The defining elements of “flowers in flight” floral art remain simplicity, elegance and the unique qualities of locally grown flora.

Tell us about your business.

Flowers In Flight. We are a family owned business that began in the spring of 1984 as the original flower cart on Pioneer Courthouse Square in Portland, Oregon. For the first 20 years of operation, the 3 founding sisters worked to elate and educate clients and recipients alike with the beauty of fresh flowers.We are now in our 29th year and have for the past 8 years been owned and operated by 2 of the original 3 sisters: Mary Anne Huseby, floral artist extraordinaire and Pat Hutchins, plant lady and watercolor artist. Cheri Huseby-Jones moved with her husband to Washington state where she pursues her other passion–public education. The design work of Flowers In Flight is unmistakable. Mary Anne’s color sense and amazing touch with balancing various flowers, greens, berries, pods and other natural elements keeps our work in a class by itself. Honestly, in a room full of floral arrangements, the presentations of Flowers In Flight are always easily identified as outstanding.

What makes your business stand out?

From the outset, we have focused on and promoted locally produced flowers, plants, pottery and glass. Recently, we have decided to focus on containers that are recycled in addition to the case packs we buy for event work. We are not new to the local and sustainable mantra that we are so delighted to see taking root now. In addition to shopping with our fellow Portland area growers, we produce our enclosure and greeting cards from Pat’s original water color paintings. These cards are reproduced using environmentally sensitive papers and inks in small family owned print shops in Portland.
