How We Got Started

Flora Design Studio grew from a seed that was planted in 2001 and has blossomed into a unique business. We serve the needs of discerning bridal and special event clients as well as beautiful and unique creations for everyday occasions.
​ Flora owner and chief designer Julie Odum comes from an extensive art background which lays the groundwork for all of her designs. Julie’s professional path started after receiving her BFA in Fine Art from the University of Illinois.  Her artistic training, understanding of color, composition, design and love of flowers led her to the creative process of the floral arts.  Julie takes great pleasure and pride in combining her love of design and flowers to create artful and unique floral pieces that excite the senses and celebrate the people they represent. 

Our Studio

The Studio is where we hold wedding and event consultations and create most of our designs.

Our Store

The remodel and design of our store has been a major undertaking, and is still underway.  We proudly provide unique gift items designed and manufactured in the US.
