Dear Michael, There were so many lovely comments regarding the flowers, not only those on the tables but at the front of the ceremony and on the Escort Card Table!! You totally captured Mary’s personality with her bouquet and the bridesmaid’s bouquets and little flower girls, who were throwing their petals so beautifully. The Belle Haven Club as well as Stella Day Events went on and on about the floral designer. You have an amazing gift and thank you so much for your time and patience. It was a joy to work with you!
—Daria S.

Hi Ed,
Just wanted to let you know what a fantastic job Jacob and his team did with the outdoor arrangements at our house this week. They were very creative and the results greatly exceeded all of my expectations. Just as importantly, they were a joy to work with, something that is so needed during the hectic holiday season. Thanks for sending such a great crew!
—Elaine T.
Just a quick note to say thank you!!
As always, everything looks MAGICAL and amazing. The best part though was chatting with your fantastic team. Everyone is so talented and friendly. You can tell it isn’t about just throwing up decorations…they really take the time to get to know my home and family. What a great group you’ve assembled.Happy Holidays to you all! —Gina G.
Thank you! The house looks lovely and Chris and Brendan were thorough, well mannered, very tidy and a pleasure to work with. Can you put me on the calendar for next year? I’d love to do the same thing!

Hey Ed-Just standing outside my house in WP and enjoying how great it looks! You did an outstanding job bringing it back and it now looks so classy with beautiful shrubbery-walkway and step stone work and fence backdrop.

I could not be happier with result.

—A Happy Client!

I cannot begin to express how amazing the grapevine peace signs were received at our recent Hippies & Harleys event. They were displayed prominently and the feedback was over the top. Thank you for creating them and thank you for being a community partner with Family Centers. Wishing you all a great summer ahead! —Jennifer, Family Centers Inc.
Ed – all we can say is “wow.” The decorations look phenomenal! Neighbors have been stopping and pointing. Everett finally woke from his nap and was delighted to see his bunny all dressed up and meet his new reindeer friends. And the planters are somehow even better than last year. Thank you for working so hard to make our home festive for the holidays. We are very grateful for you and your team.We plan to stop by McArdles tomorrow and will check to see if you are there to say thank you in person.
—Gina G
My neighbors, Meg D and Fran B are raving about YOUR design in my front flower pots. I’m wrong – not too large. Just Perfect.
Thank you a million times, Ed. I’m thrilled and impressed, as always. And your teams of young men are just terrific. —Linda M
Good Lord man, WOW that room looked amazing! —Bob C., Greenwich
The crowd was totally wowed! The room was spectacular and the lighting was exactly right. The compliments were effusive!
You truly delivered on my vision – and then some. The birch in the vases was the coup de grace!
THANK YOU!!! —Susan B., Greenwich
James, I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful service. I forgot the name of the woman who helped me choose the flowers and container for the arrangements (BRENDA!) but she was wonderful. The final product far exceeded my expectations. Thank you. —Patricia K, Greenwich

Hi Ed,Thank you for the gorgeous centerpieces! As always, your work is amazing. The mums were gorgeous with beautiful fall decorating around them.

Warmest regards, —Dolly M, Greenwich

Happy Friday James-Just wanted to send you a note to tell you how gorgeous and unusual the centerpieces were on the tables throughout the Best of Greenwich event…So creative! Loved those, as well as your spectacular display at the Best of the Gold Coast party last month…You really knocked it out of the park!

Thank you for being such a valued partner to Moffly, and for making our events shine with your beautiful flowers. They add so much to our events & always garner many compliments. —Lisa H., Moffly Media

What a beautiful homecoming for me, Ed! I was thrilled to pull up to the house and see it looking glorious – lush, colorful and proud. Just what I had wished! In short, your design was 100% on target for the style of the home, and for my own esthetics. Lovely – looks like it has been here some time; no overt announcement of a brand new planting! Big smiles and so much gratitude to you…And, from what I can see – and hear from the kids, my parents and neighbors – your team was so capable, clean, quick. Bravo. 😉 —Marina

The flower arrangements you did for our reception this past Saturday could not have been more gorgeous. I am still amazed that my brief talk with your designer produced results that were absolutely perfect! Everyone commented on how beautiful the flowers were. Thank you for helping make the day special. Best wishes for the new year!

—Judy G

Hi Ed,I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work u put into my house. It looks amazing!! It is the best yet.

Your guys were so nice and extremely professional. It was truly a pleasure working with you. —Karen M.

Hi Ed,

I just got a good look at the fall display this morning. It is PHENOMENAL. You outdid yourselves. Can’t wait to see how it looks when the mums bloom. Thanks for making us the talk of the block!


Can’t thank you enough for the AMAZING flowers. Michael you are a genius…..The environment you created was just beautiful. It’s incredible to see how you survey the space and then create the most perfect environment. The contemporary “hip” feel you designed for the modern space was JUST PERFECT!! Loved every special touch you created! And the topiaries were just perfect for that space! I do think we need to have you work with JHouse on a permanent basis..the perfect fit! Many thanks again have a great weekend!


Thanks for doing such a beautiful job on my wedding bouquets and table arrangements. I wanted to share my magazine article with you from Westchester Magazine. My wedding is the featured wedding this month and McArdle’s is beautifully highlighted as a great florist in the article, and the florist contact information is displayed as well.


The care, time and quality Michael put into the flowers for our daughter’s wedding were incredible. We could not have been more pleased. McArdle’s and Michael….thank you!

