Flower Girl

Can’t get to the florist? She’ll come to you.

Petals on the Go, the Triangle’s first mobile florist has been blooming for just over a year, offering reasonably priced bouquets, custom floral designs and party activities, like DIY flower crowns.

“I like the idea of going to our customers and not waiting for them to come to our doors,” says owner Amanda Malone, who turned a passion for floral arranging into a business but eschewed a brick-and-mortar shop.

She keeps her price point fair and offers high quality blooms so that flowers are accessible to everyone,
earning herself a loyal following.

Indeed, the family has a 15-acre farm by Lake Jordan where they have planted several floral varieties to grow and sell locally. They have snapdragons, dahlias and sunflowers, to name a few.

The truck is also available for parties including flower crown packages for kids and adult design activities. Malone says this part of her business has become increasingly popular with birthday parties, bridal or baby showers and even “Girls Night In” get-togethers, where the guests pay individually to make flower crowns or centerpieces.

“It gives attendees something fun to do,” she says.

Malone also creates custom designed floral arrangements for parties or events when her bright blue truck decorated with pastel flowers isn’t parked outside of Bruegger’s Bagels in North Hills or in front of corporate offices, where patrons often buy bouquets to bring home or keep in their office.
