Refined. Imaginative. Bold.

Founded in 1940, when we say we have decades of experience, we really mean it. Since then, our team, and our love for flowers, has only grown.

Day-to-day, you can catch us meeting with brides, designing everyday floral arrangements, and cheering on fellow entrepreneurs & industry vendors. And of course, we source locally whenever possible, and just adore our flower farmers.

So happy you're here

Entrepreneur. Team Girl Power. Lover of design, animals, and kindness.

Getting here has been a wild ride. I grew up in Ohio, moved to Miami to get my BFA at Miami International University of Art & Design, and traveled around the world a couple times.

These days, I'm the same visionary with a bit more roots. In addition to Merkels, I also own a diner (hey, Kleifelds!). What I love most about this adventure is the brides I get to befriend as we plan the biggest party of their lives. I can’t wait to meet you!

I’m Kristin
