Pleased to meet you!
We’re so honored you’re here. Welcome to the family!
Our team boasts a tremendous amount of creative design talent and when we’re all together it’s pure magic and usually a lot of laughter. Although working in a fast-paced, often high stress, creative atmosphere isn’t always easy. Whether we’re designing 40 centerpieces in the shop or running up and down a 10’ ladder creating an installation, we know how to work hard, have fun, and make it all look good!
Cumulatively, our team has strong backgrounds in studio art, architecture, interior design, communication, visual merchandising, and customer service, but floral and event design is our common thread and our shared passion. We love creating beauty that enriches the lives of our clients on a daily basis as well as life’s most important moments. We look forward to getting to know you and bringing your story to life.
As the owner of Fiore, Chelsea’s love for delivering refreshing floral arrangements and dedication to customer service has earned the shop its award-winning reputation. With 20 years of experience in the design world, Chelsea lives for style and her colorful concepts come from her ability to find inspiration in nature, fashion, and interior design. After earning a degree in Architecture and Art History, she knows design is most powerful when it tells a story and loves layering textures and materials to create compelling spaces and compositions. Chelsea has always wanted to own her own business and cultivate a creative studio for designers to learn, grow, and work together. Chelsea and her husband Logan met in San Diego, CA, and have loved calling Wilmington home since 2011. Together, they have two sweet babes, Lilly and Ryder.

Her warm nature and excellent customer service make all clients feel right at home on the phone or when they step into our shop.
Ally knows how to be most efficient all while making sure everyone is having a good time. When her mind is set, she does not stop until the challenge is completed beyond expectations.

From delivering fresh flowers from the shop to your doorstep, prepping flowers on the design floor, assisting with event set-ups, and helping customers in the shop… We don’t know what we’d do without her!
Returning to Wilmington from NYC, this charismatic soul joined our team in the fall. Graduating from UNCW with a degree in Recreational Therapy, her passion is helping others.

You will find her smiling face delivering fresh blooms to your door and lending a helping hand on the design floor.
