About Wishing Tree

Photography: KidChan Studio

Who are we? Wishing Tree is a team of over 20 floral designers based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We operate from our head office and boutique in Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur. Since 1999, our clients have entrusted us with creating the ambiance for their most treasured life events and floral arrangements for every occasion. This is an honor and a responsibility that we at Wishing Tree take very seriously, and we are proud to deliver floral arrangements of outstanding quality and style, superior service and attention to detail, enthusiasm and dependability each and every time.

Lily Chew is Wishing Tree's owner and director who started the business in 1999 after her own wedding in Kuala Lumpur. Our creative department is headed by Adrian Poon, our talented creative director since 2000.

Our quality seal - guaranteed! Meticulous attention and care, creativity and elegance are the hallmark of the Wishing Tree brand in which our arrangements and events are initially conceptualized, created and delivered on the big day.
Just as our clients are unique, our floral designs and events are customized to suit every style, personality, theme and budget. There is only one thing we require of our clients – that they dare to dream, and it will be our wish come true.

Taking it to a whole new level. In 2009, we commemorate ten incredible years of creating fabulous memories through Wishing Tree’s brand of floral artistry. To mark this milestone in Wishing Tree’s history, we present to you The Wishing Tree Blog. This is our online journal to share our joys, inspiration and ideas with you, and for you to let us know what inspires you and how we can help with anything floral - it will be our utmost pleasure. We will also post store promotions and Wishing Tree news and announcements here, so be sure to check back often!

We hope that you will continue to be a part of our journey through this blog and look forward to your comments and suggestions. Thanks for stopping by!

Kind words from our clients

Our clients are the best! We are always so touched when we receive thank you notes and messages from our clients after their events. As a wonderful bonus, we have developed and maintained treasured friendships with many of our partners, associates, brides and their families for the past 10 years (and counting!).

Here are some excerpts from notes and e-mails sent by our dear clients:


Dear Lily,

I wanted to drop you a note with a big THANK YOU for the beautiful flowers at the church and at the wedding reception. Everything complemented each other beautifully for my theme - from the flowers on the canopy drapes, table arrangements, the cake table and our main table. The centerpieces were gorgeous and our guests were totally smitten with the flowers! Thank you so much!

Best Wishes,
Elizabeth James


Dear Lily,

We had a great time last Friday and really enjoyed hearing wonderful comments from our guests about the floral decor! Janet's bouquet was absolutely superb, especially with the sea shells in it. She loved it so much that she was quite reluctant to throw the bouquet! The decor and the ambiance were just marvelous and the table decorations were simply stunning - so creatively done.

Special kudos to your assistant Woan Mee for her attention in your absence, and your entire (super!) crew for getting the hall ready in super-quick time! Thank you so much for your personal touch throughout our event as well. We will definitely recommend your services for future events, corporate or personal. Well done, Wishing Tree!

Best regards,
Leo and Janet Vincent

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Wishing Tree decorate events and weddings outside the Klang Valley?

Yes we do! We have decorated weddings in Seremban, Ipoh, Penang, Langkawi... even as far as Kuching, Sarawak!

Is there a minimum fee for customized wedding decor?
We do not usually apply minimum charges for customized weddings as we cater specifically to your requirements and budget. However, charges will differ for different locations, for example, a church wedding decor can start from RM2,000 and other venues from RM3,000.

If I choose to have only one type of flower for my wedding, will that help to reduce the cost for my wedding decorations?
It would be safe to say "yes" since a substantial part of the budget goes to purchasing the flowers, be it local or imported flowers. However, the amount of reduced cost is subjective as you will have to make up for the quantity of the particular type of flower used.

Can I reuse the flowers for one wedding venue in a second venue?
Definitely! While there is a minimal charge for transportation to the second location, we will provide a touch-up for free! But please bear in mind that the flowers may not appear so fresh the second time around, considering our hot and humid weather.

Does Wishing Tree charge a fee for design concepts?
We do not. In fact, we provide consultation, coordination and planning at no extra charge.

How many consultations am I allowed, and is there a maximum number?
In our 10 years, we usually get it right in the first or second round :) We do not fix a limit for number of consultations.

I've heard that Wishing Tree only uses imported flowers. Can I use local flowers instead and how will that affect my costs?
It is not true that we only use imported flowers, although we do prefer to use them for the simple fact that local flowers do not offer much variety. Using local blooms may reduce costs by 20-30%.

Wishing Tree seems to have a reputation for being expensive. Why is that?
We've heard this many times before! But our clients assure us that our prices are very competitive and great value for money; we can custom-design a wedding or event for a minimum of RM2,000 that looks fabulous.

If you have any questions about our products and services, we would love to hear from you! Send us an e-mail at info@wishingtree.com.my and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
