We were almost “Blumewagen.”
I was sitting outside with a glass of wine one evening when I decided my career as an IT Project Manager wasn’t really for me. I thought back to the summer before, when I visited a flower truck in Nashville and fell in love. It was in that moment I thought “Tulsa can support something like this.” On a mission to bring this dream to Tulsa, I thought finding my own little Volkswagen truck would be difficult, but sure enough one sat for sale about 3 miles away (Gretel)!! She seemed to be waiting for me, glass of wine and all. I knew I wanted her at that very moment, and since the day she became mine, the dream was alive.
Now we’re Gas Petal – a name that pays tribute to Route 66 and Tulsa’s petroleum heritage. Together, Gretel and I hope to bring you a bit of joy and whimsy. I don’t call myself a florist or event planner, I don’t call myself a graphic artist or lettering guru, and I’m certainly not a photographer or writer – but I LOVE dabbling in each of these areas. Now, I get to use those passions and skills to create and design with beautiful flowers.
Thanks for visiting us online and in-person. We hope to see you again soon!
