Sister Stems began when we got together one fall evening over a glass of wine to talk about our hopes & dreams. Sounds pretty cheesy right? Honestly though, we were just searching for a fun excuse to spend more sister time together. Between our busy lives, 9-5's, and living almost an hour apart, we needed that "something else" that got us together, & out of our element for a change. The goal? Fun & refreshing, but still stimulating. We brainstormed until flowers came to mind - we were always helping friends & family with decor for parties & showers, so we thought, why not make it a real 'thing'? We got on Youtube, subscribed to every flower blog we could find, & offered to do a few free orders for friends & family to get our work out there. And thus, Sister Stems was born!
As we've gone through various phases, our business has truly bloomed into something incredible & totally unexpected. At first, we started with our concept - "blooms + baskets" - party & small event blooms, and creative gift baskets, filled with locally made artisan products. As time went by & our work got out there to the real world, we started to receive inquiries for larger events, baptisms, and even weddings! Before we knew it, we were knee deep in a la carte blooms & basket orders, weekday AND weekend event orders. So after almost a year of saying 'yes' to every opportunity, and investing in private design classes, it was time to simplify, and claim our niche. We had done it all, now it was time to specialize in what we loved most - that's when 'blooms + baskets' changed to 'floral design' and here we are today!

what I love most about working with flowers:
There's nothing that brings me more joy & tranquility than working through the process of creating a beautiful floral design. I have always been my own biggest critic - I tended to always internalize the idea that there was always room to be better, to do better - But with flowers, I've gotten out of that mindset. I have found peace in experiencing the fact that the undone, unfinished, organic nature of flowers is what makes a design beautiful. Each bloom, each green, each grass is unique in it's own way & somehow, they all come together in perfect harmony. Flowers are used for almost every phase of life - happy times, sad times, to celebrate, to say I'm sorry, to say I miss you + to show love - I love the joy that they bring to people, and I feel lucky to be able to share in that joy.

THE SISTER STEMS TEAM
Our event team is made up of the greatest boss ladies around - our nearest & dearest friends. When it comes to event and wedding prep, there are so many tasks to be done behind the scenes - processing, design days, delivery, installation & breakdown - & no one understands us, sees our vision, or works harder than our besties. They're seriously THE BEST. We trust them with the world, and with our clients because they prove time and time again that there's no one better to have by your side than your (extended) sisters.
