Sorry, I don’t have anything.  I did my flowers with Publix (grocery store) and I dont’ think we had a contract really either.

I am also doing my flowers with someone who works out of her own home, but she was very specific about having a contract. She details exactly how many bouquets, corsages, centerpieces, etc are going to be there and what flower types and colors will be in each, what vases are going to be used, time and date of delivery and set up, and the locations for each, and an outline of the deposit schedule. Each individual item has a price associated with it (like Bride’s Bouquet $275), then these are totaled up at the bottom, handling fee and taxes are added, and the grand total is listed.

For anyone booking a vendor working out of their home, I recommend a simple document that details specifically what services are being provided (in this case, how many bouquets, etc and the type of flowers to be used), and what is expected in return (i.e. payment and by when). My photographer works out of her house and she used a very simple one page sheet that did just that. What she also did was make a place for both of us to sign and date the document in agreement; we signed two copies so that she had one and we had one. Usually something that is explict in what the expectations are for both sides will hold weight in a small claims court, should anything happen.

I’d at least have her type up something like that. Or if she won’t, type it up yourself and ask her if she agrees to it. Good luck!

Not sure if I can upload a PDF on here, but if you send me a private message with your email address I’d be happy to send you the contract template that my florist used. We also have an addendum spelling out each item that she’s providing (my bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, centerpieces, etc.), detailing what types of flowers will be going in each. Hope this is helpful!
