Tobey Nelson Events + Design was founded on 5 core principles:

Beauty Matters

Humans benefit from connecting with the beauty of nature.  Flower power, you know!  Any day or occasion is enriched by the addition of flowers or plants.  We can help you figure out your best flower choices for the look you desire, and how to affordably transform your event with the inclusion of nature.

Every couple deserves a beautiful, fun, meaningful and stress-free wedding day

We want to help hosts be guests at their event.  There are SO MANY details involved in a successful wedding, and lots of oversight needed throughout the day of the event!  We’ve done this before.  Let us help you navigate the details and questions of wedding planning.  Allow us to manage the day so you and your peeps can relax and have a good time, not work!

Business practices can have positive impacts

We like to “do good” with our flowers.  Origin matters:  we source our flowers from local farms & we hire local businesses.  People matter:  we pay our employees a living wage, and endeavor to be a good place to work.  Sustainability matters:  we employ eco-friendly methods whenever possible.  That means when you hire us, you are “doing good” too!  Read more…

The best weddings are a reflection of the couple

Every couple is different, so every wedding should be unique.  We like to get personal with our clients.  Tell us your story so we can help you make your wedding truly feel like you.  Sometimes it only takes a tiny touch to make a big impact.

Floral design is a craft

We aren’t just slapping daisies in a jar over here.  Each floral creation is a carefully considered contribution meant to engage your guests and enhance your special day.  We love flowers, and want you to love what we create for you.

Hi, I’m Tobey.  Things that make me happy (besides my boys and a good cup of coffee) are making stuff, growing stuff, and seeing people having a really good time.  I truly believe in the power of natural beauty to transform a moment (that is why I’ve been playing with plants since I was a little kid).  I’m a “yes” girl, with a real desire to please people, and I invite you to use that in your favor!   I’d love to sit down with you (over a good cup of coffee!) and learn how I can help you create and beautiful day that feels like you – one that you can relax and enjoy because we are handling all the details for you!
