  • Rusi Patel informs :

    Baimai Flowers are the Origional Floral Decorators for all Parsi/ Irani functions;

    Baimai Flora is just for Gujarati/ Marwadi type of designs and functions.The rest florists either sub contract the work(but for a couple of others) and the balance are roadside malis’.

    The best mandap decorator is Sameer Tanna in the name of Tanna Decorators situated at Chira bazar.Tel:98210 66642. He is cheap, polite and the work / material he uses are of the most Superior quality.
