  3. 3. Sandra de Ovando was educated at the French Lycee in Mexico and then completed a college degree in Hotel Management in Paris. Afterwards, she traveled through Europe and Asia where she discovered exotic flowers, plants and fruit. Her travels brought her to New York, where she opened her first shop, combining her passion for flowers with her refined management and customer service skills. Her phenomenal success led to the opening of Ovando in June, 2003. Daily News August 2008 Fashion's 50 Most Powerful: No. 33 SANDRA DE OVANDO, florist. West Village-based flower merchant Ovando treats her bouquets like designer collections. Each quarter, she decides on a seasonal color palette drawing from runway trends.

  4. 4. PROJECT METHODOLOGY Each account has a dedicated account manager to ensure every need is quickly and efficiently attended to. Our delivery drivers and on-site design staff are quick, courteous, extremely neat, and professional. Ovando has a production studio located in the New York Flower Market to ensure efficiency and effectiveness for the scope of the work, including quality control and reactivity to last minute changes and modifications. QUALITY AND INTEGRITY Ovando is a first class company. We have first class products, and we provide first class service. We have first class clients, and we only hire a first class staff, comprised of individuals of integrity, passion, dedication, and a desire to grow with the company. Our commitment is two–fold: 1) To provide customer service that is second to none; ensuring that our customer’s needs are not only met, but that their expectations are surpassed. 2) Everything we do is done with the intention of providing our customers with a product and an experience that will surpass their expectations and keep them coming back for more. FLORAL QUALITY STANDARDS •Flowers are hand-selected daily by our design staff. •Flowers are cleaned and treated as soon as they arrive at the studio and are then stored at the correct temperature in our refrigerated storage unit. •Arrangements are made no earlier than 24 hrs before delivery date. •All arrangements are inspected by the head designer before they leave the studio to double check flower and design quality.
  5. 5. RESTAURANT PARTNERSHIPS Many of our team members, including the owner of our company and myself, have backgrounds in the hospitality industry. This insider experience really sets us apart from other floral design companies in giving us a thorough understanding of the industry demands. We know that the visual impact of a restaurant is the first step in the hospitality experience. We understand luxury and the importance of personal service. Time is a luxury and with that in mind we strive for our service to be seamless; prompt and accurate. - We provide detailed, full color menus with a sample selection of arrangements showing a range of styles and budget limits for use during event booking appointments. - Our clients are provided their own email address to send orders to, which we confirm upon receipt. - We create compelling, inventive seasonal designs for events tailored to a specific client’s preferences and budget. - Our on-site design teams are available for very early morning installations and late evening breakdowns. - We understand the demands of fine dining establishments and do everything in our power to accommodate last minute or special orders from your guests. Our private dining clients are given several alternate phone numbers in the event that they need to reach their account manager outside of business hours.
