We look forward to using nature and its beauty to create magical moments and memories in your life.
Ona Rose Floral is a boutique floral design studio based in Bethesda, Maryland on the outskirts of Washington, D.C.
We specialize in creating one of a kind arrangements and floral designs which are solely sourced from flowers within owner, Ona Pappas' gardens, local flower farms, and growers across America.
Choosing the right floral designer for your special event is a very personal choice. You must feel completely confident in the ability of your designer to execute your vision.
We limit the number of clients that we work with to ensure that we can give our clients the individualized service that they deserve. We never sacrifice attention to detail due to an overbooked schedule and we provide an extremely personal approach often unseen in the event industry today.
In addition to event design, we also offer seasonal a la carte wedding florals, daily arrangements for your home and celebratory occasions, as well as private workshops.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Owner & Lead Designer
Ona Rose Pappas
Inspired by nature and molded by summers spent with her grandmother, owner and lead designer, Ona Pappas is passionate about all things which grow from Mother Nature. Many of her childhood summers were spent in upstate New York, a place she remembers fondly as a wildly magnificent place full of every magical thing one child might imagine. Days were spent foraging for berries and flowers, tending a garden, going on bear hunts, and building castles of hay in the barn. Hours were spent laying in the grass seeking the elusive four leaf clover and creating creatures in the clouds. Summers always seemed to bittersweetly end so quickly and it was always the following summer that she craved the return to her magical place.
As years passed and she grew older, responsibility and distractions took hold but she never lost the love, passion, and memories that her grandparents farm gave her.
Now, a mother to two young daughters her desire and love for growing flowers, gardening, and creating beauty from nature has only gotten stronger and continually reconnects her to the scents and moments of years so long ago.
She is extremely dedicated to the growth of our local flower farmer community and cherishes getting to know each of their stories. She feels that it is a great honor to share with her clients these stories and the history behind their events blooms.
Ona Rose Floral Design is the culmination of her childhood adventures and adult dreams.
