Devon & Pinkett, based in Philadelphia, offers custom floral & event design for weddings, events & styling projects.
The ‘behind-the-scenes’ in creating all the beauty that we do, is raw, inspiring, fueled with coffee and fast paced. We source flowers and décor elements from the finest purveyors around the globe from Holland to Japan to our friendly flower farmers right here in Philadelphia. We believe in being as green as possible, sourcing local flowers whenever possible, repurposing boxes, recycling, composting and using as little foam as possible in our design work. We hold ourselves to the highest standards, so you can expect nothing less.
Kate, owner and lead designer of Devon & Pinkett, has over ten years of experience in art and design. She started her career as a fashion designer, working in New York City, surrounded by high end artists, designers and purveyors of fine art and fashion, which nurtured and developed her discerning eye for design.
Kate is first and foremost, an artist, starting a very young age, winning awards and recognition along her way for her unparalleled sense of color, space, composition and design. Kate is formerly a fashion designer, having worked for numerous firms in NYC and LA. Kate has traveled to LA, Las Vegas and Paris for fashion and textile shows, which have left a lasting impression upon her creative life.
Kate’s love of flowers started from a young age, largely thanks to the women in her life growing up, all of whom admired gardening. When Kate’s mother allowed her to plant some seeds in the garden, when those first wild columbine’s blossomed, Kate was hooked for life. Kate’s mother inspired her with her love of party planning and her grandmothers were both artists. Kate’s godmother was a respected florist and landscape architect, having designed countless exhibits for the Philadelphia Flower Show. All of which influenced Kate in her creative journey.
Kate has studied at Longwood Gardens, the Flower School of New York, and has attended numerous floral and design conferences, having learned from some of the most influential and successful designers of today, including Ariella Chezar, Holly Chapple, Robbie Honey, Naomi De Mañana, Joseph Massie and Sarah Winward to name a few. Kate is a part of a prestigious international network of floral and event designers, The Chapel Designers.
