My flower journey all began as a hobby; arranging flowers for family gatherings, catering events, and for my home. For forty years, I worked in my Mom’s catering business, Jeanette Topham Catering, then eventually took the business over. The catering business served my family well but as my four boys grew and went off on their own, I noticed a shift in my life and time for a change. Never in my wildest dreams, did I think I would start my own business doing something that I love!


After a few coincidences and the universe lining up, Parties and Petals was born. I have never looked back.


Since starting my own flower business, I have noticed that the air seems a little lighter and my world a little brighter. At Parties and Petals, I search for the most distinctive, quality blooms for my customers. I prefer to support local and New England flower farmers but am willing to purchase imported flowers as well! I like to forage in-season native flowers on the island to fulfill my approach to making each arrangement unique. 

When I am not playing with flowers, I can be found spending time with my husband, Joe, my sons, grandchildren, Labs, family, and friends.
