We Heart OKC

Dutch

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.

The shop is unique to the OKC market in that they are not a wire floral delivery service.

“Dutch offers unique flowers to go, either as cash and carry in adorable corrugated paper bundles tied with green velvet ribbon, or in one of their new or vintage containers,” Gibson said, “Every bouquet is made fresh to order and no two look the same, our floral staff have worked alongside Kelly to develop the organic lux look we are proud to provide.”

Along with their gorgeous array of greenery, Dutch also takes pride in offering several other items as well.

Items ranging from Hoboken Coffee (roasted in Guthrie, OK) to glass cake stands and a men’s section from bowties to soap on a rope and cocktail shakers have all been painstakingly sought out by the owners,” Gibson explained.

Dutch also houses the LeErbolario skincare line which is made and packaged in Italy.

“I was given some as a gift from a friend in Italy several years ago and have been a devotee since,” Gibson said. “I was determined to source it for Dutch, even the packaging is in Italian, but trust us… this stuff smells amazing.”

While word has gotten out that Dutch delivers flowers all over OKC and from Edmond to Norman, some folks don’t realize they deliver more than just flowers. They are more than happy to deliver anything in the store, all you have to do is give them a call.

“Long and myself work hard to find interesting high quality products that appeal to us and our peers,” Gibson said. “We believe that quality is our hallmark and we expect our customers to have a great experience and come back often.”

With that we encourage you to get over to Dutch Floral & Home, peruse their phenomenal floras and maybe find a little some for yourself. It’s a trip you won’t regret!
