Julia Girdler


I've always loved flowers.  After leaving my job to stay home with my 3 boys, I was inspired by my "Milk Man"  to become "The Petal Lady" and make weekly bouquet deliveries.  As word spread, I was asked to create flowers for events and weddings and I've never looked back!  No matter what the occasion, it's a great honor to play an important role in someone's special day.  It's an absolute joy.  

I became a Chapel Designer in 2016.  The Chapel Designers are an international collective of wedding and event floral designers that offers daily inspiration, interaction, and support from the most creative leaders in the industry.  This group provides a nurturing environment for a creative voice and encouragement for growing The Petal Lady.  

In addition to this, I'm a member of the Detroit Institute of Arts Friends of Art and Flowers and frequently attend workshops to stay current with the latest trends and techniques.
