Christa Akers

Founder / Lead Designer


A Petal To Peddle is a Jersey City based floral design studio specialising in weddings and events. Founded by Christa Akers, we create enchanting floral pieces that strive to honor the natural movement of each stem and bloom. With a focus on sustainable design, our arrangements often include foraged ingredients and botanica grown on local farms. It is with care and consideration for these natural objects that we create designs as unique as the clients we have the pleasure of working with.

Christa

"I grew up in Florida, halfway between thick pine forests and the soft, sloping, white sand of the Emerald Coast. My Mother was always encouraging me to explore nature and nurtured my love of the outdoors from a very young age. Our family is the blue collar sort, working to live for camping weekends and beach days. I remember planting watermelon seeds in my Uncle Johnny's vegetable garden and picking roses from my Aunt Pat's overflowing bushes. It is from these experiences and in this magical place of my childhood that my adoration and fascination with floral design was born. My favored hobby became a passion and eventually lead to the conception of A Petal To Peddle in 2015. It is with the love and support from family and close friends that I am able to realize my happiness daily and for that I am forever grateful."
