Meet the Owner
Hello, I'm Lindsey!
Since the beginning, it has been all about inspiration, freedom, empowerment and creativity. Business for Perry's Petals officially began in 2017, where I was blessed to complete my first full service wedding with over 100 uniquely designed small budvases and a huge arch installment overlooking the San Marcos River. [go big or go home right?!] Without the support of friends and family, and them putting their trust in me, I couldn't have landed where I am today.
I have worked as a florist for almost a decade. Flowers have been a huge part of my life, ever since I stumbled upon the Benz School of Floral Design at Texas A&M University. While attending school at A&M [WHOOP!], I took as many floral design courses as I could, and even had to mildly harass and beg the professor to allow me to register as a non-major student. During my time at Texas A&M, I was briefly a member of TAMU SAIFD(Student American Institute of Floral Design) and loved preparing an setting up huge banquets before each home football game. In 2014, I earned my Bachelors of Science in Agricultural Science and began teaching High School Agricultural Science. Alongside running my business, I also teach High School Agricultural Science and Floral Design and have a huge passion for teaching and educating others- especially in the world of FLOWERS.
I married to my high-school sweetheart in November of 2016. After college, we moved to Central Texas where we currently reside in Lockhart with our two heelers, Brother and Gyp and our flock of Guinea Fowl. In 2020, amidst the pandemic and personal medical concerns we stumbled upon a positive light to our dream- 5 acres with an old farmhouse to renovate; we came upon the reality of having the space to GROW, BUILD and CREATE. You know that I was definitely raised on some 90's country when I say, as all that these two 'born-and-raised Houstonians" needed was some "Wide Open Spaces".
I'm the creative and he is the muscle- WE'RE A GREAT TEAM and he is my biggest supporter; I get BIG ideas, and [after he is done rolling his eyes] he helps me bring them to life! No success is made without a little help now and again!
Perry's Petals is a growing wedding floral business with so much on the horizon. I plan to design more weddings and events each year and create lots of beautiful wedding flowers all over Central Texas. Building relationships with local vendors and fellow florists is priority alongside the ever important care for my customers! It is my goal to create even more unique designs and to utilize the freshest ingredients in all that I do. Our customers can expect high quality of work and the ease of partnership with Perry's Petals.
In the coming months you can look forward to many things I have envisioned. You'll be seeing the first crop of locally grown flowers from Lockhart, Texas in the summer of 2021! Our small flower farm will produce flowers to enhance weddings/events and to provide a local natural touch to any gift or home décor throughout the season! Can't wait for you to grow with us!
Creative drive keeps things up to date and interesting. Here are a few things that I absolutely adore and find so much inspiration in:
All things Flowers + Plants, Bees, the Color Yellow, Americana/Folk Music, ATX Hiking Trails, Sunrises, Local Coffee Shops, Agricultural Paraphernalia, Wildflowers, Vintage Finds + Antiques, unique Textures, and Texas Nature and Traditions.

keep up with my daily shenanigans!
