STORY

fern + floret is a freestyle focused floral + botanical design studio located in Minnesota. We specialize in fresh flower + botanical design, decor rentals, and styling for weddings, elopements, events, brands, + editorial projects of all shapes and sizes across the Twin Cities, Lakes Area, Central MN, North Shore, + beyond.

fern + floret was established in 2013 in St. Paul, MN. Formerly the bee's knees floral, the company was rebranded in 2017 to the name fern + floret, which better captures my nature inspired approach to floral design, and love of incorporating both florals and foliage into my work. The name was inspired by my favorite foliage (forest ferns) and childhood favorite flowers (wild daisies + black eyed susans). 

fern + floret is owned + operated by yours truly, Ray! I'm a big believer in the power of plants + flowers to completely transform and brighten the atmosphere in any room. Nature offers the best beauty, and fern + floret is about bringing a little botanical magic to your day. We combine professional skill + creative artistry to bring you the highest quality designs that bring you the very best of what nature has to offer.

 

STYLE

Wild, romantic, non-traditional designs are my specialty. From bouquets to full scale installations, I bring an artistic approach to each of my creations. You’ll often hear me using words like whimsical, wild, airy, romantic, and untamed to describe my work. I love to incorporate unexpected textures, color palettes, and unique elements into my designs. I strive to create work that is original, unusual, artistic, and completely personal to each of my clients.

I draw inspiration from nature, creating natural, organic designs that leave you dreaming of wooded forests, mossy groves, lush gardens, vast deserts, and fields of wildflowers. I love working with natural beauty and elements of the earth to create something magical and completely one of a kind. 

I take my design work as seriously as my morning cup of coffee. Each + every piece that leaves the studio was dreamed + designed with care. No matter how big or small, a whole lot of love is poured into each creation.

STANDARD

When it comes to blooms, fern + floret stands for quality. I strive to use stems grown in the US whenever possible, and to use florals + foliage grown locally here in our home state of Minnesota when seasonally available. I’m proud to work with several local farms, as well as small farms across the country. This means that not only are the flowers in your bouquet as fresh as can be, but you're helping support local communities and growers who practice sustainable, chemical free farming methods and pour their love into each bloom.

You can oftentimes find me using foraged wildflower and garden blooms, mosses, branches, foliage, and plenty of woodland ferns in my designs.

In addition to quality, sustainability is also a largely important part of the mission of fern + floret. It's my goal to work towards sustainable business practices in all possible aspects, and do my best every day to take care of the environment that fuels my work.

Is sustainability important to you? I would love to talk more about creating sustainable, local, seasonal floral designs for your event.

SERVICES

fern + floret goes beyond just flowers! I'm a big believer that design is in the details.

We also offer a wide selection of modern, vintage, rustic, and industrial decor rentals to complete your event. Our collection includes a variety of containers, lanterns + lighting, arches + installation pieces, and misc. decor accents. I also have my own custom line of handmade botanically dyed ribbons, runners, and draping fabrics - made from sustainable and vegan organic cotton, and dyed with 100% plant materials. Add in an eye for styling + attention to detail, and you've got a recipe for a gorgeous, one of a kind event.

Together with my team of awesome sidekicks, we offer complete design, delivery, on-site set up, styling, installation, and tear down for weddings, events, and projects of all shapes + sizes. Find out more about our services here.

Hi! I'm Sharayah Krautkremer, but you can call me Ray. I’m the owner, designer, dreamer, + do-it-aller at fern + floret. I'm the flower magician + busy bee behind the scenes, and personally dream up + create each design that leaves the studio.

fern + floret is a product of my love of all things nature combined with my longtime dream to both own my own business and use my hands to create beautiful things for others to enjoy. 

I've always been passionate about creating, and have been living and breathing flowers + plants since I can remember. I find inspiration for my designs in the outdoors- fields of wildflowers, moss covered forest floors, lush rose gardens, ivy covered walls, cactus filled deserts, wild ferns lining trails through the woods. 

I'm a believer in dreaming big, doing things differently, taking risks, and getting my hands dirty. I'm proud to be in the business of doing what I love. I'm incredibly, extraordinarily, ridiculously passionate about plants + flowers, and believe this passion shows in my work.

Before establishing fern + floret in 2013, I had several years of prior experience working for local flower shops and doing freelance wedding work. The first wedding I designed myself was my own in 2012- the opportunity to think outside the box and get creative in dreaming and designing the florals for my own wedding day was when I knew this was the passion that I wanted to pursue, and the idea for fern + floret was born.

In addition to plant lady, I’m wife to my best friend + mama to a small zoo of dogs + cats.

I love nature, animals, plants (duh!), road trips, Star Wars, comic books, music, snacking, all of the coffee, Pokémon, embroidery, gardening, Wes Anderson movies, playing guitar, film photography, Twin Peaks, and all things vintage.

When not flowering, I can usually be found out wandering the woods with my husband Kodie and our dogs, snuggled on the couch with our cats and a good video game, planning our next road trip, foraging in the backyard, watching The Office for the thousandth time, practicing film photography, or scouring thrift shops for vintage treasures. I also own + manage the online shop cat + rose, home of created + curated goods.