—Susan P

A huge note of thanks Ed for coming to my home yesterday. I have given you free reign to pick all plants and pots because I feel very confident in your level of expertise and I am equally impressed with your professionalism and integrity. My home looks beautiful with all the new plants and makes me smile 🙂

I look forward to seeing how the ivy installation goes on the 9th!


Hi Ed,

The pots turned out absolutely gorgeous this year!!!!!! Woo hoo, they are a huge hit!!!!! I understand you used a different kind of evergreen branch, that is more upright, which looks absolutely fabulous in the pots. Plus the berries makes them look ultra festive. Very chic and lush and elegant. Thank you so much!


I wanted to write a short note of appreciation for the work done by Michael Derouin on my daughter’s wedding at Belle Haven August 17th. Michael did a beautiful job and was a pleasure to work with. We were thrilled with the flowers and are very happy we chose McArdle’s.

—Lauren B

Thank you so much for all you did to make Alice’s wedding reception magical. The room looked fantastic and all of your ideas and suggestions were invaluable. The bouquets were also spectacular and just what the bride envisioned. We both thoroughly enjoyed working with you. From the start, we felt that you completely understood what Alice wanted and your execution was flawless. It’s unusual to find someone who is both creative AND organized, but you excelled in both areas. I especially appreciated your prompt responses to all our questions and how you quickly translated our ideas to a detailed written record. I just wanted you to know how much we appreciated all you did for us.

—Anna T

Hi Ed,
Finally, I am taking the time to say once again, Thank-you!   The plantings in front of the porte cochere are beautiful.  The trees are indeed unique with character and as Dave remarked again today, \”it’s really nice to drive up and see the cool planting Ed did.\”  I couldn’t agree more which you know can be a bit rare for us but you have done such a wonderful job in many areas around our yard that it is a treat to share it with friends, family or sitting alone admiring your work!  Thank-you.
I trust you will enjoy the holiday weekend!

—Tracy F-G

Good morning. The mc ardles elves outdid it!! My home is the Christmas wonderland I hoped for. Thank you so much!!

Hi Ed,

The 4 containers that your team did for our wedding were nothing short of spectacular.

—Shelley B

Wow! I’m sorta speechless!  Just wow!!! It’s really breathtaking to me! You took a very tired front entryway and transformed it into a stunning entrance. I’m so excited & so appreciative to you and your assistant for making my front walk PRETTY!!! Yay!!! A million thanks!!

—Amy P


You have my complete approval. You are an artist and a consummate professional. Thanks for your excellent response.

—F. R.


Thank you! The flowers were beautiful. Everyone loved the centerpieces and the bouquets. I LOVED LOVED LOVED my bouquet– it was gorgeous. When the photos come in– probably not for another 6 weeks or so– I will try and remember to send you a bunch. Thanks for helping to make the day a dream come true.


Everything was perfect, thank you so much! We loved the girls bouquets and loved the way the tables looked and loved, loved the wheat grass table! When we get pictures we will send them along, thank you again for everything. it was so great to work with someone that really listened and gave Jessica and Brian just what they wanted!

—Linda T and Family

A million thanks, Ed, for your special surprise installation today!! All the plantings are even more beautiful than I imagined and we are so pleased. What a super crew you have at McArdles– hard-working, friendly, polite, and talented.

—Carolyn and Bob G

Thank you for the excellent flowers.  I had stopped purchasing flowers at  florists due to a long run of poor quality. You have restored my faith in quality florists.  Thank you.

—Tim C

Many thanks to John for taking such good care of me!  Made the order from Tokyo but was a relief to know I was in good hands, and such a pleasure to work with him.  And my friend Megan absolutely loved the flowers!

Thanks a lot, John.

—Miyuki A

Every year we buy our tree and have it delivered. Your service at the store and your delivery representatives have made buying a tree a painless experience. Very professional and your service people understand the benefits of being friendly.  We have encouraged our friends to visit your nursery.

—Dean N

Just wanted to Thank you for your quick service and beautiful plantings. Olympia did a wonderful job and was very knowledgeable and helpful in our selections. She also completed the window boxes quickly as my daughter-in-law is having an engagement party on Saturday night and wanted to have them displayed.
Thanks again and I was very pleased with your excellent service.


Yesterday’s Blessing and Dedication was a HUGE success and very heartfelt for hundreds.  My gratitude to you and your team for helping us last minute to prepare Mary’s new home.   Your work is gorgeous!
Thanks again!



Once again your team has outdone yourselves!!!!


Hi Ed,
Thanks for your work of art yesterday. My husband came home and said it was your best ever.

—Cynthia R

Dear James,

I hope you enjoyed your holiday.

I wanted to express my appreciation to you of your business. I have been coming to McArdles for many years and I can always count on how helpful everyone is, and how lovely the experience. I did however, want to specifically mention how special Sari has always been… whether I am there to purchase a few orchids, a gift, Christmas trees, and most recently, as you know, to plan the service for my dearest friend.

Sari is more than ‘just knowledgeable’ with flowers and plants, more than ‘just knowledgeable’ with what works and what does not, she has a great talent. She has that extra special added touch that completes the ‘original idea’ or ‘intension,’ with great attention to detail. Sari also has the most dependable manner, without being pushy, she guides in a way that I am able to feel confident when I leave with what I have purchased or with the direction I am going in when planning an event. She is always available, with a smile and with very clear input and great ‘taste level.’

Life is busy, but the importance of having ‘things’ done right – with follow through and precision makes everyday just a little easier and a lot more beautiful.
Thank you…

—Beth S



—Lauren W

Hi Ed,
