Born and raised in the Bay Area, I spent most of my childhood in my parents' Greek restaurant, helping lay sheets of phyllo dough for baklava and arranging flowers in Retsina wine bottles. The electric atmosphere of restaurant life sparked a love for parties and events in me, a skill I have continuously honed by planning everything from birthday celebrations to bridal showers for my extended family. While studying for a degree in fashion merchandising I stumbled into a job at a busy floral design studio, and just like that I was hooked. Despite completing my fashion degree, I spent the better part of the next decade working for some of the best floral designers in the Bay Area, learning to mesh my party planning and design abilities with a newfound love for flowers.
Now, after fourteen years in the business, my entrepreneurial spirit is taking over in the form of Revel Floral. Owning my own business has been a dream of mine since the very beginning, and it is truly a privilege to share my love of color, design, and rich, full florals with my clients.
"Revel means to take great pleasure. If you revel in something, you're not just pleased or even excited; you're overwhelmed by joy." That is how I feel about designing for weddings, events and social gatherings or even just to brighten someone's day. I revel in making beautiful floral arrangements and environments for wonderful clients, making their vision of the perfect event come to life. Revel Floral does weddings and events of all sizes locally or abroad. No set pricing or packages because every event is different and should be customized to the client's wants and needs. Have an upcoming event? Contact Revel for a complimentary custom quote.
