and learn our story

who we are 

The Manic Botanic is an award-winning event design and décor company known for creating breathe taking events for couples and clients looking to have their vision come to life.

First and foremost we are floral designers, and we are very passionate about that. In any design we create, the flowers are the focal feature, even if the design is decidedly simple. 

Whether intimate or grand, we believe the best way to showcase flowers and design is through imaginative and elegant events.

what we offer

The Manic Botanic offers custom design, florals, and event decor for weddings and events of all sizes. 

We offer fresh cut flowers from all over the world, flown in and delivered right to our studio. We love learning about new flower varieties and trying something new. 

Services we offer include: event design, floral design, event rentals, linen rentals, custom built ceremony structures, and additional ceremony rental structures. 

our story

Owner and lead designer, Lillian Bashenko, learned floral design as an apprentice in 2001. What transpired was a love of flowers, a passion for wedding design, and the opening of The Manic Botanic in Ocean City, in 2002. In 2012, as the demand for our work grew, we moved our business into a 5,000 square foot studio in Corbin City, where we decided to focus on weddings and events.

Our group of talented and dedicated designers are passionate about the work we do. We believe in treating every single event as if it were our own.

"The Manic Botanic is incredible. They will make your vision come to life! They are extremely professional and helpful throughout the entire process. They even coordinated with my venue directly to ensure things went smoothly. I cannot say enough good things about my experience. Highly recommended!"

-Katie R

"I am so grateful I can say I had the wedding of my dreams and I absolutely loved every vendor I picked. But of all my vendors, The Manic Botanic was the one who completely blew my mind. I have no word to describe the beauty of their work. They clearly know what they are doing and can realize anything you have on your mind. "
