Shirley and her staff saved the day for me. My mother and I did all the table arrangements for my daughter's small intimate wedding. The hydrangeas we had bought the day before had mostly wilted overnight and needed to be replaced for the dinner reception. In a panic, my husband and I were on our way to find replacements. Rose Petals Florist is located a few blocks from our new son in laws home where we were having the reception. We decided to stop in and see what they had. Shirley did not disappoint. Not only did she offer me new beautiful white and green hydrangeas, she also had the most gorgeous cream colored garden roses I have ever seen. I was so impressed that they took the time to stop in the middle of preparing for multiple weddings and happily assist us. I HIGHLY recommend Rose Petals. Even though I live at the north shore of Lake Tahoe this will be my go to florist in the future. They are well worth the drive. As a side note, the flowers I purchased from them almost a week ago are still as lovely and fresh today as they were on the day I bought them.

I love the flowers that Shirley made for our wedding. We chose just to have body flowers for the family and some bunches to decorate the arch for the ceremony, so pretty low key (no centerpieces). My initial meeting was with Shirley's assistance, who was great! We met with her for an hour and let her just help guide us to the bouquets and boutonnieres we liked by looking at photos. We put together every last detail. Two weeks later, though, I had to go through the whole consultation with Shirley over the phone since she said she "didn't have the notes" from the assistant. What was unfortunate was that I know no flower names, so it was trickily to recall details. All details ironed out well, though, until I had a frantic VM from Shirley two nights before the wedding, stating I hadn't given her details for the wrist corsages and she was going to have to make decisions. We had discussed her question over e-mail two weeks prior and, when I called her back, she said that she just didn't want to look back at her e-mail.... I was not very pleased with that statement.
Any-who, flowers turned out great but there were some day of issues I was not happy with: We paid for her to do two deliveries and pin boutonnieres on the men, but she dropped the flowers off at the front desk of our hotel, which resulted in my photographer pinning and my bouquets lost in a box on the terrace for 20 minutes, in the warm sun. I hope that our situation was an exception, because Shirley seemed so passionate about her job, but I am a little disappointed in the lack of professionalism throughout the process.

My husband and I are Tahoe locals. We had our wedding August 8th 2012. Rose Petals was recommended to us by a coworker. I met/spoke mainly with Shirley and she was so sweet and accommodating. Despite the fact that I was a lost puppy when it came to flowers, Shirley worked with me and put in her own ideas while also keeping in mind what I had visioned. All I can say about Shirley is that she is very professional and knows exactly what she is doing. She is so sweet.
On the big day the bouquets, decor of the ceremony and reception and everything else turned out more amazing than I could ever have imagined. Shirley and her team made my wedding day. Everything was stunning and I could not have asked for more. I would HIGHLY recommend Rose Petals for any wedding in South Lake Tahoe. Everything was perfect.
