about clover and the bees

about kristen

I have been flowering for 15 years, growing and learning from the very best. Manhattan to Montauk (and beyond), I have experience slingin’ flowers in just about every setting you can imagine.

I have seen many cycles of trends and witnessed so many changes in both the wedding and floral industry; it has certainly shaped the designer and entrepreneur I want to be, and I am ready to embrace it on my own terms.

I am a wife, and mother of two, and a creative in many aspects. When I am not flowering, I am gardening, foraging or thrifting (a.k.a. ‘treasure hunting’, as my daughter calls it).

My life has been entwined with flowers for so long, that both of my children have had the fortune of growing up in a flower shop; at one time literally tied to me, then eventually playing at my feet.

They are my greatest inspiration for Clover & the Bees. My son, born in March – my Clover – and my daughter, who’s nicknamed Bees.

I would describe my flowering style as organic, whimsy and timeless.

Flowers have the power to bring your entire vision together. They add depth, warmth and are a display of your personal style. They make a space complete.

I want your experience choosing flowers to feel relaxed and personal. From intimate elopements to elaborate weddings, no detail is ever too small.

My goal is to also practice sustainability from inception; sourcing seasonal and local first, renting, re-using and reducing reliance on foam and waste whenever possible.

I believe this needs to become an industry standard, which is why I want to adopt these practices now rather than later – especially a livelihood connected with nature.
