About Courtenay Lambert Floral and Event Design
Courtenay Lambert Floral and Event Design is dedicated to the art of gorgeous, lush floral designs and spectacular special events. Our business specializes in creating unique experiences, incorporating the taste and style of our wide-ranging client base, culminating in events that exceed expectations. We stay fresh in the industry by attending industry related functions, special event conventions, and continuing education in the art of floral and event design. We affiliate with other floral and event designers across the country to learn and swap best practices. Quality is paramount. We source and use fresh floral product that is not seen every day, and we quality check designs before they leave our studio. We carry this ideal through every aspect of our business, including choosing quality flowers, linens, vases, ribbons, and any other materials we use. Our philosophy is that a special event is just that, “special”, and flowers and décor are delicacies that make it even more so. We believe the details from the most obvious ones to the smallest are of the utmost importance and what makes your event beautiful. Creating a moment that our customers will truly cherish is our goal.
Courtenay started the business in 2002 while also working full-time as a corporate consultant. A short time later, enjoying her passion for flowers and design, she transitioned from the corporate world to the floral and event design world. Whether it was planning parties with friends, hosting a beautifully decorated dinner party, or chairing fundraisers for the Junior League; she loved creating beautiful events! She enrolled in flower school in Cincinnati, and circulated business cards around the community. Through the use of social media and good, old-fashioned networking Courtenay propelled into the realm of the professional floral and event designer. She continued working in her corporate job until the end of 2007, and decided to go full time into her quickly growing business in January 2008.
Since then, CLF has grown and includes a team of top notch floral and event designers. She has worked on some of Cincinnati’s most lavish weddings and events, as well as national events. She is affiliated with some of the best wedding designers, event professional associations and industry groups, including NACE, Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book, and Chapel Designers. Courtenay has volunteered at the White House, and traveled the country to attend special event shows (including Engage, The Special Event, and others). CLF's work has been featured in numerous publications, including Special Event Magazine, Cincinnati Wedding Magazine, The Knot Magazine, Venue Magazine, Florist Review, Style Me Pretty, Wedding Chicks, Ruffled, June Bug Weddings, and many others.
