Emerald Design is a full service floral, plant, and gift shop located in downtown Evansville, Indiana and serving the tri-state area. We offer in-store flowers and gifts as well as delivery in the greater Evansville area. We also offer flower subscriptions and specialize in weddings and events. All of this is offered through a creative lens with sustainability in mind.
Your event should be as unique as you.
We know that details are what sets one design apart from another and will work with you to tell your story through the details at your event or in your special orders. We will create both meaningful and practical vignettes at your event that will benefit both you and your guests and strive to create perfect gifts for you to give to your loved ones.
We promise to be responsive to emails, phone calls, and texts. We will work with you and other vendors in a friendly manner and commit to give you and your event the personal attention we think is deserved. We only schedule one full-service event per weekend so we can focus on you and we are open to working on special projects and schedules for our in-store designs and classes.
We will work to source the freshest and most unique products for your design. We are constantly educating ourselves about new products and trends. We will use our knowledge of seasonality and availability to choose local flowers and foliages whenever possible. We will locate rental pieces and accessories from local companies as well as wholesale and retail outlets for events. We also commit to choose eco-friendly products whenever possible.
We never create the same thing twice. Each design is unique. Our clients trust us to take their ideas, themes, and aesthetic and expand them beyond their expectations.
Meet Our Team
Some people feel a need to create. I am one of them. I have always been drawn to design and nature, so floral design is the perfect outlet for my artistic side. I view floral design as an artform and feel fortunate to have discovered my medium.
I am a learner and am constantly educating myself about new flower varieties and growing and experimenting with cut flowers. I enjoy the creative process of constructing a unique design and implementing it. The joy I see after bringing a little more beauty into the world makes it invaluable.
In the store, I enjoying connecting with customers and curating items for us to offer. As a former teacher, I use those skills to help others learn about flowers and plants through classes and conversation.
With a small team, we all do a bit of everything but Ash handles a lot of the growing for Emerald Design. She loves getting her hands in the dirt, but you will often see her designing, helping with wedding set ups, and delivering joy, too.
She is a great guide for product development and sourcing with her past retail experience. Ash is a voice in our local food movement and a yoga instructor outside of her work with flowers.
All of us have our hands in all areas but Maddie is our houseplant guru. With a large collection herself, she is able to share how to best care for your houseplant choice. Maddie also helps with floral design, merchandising, and may be delivering your beautiful orders.
Outside of work, Maddie is working on a degree in Fashion at Vincennes University.
Emily has a natural creative eye and is always in touch with new products that our clients will love. Emily primarily works on events with us, designing and creating artful arrangements and installations when she is not working in her other career in the medical world.
