Meet the friendly faces behind all of your perfectly coiffed blooms.
Our fearless leader and barefooted hippy child at heart, Erin brings over two decades of high-end event floral experience to the team. When she's not knocking out the most gorgeous bouquets and arrangements, she can be found roaming her hobby farm with lots of cute animals and her sweet-as-pie children, Stella, Oscar and Leo. She thanks her mother for her groovy middle name and for so clearly defining her destiny.
Plant and cat lady? Kayla's pretty ok with that label. Kayla is vintage d*p staff, taking a few years away from the shop for a design stint in Chicago and picking up some serious plant knowledge along the way. Kayla loves walking in the woods, hunting down good music, baking a solid quiche, and snuggling with her kitty, Morty.
You don't know "infectious laughter" until you've met Hannah. Hannah is a seriously sunny spot in everyone's life and a talented artist recently finishing her art degree at the UW. When she's not educating us on everything internet viral or installing her latest work somewhere, she's probably snuggling her kitties or painting in the park.
Katie is a true floral visionary. Macrame! Dinosaur claws! Moss bouquets! And constantly envisioning nail polish and lipstick colors based off of poppies and peonies. When she has time away from her busy career, she cherishes her two precious girls - Veda and Sloan. Katie is totally the mom that helps with math class but also jumps in the pool with all her clothes on!
With roots firmly planted in the Driftless region of Wisconsin, Casey is our resident consultant on all things sustainable. She has several years of experience in organic farming and gardening, field to table cooking and outdoor event planning. Casey is an old soul and believes that happiness is flowers on the table, friends in the kitchen and a travel plan in the works.
Ariyl is the sugary sweet center of the daffodil*parker team. Hailing from Seattle, Ariyl found her floral place in Madison after matriculating from a west coast design school. This girl is the best baker on the block, plays a mean pickleball, and won't leave you without a warm smile on your face. Ariyl and her husband, Travis, have two of the cutest, blondest boys on the planet, Emmett and Elliot.
Bonnie is the rock of our shop and always has the best listening ear. She is the champion of all of our pristinely crafted boutonnieres and corsages, with decades of floral experience. Bonnie is always down for a good DJ, a Marvel movie and spending quality time with her amazing family. (Also seen here is Bella, a d*p seasonal employee and her daughter!)
Rita is the only thing that is sweeter that the delicious baked goods she creates. Splitting her time between d*p and a downtown bakery, on her rare day off she loves to spend time with her lovely fiancee.
