Favorite Friday Vendor Spotlight: Stoneblossom


The Perfect Details caught up with owner Joyce Holland of Stoneblossom Floral & Event Design to get the "in" on what's going on in the floral industry. With eloquent and unique designs, Stoneblossom knows what, when, where, and how to do it!


TPD: How did you get involved in the floral/design business and how many years have you been at it?
Joyce (SB): Prior to opening Stoneblossom in 1995 I owned a retail store, Blue Angel in Providence. There I was surrounded by such beautiful and unique things that really inspired me to put my creativity to use. From there I decided to take a break from retail and went to New York City to study floral design with renowned designer Mary Fitzgerald. I guess you can say the rest is history.

TPD: What makes Stoneblossom Unique?

Joyce (SB): I think that what makes Stoneblossom so unique is our staff. Being surrounded by people with so much passion and enthusiasm for what they do creates such an amazing atmosphere throughout our design studio and I believe that truly shows in all of our work.

TPD: What flowers are in season right now and what is the “go-to” flower that most clients choose?

Joyce (SB): One of the biggest trends we’ve seen this season is very clean and simple designs in shades of white, phalaenopsis orchids especially. Hydrangea is also popular this time of year, very classic. Recently our clients have really been liking Dahlia, the colors that we have been seeing are so striking. One of our favorites as well as the “go-to” for our brides are Peonies, we love springtime flowers!


TPD: What is the most challenging part of what you do?

Joyce (SB): I see all challenges as opportunities for discovery

TPD: What is the most rewarding part?

Joyce (SB): To me the most rewarding part of this business is working closely with clients and my staff, watching all of our ideas and hard work come to life.

The Perfect Details would like to thank Joyce, Kelly, and the rest of the AMAZING staff at Stoneblossom. We love working with you and congratulate you on your continuing success!
