Ponderosa and Thyme

Katie Davis, 32, made her first bouquet for her own wedding but didn’t start her flower arranging business, Ponderosa and Thyme, until more than a decade later in 2013.

Davis’ signature touch is styling pieces with more than just flowers. She has always had an affinity for foraging, often adding vegetables to arrangements.

The former Zumba instructor recently brought those teaching skills to her business, offering classes on floral arranging. In October, she’s leading a three-day foraging and floral design retreat in Sisters.

Besides sometimes being asked to stick to a specific color scheme, Davis has the freedom to improvise.

“I love that flowers change the atmosphere of a room. I love that people feel loved by flowers— that’s something I really value,” said Davis.
