Sister Stems began when we got together one early 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'? So 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!
