Brooke Gagnier - Owner and Designer

Flowers brighten days, deliver happiness, and inspire smiles - giving you an experience to enjoy.  Florals are the perfect touch for any occasion and a delightful surprise when given, or received, for no reason at all.  It's the little things in life that provide so much joy, and flowers do just that!  


Stem and Thistle ‚Äčis a boutique floral design studio based in Arlington, VA.  We service the DMV and specialize in petite parties, personal celebrations, social events, styled shoots, weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, and everyday florals. We personally get to know our clients to achieve a floral aesthetic that reflects their style, life, and love story.


We strive to locally source our florals while working with vendors and wholesalers in Maryland and Virginia. We also work with garden rose farmers in California.  At times we head out into the great outdoors to forge for the unexpected, yet perfect pieces to include in our work.  For the most abundant and gorgeous materials, Stem and Thistle uses florals and foliage that are unique to each season. We create designs that are organic, natural, and unique.
