About

Susan Tom-NellisOur Philosophy
Peony & Plum’s floral creations are designed with more than just aesthetics in mind. When you choose our work we believe you are “inviting” our designs to be part of your event. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly. We believe floral design can add an unspoken message to your occasion. Beyond visual impact, Peony & Plum embraces the idea that floral design can set the tone of a stylish corporate event, a bride’s bouquet can whisper an intimate sentiment to the groom, and centerpieces can exude coziness even at a grand celebration.

About the Founder
Peony & Plum is the inspired idea of owner, Susan Tom-Nellis. Susan brings a fresh approach to floral design – having grown up in colorful and casual Honolulu, Hawaii, she fuses these island sentiments with her understanding of composition and form gained from her studies of painting and photography at UCLA’s prestigious Department of Art. Add to the mix, Susan’s previous experience as a Creative Director in advertising and marketing, and you’ve got a talented woman who keeps calm under pressure. Susan’s unique background leads to floral creations that are sophisticated yet whimsical, where traditional elements live happily alongside the unexpected. 

We look forward to helping you create a spectacular and memorable event.
