seeing your designs and decorating talents demonstrated
at a local home furnishing store, I was so pleased to
learn that you also did floral arrangements. Your unique
perspective on design, function, and aesthetics really
contributed to making our wedding one that we will never
forget. As a matter of fact, people are still talking
about the creative upside down tulip floral arrangements!
I think your background experience and natural instincts
in creative design helped to transform our ideas into
a work of art. You really listened to what we had to
say, and we felt very comfortable with you from the
get-go. I don’t think we would have never been
able to pull it off without your insight of what “looks
right” and what functionally “works well.”
really did a terrific job, and I always recommend you
to anyone I know could use a helping creative hand in
decorating, design, or flower arranging. You’re
a one-stop shop for anyone needing a little nudge, which
was why we made the right choice in choosing you for
our wedding. Thanks so much for contributing to our
wonderful day, and all the best in your future!

wanted to write you and thank you for the beautiful
job you did on the flowers at our wedding. The bouquets,
centerpieces, and other fine details looked fabulous.
Everyone was commenting on how great they looked- even
my dad was asking “how did they get those tulips
upside-down in the vase?” You know you did a great
job, when even the men are noticing the details!
also wanted to let you know that it was very comforting
to know that we didn’t need to worry about you
and your talents. You made us feel at ease with your
extreme creativity, professionalism and punctuality.
You truly are a master at your art of florals, and we
will always be grateful for your beautiful contributions
and up-beat attitude that made our day one we will never
again for all that you have done. We look forward to
having you do baby shower décor and floral designs
in the future!

Whipple works magic in staging homes! With just
a pillow here, a colorful plate there, place settings
and plants, she transforms dull and uninspiring
into eye popping. Empty house? Call Lo to rent
perfect furniture and then stage. Got 3 offers
on a listing the 2nd week on market, due to her
expertise. Don't list without Lo!

Dear Lo (and readers of your website)
family had a great experience working with Lo on our
house staging. She was very friendly, clear and fast
in her work! She could listen to what we needed and
produce a beautiful space in an amazingly short time.
Our house for sale went from empty and dull to lovely,
put together and inviting in just a few days. She also
worked well within the budget we requested.She was easy
to get in touch with by phone or email. Our house received
three offers within 25 days of being treated to the
Lo touch. I'm very pleased and would recommend her highly!
Whipple has been an invaluable asset to my Real
She stages my listed homes for sale; I give her
service as a gift to my clients.
I tell them to get rid of the junk, clutter, etc.
Lo comes in with her happy smile and wonderful
spirit and make the home picture ready.
My clients love her! They thank me profusely for
sending her and love the way their homes look
when she’s done.
I couldn’t do what I do without Lo’s

As someone who loves beauty
and is organizationally challenged, I have been grateful
many times for Lo's creative eye, her quick grasp of
my style, and her stellar work ethic. As important as
those are, however, I've been struck over and over again
with how wonderful she is to work with: reliable, prompt,
cheerful, and funny. She's never left my house without
leaving it a happier place. I recommend her work and
her wonderful self without reservation!
with Lo was wonderful from start to finish. She is easy
going, relaxed, and soooo creative. She also has the
uncanny ability of being able to listen to ideas and
then recreate them with flowers and decorations as if
she could read your mind! Everything we talked about,
Lo was able to bring to life for our wedding!
Love, Love, Love!
Lo came into my life many years ago when we both worked
at Zanzibar downtown. I was drawn to her first because
all of the customers would ask me... "Who did the
windows???? They are amazing!" When I asked...they
replied, Lo, of course! This was an everyday occurance.
The longer I worked there, the more I saw her magic,
as did everyone else. People would come into the store
off the streets just because of her talent. What a gift.
As time went by, she was chosen to do many projects
with many people in many places. She never got anything
but wild applause. A few years ago, I moved into a new
house. I thought I did a pretty good job putting things
in place, etc. She walked in and said...oh no no no...and
quickly, effortlessly, began to move things from here
to there until it looked like a house in a magazine.
It's just what she does..perfectly. I have worked with
Lo on several projects and am always amazed at what
she does. There is no training that measures up to what
she comes by naturally. She is truley the "Queen"
of design. Intrust your wishes to her. She will be your
genie and your wishes granted...and then some.

