Thanks to Margaret Palmer and her amazing work on my bouquet, our wedding had a magical, foresty feel!! She was beyond fun to work with and definitely has a heart of gold! I sent a photo of what I had hoped for in a bouquet and she exceeded all of my expectations. My bouquet was simply amazing! I definitely recommend her because you will not be left disappointed

Margaret Palmer did all the flowers for our daughter's wedding last August. This was a large wedding attended by 500 folks. Margaret prepared flowers for the arbor, 50 table arrangements, and all the bridesmaids and groomsmen along with adding flowers to the bride's bouquet. Margaret did an outstanding job. My wife and I were totally impressed; the flowers looked amazing. During the wedding and even weeks later we had several folks tell us how beautiful the flowers were. Working with Margaret was a great experience. She was always available at a moments notice, she was very helpful, and she was always willing to accommodate changes along the way. Margaret always displayed a superb level of professionalism and experience. Margaret was a critical component in making our daughter's wedding a wedding to remember for ever. We highly recommend Margaret to do the flowers for your wedding. You will be totally satisfied. This testimonial was provided by Rudy and Margaret Abeyta.

Margaret Palmer not only makes beautiful and unique arrangements but she also offers the best customer service, period.
My husband and I got married at a historic house and she came to look at it before the wedding for decorative ideas and helped me come up with how the ceremony would play out, because I didn’t know what I was going to do about that. She came early on the day of the wedding and helped set up much more than just the flowers.
She made all my decorative dreams come true. The theme for my wedding was Southwestern Gothic, and she really hit the nail on the head. She put flower arrangements in the eyes of animal skulls I have collected throughout the years and did a gorgeous display above the doorway we were married under. She also did an incredible job on my bouquet, I really loved it so much. Even the boutonnieres were really cool and sophisticated. My groom had a sprig of lavender in his and I really enjoyed getting little whiffs of lavender throughout the day. All the flowers were high quality, the colors were so bright and everything looked so lush.
Planning a wedding is so stressful but having Margaret as my florist took so much stress off because I knew she would do a great job without me having to check in on her constantly.
When my daughter and her fiancé decided that they were going to be married on a mountain top in Red River, NM, I thought, "How perfect, July in the cool, green mountains." There were several complications, however; one being that I lived on the east coast of Virginia, another being that the bride did not want any flower arrangements or a bouquet that looked like they'd been put together by a traditional florist. She wanted wildflowers. Sight unseen, Margaret and I bonded as she shared her ideas with me, long distance. The results were perfect. I had put my complete trust in her, and she more than came through. Her desire to please both the bride and her mother was amazing, as was her patience at such a stress - filled time. My gratitude for Margaret Palmer is boundless.

How can I ever thank you enough for making my wedding Truly Magical! I’ve seen your work for years, so I knew you would be the only one I could trust to help shape my vision and make it come to life. You were such a comfort and calming influence to me along the whole process; your ideas and advice (on everything) was invaluable. Most importantly, your flowers and design were exquisite!
In particular, I wanted to thank you for your immediate detection of an issue with my cake. Your quick thinking and ingenuity to remedy the issue (caused by another vendor) coupled with your “get it done” approach was truly a wedding gift. You could have come to me with the issue, or worse just ignored it. Instead, you simply handled it with your beautiful flowers/design and left me blissfully (and gratefully) unaware to enjoy my day. I would never have known if you didn’t tell me later. What can a say, you’re a true professional with the Big Picture!
I also wanted to let you know how much my family and I are enjoying the ceremony succulent/candle arrangements….. long after the wedding. Not only were they gorgeous and the perfect candlelight addition to my “walk down the aisle” we now have memorable succulent additions to our gardens. Every time I look at the garden, I think of your beautiful arrangements and our special day. You should see how big the “candle plant” is getting. It was once an elegant bud tied to a candle; now it is a plant as big as a grapefruit…love continues to bloom!
Thank you again for your advice, patience, professionalism and Design Perfection!!!
"I cannot thank you enough for creating the perfect flower arrangements for Joseph's Bar Mitzvah. After a brief conversation with you ahead of time, it was such a great relief to know that you would take care of every detail. You created arrangements that worked just perfectly for a "boy's event", and that reflected the fall season. Using rocks in the vases and scattered around the flowers was such a creative idea! Working within my budget, you created centerpieces that worked just perfectly for my event. Many of my guests complimented your flower arrangements, and I couldn't have been happier with your service and your product. You can be sure that I will call you again when it's time to plan another party. Again, thank you so very much for your thoughtful and professional services."
"I got married in August (2014) and Margaret Palmer did the flowers for the entire wedding party and the reception. The first thing she told us is that the flowers are the first impression people have when they walk into the room. She said you want them to have a lasting impression on people, and a unique touch (something that represents the couple). For our wedding, since I'm from beautiful Taos, NM, she added red willow tree branches to the center pieces. I had no worries throughout the days leading up to the wedding or the day of; Margret took care of it all. She is wonderful, professional, unique, and inspired!"

