramas. I considered him more than a florist - he was an advisor and friend!
Before long it was the wedding day, and as the afternoon approached I found myself looking for Tom in the reception hall. At first, I could not find him but I saw the rest of his team hard at work setting up. Luckily, just as he was leaving, I saw Tom! Without any hesitation, I gave him a big hug and asked to take a picture with him. As he went on his way, I went on to survey Starbright's work. The centerpieces were magnificent, as I knew they would be. And the bouquets were unique and breathtaking, just what I asked for! I had some unique and seemingly contradictory descriptions for what I was looking for - unique, classy, tropical, soft, wild, romantic - and somehow, Tom and Starbright met my criteria. I even had some competing colors in my color scheme. For example, I wanted a wild green as a dominant color, but also the royal blue found in peacock feathers. And let's not forget that I wanted to include actual peacock feathers in the bouquets! Starbright found a way to do it all and to do it all elegantly. We asked everyone to take the centerpieces home with them and people were practically fighting over them, and some guests took two!
I highly recommend their work and believe that they are the best florists in NYC.
Excellent – Thank you Nic and the Starbright Florist team for providing beautiful, modern floral arrangements for our MPIGNY Annual Awards dinner cruise on the Atlantica.
I called Nic two weeks before the event and he arranged everything within the following two business days. The level of customer service was well above par.
One of the talking points of the night was the beautiful, square shaped vases filled with vibrant flowers that complimented the mood of the event. People loved them so much that they took them home after the event was over.
I highly recommend Starbright for anyone looking for a florist who provides excellent customer service and striking floral displays.
Wonderful – This is the fourth year that I have worked with Starbright Floral Design in coordinating their donation of arrangements for the YWCA of New York's Summer Soiree.
During this time, we have held the event at different venues throughout New York City—Gotham Hall, The Loeb Boathouse in Central Park, and the new Trump Soho. The Starbright Floral team always develops a donation that aesthetically fits with the unique location and Soiree theme. In helping develop an arrangement for each event, Starbright has actually suggested various ideas that we never would have considered. For example, when they heard that we were going to hold the event at Gotham Hall, Starbright suggested that I needed something big to fill up the space—something like palm trees. We all thought this sounded a little crazy—crazier still as we unloaded nearly fourteen feet tall palm trees into the facility. But they were right. The stage looked fabulous and those palms are remembered to this day by those who attended. The evening would just not have been as stunning without their care and vision.
Starbright’s ideas are always blended though with what we envision for the year's event. Last year, we were holding the event at the Trump Soho with the theme "black, white and a hint of persimmon." Not only did they provide beautiful arrangements along this theme, but they suggested persimmon rose petals and even found them on special order. The petals added beautifully to the décor of the evening.
Starbright has been able to add this magical little extra to our events because of their true talents. Their arrangements are beautiful—exquisite blends of colors and appropriately reflecting the shape of the space and the season. They know how to fill a space and add to the mission, message or purpose of an event.
What has impressed me the most, though, is the care and enthusiasm the team has demonstrated. Each year, I am always asked in detail about what we're trying to achieve in terms of our vision and then we brainstorm together about how that can be achieved. Just a few minutes chatting with someone on the Starbright team and you know that everyone working there loves what they are doing. Along with these brainstorming sessions with the team, I have been able to communicate directly with the owner of the company Nic. Nic greets my yearly request for a donation with enthusiasm and appreciation to participate. He thanks me for the opportunity. He seems to care as much about the success of the event as we do. His enthusiasm becomes infectious and is a powerful reminder to me of why I participate in the planning of the event in the first place. Not only do I have fun, but I get the impression that Nic and the Starbright team are having fun making the Soiree beautiful too! I look forward to working with him each year.
I unequivocally recommend Starbright. I cannot rave enough about how pleasurable and exciting my experience has been working with Starbright and how much I am looking forward to seeing the arrangements that they will be providing this year.
Amazing arrangements, Superior customer service – I have been sending flowers regularly to Manhanttan via online orders all the way from the Philippines. I have tried several online providers/florists but I am now a loyal customer of Starbright.
First, the company provides the most exquisite and unique arrangements in the market. Their creativity is tops. They never run out of new ideas, new arrangements. The high creativity almost always leave the recepient of the flowers I send in awe. It never gets boring.
Second, the firm lives by their service credo of excellent customer service 24/7. I had one complaint and decided to email them without expecting them to do anything. But I was pleasantly surprised that they responded positively and even exceeded my expectations by addressing the issue. The firm's management is quite accessible and responsive even if I am million miles away from them. I give them perfect rating for customer service and reliability.
Lastly, the firm is very professional and reliable. I never had any issue with late deliveries and wrong arrangements.
If I have to knit pick on them, I will have to say thaty maybe they can perfect the consistency of the flower quality as I had a single so-so experience wherein the firm delivered a not so fresh flower arrangement. Just the same, the firm addressed the issue upon my complaint and vindicated themself.
I am definitely staying as a repeat customer.
Stephen's the best! – I use Starbright every time I need to buy flowers to my office. The arrangements are always amazing. The delivery people are always professional. When i order from them, i know the flowers will always arrive to my wife's office, and i don't have to worry about it. I know they arrive when my wife calls me glowing to thank me!
fantastic service – I needed somewhat last-minute help with a flower delivery -- actually three flower deliveries. I had one delivery that I realized, at the last minute, needed to be rushed before my girlfriend left town. Then I needed another delivery, the next day, to an obscure address out of the city. Then I needed another one a few days later back to the same address.
These guys did a FABULOUS job. They were attentive, friendly and completely efficient. Made me feel like I was their only customer.
Everything arrived beautiful and on time. They have a great reputation for customer service and it is WELL deserved.
Highly recommend Starbright and will use them again. and again.
