Jordan was born and raised in the beautiful Texas Hill Country area, where she and her family spent most days farming and gardening. In 2005 she got her first job at the local flower shop. It was love at first smell. Her passion and love of the industry continued throughout high school and college. Jordan continued working in floral design and special events jobs, after moving to Austin and worked under one of the top flower shops in the nation. After a while, Jordan ventured out on her own. Years in the industry, she realized most flower businesses have two things in common: high costs to the customer due to high overhead and mediocre flowers services. Jordan’s goal is to help clients have gorgeous events and flowers at a REASONABLE rate with the FRESHEST flowers, TOP designs, and wonderful customer CARE. In 2012, Jordan hung out the shingle for Jordan Flowers & Events and set up shop.
Jordan lives in the “Pfabulous” town of Pflugerville with her charming husband, handsome son, and yappy fur baby. If Jordan is not planning an event or project, she is running/peddling around town with her son or volunteering with Meals On Wheels. She is a proud member of the Texas Floral Association and a contributing writer for Texas In Bloom Magazine.
