Welcome!

A Different Kind of Flower Shop

Stephanie's specializes in the creative, chic and unusual. Floral designs range from classic elegance to funky and over the top! Stephanie incorporates herbs, berries, fruits, feathers and ribbons. Containers are frequently vintage finds, teapots, and crystal compotes.

Weddings are a specialty, and no affair is too large or small. Weddings can be done in the entire Mid Atlantic area. Delivery in the Poolesville area, including Barnesville, Dickerson and Beallsville is free, and for a small charge delivery can be made to all parts of Montgomery and Frederick Counties, MD and most of Northern Virginia and Washington, DC.

We Do Fabulous Weddings for All Budgets!

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees & fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.’” -Lewis Carroll

Sweet summertime faded to Autumn and is soon going to fade into the abyss of Winter; along with each season’s palette, their departure leaves us with a new gift. Stephanie’s Secret Garden Shop would love to help you acknowledge all the wonderful colors and smells this new season brings along with it…

“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.” Victor Hugo

I did not bring you roses
When you searched for something rare,
Instead I brought you daisies
And I hoped you wouldn’t care;

And now I look behind me
With a wistful little smile -
You would have taken dandelions
And loved me all the while.
☾ Linda Ori

Such a fun and lovely wedding at Rocklands Farm!

Stephanie & her “flower friends”
(some would call them employees)
might say they “would rather wear flowers in their hair,
than diamonds around their neck” which Wedding Wire
obviously recognizes and truly appreciates ~

“Hi Stephanie,

I just wanted to thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding this weekend! The flowers were so far beyond what I ever imagined! My breathe was literally taken away when I walked in and saw them. Everything was so perfect and absolutely beautiful! You were a pleasure to work with and I will refer everyone I know to you!

Thank you so so much!!!

Ps…we dropped the urns off on the doorstep to your shop!!
Have a great evening!”

“Hi Stephanie,

My mom and I had so much fun with you the other day. We both agreed that picking out the flowers have been our favorite part of the whole wedding planning process. You made it so easy for us.”

“In joy or sadness flowers are our constant friends” Kakuzō Okakura

Make someone’s day fabulous with a gorgeous flower bouquet or arrangement from our shop. All flower arrangements are custom designed with the recipient in mind, using favorite colors, flowers or fragrances.

Arrangements can be done in vases or “repurposed” containers (mason jars) or simply wrapped in colorful paper with a ribbon bow and delivered for the recipient to arrange in their own vase.
