Our Story

Moonflower is a fusion of artistic expression and love for natural rhythms. It is the manifestation of years of creative endeavors and a dedication to bringing the most beautiful and sustainable elements of nature and agriculture into the framework of a celebration. We aim to show that the beauty of floral arrangements is exponentially more fascinating, gorgeous, and meaningful when the elements are in season, locally harvested, incredibly fresh, and set free from the confines of the traditional approach and reach out to explore motion and space.

       At the heart of our studio is a marriage and a friendship.  Mandy and Steve O’Shea knew from the first day they spent together that they were going to get married, buy some land, and works towards a vision larger than themselves.  Moonflower and 3 Porch Farm are the fruits of their efforts.  The main goals were to be together, make a positive contribution to the environment and the community, and to create beauty.

As the lead designer, Mandy’s intuitive creativity blends with her years of experience and generous nature to produce gorgeously unique floral arrangements. Moonflower is the studio that was born of her vision.

Our design studio is an extension of our farm and our farm is an extension of our design studio.  Both aspects of our world inform each other resulting in a wonderful synergy that expresses itself in our design work. We are passionate about growing the most exciting, romantic and sought after flowers on the market, yet we also have a strong pull to try out new varieties, rare beauties, and gorgeous southern antique varieties that can’t be found anywhere else.  The result is always a one of a kind arrangement and a beautifully personal event.
