Hello! My Name is Rachel, the proud owner of Stems and Things. We specialize in event styling and floral arrangements for all types of weddings and events. In addition to fresh flowers, we also dabble in silk arrangements from hospitality and corporate settings to arrangements for your home. I strive to create unique and one of a kind arrangements that compliment your design and personal style. 


My Story

I am a Central Florida native, wife, interior designer, creative, traveler, with a lover of all things floral. I founded Stems & Things while pursing my dream of being an interior designer, and fell in love with floral design while trying to incorporate unique arrangements into my own design projects. Finding the perfect arrangement was somewhat challenging, so I set out to create my own arrangements for projects, that I know would fit perfectly into my vision. I am inspired by modern compositions and enjoy putting together unexpected textures and colors.

I currently work as a full time Interior Designer for a firm in Winter Park, FL, while continuing to follow my love for flowers. I continue to create fresh flower arrangements for weddings and other types of luxury events as well as silk arrangements for corporate projects and residences. Flower arranging is a passion that I plan to continue for the rest of my life and hope to bring joy to others through my arrangements for years to come.

Contact me for ideas and custom florals for your next event!