"Margaret Palmer designed the bouquets and floral arrangements for my daughter's wedding in August of this year. From the beginning of the planning and through the day of the ceremony and reception, her professionalism was incredible. She listened to our ideas, made wonderful suggestions, and worked with our budget. On the wedding day she made sure that the flowers, centerpieces, guestbook table and cake table looked amazing! Not only were the flowers gorgeous but very fresh as Margaret made sure that they were kept in water while they were transported from Taos to Albuquerque. I can't thank her enough for all of her hard work and attention to detail. You made Daniela and Joshua's day extra special and beautiful."
Good Morning Margaret...
"Our special day was absolutely wonderful in every way. You did a fabulous job on our flowers and the heart will be with us for a long time to come. Saturday when we had a gathering for family and out of town friends folks raved about our wedding and one friend helped us put the heart up in our living room so we could all continue to enjoy it.
It was a pleasure to work with you and we just knew from the moment we met you that the flowers would be beautiful.
We will keep you posted about our plans to walk in the 4th of July Parade in Seco and hope you and your husband might join us. Already talked with Rochelle about making a cake or cakes for us to hand out little pieces. THANKS SO MUCH FOR REFERRING US TO ROCHELLE ..she too did a fabulous job and her cakes and the food she prepared for Saturday was delicious and simply great!
So you can see we are all smiles and have you and many others to thank for that.
Best of luck moving forward with your flower business. You are the best and we will let folks know for sure."
Love and peace,
Barbara and Jean-Vi
I just heard from my son and he said
The gourmet baskets were really nice and whoever I got to do them did a great job. He also said they were some of the best he has ever seen!!
The rose pedals were a very nice touch. Thanks again,
When I first contacted Margaret, I had no idea what I wanted for my wedding, at our Taos home, and the reception, at Old Martina’s Hall (OMH) on the last Saturday of January. Because it was January, we wanted a winter theme and because we are in our 60’s, we wanted a certain amount of informality but we also wanted it to be lovely and graceful. I felt like I was in over my head. I met Margaret and her husband at her house, arriving with a big bag of fairy lights and several rolls of floppy 5 inch wide turquoise ribbon. Over tea, I gave Margaret my ideas—wintery flower arrangements, turquoise bows and ribbons decorating the tables, and lots of candles, which I would provide—all within a fairly tight budget. Margaret was full of clever ideas—a crown for our sweet flower girl of tiny white roses, matching boutonnieres for the ring bearer and groom, flower heads with big turquoise bows for the centers of the tables (less expensive than floral arrangements), and a white roses and other whites with pine cones and branches for the floral centerpieces. More than that, she gave me lots of valuable suggestions, including putting sticker codes on the place cards so the waiters could quickly tell who got what and coordinating with Jocelyn of Jocelyn cakes. She sent me an itemized bill within 48 hours, which I thought remarkably reasonable.
On the day of the wedding, she delivered flowers for my hair to the hair salon while I was there and delivered the table arrangement for my house, the boutonnieres, and the crown of roses, and the bridal bouquet to my house. She also went to Old Martina’s Hall to deliver the flower arrangements and bows and worked with my friends and Jocelyn to decorate the tables and cake table. As soon as I realized she would take responsibility for decorating the dining room at OMH, I felt I was in safe hands and could relax. When we walked into the room, it was magical—gorgeous, expansive white floral arrangements on the large rectangular tables with fairly lights twinkling among the flowers and branches, beautiful big puffy bows in the centers of the round tables, and an abundance of lovely candles artfully placed. It was just beautiful. I cannot recommend Margaret enough—she made our wedding special and seemed to understand exactly what I wanted—even if I wasn’t quite sure. Oh, and the greens for the arrangements and all the flowers were piñon and rosemary, which provided a lovely scent.
I hope things are going well for you guys. I am sorry it has taken me so long to get you a testimony. The rest on my summer was an absolute nightmare and then school started so any free time I had evaporated. But here it finally is.
