What’s in a Name?
ZuZu’s Petals is just busting at the seams, designing for a great majority of Kindred Oaks couples along with weddings all over the Austin area! Named after ZuZu Bailey, the daughter of Jimmy Stewart in the holiday classic, It’s a Wonderful Life, our little shop began over 5 years ago in the basement office of Kindred Oaks, and has now grown to be a bustling floral studio that has been featured in recent blogs, magazines and events.
In 2009 we moved from our tiny basement studio to a brand new building. Our excitement was stunned for a moment when on an early morning in February of 2010, our darling shop burned to the ground. But, just like the damaged petals of ZuZu Bailey’s rose, we swept away the debris and created our second shop that turned out even better than before! Only 4 short months after the fire the brand new ZuZu’s Petals Austin re-opened its doors and has never looked back!
Meet our Team
Our team consists of designers who love what they do, and can pull in your personal style to any event, through our passion for design.
Heather Dupuis started off her career with Kindred Oaks setting up weddings, but to feed her creative side she would sneak down into the shop any chance she got, even if it was just to whip up a few boutonnieres! In 2010, she officially took over as manager of ZuZu’s Petals, making a strong push to bring the design of the shop outside the walls of Kindred Oaks, to venues all over the Austin area. With a whimsical design style, Heather likes to implement elements of nature into her work, and will cover just about anything in moss if you let her!
Kathy Maguire and Donna Aleman have been with us since day one and are the ones who launched our dream into a successful floral shop! While they are busy ladies, they are still both very involved with every aspect of the shop! Kathy is a retired teacher whose design style is eclectic, whimsical and a bit out of the box. Donna owns her own wedding consultant business, Ame Soeur Events, and has a more traditional style to her designs.
The two newest members of the ZuZu’s staff are Deirdre McKenna & Jamie Johnson! Deirdre hails from Boston and has over 12 years of experience through KaBloom Florists. She is a well-rounded designer who creates beautiful floral arrangements and is an avid Trivia Night winner! Jamie is a true Austinite who is a musician and has gained great experience from floral designers around Austin. Jamie’s design style tends to fall on the modern side of design.These ladies can create ANY design, whether it is inside the box or crazy to the edges of reality! The beautiful thing is how well they all work together on all the projects to see the clients' vision come to life!
