Susan Flowers and Erica Eason Hall were ready for an alternative solution to florals and plant life in their community. There were those shops that were doing fresh cuts and others doing outdoor bedding plants. But these ladies wanted to see more, they wanted indoor miniature ferns and custom designed mossed dish gardens. Susan being quite the world traveler and having years of retail experience paired with Erica's design experience at Garden Trellis in uptown New Orleans, the duo decided it was time to create this in the town in which they both lived and share their vision with the community. And in April 2015, that is exactly what they did. And hence the little shop Oak & Ivy was born.

At the beginning of each work day, Oak & Ivy builds a handful of unique living designs for customers to purchase. Or if a client is looking for something specific, designers at Oak & Ivy customize just about any design to your unique needs from the lush inventory of ferns, ivy, orchids, succulents and more. Clients bringing in their own containers to be livened up with an Oak & Ivy design is quickly becoming the shop's most sought after service.

Oak & Ivy specializes in making beautiful arrangements with living plants.  Their designs are long-lasting and rival fresh cut arrangements. With advance notice and for large events, Oak & Ivy does work with Fresh Cuts. But as for the daily shop designs, they stick with the long-lasting living arrangements.