I can not thank you enough for everything you did for me. All the flowers were beyond beautiful! And all the extra touches were awesome. Those red petals on the green grass of the aisle look amazing in photos. Thank you for being an amazing florist and becoming a friend.
If I can ever do anything for you, please let me know.
-- much love and appreciation
The Taos Flower Diva Margaret Palmer is phenomenal! Our daughter was married in Taos October 2015. We were referred to Margaret by a Taos business community member. When we met with her we knew she was the person who was going to create the beautiful bouquets and create memorable flower arrangements for the reception. She did it! Margaret created beautiful vibrant fall color arrangements that pulled in the feeling of fall with wonderful pumpkins filled with bursts of color. My guests were awed by their beauty many, many comments on the table floral arrangements.
Taos was a destination wedding for our family and having Margaret there and available to answer questions, provide her expertise was so valuable for us. She helped us navigate the venue which she was very familiar with and was knowledgeable about the staff at the site. The property was sold to a new company right before the wedding….adding an unanticipated level of stress. Margaret was great she went to the property checked things out confirmed my new contact person and re-assured me the property was in great shape and would be beautiful for the outdoor wedding.
I am so pleased with the service from the Taos Flower Diva Margaret Palmer! I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants the best.
"When it comes to flowers, well just about anything, Margaret is a creative genius! I really didn’t know what I was looking for in a bridal bouquet design and after talking with her about what flowers I liked and what my dress looked like, she went to the ends of the earth to find the perfect flowers that complimented my dress and envisioned what I wanted for the rest of the wedding party and table arrangements. She worked into the night and early on my wedding day to create her magic. You will not be disappointed with her work, and her work ethic."
“I just wanted to send you a note saying thank you for making my special day even more so by fulfilling the vision I didn't even know I had for my wedding day flowers. I came to you knowing your history, care and exceptional service but was blown away by the artistry of each and every bouquet, boutineer, and centerpiece. I had a basic idea of what I wanted but you took that idea and made it come to life in the way I always dreamed of. All of the flowers were so individually beautiful and yet tied together in a elegant fluid theme. In addition to the beautiful flowers, you made every person in my wedding party feel special and met both spoken and unspoken needs. The time and care you take is unmatched by anyone I have ever met. You have a wonderful gift and I would highly recommend you to anyone, anywhere, at anytime who wants a floral experience beyond compare that speaks to the heart.
"We hired Margaret Palmer to do the floral arrangements for our wedding because word in Taos had it that she was the most creative florist ever! Well, that turned out to be true and we were really REALLY pleased with her work. We gave her total freedom to be creative within our budget, and she did not disappoint us. She used a wide variety of flowers and greens to beautiful and dramatic effect. We asked that each table centerpiece be different, and each was a true work of art. We gave Margaret full control of all table arrangements and she coordinated with the banquet facility and insured each table was perfectly set. The flowers for the ceremony itself were vibrant and lively which emphasized the joy of the occasion. Each corsage and boutonnière added a dramatic touch to all our attire, and our wedding officiant in particular loved her oversized corsage. There were countless other floral touches throughout the day, each a thoughtful placement. And to top it all off, Margaret was delightful to work with in planning and on the day of the event. She is warm and has a wonderful sense of humor. We recommend her highly!!"

To Margret Palmer,
"I Della Barrone would very much like to thank you for addressing my needs the numerous times I have called you for flowers. I enjoy your enthusiasm to provide me with more than I anticipated. Even on the spur of a moment you never turn me away. I am always extremely satisfied. Your work has a wonderful artistic touch that makes each arrangement unique. I would like to thank you for the amazing center pieces for the Mayors Reception and for my sons wedding reception. They were absolutely beautiful and enjoyed during and after the reception. I will soon send pictures."
