You can buy flowers just about anywhere, but when you buy flowers at Dutch Floral & Home, you aren’t just getting some of the loveliest flowers in Oklahoma City, you are getting an experience that will have you coming back.
The inspiration behind Dutch was the desire of Lindsay Gibson of Gibson Events and Kelly Long of Poppy Lane Design to bring their aesthetic to the OKC market.
“A storefront floral and gift shop has been a dream since soon after we met in 2008,” Gibson recalled “but it took a while to find the right space and the right team to pull it together.”
In 2011, Gibson proposed the name to Long as a way to show that they were equal partners in the business and as a reflection of both their design sensibilities.
As an event designer and event floral designer Gibson and Long spend a lot of time thinking about how things should look and feel at an event. This naturally crosses over to everyday life; they thrive on things that inspire them aesthetically and hope that others appreciate their particular style.
Located at 401 N.W. 23rd Street, in what used to be an original Phillips 66 station, the space the perfect backdrop for a shop that is bursting with so much energy.
“The architecture of the building is specific to Phillips stations on Route 66,” Gibson explained. “It was restored by Keith and Heather Paul and was the home of Cheever’s Catering until this past spring when they finally outgrew the space.”
With the new availability, 401 became home to Dutch.
