Boonville Flower and Decor will make sure the flowers and decorations are suitable for the venue. Flowers are one of the most important parts of a wedding. There are many different options — from unique to traditional. Whatever the theme, flowers are sure to be one of the focal points. Mechelle Crissman, owner of Boonville Flower and Decor, has been a florist for more than 30 years. She has seen and worked with all different types of flowers and knows just how to make the flowers a centerpiece for someone’s special day.
