STEMS has a founding story that is as unique as the arrangements they sell. They opened their doors in 2018 after founder Stephanie Groom spent years studying and practicing floristry overseas in England before finally coming home to Iowa. While in England, Stephanie created floral arrangements for weddings and events for friends and family, all while earning a design degree! However, the call to return to Iowa was just too strong to ignore, so Stephanie decided to bring her passion and skills back home.
Flowers can be a part of moments both big and small, for occasions both celebratory and solemn. Knowing this, Stephanie and the team at STEMS treat every arrangement like it’s the most important thing in the world, because for the customers—the reason for the flowers usually is.
“We get to be a part of most major events in a client’s lifetime,” said Stephanie. “Whether it is happy or sad, I consider it a privilege to be chosen to help during these times.”
Whether you’re looking for flowers to celebrate a loved one’s accomplishment, mark an anniversary, show sympathy to a friend during a time of mourning, or for anything else—let STEMS create the perfect arrangement for you!
