Hello, I'm Melissa Orth the proud owner and lead designer of Poppytree Floral! My passion for flowers came about at a very early age, growing up surrounded by lush lilac and healthy peony bushes in upstate New York.  I soon fell in love with all growing things, especially those blooming beauties of nature… Over the years I have been lucky to gain experience through the eyes and hands of many talented floral artists from the woods of my Northeastern home all the way to the sandy beaches of Southern California. I have spent time sharpening my skills and developing a style that is all my own, so that now I can bring you something  special- a blend of my roots and my adventures.  My love has evolved from flowers to weddings, and I am grateful to always give you more than you expect and everything you deserve.

The Poppytree team creates floral designs for every life event; weddings, themed parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, baby and bridal showers and holiday décor in the New York Capital Region and beyond.  We'll help personalize your event to fit your individual style, seasons and surroundings.  With a detailed oriented team we deliver only the highest quality service, artistic designs, and the freshest locally grown flowers.  To help create a unique event, we offer a vast selection of rental items including pedestals, lanterns, wooden vessels, mercury glass, arbors and more.

As of January 2016, Poppytree is located out of our home studio in West Sand Lake, NY. We enjoy meeting our clients either at their venue or our home studio (construction underway!) or if you're an out-of-towner then we can Skype or FaceTime as well. Call to set up a complementary consultation and let the design brainstorming process being!
