Stems and Shoots expands estate services


By Dorie Cox

Stems and Shoots in Fort Lauderdale has expanded its yacht floral design and photography services to include estates and events.

Company owner Anna Kozma started the business three years ago when she discovered her love for flowers and floral arrangements as a yacht stew. Kozma creates floral arrangements in her home and delivers for yachts, business and estates from Miami to West Palm Beach, Florida.

“A few years back I decided to enroll in some floral courses and get a job in a flower shop to gain the experience I needed to one day create a business of my own,” Kozma said. “After many busy seasons onboard yachts as a cook and stewardess, I decided to combine my other love, photography, to the floral arranging, and Stems and Shoots was born.

“I feel that I bring a personal approach to a stewardess and enjoy meeting with them, customizing their arrangements to the yacht as well as picking up vases they might want to reuse,” she said. “The yachting community has been the key to helping my business grow. I feel so lucky to be a part of it.”
