More on Our name

Fill 1@3x Created with Sketch.

Origin

The idea behind our new name, "Olivera" came to be on a trip to Mallora, Spain for a floral design workshop. While foraging from olive trees and learning alongside amazingly talented designers, we were able to take a deeper look into the future of our business - our goals, priorities, and dreams. We knew we had more in us. We knew we were ready for the next step. So here we are, a newer, better version of ourselves. 

Meet the owners

Kristen

Kristen loves nature, numbers, design, and problem solving, and how this floral gig combines each of those in a unique way. She geeks out over well organized grocery lists, a good jumpsuit, outdoor adventures, and 5:45am classes at the Y. She requires regular solar charging, always has spidrift in the fridge, and is 5 minutes early to everything. To unwind after flower-filled days, Kristen can be found cooking, binge watching FoodNetwork, or front porch sitting with her better half. Her real life consists of wrangling her two kiddos, Lawson and Grace, with her husband Scott in Richmond’s Northside. They are also the proud parents of studio manager, Bagley.

“bloom beautifully
dangerously
loudly
bloom softly
however you need
just bloom.”

Sarah

Sarah loves cheese, road trips, and a good dance party. She geeks out over perfectly organized rentals, to do lists, finding cheap flights, guessing the Uhaul mileage correctly, and all things HP/Marvel/LOTR. When she’s not peddling petals, you will find her with her people and a bottle of bubbles. Her favorite flower is a ranunculus, she prefers to travel by train, and snacks are always required.  

Her real life consists of a partnership with the tallest and handsomest of gingers Zach with their five pups, three chickens, and a beta named Neville. 

“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

Ahoy!

NEO

In addition to keeping a keen eye on the humans, Neo specializes in napping, being handsome, and collecting wrinkles. He enjoys few things more than cold floors, warm sunshine, car rides, and bottomless snacks.

Shar Pei 

Bagley spends her days amongst the blooms, making sure the humans take frequent breaks to play fetch. She enjoys collecting rocks, sipping water from gold compotes, sleeping in the middle of the action, and sneaking into the flower cooler on hot days.
