We are the ON-SITE florist for the Normandy Farm Hotel & Blue Bell Country Club. (And we’ve got free stuff for you!)
Of course, Willow & Thistle is more than just the property’s “on-site” florist. We are an award-winning, full-service floral and event design company with decades of experience providing floral arrangements, linens, lighting, ceremony décor and full-event consulting services throughout metropolitan Philadelphia. The Normandy Farm Hotel is simply where we call home.
So Why Use Willow & Thistle?
Sure, I could use this space to tell you that we’re great at what we do, that our pricing is very competitive and you’ll love working with us. But any florist will tell you that. Besides, you can always visit our website to see some of our work, peruse our Facebook Page for the fun stuff and search on-line for our wonderful reviews.
Here’s what we offer to our “on-site” brides:
FREE FULL ROOM UP-LIGHTING
We are the property’s exclusive provider of ballroom up-lighting. Depending on when you are getting married and how much you spend with us, we’ll include it for free.
Most florists have a minimum amount you’ll need to spend with them, especially during peak months. Not with us! All you need are bouquets and other personal flowers? No problem. Are you on a strict budget and your wedding is on a Saturday in June? Sure thing! We’ll take care of you, no matter what.
DISCOUNTS ON DELIVERIES, EVENT SET-UP & EVENT BREAKDOWN
Since our studio and production area is right on-site, deliveries, set-ups and breakdowns can be done for much less than what other florists charge. Since we’re right here on-site, there’s no travel and set-ups/breakdowns are a piece of cake – and we pass this cost savings on to you!
FAMILIARITY WITH EVENT SPACES & STAFF
With our on-site presence, we know every square inch of the property – what needs decorating, what doesn’t and what looks best and where. Not only that, but the hotel and club staff and management are our friends and colleagues – ensuring close communication and cooperation. Your event is sure to go off perfectly!
FREE EVENT DÉCOR
We have lots of cool stuff to help decorate the various spaces. Again, depending on your overall package, much of this can be provided free of charge. Need a birdcage for gift cards? We’ve got several to choose from. Need some extra lanterns and other decorations to spruce up the escort card table? Want your sweetheart table decorated with specialty linen and Chiavari Chairs? It’s all in our studio waiting to be used for your event.
WEDDING ARCHES, CHUPPAHS & MORE
Are you getting married on-site? Great! We’ve got everything you need and it all works with the overall décor of the property – and since it doesn’t really have to go anywhere, our rental prices are super-competitive.
TABLE LINENS – TABLECLOTHS, NAPKINS, CHAIR COVERS & MORE
Willow & Thistle is the property’s EXCLUSIVE provider of table linens of all colors and styles including table cloths, runners, overlays and napkins. We offer Chiavari chairs, chair covers and sashes of superior quality. Our pricing is competitive and we save you the time and effort of tracking it down on your own!
EXPERTISE IN BOTH MODERN & RUSTIC DESIGN
We service nearly 200 weddings and events each year at both the Normandy Farm Hotel and Blue Bell Country Club. Over the years we have acquired hardware and developed design techniques that match perfectly with the event spaces at each property.
FULL-TIME ON-SITE PRESENCE & AVAILABLE FOR LAST MINUTE REQUESTS
Since we are right on-site and fully staffed, any last minute needs and requests are easily handled. Need an extra boutonniere or corsage? Did you add a table last-minute? No problem – everything we need to service these pop-up requests is right here!
10% MILITARY DISCOUNT
If you and/or your fiancé are an active or retired member of the military – from the bottom of our hearts – we thank you for your service. And if we are able to include other stuff for free beyond the 10%, it’s yours!
