Alexis and Team
How did you find yourself owning a floral design company?
In college I worked in the event industry, interned for the visual display team at Anthropologie and majored in art and loved being able to work with my hands and with people. I freelanced for other flower designers for five years and my passion for florals grew. After a stint of picking up work for friends and friends of friends and I decided to go for it full time! I’m always looking for ways to bring my different experiences and interests into my work: from doing installs to finding ways to create more sustainable designs, to documenting my work through film photography.
What is your favorite thing about creating arrangements for events?
No two events or spaces are the same, so I like being a part of creating something different for each client and occasion. I never get bored! Location is big for me; I love tailoring designs to showcase and fit the space.
What are some of your favorite flowers?
I love orchids because they’re unique and remind me of the beach. And because they last forever and make great indoor plants, too!
Who’s your ideal client?
My ideal client is a good host or hostess; someone who wants the day to beautiful for their guests as much as for themselves. I appreciate when a client has a vision for their day and can entrust me with that vision so they can enjoy the planning process and their guests the day of the event.
