Welcome! My name is Cara and I am the owner of Ribbon and Twine Floral.  Specializing in wedding and event flowers and decor, and offering one-of-a-kind arrangements for local delivery, R & T is a full-service design company serving the entire state of Oregon and beyond. I love to create art through flowers with a focus on unique color combinations, elegant seasonal blooms and textural elements. 

My talented team and I love what we do and believe flowers are what make any occasion come to life. Please don't hesitate to get in touch, we look forward to meeting you!

a little bit about

Originally from San Francisco, I graduated from SFSU with a BA in Communications in 2009 but decided that path wasn't going to lead me to my dream job. I decided to follow my heart and went to CCSF to study floral design in 2013. After working my way up the ranks, I managed an amazing flower shop before moving to Colorado where I started Ribbon and Twine Floral in Boulder in 2016. I've continued my studies training under some of my favorite designers, Kiana Underwood of Tulipina and Susan Mcleary of Passionflower Sue-to name a few.

While in Colorado I met my now husband Matthew. Together we moved to Portland, Oregon to be near friends and family and to re-launch R & T right in the basement of our new townhome. Our speakeasy-style flower shop has become a special place to design, teach and meet with clients. We welcome you to book an appointment and come by for a visit!
