If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

Patricia Pearlman, our Founding Florista, began her love affair with flowers in 2000. Refusing to advertise in the once popular Yellow Pages, word about Patricia's unconventional floral designs began to spread.  Over the years she's done everything from weddings to fundraisers, intimate gatherings to grand scale events, deep budgets to in-kind donations.   Now she's adding something new to the mix with her latest project - Sips 'n Stems - which combines her passion for education and flowers in fun, hands-on classes. 

When she's not teaching, Patricia continues to collaborate on weddings, events, and special occasion florals for clients who want something different than mainstream design work.  Based on the belief that flowers evoke emotion and tell a story - Patricia's mission is to weave meaning and beauty in her floral designs.  With a skillful touch and intuitive approach, her work is eclectic and refreshing.
