Aside from its eye-catching name, Chloe Stagner’s Picked Flower Co is known around town for its distinctive Flower Truck. “We're Houston's only full service luxury flower shop,” explains Chloe who entered the world of floristry when she couldn’t find a flower shop to service her own needs. “My family is from Holland where there are flower shops and carts on every corner! When I graduated college in Houston, I realised there were no cute flower shops, and decided to start one myself!”
Now she works with a small team in Houston’s Midtown area – including co-owner and Director of Operations, Regan Barwick – and sources flowers from all over the world based on quality, beauty, and uniqueness. For Chloe the best thing about working with flowers is the reactions they inspire. “The joy our flowers bring to those who receive them is by far the most rewarding part of the job. There is no occasion where someone is disappointed to receive flowers. They are such beautiful reflections of sentiment and tase, no matter the occasion, a great gift of flowers says so much!”
If Chloe were a flower (or a plant), she would be a monstera leaf, “They are simple and perfect, but add so much wherever they are”.
