Our mission is simple: with each class we teach and wedding we design, we aim to help our community thrive and grow.
- Our Flowers -
We specialize in working with locally grown flowers. Choosing to source from local farms means that:
- Our flowers are as fresh as flowers get.
- Toxic preservatives, excess packaging, or jet fuel aren't needed for delivery, and we get to work with unusual, delicate flowers that wouldn't survive long-distance shipping.
- Our work helps support our neighbors, the local economy, and the local agricultural community.
When we can't find local flowers, we prioritize purchasing American grown and imported flowers from farms that are certified through the Florverde Sustainable Flowers, Veriflora Sustainably Grown, or Rainforest Alliance certification programs.

Rachel Gordon | Owner | Florist
Hi! I'm Rachel. I know the lyrics of far too many show tunes, love all things yellow, and believe that coloring inside the lines is optional.
I'm always amazed by how flowers can bring people together. Whether you're looking to become a florist or planning a wedding, you're in the right place. Welcome to our community—one that connects neighbors, farmers, clients, students, and florists. I can't wait to meet you.
(...but please bring me Sudafed when you visit, ok? I'm allergic to flowers. Oops.)
