I was so pleased with the floral arrangements Jim brought to life. From our first interaction at a wedding showcase, to our final planning meeting before the wedding, Jim and his assistant Lexi were wonderful to work with. Jim came to our wedding venue to get a sense of the layout, even though he had worked there before. Everything was deliberate and he explained all aspects of the total cost, allowing us to make changes up until the final week. We are so grateful for Jim's vision, his kindness, and his attention to detail. We did not regret our decision to use OffShoots for one second!

My wife, Aidan, and I recently had the rehearsal dinner for our wedding at Stotesbury Mansion on Rittenhouse Square. Jim and Offshoots provided the flowers and decor for an absolutely magical evening. He worked with us to create the perfect ambience for an unforgettable evening. The flowers and decorations were elegant and gorgeous, creating the perfect environment for our event. We can't thank Offshoots enough for everything they did to start our wedding weekend right, surrounded by friends and family in a breathtaking setting. If we have similar events in the future, we would not hesitate to hire Offshoots again!

Jim, Lexi, and the rest of the team at Offshoots were outstanding!
We initially heard about Offshoots because they are the in-house florist partnered with our caterer and venue. We didn't have to hire Offshoots, but we chose them because we were impressed with their work and with Jim's experience decorating our venue. Lexi, our main point of contact, was super sweet and very responsive.
Can't say enough great things about Jim! He did an amazing job of translating my vague ideas and Pinterest board into a fully-fledged decorating scheme, and also made a lot of helpful suggestions based on his expertise with our venue. He was also very respectful of our budget - when we asked where we could save money, he suggested a few small changes that saved us hundreds of dollars, without sacrificing the look we were going for.
When our wedding day arrived, their work exceeded all my expectations!!! The flowers were absolutely perfect and the decor around the venue was beautiful! We had a historic venue with gorgeous marble fireplaces. Jim and his team made the whole venue sparkle with candles and the perfect touches of flowers and greenery.
My only regret is that I didn't spend more time thinking about flower preservation. I wish my bouquet could have stayed that beautiful forever!

Offshoots is your absolute ideal wedding florist. I had a vision of a red white and blue theme for my July 5th wedding and they nailed it. Everything was considered - from the arch to boutonnieres to centerpieces to entrance way flowers, they did it all.
I can't speak high enough about offshoots. Working directly with Jim, he listens to your desires and creates your fantasy wedding. We had two sit down consultations. He takes the stress off of you and handles it all. Lexi was my point of contact via email/phone and she was so easy to work with. She made sure we had all the details covered so that we didn't miss a single thing. Working with Offshoots was stress free and I would highly recommend other brides/grooms to work with Offshoots. No matter what your wedding vision is, they can accommodate. They have a sample book of all the work they've done in the past, and believe me they've done it all!
Thank you Jim and Lexi for being an absolute dream team through the whole planning process.

Jim promised us romance and wow factor, and he did not disappoint! For our evening wedding, he and the team decorated many rooms in the historic mansion with candles and flowers. Holy cow, was it incredible to behold. We knew immediately upon meeting Jim that he would know exactly how to make the mansion shine. He offered tons of suggestions and guidance, and put together bouquets, boutonnieres, and floral arrangements for the fireplaces that were drop dead gorgeous and had guests ooooh-ing and ahhhh-ing all night. The Offshoots team made everything so beautiful that I dragged the family around to multiple rooms to take pictures. Lexi was our day-to-day point of contact and she kept us informed and on track. I can't speak highly enough of the whole Offshoots team! I just wish I could figure out how to post pictures of their handiwork so I could show it off in this review!

BOOK offshoots!!! Jim is amazing!!! He is talented, creative and simply wonderful!!! I was definitely the atypical bride. I didn't have many ideas and relied on Jim's expertise to create the perfect decor. He exceeded our expectations! The candles, flowers and overall visual presentation of the venue was absolutely beautiful!
Lexi was excellent in handling all of the specifics and answered all of our questions with ease.
5 stars is not enough!!!!
