DIY Special Events

Our Mission Statement:  DIY Special Events provided by The Secret Garden florist in Decatur IL is committed to providing the freshest flowers for your event. We want your special event to be one to remember forever. Backed with years of knowledge as a retail florist we can help you create the day of your dreams.


What We Offer:  We offer a wide variety of fresh cut flowers at bulk prices. This allows you to stay within your budget for your big event. Your flowers will be inspected for quality, processed in floral solution, and stored in our floral cooler. We will provide you with the care and handling information needed to keep your flowers fresh.  


Packaging:  Your flowers will arrive in bulk packaging. You will need to process the flowers upon receiving them. This may include removing rose thorns, allowing flowers to open, and keeping the flowers in floral solution. Some flowers require more time to open and we will provide you with that information before your order.  


Free Consultation:  A free ordering consultation is provided. We suggest you call us at 217-875-9038 at least 90 days before your wedding to make your appointment. At this consultation we will get the list of flowers you wish to order, write you out a price quote, and answer questions about our services. We will also provide you with a checklist so that you will have everything you need to care for your flowers. All orders must be paid in full at least 3 weeks before the arrival date of the flowers. We will notify you of your order date at this consultation.


Paid Consultations:  For a fee, you can schedule an appointment with one of our bridal consultants. We will work with you to determine the flower count you will need for your event. By going over the bouquets, center pieces, and your needs we can provide a flower count and estimate for you.


Hybrid Weddings:  This is the perfect package for an event with many layers. For example, we can complete your wedding and church flowers, and you can complete your reception work. We have several levels of hybrid weddings and can discuss these at your free consultation. We suggest you schedule this consultation at least 4 to 6 months prior to your wedding day. If you choose this option a deposit will be required to hold your date.
