Joanna Berkun is the most talented floral and event designer who has always created a space that was beautiful, interesting and fun.  She was referred by friends who do extensive entertaining at their home and gala events.  For 15 years she has helped design our family celebrations and holidays in our home, at restaurants, and the University Club in New York.


I have used her as a planner, organizing the theme, designing the room, and doing floral arrangements.  She doesn't just arrange the flowers she works to create a magical beautiful space which enhances the space. She is able to listen to what you want and then implement it in the most interesting and creative way.  I have had low keyed parties and more formal high end parties and she can handle both. Her choice of flowers is out of the ordinary. They are lush and unusual -- breath taking. The feedback from sophisticated guests has been that they are more impressed with the flowers than some of the well known guests! 


To give you an example, we did a  party at the University Club for my husband who is a techie.  She designed a theme around computers and gutted laptops and put flowers in them for the card table and created an interesting logo on the place cards.  Her attention to detail, her ability to understand what you want, and her art background make her extraordinary in her field.


When I get thank you notes they usually say how magnificent the flowers were and they ask for Joanna's contact information. She is warm, enthusiastic and a person of impeccable integrity just the type of person you can trust to do an excellent job and have working for you.

Joanna Berkun has designed and executed several important events for my family -- baby namings at home, a July 4th wedding, centerpieces for so many holidays as well as a number of large parties for over 100 people.


Her work is amazingly creative, unexpected glorious arrangements, always gorgeous.  At each event guests invariably comment that the flowers are the most beautiful and imaginative they have ever see.  Now I need a caterer whose food could equal her flowers; I can't imagine having an "event" without her.

Joanna's beautiful work, attention to detail and consummate professionalism brought our wedding to life. She worked tirelessly to understand our taste, she met us at our venue to get to know the space and the staff. On the day of the wedding she and her staff had everything choreographed, everything was picture perfect and her touches and vision kept our guests raving all night. She is a rare find and a true delight.
