MEET OUR TEAM 

 

Q & A:

What attracted you to this business?

I grew up in Germany where we had to choose an apprenticeship after high school. I wanted to be a landscaper because I liked the idea of doing something on a big scale, but they laughed and said I was too small. Becoming a florist was the next thing in my mind. I never regretted it!

What is your favorite part of your job? 

I love being creative and I love making people happy with the result. 

What is your favorite flower? 

I have so many favorites, but I would have to say tulips, ranunculus and peonies. They all have a unique shape and have the most beautiful faces.

 

What makes Themes & Flowers unique? 

We are not an ordinary flower shop business. We can dream big and do bigger things. We are able to concentrate on what the client wants and envisions. Nothing is ordinary or routine. There's a different twist each time. 

"I like challenges. I thrive on challenge. It helps you stay fresh

and creative."

Q & A:

What is your favorite part of your job?  

I am attracted to creativity. I love selling different looks to meet the specific need of the client. My job is great because I am able to manage the process from start to finish; I am able to see everything come together. 

What is your favorite flower and why? 

I love tulips because I feel like they live with a mind of their own. They continue to grow, open and close. They do their thing without any prompting from anyone. 

Do you have a favorite event that you managed at Themes & Flowers? 

We were hired to do the first party under "The Endeavor" spaceship. It was breathtaking. It was truly remarkable to stand next to something that had gone so far and done something so special. I really enjoyed managing the space-oriented theme to harmonize with such a special time.

Q & A:

What is your most memorable moment at Themes & Flowers? 

In September 2001, we were hired to do a large job in Salt Lake City. The event was for a multi-level marketing company with an astronomical budget. With a 7 day event for 4000 people, I remember being thrilled at the opportunity to dream bigger and better! I will never forget how rewarding that job was. It felt like there were endless possibilities and the client went out of their way to compliment us on all of our amazing ideas. 

What is your favorite flower and why?

 Red roses because they helped me win my bride, Polly. Giving her a bouquet of red roses made a big impression with her. I was the first guy that knew she was a florist but gave her flowers anyway. 

What is it about Themes & Flowers that makes it so unique?

We deliver sincere personal care to all of our clients. Our attitude comes from an innate desire to serve our customers. And our customers notice that. We could not count the number of times that our customers go out of their way to acknowledge that difference in our service.

Q & A:

What is your most memorable moment at Themes & Flowers? 

My moment happened long before I began working as the social media and marketing manager at Themes & Flowers. Longtime family friends, the Nowak family always utilized their talents to make my childhood birthday's the coolest child birthday party my friends had ever seen! From my 12-year-old birthday, where I popped out of a giant cake to my 10-year-old American Idol birthday talent show with a full stage floral, my friends were floored. Now I am so excited to be working for people I have long admired for their talent, drive, and standards of business. 

What is your favorite flower and why?

Anything black! also, sunflowers, which seems like a dichotomy but that perfectly describes my personality and taste!

What is it about Themes & Flowers that makes it so unique?

We deliver professional large-scale floral and prop services, while also utilizing the passion behind family-run business.

I love working with our clients to help them come up with the perfect look for their event.  It’s so rewarding to search and find exactly what they want to make their event something memorable.   

 

What is your favorite flower & why?

Daisies- they were my wedding flower and we even named our Australian Shepherd Daisy

 

Do you have a favorite event that you managed at Themes & Flowers?

I love the sunset at the beach so anytime we have an event that incorporates those elements, I’m happy.

The family atmosphere and talented, hardworking people make T&F a special place to work.
