Our Floral Designer

From the regal mansions of San Francisco to the lush vineyard settings of Napa and Sonoma, Rhonda Stoffel has created event florals to delight the eye and the imagination.  

calshakessincity-cd-cover.jpgHer college studies in illustration and design, fused with her passion for horticulture, has helped produce extraordinary floral designs for over 20 years.   This native Californian has loved getting her hands dirty since she was a little girl. “It was either paint or dirt!” as she likes to say, and things haven’t changed much since then. She gets inspiration from the beautiful natural resources of the Bay Area’s mountains, parks and her favorite seashore tide pools.  Rhonda is primarily known for her wedding work as lead designer for major studios in San Francisco (Floramor, Stanlee Gatti, Ixia), and in her own business for seven years. She is the rare floral designer who actually hand-selects the elements used in her work as she believes it makes a real difference in the finished design. The result? Upon giving Rhonda artistic license to color “outside the lines”, brides and corporate clients alike can always expect the unexpected. Seasonal décor interpreted with texture, detail and unique accents that far surpass the original vision of their special event.  

Rhonda is familiar with nearly every major event site in the Bay Area. No matter whether the event takes place at a hotel, private club or winery, she can produce the perfect floral installation for that location. Her experience makes her an invaluable resource of inspiration for any type of event.
