Although she is best known for her lush California natural style, Arlene Boyle of Violetta Flowers is knowledgeable in all popular floral design styles. Her goal is to create floral arrangements that will meet each individual client’s desires. Arlene is committed to site visits and enjoys doing walk-throughs with her clients, so they can co-create a décor plan that will enhance the location. Violetta Flowers has a full range of props that can be used to accent all of their designs.
Violetta also has a “total service” program that includes everything clients need to insure that their flowers will look perfect throughout their event, such as pinning on boutonnieres and corsages.
Exuberant, intuitive, musical.
A wonderful Italian family mentored me when I moved to California so many years ago. They nicknamed me Violetta, for my violet eyes. Their love made me blossom and I wanted to honor that.
For my experience, quality, passion, and especially service.
Nature, of course. The beauty of it all. The special blue San Francisco sky that Maxfield Parrish painted. The artistry of a master chef. Georgia O'Keefe. Frida's hair... I especially love color. I find the color of exotic birds and fish breathtaking and impossible. My childhood pack of 65 Crayola crayon names started it all for me.
My favorite wedding was this past December. My favorite bride, Beverly, full of grace and love, showed us all what love is. Some florists say their favorite moment is when the bride sees her bouquet for the first time. Mine is when Beverly looked at her husband. Flowers help tell a story, and I am honored to be a part of telling a beautiful story.
Many people we talked to called Arlene Boyle a floral designer who was an “artist in spirit.” She has nurtured that spirit with a comprehensive education that includes a degree in Fine Arts from SFSU, a certificate from the Floral Design Program from the College of Marin, and on-going participation at workshops that are facilitated by the experts in the floral industry. Arlene attributes her highly touted customer service skills to her restaurant background. Having held every service position in the restaurant business, Arlene knows the value of customer satisfaction. She is committed to maintaining a “total service, total satisfaction” creed at Violetta.
