Angela Emig is the creative mind behind Poppy & Clover Floral Design and has been enchanted with flowers from a young age. She loves their crisp, sweet scent, how deceptively fragile they appear, and the countless ways you could combine them perfectly. She spent numerous hours of her childhood running around her mother’s garden or in the forbidden farm land that surrounded her house and enjoyed nothing more than picking wildflower bouquets and bringing them home to her family. This passion for flowers followed Angela into adulthood, although she’s only recently been lucky enough to claim floral arrangement as an occupation.
Angela attended Truman State University and earned a Bachelor’s of the Arts in Spanish with minors in Art History and International Studies. While at Truman, she became smitten with a boy and soon fell in love. Given her love of all things floral, it was never a question that she’d arrange the bouquets and centerpieces for her own wedding and during those busy days leading up to the big event she enjoyed nothing more than trimming, wrapping and arranging flowers into the wee hours of the night. It was then that Angela realized she was meant to “play flowers” for the rest of her life!
In 2008, Angela partnered with the lovely Bridget Kelly of Ornamental Petal and the pair worked hand‐in‐hand for two lovely years. Angela was sad to see her best flower bud (pun intended) move to the West Coast in early 2011, but she took it as a great opportunity to branch out on her own and to start a new business – Poppy & Clover Floral Design – of course!
Angela feels blessed to be the owner of Poppy and Clover and to do what she loves on a daily basis. She approaches each flower with as much excitement as an enchanted youngster and is eagerly awaiting the opportunity to beautify your event!
