Alex Avdoulos, Owner + Lead Designer

Alex founded Petals & Roots with her husband, Peter in 2012. She grew up in a family of florists and was exposed to the type of love and admiration of nature and design that would shape her future. She attended Purchase College in NY and graduated with a degree in Visual Arts. After her own wedding in 2009, the pair began building a plan to open their own company that would offer bespoke floral and event design infused with personality, kindness, attention to detail and an understanding of what people want now; floral design centered around natural beauty. Pete and Alex have two creative boys and live in Astoria, Queens.
