An idea factory and working floral boutique, the brick and mortar Katydid shop is bustling with browsing customers, new client consultations, and floral arranging at the workbench. Small dogs Moses and Daisy are frequently seen napping in the most sunny spots of the shop.
Katydid founder, Kate Duffy, has over a decade of experience designing whimsical, timeless affairs. Through the years strong relationships have been built with venues from barns on rustic properties to the finest hotels in NYC, and the most excellent vendors such as photographers, graphic artists, caterers, tent companies, and lighting and draping specialists. During consultations at Katydid the vast knowledge of the best of the wedding industry is happily shared with clients.
Katydid offers delivery of arrangements to Monmouth and Ocean Counties, and as a member of B Brooks Fine flower network wires high quality florals throughout the country. Weekly house flowers and subscription gifts are also available.
Kate continues to marvel when Katydid weddings are frequently published in iconic bridal magazines as well as online blogs such as “Style me pretty”, “Green wedding shoes” and “Carats and cakes”.
Past clients include rock and roll royalty, award winning novelists and producers, and POTUS. Katydid is the proud personal florist for NJ’s most beloved celebrity, as well as NJ’s first family.
Working with Kate and her team on my daughter's wedding was an absolute pleasure. My daughter put her vision for her wedding in front of them...and Katydid brought the magic.
Your talent, creativity, warmth (lots of support!) was everything to me. How lucky we were to find you! The wedding was beyond anything that we could ever have hoped for. Pure Perfection!
Kate was excellent at organizing and managing this from start to finish. Her financial estimates matched the final cost perfectly. She had excellent relationships with many vendors.
Katydid was not only my daughters Florist, she was also our full planner. The attention to every detail was incredible. Our wedding planning was so easy, as Kate handled it all.
Our passion is design for at home tented affairs, many of which are featured in our Instagram gallery.
