Our Philosophy


Custom Tailored

At the Cutting Garden we strive to create unique arrangements to help make your event striking and successful.  We would love to help you create fun and fantastic memories!   From birthday parties to wedding parties, dinner parties to graduation we can provide you with bouquets, arrangements and corsages that will be memorable and appropriate for your special event.

We grow our own flowers in our own cutting garden and have all of the traditional resources to back us up.  Given enough time we can plant especially for your occasion. 


Experienced Service

Nicky who has lived in Manson Washington for 40 years has been planning weddings, receptions and reunions for 18 years.  in 1994  when her daughter was married in Palo Alto while residing in Michigan with the groom and family in Alaska she met the challenge.  Often times the venues are far from home for both the couple or their families and Nicky has experience in helping take care of all the details required for such events.  The many fabulous venues in the Lake Chelan Valley provide our clientele with a vast number of options to fit every budget.  It is our mission to make your dreams come true in an affordable fashion.
