We are a small team of dedicated, hard working & fun-loving gals. We go above and beyond for our clients and are known for our can do attitudes!
Molly has spent her lifetime loving flowers. Growing up in Central New York some of her favorite memories include wandering through acres of abandoned lilac groves behind her house, visiting her grandmother’s extensive flower and vegetable gardens, and later living in Europe, surrounded by beautiful markets and floral displays that were a part of everyday life.
Molly reminds us to put the important things first, which are people and service to others. She wants to make the world a better place- more joyful, more appreciative, and more generous. She believes that it is a privilege to be a part of your milestone event and treats every single client like family.
When she is not in the flower studio you can usually find her with her amazing husband (and senior business advisor) Tom and their 5 grownish kids, enjoying time with friends, traveling the world. If she cries at your wedding, don’t be surprised!

Hattie is our resident artist and is proud to be an OG Austinite. She has BFA in Painting & Drawing as well as an MFA in Fine Arts. After a 3 year stint in Philadelphia she moved back to Texas in 2015 and, following in her grandmother's footsteps, realized that flowering was meant to be a part of her life. As our creative director she loves fun clients who trust her to design works of floral art through her deep knowledge of the principals of design: color, texture, composition, balance and movement.
When she is not in the flower studio you can find her painting in her studio, hanging with her fiancée Pete and their 2 dogs and 2 cats, playing in the garden, organizing ALL the things, and brewing a mean french press.

Kathryn is passionate about learning and has started lending a hand when it comes to flower processing and onsite design. She is extremely detail oriented and makes sure our decor offerings are in tip top shape for every single event.
