owner + florist

I am the original flower mama (according to my kiddos) and proud owner of SSD. I’ve been a part of the floral industry for over thirty years. Growing up I never would have imagined it was possible to have a job that required so much work (seriously so much) but be SO REWARDING! I pride myself on floral design and love working with fun and funky blooms, textures, and color palettes. 

When I am not at the studio you will find me: working, working & still working on what I love most, being a full-fledged foodie, buying plants at the green house, & spending time with my family!

what is your favorite flower?
I’ve never met a flower I didn’t love!
what's the crazies thing you've ever done?
Got married … ;)

Hello! I am Jonquil, most people call me Joni, the corsage & boutonniere virtuoso as well as Shelly’s sister. When my hands are not covered in floral glue, I love camping with my family of 6, listening to podcasts, and doing yoga!

What is your favorite flower?

Jonquil (In the Daffodils family)

If you were an animal what would you be?

I would be a Ringtail Lemur because I love to play much more than I like to work! ;P

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

Definitely agreeing to work for my sister!


Of course none of this would be possible without the
help of our entire team, volunteers, & family members- xoxo
