Matt, with a background in the culinary arts and Tamara, with a background in costume design, sought to build a business together that would compliment both of their artistic talents. In 2006, right out of their garage, they launched Petal Pusher – a floral design workroom.
Their business grew, prompting them to move into a studio in 2008 (just when the economy bottomed out) and buckled down for the tough few years ahead. As the business evolved Matt and Tamara organically discovered that their expertise and clients needs had blossomed beyond flowers, and they created a sister company – Inspired Environments. By offering exquisite boutique rentals, custom fabrication, event design management services and yes, still pushing petals, Inspired Environments has allowed Petal Pusher to elevate their clients events by creating harmonized experiences.
