"All the summer world was bright and fresh, and brimming with life….
There was cheer in every face and a spring in every step."
- Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
At Pickletown Flower Co we thrive on bringing cheer to every face through the beauty and joy that comes with our flowers. Our flower truck - a delivery van turned mobile flower studio - can be found popping up all over metro Denver, Golden and Littleton. We currently offer a monthly subscription service where you receive and abundant selection of blooms on the 3rd weekend of each month. We are enamored with the diversity of beauty found in flowers. Fragrance, texture and color - each engaging our senses in a unique way. Often times the most beautiful flowers are found on the pages of magazines, on the screens on our devices or at the weddings we attend. Our mission is to bring those flowers directly to you. Each of us deserves that kind of diverse beauty in our lives.
We gather our flowers from several different sources. During the cold months of the year, we most often purchase through growers in California. When the Colorado growing season gets underway, we grow a special selection of blooms at our own Pickletown Farms in Littleton. The majority of our spring, summer and fall blooms come from other local Colorado farms. We love the local flower farming movement that’s happening across the country. Our goal is to support that movement by bringing locally grown flowers directly to the marketplace. With being mobile, we can literally go everywhere and bring beauty to everyone (within a reasonable driving radius!!)
If you are a local flower farmer, we’d love to work with you! Please get in touch through our contact page.
Beauty lover, seeker, creator.
When my husband and I lived in New York City, one of my favorite pastimes was walking across 28th street to see all of the gorgeous and unique flowers at the wholesale flower markets - doors open wide, bustling florists inside, lush blooms flowing out. My senses would come alive and I was swept up in the beauty. I knew I wanted to get my creative hands on all of those flowers. And eventually, I did. I worked for a nonprofit at the time as an event planner which led to a chance to try out floral design. The next thing I knew, wedding and event requests started rolling in. I was hooked.
Fast forward - many years, two kids, and a move to Colorado - what started all those years ago as a passion and a side hustle has blossomed into a new kind of floral business. One that is a bit unconventional and suits me perfectly. How I got to this place was a little unconventional too. When my son was born, I faced intense trauma right after his birth. I nearly lost my life, left the hospital with a newborn and a homecare nurse (for me) and spent approximately four years rehabilitating my body. During that time, creative outlets were healing to my soul. I spent a lot of time dreaming and scheming about how to develop my floral business. I realized a few key things. That my life, my time and my talents are precious. That my beauty-creating abilities truly bring happiness to people. That I can pursue my passion while being an awesome mama. And also, that I don’t want to be a wedding florist. That was a big realization, and also a bit outside the norm.
Pickletown Flower Co was born out of these realizations. I created a fully mobile flower studio that provides me the opportunity to bring beauty everywhere I go. I love what I do and I can’t wait to share it with you.
