new & upcoming


local and all-american flowers

pot & box is committed to grow and source the freshest seasonal and local flowers--from our own cutting gardens or from local flower farmers friends, and ALWAYS from american farms. two things we love are to grow particular flowers especially for our clients and know the names of the farmers who grow flowers. then, our blooms more than just a pretty face. 

we are also foam-free, opting for hardware choices that are environmentally- and socially- friendly. 

 

zero waste goal

even in our natural industry of floral design, packaging and other materials all-too-easily end up in landfills. we're focusing our sustainability efforts on the lofty goal of becoming zero waste. as we strive to reduce, we think you'll appreciate doing business with us even more.

pot & box founder lisa waud has been enthusiastically steering the horticultural goings-on of pot & box since founding the business nine years ago. she’s been arranging flowers in the soil & in the vase for over 15 years—from the volcanic slopes of hawaii, the clay garden beds of the pacific northwest, & across the great [lakes] state of michigan.

lisa lives in detroit, and when she’s not playing with flowers, you can find her scheming up field trips with her giant dog zero or planning explorations in other inspirational cities.

 

in lisa’s words: i love to work with flowers blooming now and nearby, celebrating the richest hues, most fragrant blooms, the abundance of seasonality. i thrive on the uncommon and unexpected, applauding a determined weed growing out of a brick wall, the unusual variegation pattern on a peony’s petal, a tattooed bride’s arms cradling a delicate bouquet. i excel when tasked with realizing the visions of my clients, arranging stems to suit the celebration, bringing event decor ideas to life,  striving for the breathtaking gasp of elation.

lisa is also the creator of flower house

what the people are saying


"we can’t thank you enough for everything. you exceeded all our expectations. everything, the table arrangements and bouquets were exquisite. we all loved the special touches, the lavender and the greenery that made them unique and even more beautiful.  I have seen photos of weddings ceremonies performed in the same space as dave and alex’s and honestly, they kind of look like they were staged at a conference of some sort. your beautiful floral wall created a backdrop that was just breathtaking. of the photos I’ve seen so far, my favorite is a combination of three images of the ceremony in front of the mirror framed by your floral background. that’s the print I’m planning to order to frame. and finally, while it is standard for you, it jolted me a little that those gorgeous flowers were headed for a compost pile. we used them for the tables at the party the next day. then, taking my cue from you, I decided I needed my own compost pile and alex’s wedding flowers got it started this week."

"I had a last minute wedding that needed flowers and such and lisa was so incredibly fun to work with. the flowers were PERFECT beyond my wildest wedding dreams. everything I have ordered from pot & box has been so meticulously put together and special. huge recommendation from this happy bride!"

– mary b. 

"I never write reviews but now I can't say that anymore as I am definitely writing this one!  I cold-called a few florists (I'm in California) and either I was rushed on the phone or calling in the morning the earliest the flowers would be delivered was the next day!  I loved the name pot & box so tried there next hoping I would feel the love and help I so desperately needed.  I received that BIG TIME from lisa.  anyway, in discussing wanting something different and not just a bunch of flowers stuck in a vase, an asian-flair design was born.  if a cell phone picture sent to me looked ever so beautiful than you know the real thing was even better.  I HIGHLY recommend this florist if you want inspiration, helpfulness, patience and they even designed and got the flowers to their destination in less than two hours!  I could go on and on but I was so pleased!!!"
