What Our Client's Say

Kim creates magic on a large scale – beautiful corporate events made with inspiring creativity. I highly recommend her.

Ira Mitchell

I have known Kim Chan in a professional capacity for over 20 years. We first met when she owned Corporate Stems and supplied flowers to my company, Harcourts Grenadier Real Estate Ltd. Kim then left to further her career and level of expertise left New Zealand and travelled abroad and settled in Hong Kong to grow her talents as an event designer and decorator. After gaining huge experience in Hong Kong both with the Asian and ex-pat market, Kim has returned to settle in her hometown of Christchurch and is now reestablished in her thriving business of weddings and functions and dealing with large corporate companies. Kim has huge potential, energy, enthusiasm and will always go the extra mile to provide the best of the best to meet her clients needs. I highly recommend her.

Rob McCormack

Harcourts Grenadier
Kim has an amazing creative flair, balanced by exceptional organisational skills to present modern, contemporary floral artistry, often with innovative cutting-edge designs.

Murray Worthington

Hotel Manager, Oaks Lagoons
Kim has done a fantastic job in decorating Waipuna. I felt totally relaxed about giving her a free hand and she has created magic with drapes and furniture, florals and other small touches, which have given Waipuna the warm, inviting feeling it now has. I was always “in the loop” in terms of what she was planning. Kim has the ability to see in advance how the end product will look – and in Waipuna’s case the end product is amazing. I will be happy to engage Kim for any future decorating and planning.

Kim was a delight to work with, punctual and professional. She understood the brief, and exceeded my expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services!”

Kim Chan understood our brief of understated elegance and met it perfectly with bowls of red roses, red tealight holders and candles, which set off the tables perfectly for our CINZ Conference Gala Dinner at the Isaac Theatre Royal. A big thumbs up.

Kim designed, developed and built a display for our Edible Ellerslie feature at the 2013 Ellerslie International Flower Show. This garden was the feature of a food inspired marquee and received many positive comments by both the show public and other garden designers. Not only was the work of a very high standard, but she kept to the brief and budget, and delivered the project on time and without any dramas, despite a short lead in. I found her to be reliable, hardworking, honest and trustworthy. It was an absolute pleasure working with Kim and I would have no hesitation working with her again or recommending to others.

Dave Mee, CEO

Ellerslie International Flower Show
Over the last two years Kim has designed, developed, grown and built a display garden in our Smeg Edible Ellerslie feature. The idea was that the celebrity chefs such as Jo Seagar, Nadia Lim and Jonny Schwass could use any herbs from Kim’s Garden throughout their demonstrations. During these sessions we had many positive comments by both the show public and other garden designers, particularly in respect to the marquee decorations. Give her any budget and she will create exactly what you are looking for.

Kate Hillier

General Manager, Ellerslie International Flower Show
Kim worked alongside me during the design and build of a unique corporate transformation experience. My task was to transform a three thousand square meter warehouse into a cross between a mission statement, interactive museum and corporate roadshow. The process took about five weeks, and during this time Kim was an essential part of the team, translating brainstorming sessions into very tangible designs. In doing so she co-ordinated painters, builders, audio-visual technicians and a variety of specialists in order to achieve the vision. Kim is hugely capable, comfortable with ambiguity and I would not hesitate to work alongside her again.

Thank you for all you did Kim, it was a fantastic morning! There’s still a buzz around the House and some excited stories from all who took part.

Kim was invaluable in helping us plan and decorate our wedding. We live in London, so arranging a wedding in Christchurch was always going to be difficult. However, Kim dealt with all our requests (and there were a few!) with calmness and creativity. She instantly understood the aesthetic we were trying to achieve, and not only fulfilled our requests but made suggestions that improved upon them. For example, when we presented her with images that we’d found – of flowers or decorations – she was able to recreate the exact effect we wanted – only better. On the day itself, she was discreet, organised, hard-working and professional. She worked brilliantly with everyone, from the catering team to the venue manager and our families. We were nervous about having someone help with our wedding – worried that handing over too much control might mean our wedding didn’t feel like ‘us’. We needn’t have worried – Kim made the whole process a thousand times easier. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

Anna Saunders

Associate Editor Marie Claire Magazine, London
Kim gave us a range of options that we chose from and were able to stay within our budget. She was calm when preparations ran until the last minute and we appreciate her communication effort . Her table decorations were perfect as well as bouquet, flower bracelets and button holes. Our guests heaped plenty of praise for the floral decorations. Kim goes above and beyond what we expected. She even travelled to view the venue beforehand for us. We highly recommend Kim Chan for your wedding decorating and planning.

