Brooke Gagnier - Owner and Designer


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

Stem and Thistle strives to locally source our florals while working with vendors and wholesalers in Maryland and Virginia. We take advantage of 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 creates with florals and foliage that are unique to each season. Our designs are organic, lush and bold.  We love creating for those who lean toward the wild, edgy and unexpected.
