Concept development & designing the overall vibe are the first steps in creating the custom Quade experience for you & your guests.  kerry Quade utilizes her artistic background in sculpture & installation leading a team of artists & designers to create decor that is both beautiful & edgy.   Color, form & function come together in original designs by kerry Quade.

planning:

We’re not just about pretty flowers… planning, design & production are where our expertise lies.  Looking for a little coaching? Need a day of coordinator? Searching for someone to plan the whole shebang? Look no futher…we can steer you in the right direction, pull together all of the details and design an event that will knock your socks off!  Recent events include a circus/coney island themed wedding at the Bell House… complete with aerialists and hula hoopers!

parties:

We’re not just about weddings either… we love a good party and have had super fun planning social, corporate and non profit events.  Taste Of Red Hook, Celebrate Brooklyn Opening Night Gala, New York Foundation for the Arts Hall of Fame Awards and Brooklyn Botanic Garden Gala are a few recent events that were a ball to work on and great for the community!

Thinking flowers are nice but wanting something a little more? How about a lounge area for folks to gather…our Prop shop collection of lounge furniture and styling elements can be incorporated to enhance the overall decor experience.

Did we mention we travel? We do!  #teamQuade is often spotted in upstate New York  &  has found themselves in North Carolina, Batimore, Washington DC,  & the Hamptons recently.  Previous events have landed us throughout New England, Washington D.C., USVI, North Carolina & Seattle.  Where is your event?

Need a recommendation?  We work with a team of event professionals…stop by Quade’s Faves to check some of them out!

let’s get started…

First, say hello! Email, telegraph, phone call, morse code… drop us a line using our handy contact form &  we’ll forward a brief questionnaire to get things started!

nitty gritty:

Once we have an initial chat via phone, email or in person  we will provide a line item outline.  Each situation, venue and event has it’s own unique style and needs so we do not have a set minimum or package per se –When thinking about your budget, here are a few things to keep in mind: more guests means more tables, which means more centerpieces.  This theory applies to everything.  Your guest count and number of people in the bridal party will directly affect your budget.  An average wedding that includes ceremony décor, personal flowers and reception décor with an average guest count of 150 can range from $6,000. – $10,000.  for floral and decor on average.   When considering your floral/decor budget parameters really think about this as a whole number and not each piece individually – in creating the décor design there are ways to focus the budget in certain areas to create the most impact.  Also consider, in addition to the floral and décor elements themselves: transportation, labor, delivery and styling fees which are additional and determined by the complexity of the decor installation, timing and venue requirements.

So you’re looking to party all night long?  For rental items, there is a late night breakdown / pickup fee determined upon the scope of work.  And let’s not forget about sales tax!  Unfortunately we have no say in this matter.

A deposit of one half of the total is required to confirm the date, with the balance due two weeks prior to your event.

happy planning! xokQ.
