Creating A Scene's owner, Alaina Walker, works with clients to enliven indoor and outdoor spaces with custom displays of silk and live plants. The company's consultants arrange foliage and flowers into elegant centerpieces for weddings or other special events, and they can even supply plant party favors that guests can take home with them or devour on the ride home. The retail showroom mimics that of any other florist shop, save for the sheer variety of its inventory, which includes unique specimens such as pineapple plants. The company's healthy-plant guarantee ensures the longevity of purchases, and its plant-maintenance service sees the crew making regular return trips to local businesses to fertilize, water, trim, and polish rented plants and replace any that have wilted. Creating A Scene also donates funds through its Pick A Plant program, which awards 30% of each eligible purchase to a nonprofit of the customer's choice.