Yuliya and Maurice, Kazakhstan

Wow – what to say. The flowers were PERFECT! Exactly what I wanted. I’m not sure how you managed it after my confusing and indecisive requests and ideas, but they were beautiful. My bouquet, the girls’ bouquets, the guys’ buttonholes, the cake flowers and the wine barrel flowers were all exactly what I wanted. The colour, size and style was just right. Thank you so, so much.

Julia

Kim was brilliant to work with. She was calm and relaxed and totally professional. She also made us feel so welcome when we visited her to share our ideas and thoughts. For a bride that did not know very much about flowers, she was the best!! But she would be equally amazing with a person who knew exactly what she wanted. Kim was so accommodating and worked to our budget without making us feel uneasy. And the end result was perfect! I recommend Kim completely.

Rebecca Banks

I found Kim very helpful and easy to detail with. As I live in Auckland and was getting married in Akaroa, I met with Kim once. After a few emails she had everything sorted – flowers, candles, church pew bows, vases and extra decorations. She had great ideas and took the stress out of it all.

Juliet Broom

Thank you for the lovely beautiful gorgeous flowers you did for Rebecca and Stuart’s wedding day! We have had many comments on them all. The urns were absolutely lovely here at the house the next day, and lasted beautifully for the week — thanks so much for suggesting we do this. Many thanks for being there for us when we needed you. It could have been much more stressful if we hadn’t had great people working for us!

Mother of bride

It is rare to find someone you can trust implicitly to do their best for you without counting the cost. I am pleased to say we found that person in Kim Chan. Kim was key to making our daughter’s wedding a unique event and, in her words, “the fairy tale wedding that she always dreamed of.” Our guests were amazed at how smoothly the whole function flowed and the attention to every detail, like the signage for the guests’ parking and drop off, and the rose petals on the lawn before the bridal party walked into the marquee. We have received numerous compliments about the amazing décor, beautiful floral arrangements and incredible chandeliers. Kim helped make the function a huge success. We are very grateful.

Clive and Nancy

Kim was fantastic from the start. She listened and captured exactly the style we were looking for. Kim and her team delivered a marquee and venue better than we could have imagined. You cannot go past this amazing talented lady to give your big day the extra ‘woah’ factor. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Kim and we would very highly recommend her work and professionalism. Thanks for everything Kim. Mike and I thank you for making our day the best and adding your ‘woah’ to it!

Kate and Mike

We would like to thank you for the outstanding job you did with our wedding flowers, buttonholes and corsages. With only 1 month to organize our wedding, and minimum notice and input from me, your professional and caring manner made it so easy for me. I knew what I didn’t want but nothing more specific, and I was over the moon with what I received. Kim went way above and beyond my expectations. She did our venue flowers and the flowers were stunning – more than I could ever have imagined. Such an amazing lady – I would recommend Kim to anyone looking for wedding flowers!! You have a real talent and such an eye for detail – truly gifted. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping make my day so memorable.

Callie and Nic

Using Kim Chan to help style our wedding was the best decision we could have made! We had an old grainery shed on the farm that we saw as having great potential for our wedding reception but we had no idea on how to go about it – this is where Kim came in! She had an amazing vision and absolutely transformed it with soft romantic blooms, fairy lights, lace lanterns and silver candelabras. We also had some specific ideas of our own which she worked with and incorporated. The end result was better than we could have ever imagined. Kim also did our all bouquets and buttonholes for the wedding which were just absolutely beautiful. On the actual day Kim worked in the background to ensure our day ran smoothly and everything was as it should be. Kim helped to make our dream venue a reality and we can’t recommend her enough.

Leigh Shera

You totally blew my expectations and created something more amazing than I could have imagined. Thank you so, so much for the gorgeous theming and floral arrangements that made our wedding so beautiful and special.

Kimberly and Matt