have used Lo Whipple to assist me in decorating two
of my personal homes. It is nothing short of amazing
what Lo can do, especially on a limited budget. She
is not only incredibly creative, she is also very conscious
of her client's money. And, because of her creativity
and her experience, she is able to make suggestions
to achieve the result within the budgetary constraints.
As an example, not once but three times, Lo painted
(yes, paint, as in artist - think Kenneth Brown, the
decorator on HGTV) canvases so that the room would come
together. Also, I like that she attempted to use what
I had as opposed to purchasing new items. And, she is
fantastic at using/placing items in a way that you never
thought of. She is professional and a joy to work with.
I think anyone would be pleased with her work and working
am a real estate broker and have used Lo Whipple to
assist me in "staging" my listings. The houses
always showed so much better when they were staged.
And, because 82% of buyers start their searches on the
internet, the houses that Lo staged for me looked so
much better in the pictures on the internet. There is
no doubt in my mind that the houses sold quicker and
at a better price than if they had not been staged.
I highly recommend Lo to any realtor or home seller."

did the flower arrangements for my wedding – centerpieces,
bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, and cake! The process
was very smooth and since my trust in both her artistic
ability and professionalism was 110% I did not have
to micromanage that aspect of my wedding. What a relief!
Lo was able to create exactly what I wanted even though
I was not able to vocalize my vision, and EVERYONE commented
on how imaginative and beautiful her flowers arrangements
were. Thank you for making our day and our pictures
wife hired Lo to paint a mural for a nursery in our
home. The end result was above and beyond our expectations!
Lo took my wife’s ideas and applied her own heart
and soul to the project. She worked tirelessly and created
a true work of art which is sure to become the envy
of all parents. We absolutely LOVE our nursery and we’re
thrilled that our baby will be surrounded by such beauty.
has been a personal friend of mine since 1986. She has
transformed my house into a home. I can always count
on the most spectacular Christmas tree and decorations
during the holidays (buying new ornaments every two
years-she stays on our budget). She turns my sometimes
bah humbug demeanor into the most joyous Christmas cheer.
I have been known to spend hours sipping on egg nog
while everyone was asleep and staring in joyous wonder
at Oh Christmas Tree, the dancing lights reflecting
against walls that she had painted for me. And the good
tidings running through my veins, family and fellowship…Lo
kicks it up a notch. She makes Charlie Brown Christmas
Tree, middle class mother feel as rich as anyone on
sees art where I see an old picture from my father’s
estate of garage sale purchases gathering cob webs.
Junk to me but it’s just perfect over the Cindy
Crawford living room suite that she picked out for me.
How does she create POP!!! Like that? She can put colors
together that you wouldn’t dream of and the uniqueness
of the presentation just makes you say WOW!!!
1986, she painted a mural of a Brontosaurus and Tyrannosaurus
Rex on my 3 and 1 year old boys’ bedroom wall.
As she was putting on the last touches, placing the
matching linens and comforter on the two twin beds.
I knew then that my children were to have a better life
than my own. Auntie Lo had done it once again.
loves her work and it shows. She dives in to her projects
whether it be a wedding, staging, redux, or catering
and planning a wonderful party for friends. She stays
strict to schedules and makes her deadlines. I have
a deadline right now for new carpeting. She picks the
colors in my life. I trust her completely to know what
I will love even when I don’t have a clue. She
will make it happen and I will be astounded by the result.
put off being astounded by Lo. It will inspire you to
do so much more. AND….you’ll gain a friend.
